Answers to Mr.Neub's questions.


1.Zionism was a Jewish movement that arose in the late 19th century in response to growing anti-Semitism and sought to reestablish a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Modern Zionism is concerned with the support and development of the state of Israel.
2. An anti-semite is someone who hates Jewish people.
3.In our opinion foreign Jews were deported first because they were seen as a bigger threat than native Jews. Because the foreign Jews were fleeing from surrounding countries and had already seen what was about to come. They had already witnessed the inhumane cruelty that the Nazi Germans could inflict.
4. The Gestapo were in charge of rounding up the Jews and putting them in cattle cars to be deported to camps. They were also in charge of making the Jews miserable and stripping them of their rights and their belongings. They enforced Nazi rules and policies.

7.A Hassidic Jew is a member of a Jewish mystic movement founded in the 18th century in eastern Europe by Baal Shem Tov that reacted against Talmudic learning and maintained that God's presence was in all of one's surroundings and that one should serve God in one's every deed and word.

I agree with your answers. You wrote alot to each question and in some you got into detail so good job. There were a few questions where you didnt write much but you still explained the answers well.

I agree with all of your answers. Most of them you went into detail with your answers but on some of them you did not write that much. My group did not go into detail with all of them either. We thought if we explained two or three of them really well it would not of mattered that we did not answer all of them.
