The Holocaust; probably one of the most brutal and horrifying genocides in the history of politics. It was the dark secret of Germany during World War II, As a result, the defeat of the Nazi’s sparked a huge newcomming, and with it, the formation of the United Nations. But that is not the main concern here. The events and documents that we have found about the Holocaust still horrify us today. Documentations such as the book Night by Elie Wiesel and the story of the White Rose show us how brutaly a person can treat one another, and the exents powerful people can go to in order to hold their power.
Neither of these authors has any experience of oppressive regimes but both feel morally outraged by the Stasi and Stalin’s rule. Orwell is inspired by Stalin using the USSR. Post war Germany had the Stasi to make sure it remains a communist country and not get influenced by capitalism. The third person limited narrative favouring the point of view of Winston the protagonist. On the other hand, Funder who has a first-person narrative, but Funder’s text is polyvocal because she uses a lot of direct speech from her interviewees and she has narrative commentary which influences the perspective
He’s noticing the evils of Hitler. He shows this towards the ending of the book: “In my mind, this makes Adolf Hitler as evil as any man who kills his own children. This gross misuse of our loyalty to our country and love for our Fuehrer is, to me, just as much as a criminal act as the murder of 6 million Jews” (Ayer 224-225). Heck is now one of the non-supporters on Hitler and has a strong hatred towards him. He knows that Hitler purposely brainwashed innocent children who have a great love for their country.
Elie Wiesel’s somber speech, “The Perils of Indifference”, demonstrated the harsh reality of the numerous evils harvesting in the world. The main evil though was simply indifference, or a lack of concern. As a young Jewish boy, he faced the wickedness of the Holocaust, imprisoned at Buchenwald and Auschwitz and also losing both his parents and younger sister. The speaker saw atrocious horrors and suffered for a prolonged amount of time. Why was this permitted?
This shows how the Nazis treated Elie and the other Jews with hunger and how they did not get any food. 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
Fear Mongering and hatred often go hand in hand. When a group of people begin blindly fearing a group of people, they will quickly lead to an unjustified hatred of said group. One of the main examples of this came from the Holocaust. Much like the Holocaust, the Crucible featured people blindly hating people because of pointless fears, Also, they both feature an extremely biased government system in which the victim is not as well represented as they should be. During the times of the holocaust, some groups of people blamed the jews for the economic downfall of Germany, so they rose against them and began fighting against them, fueled by a leader who hated them more than anyone else.
Elie Wiesel’s true story Night, is an intriguing story about the Holocaust. The guards and even veteran prisoners are cruel to others. The punishments, even for tiny faults, are unthinkably horrid. Man does not care how old or weak someone is; this makes the children and teens change and act inhumane towards other prisoners, even towards their own family. It clearly, and painfully, explains man’s inhumanity to man.
Many actions played out during the Holocaust and World War II were not humane, and still remind us like a scream behind closed doors: hidden but still heard. While hearing the horrid stories and seeing the ghoulish photos of times not to be forgotten, we see the tragedy that is the mistreatment of human lives. Our identities are lost little by little, but those victims had theirs ripped from their bodies. After losing everything and then becoming a nearly empty vessel, it is amazing that we attempt to comprehend the cruelty of the Holocaust. The loss of identity and self might have started with Adolf Hitler’s reign, for the Holocaust legacies, but we are all losing bits of ourselves constantly.
The Holocaust was something that should never be repeated and no one should ever want death camps, concentration camps, deaths on purpose, or anything else that the Nazis did to the Jews. That is why we should all learn things from this and accept that some people are different and not everyone is perfect, but we must accept our differences and get along. We should all make it a priority to always look on the bright side of life, even when things are bad like Anne Frank did. We now know how evil the Nazis were and no today, many people now hate them. Anne Frank was a very inspirational person through her
We will never stop until we win back what we deserve.” This obviously shows that Germans disliked the treaty when he describes the treaty “disgraceful” and they were really angry. Count Brockdorff-Rantzau, leader of the German delegation at Versailles said Article 231- the war-guilt clause - was: "a lie". Germany officially denied the war-guilt clause in 1927. He also stated “Those who sign this treaty, will sign the death sentence of many millions of German men, women and children.”-He is trying to portray that treaty of Versailles will make the German people suffer. The Germans also hated the loss of territory.
Inmates were broken after this relentless torture; we wonder why there wasn’t a mass revolt within the camps, and this is probably why, they had no will to resist oppression anymore. The sickest part of this all is that of the mass dehumanization played surprisingly by the entire people of Deutschland, now not all people played these sick game; most of the aggression was enforced by the German army. Moishe the Beadle was one of the first to experience this cruelty, “The Jews were ordered to get off... They were forced to dig huge trenches. ...
At the very start of the war, there were already so many assumptions about Germans. Once some of the assumptions proved to be accurate, people became frightened and terrified of all Germans. Those beliefs have endured and are still prevalent today. At the same time, it is true that the Germans, as a people, made mistakes. They elected Hitler, allowed him to rise to power and commit many atrocities.
One of Wiesel 's strengths in Night is to show the full face of dehumanization. It is something that the Nazis perpetrated against the people they imprisoned. The tattooing of numbers on the prisoners, something that Eleizer notes, is of extreme importance. A- 7713 is by definition an example of dehumanization because it robs the humanity of the individual. The abuses that the Nazis perpetrate on their prisoners is another example of dehumanization.
After the government was accused of maltreatment, they fought back by doing an “ethnic cleansing” of Darfur’s non-arabs. The only pro of this was proving that there actually was persecution going on through the government in the Sudan. These oppressions and persecutions going on are just adding more fuel to the fire. Humanity is capable of carrying out these cruelties by genocide leaders being mentally ill, having no social order, and specific groups being oppressed. Hitler’s psychological disorders worsened the violence of the Holocaust.
