    • A.

      Annihilation

    • B.

      Genocide

    • C.

      Holocaust

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Annihilation
    Explanation
    Annihilation means total destruction, making it the correct answer to the question. Genocide refers to the deliberate killing of a large group of people, while Holocaust specifically refers to the mass murder of Jews during World War II. Fascism is a political ideology characterized by dictatorial power and suppression of opposition, which is not directly related to total destruction. Therefore, annihilation is the most suitable word that means total destruction.

It involved the mass murder and annihilation of six million Jews, along with the persecution and extermination of other minority groups. The term "genocide" could also be related to the Holocaust, as it refers to the deliberate and systematic extermination of a particular ethnic, racial, or religious group.

It is characterized by a single ruling party or leader who suppresses opposition and exercises authority without any limitations or checks.

    • A.

      Holocaust

    • B.

      genocide

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    C. Pogrom
    Explanation
    A pogrom refers to government-organized attacks on Jewish neighborhoods. It specifically denotes violent acts of persecution, such as looting, destruction of property, and targeted violence against Jewish individuals. The Holocaust, on the other hand, refers to the systematic genocide of six million Jews by Nazi Germany during World War II. While the Holocaust involved government-organized persecution, it was not limited to attacks on Jewish neighborhoods alone. Genocide refers to the deliberate extermination of a particular ethnic, racial, or religious group. Totalitarianism, on the other hand, is a political system where the government has complete control over all aspects of public and private life.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What word means a system of government that is marked by stringent social and economic control, a strong centralized government usually headed by a dictator?

    • A.

      fascism

    • B.

      Totalitarianism

    • C.

      Pogrom

    • D.

      Genocide

    Correct Answer
    A. fascism
    Explanation
    Fascism is the correct answer because it refers to a system of government that is characterized by strict social and economic control, as well as a strong centralized government usually led by a dictator. Totalitarianism also involves a strong centralized government, but it does not necessarily have the same emphasis on social and economic control as fascism. Pogrom and genocide are not related to the concept of a system of government with stringent control and a centralized dictatorship.

It is a term used to describe the act of categorizing individuals based on preconceived notions or assumptions about their characteristics, behaviors, or abilities. Stereotypes can be harmful as they often perpetuate biases and discrimination against certain groups of people. Therefore, the word "stereotype" best fits the description of a generalization of a person who is regarded as a member of a group or nationality.

These laws deprived Jews of their citizenship and legal rights, and marked the beginning of the legal subjugation of the rights of Jews in Europe.

    Explanation
    Elie's new name at the camp is A-7713. This is likely a prisoner identification number given to him by the camp authorities. The use of identification numbers instead of names was a dehumanizing tactic used by the Nazis in concentration camps during the Holocaust. The number A-7713 would have been used to strip Elie of his individuality and reduce him to just a number in the eyes of the camp authorities.

    • A.

      Inheritance

      Gold keys

    • C.

      Gold teeth

    • D.

      feet

    Correct Answer
    C. Gold teeth
    Explanation
    During the Holocaust, the SS (Schutzstaffel) extracted gold teeth from Jews at the concentration camps. This was a common practice as the Nazis sought to exploit every possible resource, including valuable items like gold. The gold teeth were forcibly removed from the victims' mouths, often causing immense pain and suffering. The extracted gold was then melted down and used for various purposes, such as funding the war effort or enriching high-ranking Nazi officials. This brutal and dehumanizing act was just one of many atrocities committed by the SS during this dark period in history.

    • D.

      Extracting it himself

    Correct Answer
    A. Saying he is sick
    Explanation
    Elie prevents the SS from extracting the item by saying he is sick. This is an effective strategy because it creates a sense of urgency and sympathy towards his condition, making it less likely for the SS to question or challenge his excuse. By claiming to be sick, Elie is able to buy himself some time and avoid the extraction of the item.
