Question:

(a) If you were a student sitting in one of these classes, how would you have felt towards Jews?

(b) Have you ever thought of the stereotypes of other communities that people around you believe in? How have they acquired them?

Answer:

(a) If I were a student sitting in one of these classes, I would have felt terrible about the harsh treatment given to them. I would have criticized this behaviour of Nazis and raised my voice against it. I would have also tried to help and also would have tried to solve this problem.

(b) I have thought of the stereotypes of other communities. They are usually acquired from other ancestors and the traditions and customs of the community to which they belong.
