“If you 're going through hell, keep going “- Winston Churchill “Un di Veit Hot Geshvign “(And the World Remained Silent) - Eliezer Wiesel. These last two quotes are inspiring yet the theme is different. Winston Churchill and Elie Wiesel, two exceptional individuals, who lived through the war and presented us with their point of view towards the war and how to cope with it. The best way to solve conflict is by speaking up, just like Wiesel. He kept a positive mentality and made certain everyone’s voice was heard too. He prepared day and night making sure that Britain won the war against Germany. War is better than peace at determining who is the group, what are its boundaries, and what it stands for. Churchill was a soldier who became prime …show more content…
He knew that it was important for people to speak out and be heard. Wiesel believed in justice for all. He swore to never remain silent whenever human lives were being humiliated and were suffering. He understood that now and then it was necessary to oppose whenever human lives were threatened, whenever men and women were persecuted for their political view, race, and religion. One of my favorite lines from his discourse is, “As long as one dissident is in prison, our freedom will not be true. As long as one child is hungry, our life will be filled with anguish and shame.” The reason I chose that line is that he is allowing us and the victims to know that we aren 't alone. This way we aren 't forgetting them, and that when they are incapable of speaking out, we are here to be their voices. We are here to protect them against whatever and whoever we have to stand up against because we are all one. We are all human. On page 56, Elie says “There is so much to be done, there is so much that can be done. “And that is absolutely accurate. There are a lot of things that can and should be changed about the world. But, there are many people who would want to help but because they are “different …show more content…
My point of view is that it is better to speak up in order to solve the conflict. I think that it is better to speak up because there are so many people who are intimidated to say what they think. They keep quiet and are never heard. It is very significant for everyone’s opinion to be heard. Commonly when people are getting abused, for instance, they are terrified to tell someone about it, so they suffer. I admire Churchill’s courage to fight for Britain by going to war, but I feel like he could 've done something else.It creates financial problems for all the parties involved, creates sadness, resentment, and most devastatingly: people die. If you go to war, not only are you losing money, that could be used for schools, shelter, hospitals, and food, you are exposing the lives of innocent people. War has never solved anything. Murdering an individual is never justifiable. Never. Death rips families apart, destroys bonds, and terminates love. Soldiers get hurt, physically and mentally, and killed. Think about all the children that are witnessing their friends and family die because of the wars. Each unique individual has a family, a job, love life, dreams and ambitions. All of which situations could have been solved much less violently, and less destructive.Animals and their natural habitats are also destroyed.They are not responsible for all the mischief that is being done, so why hurt them. It is definitely not fair. Ask yourself, how many lives should a leader be
Black and white. That’s how you were told to see, that’s how life was set, eventually though things will change. Oskar Schindler and Elie Wiesel were both on different sides but in many ways they were similar. Living becomes heavy, becomes hard but you must persevere. Elie Wiesel was put on the side of the victim he was hurt and treated like nothing whilst Oskar Schindler was treated like a king.
To be Human How does one remain himself as everything he has ever known is ripped away from him? Elie Wiesel recalls his own experiences with this challenge in his self written book, Night. In this book, Wiesel takes you on a eye opening ride to see and experience the hard life of Jewish people under German Control. Wiesel shows how to accomplish the nearly impossible, surviving.
But in the political spectrum they were both very opposite people, Winston Churchill wanted his people to stand up for what was right and not fear tyrannical powers whereas Adolf Hitler wanted to be the power that everyone feared. Winston Churchill gave his famous Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat speeches in 1940 he wasn’t yet Prime Minister of England but with that speech “The House gave him a 381-to-0 vote of confidence”5 caused him the gain a position that helped shaped the war and his country. Like Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill used the people of England emotions about the current war to help boost his popularity amongst the population “what is our policy? It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us”2 was inspirational words said to inspire the people to back up the war effort so England could hit Germany swift and hard to try to bring peace to Europe. A year after the war had started things were looking grim because a lot of countries had been having a hard time against the German advancement and to encourage the people to still support the war and not let them give up hope he said “Death and ruin have become small things compared with the shame of defeat or failure in duty”3 putting the events they had gone through in words like this made them realize that if they stopped now all the deaths and turmoil would have been for nothing and just a waste of time, money, and lives.
Churchill builds credibility in order to make his audience believe in his words by providing their standpoint in the war they face against Nazi Germany. The main objective of this speech is to encourage the British to fight for their country and not accept defeat in the battle known as World War II. He also addresses his audience and “Mr. Speaker” that the creation of a War Cabinet was necessary in order to protect
Growing up, I have learned about both World Wars, the Cold War, The Vietnam War, and the War on Terrorism. As interesting as war can be and how much one can learn from a cultures because of war, I have grown tired of wars. I have gone to public school for all of my education and I have seen multiple cases of bullying and too many acts of rudeness. As I mature, I find myself coming to terms with the world and my life, I am becoming to love all of it. When I wake up, my favorite thing to do is step outside and inhale the brisk morning air and admire the world I live in.
We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering.¨ Churchill is attempting to instill this patriotic attitude in order to unify the nation in the time of political and national unrest. His patriotic tone appeals to the emotions of the House and persuades them to follow him regardless of political standpoint.
A quote says, “No candle lit in his memory. His last word had been my name. He had called out to me and I had not answered” (112).This shows that he regretted not being able doing more in his father 's last hours and made moments more precious to him. He was changed so greatly from previous event and could recognize that and no longer do the things he wished . Wiesel says, “I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep.
Eliezer Wiesel and Jeanne Wakatsuki have very many things in common through rough experiences in the camps they were in. Eliezer and Jeanne have a lot in common like how they both changed personality’s throughout the story, how they showed fear in many situations, and lastly they both learned from these hard experiences. Even though Eliezer and Jeanne can relate in many ways they are actually quite different and experienced different things. For instance, Eliezer was not obstinate like Jeanne. Also, there was a point in the novel where he was completely alone while Jeanne had her family with her throughout the whole time in the camp.
He was able to inspire hope in people through allusions and comparisons to the past. He was able to inspire confidence and fortitude by giving people the honest situation at hand using logos. And he was able to deliver his main message of strength and readiness by constantly referring to it within his speech. Churchill’s speech wen t down in history, not because he said what the people wanted to hear, but because he said what the people needed to hear. His honesty and rhetoric made “Their Finest Hour” one of the most crucially important and greatest speeches of the Second World War if not the past
Churchill begins by giving context to the previous happenings of the war, in order to allow people to grasp the power of the German forces when it comes to invasion. Churchill states that “there has never been a period… of which we boast when an absolute guarantee against invasion… could’ve been given to our people”. One can’t be too overconfident about guarantees, because there is always a chance attached to them. However, Churchill reassures that the British naval and air powers can be exercised through preparation against “every kind of novel stratagem and every kind of brutal and treacherous maneuver”. These words
Brutality of Indifference There are an estimated 250,000 child soldiers in the world today that are fighting to survive and get through their lives every day. There were approximately 1.5 million child deaths in the holocaust. Ishmael Beah and Elie Weisel are both foreigners who struggled in life and struggle trying to understand why the world is so indifferent.
The King’s Speech does do great service to his figure by showing him in a positive light, despite him being a minor character in the film. He was depicted to be a intelligent, strong, and a friend to many; however, Churchill was not perfect and has conducted some actions that were unfavorable to the public. During
How do you expect someone to show you who they really are when dealing with conflict and not being able to overcome it? Leaders are most likely to overcome obstacles. While others can not deal with challenges. Sir Winston Churchill shows lots of courage when faced with arguments. In the story “the boy in the striped pajamas” also deals with conflict but reacts to it in different ways.
