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.
“A traumatic experience robs you of your identity” (Dr.Bill). Concentration camps during the agonizing Holocaust disallowed their prisoners to obtain a personal identity. The renowned memoir, Night, written by Holocaust survivor, Eliezer Wiesel, published in 1954 expands the apprehension of the life altering challenges and torment the Jewish society encountered from 1933 to 1945. Identity consists of an individual's distinctive characteristics, beliefs and mannerisms which was forbidden for the Jewish hostages of the Holocaust to attain. Elie’s identity was shaped and reshaped by the traumatic experiences the Jewish community persevered through.
Literary Techniques and Overall Meaning Poetry is a very important and respected type of literature, and one that covers a vast range of topics. Some of the most impressive and response-invoking poems are those that cover more sensitive topics, such as discrimination and racism. Discrimination is a topic not overwhelmingly seen in poetry, but often very interesting to read. Author Sekou Sundiata creates a prime example of this in “Blink Your Eyes.”
Night by Elie Wiesel was a novel with great horror and suffering during the Holocaust. “Three days later, a new decree:every Jew had to wear the yellow star”(Wiesel 11).This quote marks the beginning of the religious segregation for Eliezer and his family. At this time the Jews had to wear stars, but as the novel progressed it got worse. It started as clothing then went to ghettos. Ghettos were enclosed districts where Jews lived separately from the world.
False Universality Night is a autobiography about a 15 year old, fictional version of the author, Elie Wiesel, enduring the Holocaust and surviving. The story illustrates how the Holocaust stripped humanity and innocence from Wiesel. The rights violated in the book Night includes freedom from discrimination(Article 2), exemption from torture and degrading treatment(Article 5), and right to rest and leisure(Article 24).
Lastly, Spiritual death. Spiritual death is a large part of this story, mostly because it shows the complete loss of faith. An example of this is “Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes.” (Wiesel 34). This is the night of his first time at camp.
The refugees in this case were the Jews. In the title “Refugee Blues”, “blues” is mentioned. Blues was a sad slow music which consisted of three line stanza and a lot of repetition for example “old passports can 't do that my dear old passports can 't do that.” The effect and purpose of these repetitions is for the poet to force the reader to linger on any points he feels are important, hence making a longer lasting impact on the reader.
And it was Darwish 's creative work and precise language that transcended his experience not only as a Palestinian writer, but also as a writer who aroused the universal, while managing the aesthetic transmission of the oppressive side of the human condition under occupation. In his prosaic memoir, Memory for Forgetfulness, Darwish writes in hauntingly surrealist manner: "He 's looking for a pair of eyes, for a shared silence or reciprocal talk. He 's looking for some kind of participation in this death, for a witness who can give evidence, for a gravestone over a corpse, for the bearer of news about the fall of a horse, for a language of speech and silence, and for less boring wait for certain death. For what this steel and these iron beasts are
The Nazis set up internment camps and concentration camps all over Europe and killed over 6 million people. Being dismantled by the efforts of the Allied Forces, the German Third Reich fell. Built shortly after this was the Berlin Wall, separating Berlin into 2 separate parts, East and West Berlin. Communism was the primary governmental system in East Berlin until its fall in 1990 (Sheehan, 2018). Modern Germany, understandably, is not proud of that part of its past, but still acknowledges the mistakes mad by
“Night” is a memoir about the Holocaust, and it was created by Elie Wiesel, a survivor. It shows the horrors Elie went through when he was just a teenager and how he pulled through and made it to the end without ease. He had to go through many dilemmas. An issue he had to deal with is his father dying. After “The March”, Elie’s father can barely even look alive and Elie has to take care of him.
“For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.” - Elie Wiesel. Wiesel was a Jew, Holocaust survivor, professor, and writer. As soon as Elie stepped out of the concentration camps after being liberated, he could not find the words to portray what he had just witnessed. Speechless, Elie took the next few years to recollect his thoughts and opinions, and find the right words to describe the horrors beyond the walls of the many concentration camps he was put through.
He was put into labor camps at a young age and was torn from his family. Like any other jew he was trapped in a ghetto, transported to a camp, and evaluated in the selection. He has gone through every painful event in the holocaust and the most painful event was knowing how his father died and that his father death brought him joy not sorrow. The Holocaust is an important because it shapes who he is. Wiesel wouldn 't have become a fighter for peace if he wouldn 't have experienced all the terrible thing his own kind did to him, the beatings, the hunger and the pain.
Introducing the middle section of Salter’s paper, is when Salter uses techniques to seek more emotion out of the reader by introducing a dramatic tone. For instance, he mentions reading an essay, and says he couldn’t continue to read the essay due to how much it touched him. He says, “From somewhere beneath, the Dionysian had poured forth.” From this statement, it is clear that he is letting the reader know that what he read had that much of an impact on his mind-set. Salter proves his argument by giving his example of working in the movie industry.
