Teens Against Hitler

Pre-reading

I believe that the teens were against Hitler because he would cause them harm if they were Jews and sadness by drafting their father or their brothers etc. This can cause great sadnesses for different people. Family and friends of Jews could've have experienced sadness because of the Jews being sent to concentration camps and dying there. They might be sad because they might lose their friends or family from them going to war. Even if they survive the war the other people still might not see them again. During the actual war the Holocaust costed the lives of many and destroyed the homes of many. Many civilian people died too from the atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima to the many air raids in Germany. From the information I've provided about my opinion you can see why I think this.
