Page 29

1. Today, would it be possible for a dictator like Hitler come to power and cause another world war?

2. Explain briefly what would have happened if an assassination attempt on Hitler had been successful. What effect would this have had on today?

3. Hitler’s actions of genocide to preserve the “supreme race” were inhumane and racist. What early actions could have been taken by the Allies to stop Hitler’s actions against the Jewish population?

4. Hitler gained the support of the German people through propaganda and by exploiting their poor economic conditions. What implications does this have for world leaders today? Consider the use of the media by the government and the government’s recent reactions to the economic decline.

5. What punishment, if any, should be given to those leaders that currently practice genocide, particularly in the former Yugoslavia?
