The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses. This book is very important because it teaches the reader things they didn’t know well or proves to them that they are wrong if they believed that the Holocaust was not harmful. No one had the right to treat these people in that way and no one has the right to ban this book because this will be censorship. Night also shows the truth about the Holocaust and teaches us that this period in history should be prevented from happening
This reveals the bias of the manhunt as the German conspirator had never meant to do any harm to anyone and willingly revealed the conspiracy information. He had not supported the Confederate cause as strongly as the other conspirators and therefore did not feel a strong repugnance toward the Union that murder seemed immoral. Atzerodt was threatened with accusations to carry out the terrible deed, but he made no attempt at all to murder Johnson due to his cowardice. Therefore, it appears to be unjust that he was condemned with the felony of attempted assassination, which he had never committed or ever wanted to effectuate. In addition, Atzerodt’s role in the conspiracy was extremely insignificant compared to that of Mudd’s and other associates in Booth’s underground tunnel escape route.
He uses it to intimidate the citizens of Fahrenheit 451, as well as a means of garbage disposal. Some examples from the book are, “Its real beauty is that is destroys responsibility and consequences. A problem gets too burdensome, then into the furnace with it… clean, quick, sure; nothing to rot later.” That quote is from and can be found on page 109 of Fahrenheit 451. Also another example of this is, “The important thing for you to remember, Montag, is we’re the Happiness Boys… you and I and the others. We stand against the small tide of those who want to make everyone unhappy with conflicting theory and thought.
Testimony of Bernard Mayer (on Liquidation of the Ghetto, Poland, 1943), confirms these events of the liquidation, by beginning of the simplicity of it all. The removal of personal items came as a shock, however it slowly began to escalate. From just seizing items, they began to rip clothing, ravage through beds, only leaving pots and dishes for the families. Overall, Schindler’s List portrays the Holocaust accurately with mishaps only because of the focus on one subject. It did not misconstrue or deliver incorrect information to the audience, seeing it’s fit as one of the most historically significant films in the twentieth
Therefore, the lack of resistance imposed by German citizens and soldiers makes them accountable for the Holocaust. In conclusion, the responsibility of the Holocaust should be held under German people rather than the Nazis. The direct motivational traits that the German soldiers showed when herding Jews, the superior impression of German citizens that jeopardized the lives of Jews, and the unnecessary degrees of loyalty that the Germans heaved shows the deserving guilt of the Germans for the
In essence, in her work Arendt, specifically referring to the case of one of the main Holocaust organizers Otto Adolf Eichmann, writes that people who are directly involved in carrying out terrible crimes are not necessarily fanatics, but could be mere average people who bureaucratize even the most unspeakable atrocities under the premise that it is their duties to obey the orders of the state or any other likewise authority. Those people may actually not feel any specific negative emotions towards people who affected by their actions at all. The main drivers of their motivation to work is belief in their duties, job etc. The implications of the work however cruel it may be are thus disregarded. Arendt uses the term “banality of evil” to describe her this
It was important to note that if he was not truly regret about his fault, he would not find someone who might hate him so much according to his identity as a Nazi soldier to confess his sin when he was dying. If he did not feel sorry about what he did, found someone to confess his sin was absolutely unnecessary. According to The sunflower, there were some specific examples to show Karl’s repentance. For example, he said “I cannot die ... Without coming clean” (Wiesenthal 53).
Even though he had some injuries he still did not want to press charges, which revealed Gandhi really did not like violence and he would do anything to display to the people that you can solve differences without violence. Gandhi connects to the Holocaust because he had a positive impact on India and the Holocaust left a negative impact on the Jews, so they both left tremendous impacts. Also, they are similar because Gandhi felt what he was doing was right, so did Hitler. Another example is after Gandhi was arrested for no reason he did not think all police were mean , just as the Jews did not think all Germans were mean. Gandhi also caused riots just as Hitler caused riots.
However, some brave individuals called upstanders chose to stand up to the Nazi regime by rescuing Jews and other victims of persecution. Numerous bystanders claimed to have no other options when faced with a moral dilemma, and in doing so, they gave the perpetrators permission to hurt others. Bystanders enable perpetrators to commit atrocities; therefore, they are just as guilty of the crimes that the Nazis committed during the Holocaust. Bystanders do not know how to stop following the perpetrators’
Since Hitler used propaganda to influence many people, this further supports the books theme of words being more powerful than anything. Liesel had written in her book "I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right" (528). This quote shows how Liesel hated the words of Hitler but she also loves reading and writing and hopes that her words make a better impact than
