Warm up 4/7/14 Years for WWII - 2 alliance groups – US president during WWII -
summary of big ideas you need to understand after studying WWII Explain a difference between the Holocaust and Internment camps What started WWII? Did the US make the right decision to drop the Atomic Bomb? Why? What do the Code Talkers, Pearl Harbor and the Battle of Midway all have in common? What were the people in America doing during WWII?
Why study WWII? WWII started because of dictators wanting more power and territory. They tried to get complete control of their people and expand the power of their country. –Today this is happening in N. Korea, for example. To prevent WWII, some countries used appeasement -giving in to demands for land in exchange for peace -today the US has been accused of this in the Ukraine by doing very little when Russia took Kiev **You are the President, what would you do?
During WWII, Hitler and Stalin killed millions of people because of their political views, religion or ethnicity. –Today, (pick 2 of these as examples to write down) * Zimbabwe - President Robert Mugabe * Burma - Than Shwe *N. Korea – Kim Jong-un *China – Xi Jinping *Iran - Ali Khamenei *Eritrea - Isaias Afwerki *Saudi Arabia - Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz Should the world step in?? Yes or no – why? Why study WWII?
Why study WWII? Don’t need to write any of this! The Treaty of Versailles that ended WWI was harsh on Germany. The League of Nations had no power to enforce the rules to keep Germany under control. What did the world learn?? Today – The United Nations and the World Court work to resolve problems and gain support for military actions so that 1 country doesn’t dominate the others
To end the war with Japan quicker, Pres. Truman agreed to drop the atomic bomb. When Japan did not immediately surrender, the US dropped a second one. Today – the US worries about who has weapons of mass destruction. The United Nations tries to control access to the technology and the materials to make WMDs. Is it right for the US and the UN to make that decision? Why study WWII?

warm up 4/10/14 Why is the Treaty of Versailles considered a cause of WWII? 1. It was forced Germany to accept all blame for WWI. 2. One WWI winner, Japan, did not receive any new land after WWI. The Japanese government was angry about that. 3. Germany was ordered to pay $300 billion in reparations. 4. League of Nations was created to maintain peace but since the US did not join, it was weak and could not enforce any of the rules.
