Remembering the Holocaust

Work Sets You Free
This concentration camp had a sign over the top of the entrance that said, "work sets you free" in German. This is relevant because most Jews in the concentration camp died after arriving or after days of non-stop work.
These children await their fate as they stand behind the fence at one of the camps that the Germans had established.
Adolf Hitler was the leader of Nazi Germany at the time during the Holocaust.

People in today's society label gay people by the way they dress, and the way they sound when they talk. We also label Muslims to be terrorists because of all the fighting that has gone on in different countries with ISIS and other areas. It has come to the extent of posting on social media that when people are around Muslims they will publicly harass them just because of the way the dress and the way they are labeled.
Although America has previously passed laws allowing gays to marry legally in all states, it wasn’t that way before. This law gave gays their rights as citizens to marry whomever they choose to marry. This means that they were not given the same civil rights that other people were who lived in the same country.
Recently ISIS has been terrorizing the Middle East for numerous years, and the group that they have organized is committing mass murder.
Nuremberg laws prevented interracial marriage. The German schools began preaching that the Jewish should be excluded from public schools and communities. They also blamed the Jews for all the economic and social problems in the country. Germans were supporting the hatred of the Jewish. Jewish people were driven apart from their houses and torn apart from their families and old lives.
The same idea with legalizing gay marriage can apply here as well, just as the Nuremberg laws prevented interracial marriage, there was no law passed that there could be same-sex marriage in the United States.
In the early 2000's the Darfur genocide showed extreme preparation, due to the building of camps and transporting the people they were taking captive to those camps. They would then rape, slaughter, and starve their prisoners.
The actual killing that ISIS is committing would be forms of extermination because they are taking people and holding them captive, and then murdering them. Over 300 were killed for their religion alone.
Denial can be found in any court, and although it doesn't have to be against genocide most are against committing a murder. There are people who go to court and are found guilty yet still refuse to say that they killed a person, and just blame it on someone else, or say that they didn't know what was going on at that point in time.
