Are you two minutes silent on 4 may? It is very important to commemorate the war. By to be quiet, we hope that history does not repeat itself.
Hatred of Jews. Already in the middle ages and even in ancient times had there Jews persecutions. Anti-Semitism has its horrific peak during the reign of the National Socialists in Germany between the years 1934-1945. It is estimated that 6 million Jews from Germany and German-occupied areas to concentration camps and killed there. The motives that lead to antisemtisme, are many. In the Middle Ages it was often the hatred of the Christians against the people that Jesus was crucified. Economic considerations also played a role. The National Socialists saw the Jewish race inferior, reason why it had to be exterminated. In the 19th century it seemed that anti-Semitism would go away, because of the view, which is becoming more field won, that all people are equal. Russia, Central Europe and the Balkans, however, remained very anti-Semitic. Anti-Semitism in France flared up again during the infamous trial of the Jewish officer Dreyfus, who had been accused of treason (1894-1906). It turned out that the charge was false, only because he was a Jew. Despite the terrible suffering that the Jewish people had to endure during the second world war, is also currently the anti-Semitism has not disappeared.
