Eli Wiesel, the author of Night, demonstrates dehumanization by illustrating how the Nazis tortured the Jews. The foreign Jews of Sighet were being deported out of their homes. Moshe the Beatle tells Elie of his time in Galicia with great emotion. Elie shares what the Nazis did to the Jews, “Without passion or haste, they shot their prisoners, who were forced to approach the trench one by one and offer their necks. Infants were tossed into the air and used as targets for machine guns” (Wiesel 6).
This means that a leader must have no mercy and punish hard to keep their people in line. This philosophy applies quite a lot to Hitler, for example, Kristallnacht (the night of broken glass). On the night of November 9, 1938, violence and hatred against Jews broke out across the German Reich and thousands of Jews were captured and killed. The morning after the massacres, 30,000 German Jewish men were arrested for the "crime" of being Jewish and sent to concentration camps, which was a harsh punishment. De Nacht der langen Messer (The night of the long knives) is another example and was a purge that took place in Germany in which Nazi soldiers carried out numerous political homicides on 77 leading figures of the left-wing Strasserist faction of the Nazi Party.
The Nazis will treat the Jews as if they were not real people this is an example of man inhumanity to man. The memoir Night by Elie Wiesel had many themes some were struggle to maintain faith, Nazi cruelty and man's inhumanity to man. The Holocaust has a big role in history and so many Jews had lost their life because one man hate them so much that he had to punish the Jews and made the Nazi army did many inhumane things to
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
The Holocaust had Adolf Hitler attempting to wipe out every single Jew on the face of the Earth. As a matter of fact, he also targeted the Polish people, and homosexuals. People of these races plus more, were sent to horrific concentration camps and brutally worked until they were incapable of doing so. This all happened because Hitler was intolerant toward the Jews, Polish, and homosexuals. Another example of intolerance is back in the 1960s with the Ku Klux Klan.
Both the Cambodians in the Cambodian Genocide and the Jews in the novel Night were treated similarly because both victims were displaced out of their homes, overworked, mistreated, and starved. Moreover, officers of the genocides starved the victims of the Holocaust and the
Inhumanity and Cruelty in Night Adolf Hitler, the Nazi dictator of Germany, conducted a genocide known as the Holocaust during World War II that was intended to exterminate the Jewish population. The Holocaust was responsible for the death of about 6 million Jews. Night is a nonfiction novel written by Eliezer Wiesel about his experience during the Holocaust. Many events in the novel convey a theme of “man’s inhumanity to man”. The prisoners of the concentration camps are constantly tortured and neglected by the German officers who run the camps.
The badge implemented of deporting Jews to ghettos and killing centers. When the Nazi’s saw someone with a Jewish badge, they watched their every move. Wearing the badge humiliated the Jews, and made them feel uncomfortable.
The holocaust took place during WWII. At this time the chancellor of Germany know as Adolf Hitler had ordered a crusade against the jewish race. In this time period over 6 million jewish people including men women and children. Families were stripped from their homes with nearly all of their possessions removed from them. After first entering the gates they weren't even allowed the cloths off their backs.
The Holocaust was a genocide in Germany of all European Jews and ‘undesirables’, led by Adolf Hitler; he managed to kill 6 million jews using concentration camps and systematic killing. In the concentration camps, the Jews were forced to do labour work in factories to manufacture goods for the war; conditions were terrible, as Jewish individuals were not treated well physically and psychologically. Previous knowledge and impressions of mine, regarding the Holocaust, came from classroom discussions, reading textbooks, and by doing assignments. Therefore, the film depicted how truly horrific the Holocaust was, as it ruined the lives of innocent individuals, due to a factor of their lives which they could not control; can not decide to be Jewish,
As Sukarno once said, “The worst cruelty that can be inflicted on a human being is isolation.” In Night by Elie Wiesel, Anna Karenina, and The Old Guitarist by Pablo Picasso, the protagonists all struggle with isolation. Elie, Anna, and the old man are isolated from society because they are different than everybody else and unworthy of being included, which results in depression, death, and misery. Elie Wiesel, a Jew removed from his home and relocated to Auschwitz, is an outcast and is isolated from the rest of society because he is considered different. When Elie first arrives to the death camp, he describes his surroundings as “empty and dead” (Wiesel 47).
During the time when Elie was in the concentration camp many things change. His relationship was the thing that changed the most. It changed by Elie now taking care of his dad instead of the other way around. Also the death of Elie's father affected Elie in a negative way.
SECTION 1 (book pgs. 3-65) • Chapter Titles • Ch 1: The Ghetto, I chose this title because most the story takes place in the ghetto. This section shows mostly how they lived there. • Ch. 2: Train Ride, This section was mostly about the train ride and all of the events that occurred there. It showed how it was like to be in there with little space and how they long it took to get to Auschwitz.
“Human rights are being violated on every continent. More people are oppressed than free… One person of integrity can make a difference, a difference of life and death,” said Elie Wiesel about the world in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. He was so passionate about these things--But why? The answer lies in this: he was a Holocaust survivor, in fact one of the most prominent.
