The Nazi’s and the swatzika are very bad things. The Nazi’s killed over six million Jewish men, women, and children and 60 million people died in World War II which lasted for six years. Adolph Hitler was voted in as German Chancellor in 1933. He then created the Nazi party with its Swastika as a symbol for the Nazi party meaning racial purity.
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs. The Nazi thought they were the superior race, and Jews were “inferior” as well as a danger to the ‘perfect’ German community. Gradually, the German government was filled with people who believed that Jews needed to be purged. They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes.
As the Holocaust came to its near end, torture for those in Sighet, Transylvania begins. On page twenty, cruelty stirs up for the Jewish town after ghettos were set up. “A Jew no longer had the right to keep in his house gold, jewels, or any objects of value.” “There was a new decree: every Jew had to wear a yellow star.” In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, every fellow citizen has privileges that cannot be taken away due to race, color, sex, or language.
The paradox of being half ugly is shown all throughout Hitler 's actions. In WWII the entire Jewish population was the target for Hitler and his Nazis party. This led to millions of jews being persecuted and killed. One example of the ugliness of the war would be the discrimination and the hatred of other races. While in power Hitler created concentration camps to contain Jews and people not of German background.
The purpose of the camps were opposite, because the Concentration camps was about killing, and the Japanese Internment camps was fear. First, the Concentration camps were all about killing the Jews, during the Holocaust. “Today I have nothing but dismal and depressing news to report. Our many Jewish friends and acquaintances are being taken away in droves.”
Because of Hitler 's actions over 11 million were killed, 1 million of them being children. I think that the Holocaust was horrible and wrong and hopefully we will not have to experience anything like this again. I learned a lot from the books Night and The Book Thief. They made me realize how horrible the Holocaust was and what it was like to experience it. The Holocaust was a gruesome time where millions were killed, people were tortured, they were used in experiments and families were separated.
One example of when this right was violated is towards the beginning of the book, when Elie and his fellow Jews just arrive to their first concentration camp and Elie witnesses “babies.. Children thrown into the flames” by the truckloads (Wiesel 32). This had to be extremely demoralizing to see your own people die such a horrible death and also for those victims of the deaths to be babies and children is even worse. This event violated human rights because being put to death by flames is torture and it is degrading and unfair treatment and punishment not only to those who died by it but for those other inmates who had to witness it. Another event that violated the fifth article of human rights is later in the story when Elie is punished unjustly and receives “twenty-five” whip lashes and then is verbally assaulted by his Kapo for “mix[ing] into other people’s affairs” (Wiesel 57-58).
The Holocaust is a historical event that the murdered around 6 million Jews and 5 million non-Jews. The Jews were also used for harsh labor, experiments, and starvation (Steele 6-7). The reason for this mass murder was that a leader during the time named Adolf Hitler wants to make his country an anti-semitic country (Steele 22). This tragedy took place all over Europe the main location was in Auschwitz, Germany (Blohm 6). Jews were a main target in The Holocaust, but some other victims were Roma, Sinti, disabled, and any other opposing religions (Steele 7).
They were murdered in mostly death camps. Camps and ghettos were a terrible place to inhabit because the Jews are separated from the entire world and have little clues on what is happening outside of there. Jews were killed on site for no reason like for example walking
The Holocaust was a genocide in Germany of all European Jews and ‘undesirables’, led by Adolf Hitler; he managed to kill 6 million jews using concentration camps and systematic killing. In the concentration camps, the Jews were forced to do labour work in factories to manufacture goods for the war; conditions were terrible, as Jewish individuals were not treated well physically and psychologically. Previous knowledge and impressions of mine, regarding the Holocaust, came from classroom discussions, reading textbooks, and by doing assignments. Therefore, the film depicted how truly horrific the Holocaust was, as it ruined the lives of innocent individuals, due to a factor of their lives which they could not control; can not decide to be Jewish,
In the book of The Devil’s Arithmetic and in the movie by the same name, there is one central theme. The saddening theme of remembering what the past is for the Jews and what they struggled with. In the time period these historical fiction stories took place, the Holocaust was just beginning. This was a very dark time for all Jews. Today Jews still face prejudice, in almost every single country.
The Holocaust is one of the world's greatest tragedies to ever occur in the existence of all of mankind. Millions of Jews, killed, attacked, assaulted and left to fight a war they could not win by themselves. All while this was happening, millions of bystanders just watched and watched like the crowd at a football game. These bystanders had a chance at stopping the genocide of a whole religion, yet they didn't, why? The fear of being the spark rather than the flame that follows.
The tragic events of the Holocaust began when Adolf Hitler came to power. He tortured and killed Jews, homosexuals and gypsies because of their beliefs. The Nazis believe that the Jews posed as a threat to the German civilization so they discriminated them for years. They were forced to work on labor camps (concentration camps) and beaten if they attempted to withhold from pain. Furthermore, they faced starvation and illnesses, which also contributed to their deaths.
