Q:

The interstate commerce act of 1887 required

Answer

The Interstate Commerce Act of 1887 is a United States federal law that was designed to regulate the railroad industry, particularly its monopolistic practices.


 


The reason that the Interstate Commerce Act required that rates be published was to avoid secret rebates and similar deals. Until then, big shippers would demand rebates from railroads, which would in effect reduce their shipping costs without letting competitors know. This is anti-competitive.


Hence, the Act required that railroad rates be "reasonable and just," but did not empower the government to fix specific rates.

Q:

Where did the holocaust take place?

Answer

The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah,[b] was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered approximately 6 million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945.


The Holocaust originated in Nazi Germany in the late 1930s and eventually spread throughout Central and Eastern Europe into countries invaded and occupied by Germany during World War II.
