Human Rights Essay, Research Paper
Throughout history, people?s human rights have been violated, but efforts have also been made to address the violations, and protect their rights. Human rights are rights as regarded as belonging fundamentally to all persons. Today, everyone is entitled to the same rights. We are all equal, in a sense. We are all protected by basically the same rights in America. Things were different throughout history however. For example, the Jews in Nazi Germany were treated horribly. As were women throughout practically all of history. Actions were taken to obliterate the violatons placed on these groups of people, Jews, and women. They did however, still have to suffer.
During the Holocaust, Jews were opressed by Hitler and the Nazis. The Holocaust was a mass slaughter of the Jews and other civilians carried out by the Nazi government of Germany before and during World War II. Jews were denied all rights. Hitler led the people of Germany into believe the Jews were the reason for their economic decline. They were denied practically every human right and sent to concentration camps where they were murdered and forced into labor. The Holocaust occurred during and before World War II. Specifically between the years of 1939-1945. The effort made o try and stop the Holocaust was World War II. It was successful.
Women also suffered from a denial of human rights. They were treated as property of their husbands and father. For awhile they were even denied educational rights. They were denied the right to vote, to be employed, to own land, to basically be their own person. A suffrage was acted out in order to gain women their right to vote, which essentially expanded into other rights in the future resulting in the equality we have today. The Women?s Rights Movement occurred between 1815-1914.
Human Right?s are something we?ve fought for. We?ve been fighting for human rights all throughout history and we continue to. Today women are equal with men because their rights were fought for throughout history. Jews as well have equal rights. Human Rights are what we?ve been fighting for.
