Anti-Semitism

untitledAnti-Semitism is the false belief that humans are divided into separate and distinct “races” and that people born as Jews, regardless of their religious beliefs, were evil and dangerous. The Nazis believed that the Jews were secretly working together to gain control of the world and that is how anti-Semitism became a government policy during the German’s rise of power during the second world war. The Nazis truly believed that they were born superior to the Jews and that Jewish people only destroyed societies. I can’t imagine what it would have been like to live during this horrible time period. Racism definitely exists today in the Western World, but there isn’t a real and true danger involved in being a Jew today like there was then. The only real case of anti-Semitism existing today is what is happening in the Middle East. I guess we are pretty lucky to live in Australia where all cultures are mostly accepted.
