Robert Kwant Hist.142 3/11/98 Term Paper Collaboration and Murder: Ukrainian Participation in the Holocaust The history of Ukrainian collaboration in the Holocaust is a logical progression that starts with native anti-Semitism and ends with Ukrainian participation in the murder of thousands of Jews. The Ukrainian population harbored its own unique type of anti-Semitism rooted in historic opposition to Polish nobility and Soviet rule before the out break of World War Two. For the Germans,

The United Nations There have been many organizations throughout recent history that have tried to attain international unity but have failed. Organizations such as: the European River Commissions of the early 1800's, the International Telegraph Union (1865) and the Universal Postal Union (1874), the Court of Arbritrations (1899), and the League of Nations (1914).

The B-29 had a l

Beginning after the end of World War II and proceeding until 1990, the Cold War has effected all countries in Eastern and Western Europe.

From signing the non-aggression pact to the Cuban Missile crisis, it is obvious that the US is just a bystande

WWII was one of the longest most deadly wars ever know to man. Most of the countries were either affected by it or directly involved with it. The United States did not directly join the war until December of 1941. In August of 1945 an event happened that would change the way we look and execute war tactics. The use of the atomic bomb was first introduced to war. Once Pearl Harbor was bombed the United States was ready to join a war that had been going on for an unbelievable amount of time. T
