What were the Aryans contribution to Indian civilization?

They created the caste system while very primitive it was new to the world.

In fact, Aryans were not any particular community or people.

According to Vedic Dharma, the ancientmost Religion and Philosophy, the word Arya means NOBLE.

According to Vedas, the ancientmost scriptures of the world, Arynas were the Indians who practised the teachings of Vedasand in those teachings, there was a division of society into four classes.

Manu Rishi in Manusmriti ( the treatise written by him), he defined these classes as follows :

Brahmins : The pious, the learned, the priests and purohits

Kshatriyas : The rulers, the warriors, and administrators

Vaishya : The traders, bankers and the agriculturists

and Shoodras :The artisans, workers and servants

And they practised these classes as their professions.

It was only when there erupted, created, manipulated or planned degeneration in the Religion and Culture of India, whether by Indian scholars or Invaders, these classes got termed as Castes, by passage of time, of which India has suffered for centuries and is suffering still.

Aryans gave not only to India but the whole Universe a civilization, a philosophy of life and a culture to live a peaceful, prosperous, happy and healthy life.

It can be summarised as Aryans gave to the humanity a proper Way to Lead Life.

first incorrect answer:

The Allied powers encouraged the formation of the State of Israel.

second improved answer:

After the war ended, the Allied Powers charged various persons with war crimes or crimes against humanity, and then put these people on trial and then administered their sentences. The Allies also created a list of persons to hunt down for arrest.

Each of the Allied powers viewed the formation or reestablishment of the State of Israel differently. Some supported while other opposed it. After the nation of Israel was formed, then the various nations came to recognize Israel legally over a period of time.

How did invasions affect the Jewish?

The question is pretty simple. Jews were the ones targeted specifically throughout the Holocaust. When invasions arrived, they were to be rounded up first and sent to ghettos and then transferred to concentration/extermination camps. Life was really hard for them in Europe while Hitler was in control, but they were persecuted and hated centuries ago.

Why did Hitler blame the Jews for Germany's problems?

Hitler believed in conspiracy theories that regarded the Jews as Communists and claimed that they had deliberately made Germany lose World War 1 by causing strikes, subversion and revolution on the home front. He also said that they had deliberately caused the Great Depression. Worst of all, some of these conspiracy theories claimed that the Jews were seeking world domination and were therefore in competition with Germany's bid to dominate the world.

The Jews were a traditional target for conspiracy theories and were not well placed to fight back. There were an easy target. Antisemitic attitudes had been rampant in Europe for centuries before WWII, and Germany was no exception.

Hitler was an extreme nationalist, meaning he thought his nation - Austria/Germany - was the best on the planet and by implication that all other nations were inferior. The opposite of being a Nazi/nationalist is to be a Communist.

Many, perhaps for a brief spell a fifth or so, of the original top Soviet Communist leadership was ethnically Jewish. (That soon changed under Stalin). All kinds of conspiracy theories flourished. (These conspiracy theories never mentioned the fact that in Russia the government itself was rabidly anti-Jewish from 1881-1917, so it was not at all surprising that quite a number of Jews joined the Bolsheviks). Hitler and many other Nazis felt a deep hatred for Jews. In fact, the major war effort in WWII by Germany was against Russia in an attempt to destroy Communism and the Jews, whom he believed supported and led them. He also believed that the Jews were the biological root of Communism.

Many, including Hitler, believed that Jews had played a major part in Germany's defeat in WWI. Jews were prominent in some sectors of the economy around the world such as banking/finance and some sections of the media.

If one looks closely at anti-Jewish claims and rhetoric, at the stereotypes, it becomes clear that the prejudices are fundamentally anti-modern. Not surprisingly, sections of society that felt squeezed by economic and social changes in the period from about 1910-33 - such as the landowning aristocracy, owners of small shops and workshops - contained some of the most rabidly anti-Jewish elements.

There was also a regional dimension to this. Hostility to Jews was strongest in Bavaria, where Jews had played a particularly prominent part in the revolutions of Novemeber 1918-May 1919. Hostility to Jews was particulary strong in the Danube region, especially in Bavaria, Austria, Hungary, Romania.

These various anti-Jewish forces and beliefs reached a quasi-religious zeal in parts of the Nazi movement and culminated in the Holocaust.

Why should we remember the Holocaust?

The should be commemorated at a church with a nice funeral with can remind the future what it would have been like to have lost your live especially in concentration camps, labour camps or death camps. Furthermore I also believe that all Jewish people should be commemorated due to the way they had been treated and the way they had suffered. The date for the holocaust Memorial Day was chosen due to the anniversary and the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp by the Soviet Union in 1945.

Why should you forget the Holocaust?

A few reasons to forget;

1. It was a very sad time, many people died.

2. Mankind should remember the good people that lived, not the people that killed and murdered people.

And a few more...

But there are MANY reasons why we should REMEMBER the Holocaust. Many more then to forget.

M.O

We should also forget because it is not good for us to dwell on the past and remember all of the terrible things that happened - if we did, we would be sat remembering forever there are that many bad things that happened. Some people also say that we should be looking to the future instead.

Why were the Jews singled out for extermination?

The explanation of the Nazis' implacable hatred of the Jew rests on their distorted world view which saw history as a racial struggle. They considered the Jews a race whose goal was world domination and who, therefore, were an obstruction to Aryan dominance. They believed that all of history was a fight between races which should culminate in the triumph of the superior Aryan race. Therefore, they considered it their duty to eliminate the Jews, whom they regarded as a threat. Moreover, in their eyes, the Jews' racial origin made them habitual criminals and born subversives who could never be rehabilitated and were, therefore, hopelessly corrupt and inferior.

____

The Jews had already been demonized. There is no doubt that other factors contributed toward Nazi hatred of the Jews and their distorted image of the Jewish people. These included the centuries-old tradition of Christian antisemitism which propagated a negative stereotype of the Jew as a Christ-killer, agent of the devil, and practitioner of witchcraft. Also significant was the political antisemitism of the latter half of the nineteenth and early part of the twentieth centuries, which singled out the Jews as a threat to the established order of society. These combined to point to the Jews as a target for persecution and ultimate destruction by the Nazis.

_____

These stereotypes were prevalent in many countries, so it is necessary to explain why they became potent and more intense in Germany in a way that was not the case elsewhere.

For this one must turn to the 'stab-in-the-back legend', which claimed that Germany had not been militarily defeated in World War 1 but brought down by (mainly Jewish) subversives on the home front. This went hand in hand with the belief the the Jews were Communists (and that Communism was somehow a specifically Jewish ideology).

The original plan was to expel the Jews from Germany. One needs to bear in mind that the decision to exterminate the Jews dates from 1941, and was probably triggered by the fact that the Nazis had made their self-inflicted 'Jewish problem' more difficult by invading Poland (which had a large Jewish population) and by then isolating them in such a way that most of them became of only marginal economic usefulness to the Nazi conquerors.

What rights did the Nazis take away from Jews in the Nuremberg laws?

The Nuremberg Laws were made into law in 1938 throughout Germany. I am not sure if Austria, which had recently joined Germany, was affected or not. Theses laws further restricted Jewish life considerably. No longer could Jews date or marry a non-Jewish German. Certain occupations were forbidden, like the legal system. If you were a doctor, you could only treat Jews. Jew were restricted in terms of traveling inside the country. They could not practice free speech or strike or hold political meetings in the open. Jewish business were heavily regulated. Many Jews believed that worst aspects of these laws would be tossed out over time. They were so mistaken!
