Introduction

    They decided to build ghettos. These camps had big iron gates that were guarded 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Jew's starved and were only fed two slices of stale bread a day, if they were lucky.

  2. Racism, do you think it's right?

    There are many fights and arguments that happen which involve racism. A survey from 1997, in England, shows that 37% of all fights, which were handled by the police, were race related and I find this statistic astonishing. People should not be fighting because of their skin colour or beliefs
