The Witch Trials were part of many reoccurring events that will continue to repeat itself in the world today.Similar events that have happened include the Holocaust,the Red Scare,and Japanese Internment Camps.All of these events happened after the Witch Trials but were all similar in which the insensible ideas of a few people were followed by many others. The Witch Trials happened during the 16th and 17th century,during which over 100,000 people in Germany were tortured and murdered as a result of accusations being made against them.Anyone who was accused of being a witch or practicing witchery was tortured until they admitted to being a witch.
After the accused admitted to being witches, they were hanged to their death.Judging people as guilty on account of only what people say,and not on actual evidence is very absurd. The Red Scare was an event that happened between 1940 and 1950 that took away CommunistsFirst Amendment Rights to their choice of political parties.
The Red Scares main goal was to get rid of anyone who was a communist and to get rid of communism everywhere.Those accused of being a communist were sent to jail to be investigated and there rights taken away from them.The United States took away peoples right to choose what form of a government because they didn’t like communistic idealism. The Holocaust happened between 1933 to 1945.The genocidal plan that Adolf Hitler came up with was to exterminate all the Jewish people in the world.All the Jews that could be captured by Hitler’s army were imprisoned and sent to concentration camps.
At the camps,these prisoners were starved of food, water, and other basic daily needs.Newly arrived prisoners were some times sent to their deaths in the gas chambers.This idea that Hitler had was followed by millions of the German people and army which led to the end of millions of jews lives….
