Museum of tolerance
On my visit to the museum of tolerance I learned about Jack Roosevelt Robinson also called Jackie the first African American to play in major league baseball. Jackie ended segregation on April 15, 1947 when he started playing for the Brooklyn dodgers as first baseman. Robinson has played in six World Series including the Dodger’s 1955 world championship as well as selected
for six repeating all-star games. Robinson has won many awards some to mention are MLB rookie of the year in 1947 and the first black player to be national league most valuable player in 1949. Robinson was a very inspiring man that now he is celebrated on “Jackie Robinson day” which is when all the players wear his number 42. At UCLA Johnson was the first athlete to win varsity letters in four sports baseball, basketball, football and track.
Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-born German, leader of the Nazi party and the one responsible for the holocaust. After being a veteran of world war one he joined the national socialist German works party and was elected leader in 1921. The holocaust started when Hitler would state that the Jews were enemies of the Germans and in order to expand Germany the lebensraum was needed. Hitler’s goal was exterminate the Jews and one way for that to be accomplished was to built concentration camps all over Europe. In those concentration camps the Jews were only given a small portion of food and put to work till they died. Many starved to death, some died from diseases, others were put into gas chambers were a group was sent to supposedly take a shower but It released gas instead of water. The Jews were surrounded by fences where they could not escape and they had to wear striped clothes with shaved heads in order for them to be distinguished. The Jews were tattooed a number in order to distinguish them apart.
