In 1941 through 1945 there were many atrocities happening at once which destroyed many places around the world during World War II, but there is one specific event that impacted Europe by terrorizing many people, which was the Holocaust. At just 15 years old Elie Wiesel, author of the memoir Night witnessed the Holocaust first-hand, and he realized that it was vital to share his story with the world so people would be aware of what happened and avoid repeating mistakes in the future. In the memoir Night, Elie Wiesel uses imagery, hyperbole, and personification to make the story more realistic for the readers. These 3 types of figurative language help the reader to understand the experience that Elie and the Jewish community went through. The true story Night uses multiple of literary devices to help
The Holocaust has affected people horrifically especially the less fortunate. The book Night, narrated by Elie Wiesel shows the experience of a young Romanian boy being a prisoner in the Holocaust. Based on the terrible treatment of the less fortunate as seen through the elderly and children in the book Night and the antisemitism in America, it is clear that humanity is essentially not good. Throughout the book Night, it is shown that humanity is essentially not good through the horrific treatment of elderly people.
The book Daniel’s Story describes events that happened during the Holocaust through a fictional character, Daniel. The way the Nazis treated the Jewish people was awful and cruel. Many of these actions made me sick to my stomach, knowing that this actually happened. From his uncle’s ashes being sent in the mail, people beating up the Jews, a SS officer shooting a young boy, and the living conditions of the Jews in the ghetto, these are some of the events that were horrifying.
The Holocaust was an immoral machination orchestrated by the Nazi’s to eliminate any person who did not meet their criteria of a human. Millions were interned in camps all around Europe. Each person who survived the Holocaust has a different story. Within Elie Wiesel’s Night (2006) and the movie “Life is Beautiful” (2000) two different perspectives on the Holocaust are presented to audiences both however deal with the analogous subjects faced by prisoners. Inside both works you can find the general mood of sadness.
The Holocaust was a devastating event that had outreaching effects on many groups of people and many countries. Although most of this devastation happened to the Jewish Race. There are many books, movies, memoirs, and academic journals regarding the Holocaust, portraying how it affected different people and their stories. One memoir that will be discussed is Night written by Elie Wiesel about his life during the Holocaust. Also a movie by the name of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas will be discussed.
The Holocaust was one of the most horrible things that have happened in this world. There are friendly and evil people in this world and knowing if they are generous can be really hard. People are good at heart because, a lot of people are making sacrifices, trying to stick together, and therefore kids like Anne still think people are kind at heart. History has gone through some rough patches, but with history comes change. If you haven 't already heard, the Holocaust was basically a Jewish sacrificial offering that is burned completely on an altar.
Without the fear of being afraid of the camp at first arrival or the fear of the Jew not eating because they know they will be killed, there wouldn’t be much hope. This proves the point on why fear overpowers people and make them not do what they would normally due since there life is at risk. This truly shows the bad of the holocaust. Due to all the fear no one could stand up to
The novel ‘Night’ written by Elie Wiesel and the film ‘Schindlers List’ directed by Steven Spielberg, are both based in World War 2 and more specifically the holocaust and the attempted cleanse of the Jewish race. These two texts both heavily demonstrate the horrors and brutalities that the Jewish people had faced during the holocaust. The two depictions of these events have many similarities although one being word and the other being film, however they differ in perspective, Schindlers List showing an outside look at the events where Night is a first person experience. The two representations of the holocaust, although are opposites of perspective both do not shy away from showing the brutalities and the wickedness that took
The Holocaust was a horrible event in history that will scar humanity forever. With the events of the Holocaust being experienced by millions there are many different perspectives of said events. One such perspective is presented in Night, a memoir written by Elie Wiesel about his experiences as a young Jewish boy during the Holocaust. Another perspective is presented in Schindler’s List, a film directed by Steven Spielberg (based on the novel Schindler’s Ark by Thomas Keneally) about Oskar Schindler, a gentile who saves over one thousand Jewish lives during the Holocaust. Both pieces show heart wrenching stories of the abuse of a group of people in different ways, each using different mediums to convey their points.
This book shows how the Holocaust should be taught and not be forgotten, due to it being a prime example of human impureness. Humans learn off trial and error, how the Jewish population was affected, decrease in moral, and the unsettled tension are prime examples of such mistakes. The Jewish population was in jeopardy, therefore other races in the world are at risk of genocide as well and must take this event as a warning of what could happen. In the Auschwitz concentration camp, there was a room filled with shoes.
It is a common assumption among numerous people in the world that the Holocaust never existed. In fact, almost fifty percent of the world population never even heard of the Holocaust. Elie Wiesel helped people around the world learn about the Holocaust through his book “Night.” He wanted people to see the bravery, courage, and guilt of the Jews through his book. “Night” shows the horrific and malicious acts in the German concentration camps during the Holocaust.
A theme is a moral that the reader can take away from the story to use in their everyday life. The allegory, “Terrible Things” by Eve Bunting, the poem, “ First They Came for the Communists” by Martin Niemöller, and the memoir, Night by Elie Wiesel all share one common theme. In the 1900’s during the holocaust, many Jews and anyone who was part of the aryan race (blonde hair blue eyes) were taken away by Nazis led by Adolf Hitler. They were taken to concentration camps many children, the elder, and babies were exterminated once they got there because the Nazis felt there was no use to them. The jews that were needed went and got their heads shaven and marked with a tattoo of numbers that were used to identify them.
Life as a Jew during the Holocaust can be very harsh and hostile, especially in the early 1940’s, which was in the time of the Holocaust. “Sometimes we can only just wait and see, wait for all the things that are bad to just...fade out.” (Pg.89) It supports my thesis because it explains how much the Jewish community as
