A living corpse Do you think the holocaust could happen again? Do you think if people aren 't aware of history that it can repeat self? If people aren 't aware of what happened in the holocaust and how horrific it was, then people wouldn 't know what to do if it happened again and people wouldn 't know how to prevent it from happening again.This memoir points out the worst parts of a personal experience of Elie Wiesel, a holocaust survivor. The Holocaust was a horrific, terrifying experience for people of the jewish religion where over 5 million innocent people were killed. Elie Wiesel lived through tough times and watched his family get separated from him.
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.
Elie Wiesel’s memoir Night explains how the holocaust has changed his life. This essay is about how Elie Wiesel has changed over time because of the concentration camps like Auschwitz and Buchenwald. The memoir Night is about Elie Wiesel and everyone around him with their experience at Auschwitz. It talks about how they had to deal with the Nazi’s and how they had to put up with so much death. It explains how he turned from being pouis about life to wanting to not exist.
Many lives were lost during the German’s attempt to wipe out all Jews, and those who lived lost a part of their life during this time. The young boys lost their childhood and ‘innocences’. They witness more death and suffering than anywhere in the country. Today, there is still death and violence against others. There is pledges from other countries to want to kill Americans and Christians.
Some things in life are difficult to understand without experience. The special bond between a father and son or the adrenaline felt running from elderly neighbors post broken window, and on a completely different level, the Holocaust. A whole religion placed on the chopping block as the scapegoat for a crippling country’s mistakes. WWI left Germany in an embarrassing situation after, debatably, being the root cause of the war. Respect and the high self esteem Germans held plummeted to an all time low.
In the past, innocent people got persecuted by the hands of other individuals because of hatred. These terrible actions started because of the pure hatred, lack of knowledge, and people didn’t fight back. Since, this happened people have lost their lives for example 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and shooting that is going on. “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate”. Nazi ideology started Propaganda causing discrimination and hate which justified genocide, which led 6.3 millions Jews killed.
Losing the Faith? During difficult times, many people turn to their faith in order to help themselves deal with the situation that they are going through. However, difficult times may cause people to stray away from their faith or forget about their beliefs all together. In his novel, Night, Elie Wiesel describes in detail his time spent in a concentration camp. As a result of living in a concentration camp and the horrible experiences he lived through, it is evident that Wiesel begins to lose the faith that was once so important to him.
The Holocaust was a horrible happening that caused many innocent Jewish people to be forced out of their homes with nothing but a sack of their belongings. They were separated from their families, stripped of their rights and their names, and some even watched their loved ones die. When i think about the U.S. and how we responded to these poor people, when all they needed was a place to stay i can’t believe the decisions we made. As an adolescent many things can be gathered from how the world reacted during the holocaust such as, the bystander effect were we the bystanders in this situation? Also I can learn to not wait till the last moment to do something, or to not wait till something happens to make a move or to fight back.
The Jewish population was cut down so much. Two out of every three Jews were killed. Hundreds of thousands of Jews established their homes somewhere else. Many left Europe and went to numerous amounts of places. Yehuda Bauer, a survivor of the Holocaust said, “Thou shalt not be a victim, thou shalt not be a perpetrator, but, above all, thou shalt not be a bystander.” There were many Holocaust views from the Jews especially about their God.
When a select group of people are treated as less than human, there are consequences for everyone: the victims, the victimizers and the bystanders. The book Night by Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor, contains many examples of people 's Universal Human Rights being violated in the depths of concentration camps. Those examples show how victims of this are dehumanized little by little every time those rights are violated. Almost all 30 rights were violated throughout the book, but a few were violated on a more frequent basis and they did the most harm. The more frequent rights violated from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights were articles five, six and seventeen, and this essay will explain how these human rights dehumanized inhabitants
