Jacqueline: Question D: What major ideas/themes from this event do we still experience? How is this still relevant to our lives today?

-A major theme from the events that occurred from 1914-1934 is racial superiority.

-Hitler took advantage of Germany’s low morale by blaming economic, social, and political problems on the Jews.

-He made the Germans think that they were the superior race.

-Today, there are people who think they are superior because of their race and background.

-We should remember the Holocaust so we don’t discriminate to the point of genocide ever again.
