This essay will be exploring the theme of war through the use of language in Szymborska’s poetry with the focus of “still” and “Starvation camp near Jaslo”. In many of her poems, Szymborska includes themes of war and destruction and the effect it had on both the Jewish and the Polish people. She talks about war in a negative way, giving her own opinion and often comparing it to modern times in an ironic statement. Her main focus of the two poems is the dehumanization of the Jewish people when Germany invaded Poland during the second world war, utilizing various techniques to describe the hardships that they had to go through in that time period. Having lived through two of the major wars in Poland (World war two and the cold war), she can describe the events vividly and succeeds in making the
Sonderkommandos who by Primo Levi standards were in a league with the SS officers, were the ones to put a stop to the horrors of Treblinka II, it made me question Levi’s testimony and question if his judgment was clouded by his opinion instead of facts. One thing that I know for sure is that Sonderkommandos may be viewed by many as perpetrators, but no one can question that they were heroes for having destroyed Treblinka II and stopping the killings of Jews by thousands. It’s essential to grasp the concept and understand the importance of The Shoah not only by a survivor or someone who was directly affected by The Shoah, but to learn about it by a second party. The reason it’s important to learn it from a second party is that they bring an outside look that is not affected by emotions or

Throughout a time of conflict, a positive outlook on the current situation can help someone survive even the most difficult of situations. An opposing viewpoint to this claim is that a positive outlook might be a denial of the situation, however, having a positive attitude is just seeing the best in every situation that someone is faced with, not denying that it exists. During her time in hiding Anne Frank used a positive attitude to make the time she spent in hiding much more enjoyable for her, and those around her. In The Diary of Anne Frank, Anne Frank states, “The Annex is an ideal place to hide in. It may be damp and lopsided, but there's probably not a more comfortable hiding place in all of Amsterdam.
Contrary to Islamic antisemitism, Nazism is a despicable ideology of the past , forever (G-d willing) discarded into the ashbin of history. Of course, this does not mean we should ever forget the atrocities committed by Hitler. Today though, so-called ‘anti-Zionism’ is the greatest threat to the Jewish people. For example, violence against Jews increased following
The positive thinking that usually comes with optimism is a key part of effective stress management” (“How to Stop Negative Self-Talk.”). While it may seem small, even the slightest of optimism can help you through tough situations and help you to believe such as Anne Frank did. Positivity and optimism may go unrecognized or even acknowledged, but it still helps people and provides solace. The text says, “When the Van Daans arrive, we'll be able to build cupboards and other odds and ends out of the wood piled in the attic” (Frank). Anne is a shining example of this, as she thought of even the smallest things as fun and enjoyable.
He questions her ‘do you hope that you can expiate the crimes of the past by suffering in the present?’ Thus demonstrating that this situation has forced David to ponder over the impact and importance that history has. Later on when Lucy asks as to why the rapists expressed so much hatred David explains that ‘it was history speaking through them […]a history of wrong…it came down
Her generosity leaves him speechless ending the story with his soft words “Thank You Ma’am” (Hughes 4). If we are able to understand the advantages that compassion brings to us, we can be able to find peace and joy in our simple but caring acts of compassion on a day to day basis. When we are in situations where we are tempted to act in violence and hatred, we must look out the benefits of compassion which will enable us to limit the hate that we see in our world
There 's a subtle wonderfulness to this story. It 's such a relatable story that involves day to day recounts of activities, Kimberly and her mother 's struggles and strives, financially and culturally. Especially from Aunt Paula. Once she said: “You can release your heart, older sister” (148).
