An article was soon violated when Chlomo Wiesel announced, “I have terrible news. Deportation.” After the announcement from Eliezer’s father, Hungarian polices started shouting, “All Jews outside! Hurry! The time’s come now…You’ve got to leave all this…” After forced from their homes, they were sent to experience brutality at Auschwitz/Birkenau, Buna, Gleiwitz, and Buchenwald. Once the Germans omitted the inferiors from their safe haven, the superiors destroyed articles nine: freedom from containment and
When Moishe is taken away from the town of Sighet, he returns only to described the horrific series of murders he witnessed. Saying in detail how German officers would use babies as target practice for the machine guns, family members were killed in front of other members, and of the father who plead to be killed before his son. The other Jews did not believe his stories, until the German army arrived at their town. The army took their rights away slowly, which prompted the Jews to change emotionally. Eventually they stopped being seen as human, as they were prohibited to go to restaurants or cafes.
Passive Resistance In 1939, WWII began when Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party invaded Poland, causing six million Jewish people to fear for their lives. This fear began when all people and citizens had to complete a census and carry an identification card. Second, the Jews had to wear the Star of David and they were forced into ghettos. Third, they were taken to the concentration camps and the death camps. In “Resistance During the Holocaust” resistance was so hard because many Jews were murdered by the Nazis and they had very little access to weapons.
You experience the worst young. In Elie Wiesel “Night” Teenage Elie is Jewish and was sent to the concentration camp with his family and struggled to maintain his identity in the society he’s in. In this memoir Elie tries to stay strong and survive living in the concentration camp during 1941-1945. Living in an oppressive society impacts Elie’s identity by shaping his views about the hungarian police, people in the camp, and himself. In the beginning before the jews were sent to the concentration camp the hungarian police were very violent towards the jews they were forcing them out the house treated them like they were in the military.
In one of their first real experiences to the German soldiers they were forced to wait for hours while the German ss counted every Jewish citizen. In the story Ellie says at one point “ we were put in cattle cars 100 to a car” the people barely had space to breath in such tight space cramped against 100 other skinny people. They would wait in their own waste till they reach their next location throwing any dead out into the snow with no berial along the way. The respect in general really shows the lack of compassion from the Nazi. One can only hope that they really didn't think that jews were people, because it tears people up to see a dog abused much less a human being.

In the novel Night, Idek shows evil in every way. Idek beats on Eli’s father countless times once to try to get Eli’s gold crown from his mouth. When he wasn’t beating on one of the prisoners he was taking advantage of a young girl at the camp. We see no sign of family in Idek’s life but plenty of evil outbreaks. Even though Idek is also Jewish just like all the other members of the camps and he too treats the prisoners like the German officers would or even worse.
Uwem Akpan’s “My Parents’ Bedroom,” is a great example of such a short story. Even though the story is fictional, it follows the Rwandan genocide of 1994 after much many a mob took to the streets murdering the Tutsi population (Akpan 703).

On September 1, 1941 Hitler ordered all of the Jews to wear a yellow star. If they removed it and were caught they were imprisoned and taken to labor camps or shot on the spot. Catchers searched for hidden Jews everywhere. If Catchers found them they would be taxed large amounts of money. Jews didn’t have much money already especially since they had taken over their businesses and workplaces, so being taxed was not good for them.
