  1. World History IISOL Review Great Depression – Cold War

  2. Great Depression - Causes • German reparations • Buying on credit • Overproduction – high supply + low demand = low prices for farm goods and manufactured goods • Protective Tariffs – countries passed tariffs (taxes on imports) to make people buy goods produced and food grown in their country (foreign goods were more expensive) • Stock Market Crash (October 1929)

  3. Great Depression - Results • High unemployment • Bank failures + collapse of credit • Collapse of prices in world trade • Growth of Fascism (extreme nationalism) in Italy and Germany • Nazi Party blamed Jews for the economic collapse

  11. Outcomes of World War II • NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) – military alliance that included U.S., Canada, and western Europe • Warsaw Pact – Soviet Union and Eastern Europe

  12. Holocaust • Genocide – the systematic and purposeful destruction of a racial, political, religious, or cultural group • Elements leading to the Holocaust – history of anti-Semitism, defeat in World War I and Great Depression blamed on the Jews, Hitler’s belief in a master race, and Final Solution (death camps)

  16. Early Cold War • Yalta Conference - meeting of three main allied leaders (Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill) + planned "the whole shape and structure of post-war Europe“ + Stalin had the right to control the governments of Eastern Europe (Soviet troops were already stationed throughout Eastern Europe as they pushed toward Germany) • Democracy and Capitalism vs. Dictatorship and Communism • Truman Doctrine – contain communism (not let it spread)
