Answer:    Separation of Allied forces and preventing their supply

Explanation:  Battle of Bulge (December 16, 1944-January 16, 1945) was the last major offensive of the Nazi forces in the Second World War. The goal of the Nazis was to separate the allied forces, thus weakening them, unable their possibility to supply themselves, and expelling them further. This was at the same time a great defeat of the Germans, which proved to be the beginning of the end of the Second World War.

Why Does Oskar Schindler come to Poland? Does that make him any better than the conquering Germans?

Following the German invasion and occupation of Poland, Schindler moved to Krakow from Svitavy. Taking advantage of the German occupation program to “Aryanize” and “Germanize” Jewish-owned and Polish-owned businesses in the so-called General Government (Generalgouvernement), he bought Rekord Ltd., a Jewish-owned enamelware manufacturer and converted its plant to establish the Deutsche Emalwarenfabrik Oskar Schindler (German Enamelware Factory Oskar Schindler), also known as Emalia, in November 1939. While Schindler operated two other factories in Krakow, only at Emalia did he employ Jewish workers who resided in the nearby Krakow ghetto. At its peak strength in 1944, Emalia employed 1,700 workers; at least 1,000 were Jewish forced laborers, whom the Germans had relocated from the Krakow ghetto after its liquidation in March 1943 to the forced labor camp and later concentration camp Krakau-Plaszow.

The correct answer is D. Japanese-Americans were sent to internment camps because they were commonly referred to as "alien enemies" by many Americans, who feared Japanese spies and attacks from Japanese-Americans, and that Japanese-Americans were loyal to Japan.


The internment camps for Japanese in the United States accommodated some 120,000 people, who were deported under pressure from the federal government, in establishments designed for that purpose in the interior of the country, during 1942 and 1948.

The objective was to move them from their habitual residence, mostly on the West Coast, to facilities built under extreme security measures. The fields were closed with barbed wire fences, guarded by armed guards, and located in places far from any population center. Attempts to leave the camp sometimes resulted in the dejection of the inmates.
