in its entirety, the "final solution" called for the murder of all european jews by gassing, shooting, and other means. six million jewish men, women, and children were killed during the holocaust—two-thirds of the jews living in europe before world war ii
the answer is that a peace treaty was signed, but the settlers did not follow it.
the british government came to the conclusion that settlers and indians should remain separate. on october 7, 1763, the crown drafted the royal decree of 1763, through which he wanted to reorganize the north american territories
the officers drew a line of separation between the british colonies and the lands of the natives west of the appalachian mountains, creating an immense indian reservation that ranged from the appalachians to the mississippi river and from florida to newfoundland. by prohibiting settlers from entering indian lands, the british government hoped to avoid new events such as the pontiac rebellion.
the effects of the pontiac war were noted for a long time. because the decree recognized some indigenous rights over the lands they occupied, it became known as the indian bill of rights.
however, the royal decree of 1763 did not prevent the british from attempting to expand westward, so the indians were forced to form new resistance movements. the first began in 1767 after a meeting organized by the shawnee.
on this day in 1939, in response to hitler’s invasion of poland, britain and france, both allies of the overrun nation declare war on germany.
the first casualty of that declaration was not german—but the british ocean liner athenia, which was sunk by a german u-30 submarine that had assumed the liner was armed and belligerent. there were more than 1,100 passengers on board, 112 of whom lost their lives. of those, 28 were americans, but president roosevelt was unfazed by the tragedy, declaring that no one was to “thoughtlessly or falsely talk of america sending its armies to european fields.” the united states would remain neutral.
as for britain’s response, it was initially no more than the dropping of anti-nazi propaganda leaflets—13 tons of them—over germany. they would begin bombing german ships on september 4, suffering significant losses. they were also working under orders not to harm german civilians. the german military, of course, had no such restrictions. france would begin an offensive against germany’s western border two weeks later. their effort was weakened by a narrow 90-mile window leading to the german front, enclosed by the borders of luxembourg and belgium—both neutral countries. the germans mined the passage, stalling the french offensive.hope this : d
