Throughout history innocent people were persecuted because of religion, race, gender, or beliefs. It has been proved that between the first persecution under Nero in 64 to the Edict of Milan in 313, Christians experienced 129 years of persecution. Since the fifth century, there have been ten major persecutions and that is not counting the minor ones. The Holocaust started in the late 1938s and ended in 1945 during World War II and was one of the major persecutions. The events of The Crucible and the Holocaust both occurred because of the strong mindset of awful leaders (Persecution in the Early Church). Hitler focused his hatred on Jews, Marxists, Poles, Czechs, and the French and intellectuals. His hatred caused his desire to kill those innocent people. In The Crucible, innocent citizens were persecuted because people accused them of “witch-acts”. Just because some children accused people of witchery so they wouldn’t get in trouble innocent people lost their life. Just like during the Holocaust, just because people were born the way they were, they were persecuted for that. During the Holocaust, Hitler wouldn’t allow people to see him in any way that would demean his dignity (What are the Characteristics of Hitler?). He also did not like to be corrected in any way. Like in the Holocaust, the citizens of Salem that were being accused of witchery would claim they did see the devil but they want god to forgive them and repent of their sins. In The Crucible, Tituba claims that she did see the devil but she loves god and is a Christian woman (Miller, Arthur, pg 43-47). Hitler instructed the Nazi soldiers to torture or kill many Jewish people just because he did not like them. Throughout history there has been many times that people get persecuted because of the way they look. Abigail Williams, from The Crucible, convinced the town of Salem that people within the town were practicing witchcraft so many innocent people got persecuted because they believed a child.
differentiate between proper sexual behavior and improper sexual behaviour. Since the sexual act is connected with the giving birth to children (human reproduction),it despite being a very private and intimate matter. People normally born with only one sex either male or female. There are people who unsatisfied with their own sex which most probably happen in man,they undergo gender reassignment therapy to make themselves a real woman. In 20th century, issue regarding sex exchange is still a rare and unprecedented….
studying Author Millers play, The Crucible, I have come to the conclusion that the three people most to blame for the witch hysteria and the subsequent death of innocent people are Abigail, Danforth, and Reverend Paris each of these people, in some way cause harm to blameless people, and I will in this essay, explain what these people, knowingly and unknowingly did not contribute to the death of the innocent people hanged as witches in Salem Village in 1962.
Abigail was most responsible for the Salem….
Why do innocent people suffer? It is a question that all human being have asked either once in their life time or at multiple times. Innocent people suffer while the sinners succeed. We mention this question when it seems that innocent people suffer from a death or when they lose all that they have worked for. While people that do not seem to care with what happens, get what they do not deserve.

AS History – Essay on the Persecution of the Jews
How accurate is it to say that the persecution of Jews in Germany steadily increased in the years 1933-42?
The question of whether or not the persecution of Jewish race has had a steady intensification, relates closely to whether you adopt an intentionalist or structuralist viewpoint on this historical event. An intentionalist will claim that the process of persecuting Jews in Germany is a planned sequence and was outlined by the Nazi Party; they….
A Misleading Label
A first look at the title of Graham Greene’s story “The Innocent”, may give people a sense of purity and a feeling of bliss. Even those who have read the story can see the association between innocence and childhood, which is exactly what the author intended. Any reader can plainly look at the surface of what is happening in this story and see the narrator as an average man who is revisiting the town he grew up in, while having flashbacks of childhood memories….

Dr. Nhia Vang Vang, the pastor of the First Hmong Alliance Church in Longview, NC, mentioned that Christianity has….

Many people think that in this world a person could worship any god they wanted to worship and not get judged for it, because it's the 21st century and this world has had many advances since the time were a person was told which religion they had to worship.

One of the worst acts of religious persecution in modern day history is the Holocaust, and….
As the story continues on/ the word “persecution” had lead to many false accusations and deaths by pride. Giles Corey a former farmer had found out what Thomas Putnam was doing to gain land. Giles went to Danforth to accuse Thomas but when given a name he had refused. This lead to him being pressed to death by yet refusing to give out the name. John Proctor had signed himself a confession to save his life but however had thought that it had been wrong and refused to give out this letter so he teared….
