The Holocaust And Native American Removal: Acts Of Rebellion, Social Issues, And Methods Of Removal

883 words - 4 pages

Westward Expansion and the Holocaust bring about many examples of cruelty and pain. The list of these is endless and so we must focus on only a few. The Nazis began deporting Jews under the orders of Adolf Hitler. This is much like the Native Americans. The orders were given to the Cherokee to flee their land to a new reservation by General Winfield Scott. These two genocides are alike in their methods of deportation, the rebellious actions of their oppressed and the prison-like waiting areas before deportation. They are different in the groups targeted, their leaders, and their views on inter-racial and cultural beliefs.

Ghettos isolated Jewish communities by separating them from both the non-Jewish population and from other Jewish communities (Holocaust).” The Holocaust and Indian removal were alike in these key three ways.
These two genocides were also unalike in the groups targeted. For example, “only a member of the [German] race can be a citizen… no Jew can be a member of the race” “(Gottfried 18”).This is an example of how the Nazis believed that their culture should not be absorbed into the Jewish ways of life. The American’s evangelistic point of view was quite the contrary. “Many Indians had taken on European cultural traits, including religious conversion, and worked their lands using white methods” (“Indian”). Another way the genocides were different was their groups targeted. According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the targets of the Holocaust were European Jews (“Deportations”). With the Indian removal, things were different. The removal involved all of the five “civilized tribes” as they were called- Creek, Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and some Simonoles (“Indian”). A final way of differentiation was their leaders, for example, the Holocaust was led by Hitler. While the former controlled that particular genocide, according to an article in understandingrace.org by the American Anthropological Association, General Scott led the attack on the Indians. The Holocaust and Indian Removal are unalike in these three ways.
The Holocaust and Indian Removal were two very violent and cruel genocides. Both claimed countless innocent lives and still till this day continue to impact the lives and ideas of countless citizens. They were both similar in their ways of transportation of victims,...
