The Nazi-Soviet Pact or the Non Aggression Pact was signed by Stalin and Hitler on August 23, 1939, which agreed to not invade each other and instead invade eastern Europe and splitting the countries for each other. They invaded places like Poland.
This connects to my supporting question because when Hitler and Stalin agreed to sign this treaty between them and make them allies it ultimately lead to Germany and Russia's destruction. Even though everyone warned Stalin he shouldn't have done it he did.Which lead to his "allie" betraying ans almost conquering Russia. DId we learn from this? No since the cold war started right after WWII which we were allies with Russia but made them our enemy.
Belzec Concentration Camp
The Belzec Concentration Camps was built on November 1, 1941. This extermination camp consisted of a barrack, administration section, and area of stolen loot. There are three gas chambers in wooden cabins. Which then were changed from six gas chambers in a brick concrete building. There has been a estimated death of 500,000-600,000 people mainly consisted of Jews.
This connects to my supporting question because while in jail Hitler wrote a book called My Struggle which listed how the Jews were to blame for the lost of war in World War I. That was the first time he believed that the pure race the "Aryan Race" was superior to the others and started his imprisonment of the Jews. Which leads to millions of Jews to death. The world hasn't learned from this mistake other genocide happened. For example, Rwanda Massacre and the Cambodia Genocide
Nov. 1, 1941
Feb. 19, 1942
This relates to my supporting question because with the recent attack on Pearl Harbor it made it possible for the President to set an executive order into position and using his power and the peoples he made an order to take all Japanese decedents and take them into a camp and let them live there. We have learned from this and even given back some of ours and now nothing has happened that came even close to this.
Japanese Interment Camps
Due to the bombing on Pearl Harbor a Executive order made by President Roosevelt on February 19, 1942 to send all Japanese descendants to Internment Camps. In these camps they lived their normal lives like going to school, doing their jobs and taking care of each other. They camps were like barracks, but If they tried to leave they would be killed.

Dropping of the Atomic Bomb
On August 6, 1945, two atomic bombs were dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. They were created by two scientist Albert Einstein and Enrico Fermi created this bomb that uses nuclear reactions. The effects devastated the surrounding land of the two towns. People with a 1-mile radius automatically died from the burns. People who were close enough to the bomb and were far enough to not die had to suffer major burns and radiation in their bodies. Most people died and get cancer because of the radiation.
After the Japanese resisted to surrender the United States wanted to stop the war as quick as so they invented a atomic bomb which they used on the Japanese and ended the war. Ever since that no one has used the atomic bomb.
