On page 31 in Fahrenheit 451, Guy Montag and Captain Beatty, who are firemen, say, “‘What happened to him?’ ‘They took him screaming off to the asylum.’ ‘He wasn't insane’...’Any man’s insane who thinks he can fool the government and us.’” They automatically assume that the person is insane because they were harboring books and hiding them from the government. Both of these stories show how the government is being unjust and unreasonable. Also, the firemen in Fahrenheit 451 have their job backwards. They burn books instead of putting out fires in an emergency. They carry around blow torches rather than hoses.
Montag has a personal revolution; he realizes the dangers of restricting information and intellectual thought. Ironically, Fahrenheit 451 is one of the most banned books in American schools. The book was seen as evil for ideas like opposing the suppression of freedom by parties that presumed they had all the answers. Books such as Fahrenheit 451, 1984, Brave New World, The Giver, and The Hunger Games have been banned in schools, and they all explore the themes of suppressing freedom, information, and intellectual thinking. Prohibiting these books will only lead less thought; it will lead to the ultimate demise of society.
Overall, the Nazis did many cruel things to Jews that were completely unnecessary. Nazis gained their reign in 1933 and lasted around a dozen years. They performed many barbaric actions to the Jews throughout their reign. This included taking down their businesses and stripping them of their citizenship. Hitler supported the Nazis as Adolf Hitler is their leader.
They would mow down row upon row of shivering, half naked adults, and smash the heads of babies with a show of pity or remorse(Wistrich). The psychological effect on those who lived during the Holocaust are beyond any superficial description. Hitler mainly targeted the Jewish population because he defined Jews as a race not a religion. For the period of 12 years million of Jews lived under the Nazi power and it persecution towards them. They held the highest population in all and every camp.
While he dictated, the culture of Germany was changed. Hitler wanted to make the population all think and be one certain way. To make this happen he made, “ Musical performances, movies, and other cultural public activities...all meant to make German’s brains exactly like the Nazi, eliminating any other thought of anti-government”(1). By controlling what people watched and read, Hitler brainwashed Germans to think positively of him and the Nazi’s. The population was not able to freely read or watch any sort of literature or other arts.
In the novel Anthem the author, Ayn Rand discusses the ways Equality 7-2521’s world is a dystopia because independent thought, information and freedom are restricted, the natural world was banished and distressed, a concept is worshipped by the citizens and the society is an illusion of a perfect , utopian world. To begin with, Ayn Rand explains how the Equality 7-2521’s world is a dystopian society because the freedom of think and do anything for yourself is restricted. Equality states “It is a sin to write this. It is a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see... It is as if we were speaking alone to no ears but our own.
In 1925 when Mein Kampf was released, Hitler’s ideology blamed Jews for Germany’s failure when they only made up almost less than 1% of the German population. Adolf Hitler was a notorious figure. He told lies one after another and German citizens believed him. Adolf Hitler had Germany fooled and the whole country blindly followed him into a dictatorship. Germany was looking for someone to point the finger at for their regression and Hitler gave them the perfect victims.
During the war, Ray Bradbury witnessed the Nazi book burnings as a teenager, where the Nazis would burn all books going against their beliefs. Bradbury also would have witnessed what is called “The Great Purge” where many poets and writers were either arrested or even executed. As he later became a writer, with him witnessing such events, it would only make sense for him to write a novel about a time where books are banned, to show the readers the importance of books in our society. Some themes discussed in this story are the themes of literature and writing, technology and modernisation, rules and order, wisdom and knowledge, violence, identity, dissatisfaction and man and the natural world. “Fahrenheit 451” is entered around Guy Montag, who gets curious about books, in a world where books are both banned and burned.

The Olympics were the biggest gift that the Fuhrer received when he started his dictatorship and twisted laws to strike at the Jews. After the first World War transpired, Germany was left a broken country. Germany was forced to compromise and sign the Treaty of Versailles, which limited
Jackson Craig Vero-Lynn Honors 11 English Some Date Nazis role in the holocaust The holocaust is one of history’s biggest travesties caused by the Nazis during World War 2. During his rise to power, Adolph Hitler claimed that Germany had been tainted by people who were not Aryan, Hitler’s ideal race of blonde hair and blue eyes, he claimed that in order to make Germany whole these undesirables must be eradicated. Initially Hitler took the Jewish rights and freedoms away stripping them of any power. This went on till Jews could no longer own property, vote, own businesses, no longer allowed national health care, and so on. When theses efforts to move the Jews out of Germany did not work Hitler turned to rounding all of the Jews up and
