Imagine your icon helping you cram for an exam- getting really into it and making flashcards and timing you while you complete questions from old editions of the paper you’ll be taking- and then hugging you when it’s time for you to take it and wishing you good luck

My dog destroyed my glasses as revenge for not letting her bark out the window at dogs/birds/people/anything that goes by. At least I stopped her before she actually ate one of the lenses.

Can someone please explain why when I went to reblog something to add a comment it not only took away the text I was commenting on, my original comment on the post as well? Is it because I was reblogging it from the person who reblogged it from me?

Nevermind I figured it out.

okay, let’s not hijack the poor post any further because poor op will have to read out our discussion otherwise.

In response to diamondorloj’s post:

"nope. in 1933 the Hitler regime took over, and part of that was the oppression and persecution of Jews, but the actual Holocaust was perpetrated from 1941-1945, starting with the war against Russia because at that time, 20th June 2941, the Endlösung (final solution) was decided on and perpetrated. Granted, there are some historians that argue the Holocaust already started 1939 with the invasion of Poland because there were thousands of Jews killed, but the systematic extermination that is the Holocaust was planned and started in 1941, beginning 1942 also industrially perpetrated, and executed until 8th May 1945 

The Holocaust isn’t a synonym for the whole Nazi regime, thank you very much for your time.”

 That is a good point, however the Holocaust within Germany, as in the persecution of the Jewish people by the Nazi party, began in 1933 with the spread of propaganda and quickly escalated to legal restrictions perpetuated on Jews, ghettos, and finally concentration camps. Though the most severe extent did not, in fact, start until 1941, it can be argued that the Holocaust began in 1933 or the years immediately following, as that is when the persecution started.

That being said, the fact still remains that the Holocaust did not begin in the 20’s, which was my original point.

The Holocaust is not the persecution in total but the genocide, that means the intentioned extermination of whom they deemed Jews. While the discrimination against started way earlier than 1939 (in fact the Jews already were victims of anti-semitic on German ground since the 1870s by Otto von Bismarck), the genocide did not.

Now, genocide is defined by the intent to destroy/harm a group of ethnical, religious […] identity. That can happen by disintegrating their culture, assimilating their culture completely into a different one, or by mass killings of the people, which could also be perpetrated by leaving them in conditions that made survival impossible.The first NS ghettos were opened in 1939 with the beginning of the invasion of Poland, and that’s when the perpetration of the intent to destroy the Jewish people begun.
Again, the Holocaust is the term for the genocide on Jewish people; and while it was a big part of the Nazi agenda, it does not define the whole Nazi regime. I personally find the distinction very important, but it might seem like I’m making a mountain out of molehills. But yes, of course I concur your point that it did not begin in the 1920s.

I agree, poor OP. Also I figured out my reblogging problem.

I see your point, and the distinction is very important. The genocide, which is what the term Holocaust refers to, didn’t start until the 40’s, like you said. I agree on that point. My school taught it as an era beginning with Hitler’s rise and his persecution of the Jews. I think a lot of schools teach it that way for the sake of terminology. Thanks for clarifying the distinction.

get this to one million notes and ill dress as a flapper and flim myself reading every. single. response on this post that mentions the holocaust or racism

Anyone who brings up the holocaust as part of the 20’s needs to go the fuck back to school. The holocaust started in 1933.
