That love and compassion made not feeling abandoned or alone easier for them. Compassion but no barriers on the emotions of the Jews. The Holocaust showed me that there is without any doubt, a need for compassion in your life, because it can truly save
The Holocaust, a moment in the history of fear, survival, hiding, and death. A time of one of the most feared actions taking place globally, World War II. Many people believe that the Holocaust did not exist, but it was very, very, real indeed. The Holocaust is the most unforgettable event that all survivors could not remove from their mind, it was used as an extermination process for Jews(Allen 6). Many say that there was an alternate path that could have been taken to avoid the war, and they are correct, there were multiple ways to avoid both World War ll and the Holocaust, but humanity and society were blinded by fear and bloodthirst, they really are not to blame, it was the most brutal events in human history(Vail 9).
If the public allows for these crimes to be forgotten, it only benefits those who committed such inhumane acts of violence. In his preface, Wiesel states that he is “... a witness who believes he has a moral obligation to try to prevent the enemy one last victory by allowing his crimes to be erased from human memory.” (Wiesel viii) Even after their reign of terror is over, letting the stories of those who suffered to be lost in time allows the Nazis and their allies one last victory over the Jews. Already, the victims had felt abandoned.
Elie Wiesel voiced his emotions and thoughts of the horrors done to Jewish people during World War II whilst developing his claim. Wiesel “remember[s] his bewilderment,” “his astonishment,” and “his anguish” when he saw they were dropped into the ghetto to become slaves and to be slaughtered. He repeats the words “I remember” because he and the world, especially those who suffered in the ghettos and camps, would never be able to forget how innocent suffered. Consequently, he emphasized that “no one” has the right to advocate for the dead. Like many other people in the world, he lost his family during the war.
Nyiszlis story is contributed greatly to the history of the Holocaust. Although people might say the way Dr. Nyiszli acted in Auschwitz wasn’t right, he did it so he can share his story and the truth with everyone. He had a reason for it all. Now the world knows how cruel and cold-hearted they had to be to do all those evil things. Nyiszli tells us how SS officers were so heartless that they put thousands of people in ovens without even caring.
All the orders Nazi soldiers obeyed are crimes that refuse forgiveness because these orders show us how evil soldiers’ hearts were when they killed millions of innocent Jewish people; consequently, we cannot forgive them because this action will go beyond our
“I told him that I did not believe that they could burn people in our age, that humanity would never tolerate it . . .” (Wiesel 33) These were the few words that were uttered by the bewildered Elie Wiesel when the inhuman intentions of the Nazis were made clear to all the Jews in the concentration camps: either work or be burnt. Despite the incident being real and happening right in front of Elie’s eyes, the cruel intentions of the Nazis were so extreme and inhuman that Elie had a hard time believing the magnitude of the situation; that everything going around him was just another nightmare. Taking the quote above by Elie Wiesel as an example, Elie Wiesel’s Night shows that the mass scale genocide of a racial or religious group leads to their extreme suffering and dehumanization.
The Hypothalamus were coded by evolution and help us survive every day; they are the sources of our ingenuity and our compassion. They are everything we are, etched in all of us are also the sources of horror and pain. Evil and the division between madness and sanity depicted in the Holocaust worse of most dehumanization, the ability to prejudice a human as inferior. Correspondingly, in the personal narrative "Night" by Elie Wiesel on page 31,"We can't let them kill us like that, like cattle in the slaughter", This statement illustrates the Jews weren't shown any compassion or humanity, they were pests, rats and the Nazi made sure to make it seem that way. Elie Wiesel expresses his experiences and observations in which he and his fellow Jews
Dehumanization in Night “To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.” These words spoken by Nelson Mandela illustrate how the refusal of one’s rights infringes on their humanity, and ranks them lower than not only humans, but even animals. Throughout the memoir Night, by Elie Wiesel, the act of dehumanization by the Nazis is clearly evident during the entirety of Elie’s experience in the concentration camps. In addition, the theme of dehumanization is also found in the graphic novel, Maus, which illustrates the life in concentration camps as well.
Your close family and friends are a part your life. If you are able to communicate to them about what happened, they will not hesitate to provide you with their love and support, which in the case of surviving physical assault, can be invaluable in dealing with post-traumatic stress. Finally, if the attack was severe and you feel depressed, afraid or anxious all the time, get professional psychological help. Many people do not see the critical importance of psychological recovery in the aftermath of a traumatic event as our cultures often encourage us to “brush it off” or “just ignore it”.
Borowski’s This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen increases the horrors of the Holocaust by depicting an endless cycle of suffering caused by the victims, victimizing each another. Within Auschwitz, the differences between the victims and perpetrators were frequently blurred; the biggest difference was merely the way one suffered, as all the prisoners at concentration camps were victims. Some “lucky” victims were at less of a risk than others at the price of helping the Nazis, although for the fear of their own life they did not get much choice in the matter. In Borowski’s story, these prisoners were wealthy and referred to as “Canadians”; the Canadians were
I don’t think there is another quote out there that can better summarize life under Nazi rule. I think that this quote really gets the point across that if you see something terrible happening, and don’t try to stop it you’re just as bad as the person doing it. This really tells me that you can’t be afraid to speak up for something that is wrong, even if it means death. The quote mentions that if you stand by and lets all these bad things happen, that you are as guilty as the people doing them. I think that is very true, the counties who sat by and watched the holocaust happen are just as bad as the Nazis.
The Holocaust was a horrible time in the 1940s. Hitler the leader of the Nazi’s had an idea of just having the perfect people which was having blonde hair and blue eyes. Hitler's plan was to kill the people who didn’t have these appearances. Hitler would do this by creating concentration camps that would torture, kill people in many ways which for example burning, starving them to death. In the book Night a book Elie Wiesel a Holocaust survivor wrote, talks how Elie survived those terrible times.
The memoir Night, written by Elie Wiesel, recalls the horrific memories of fifteen-year-old Wiesel as he lives through World War ll and the Holocaust. During World War ll Adolf Hitler, the leader of the Nazi party and a German politician, ordered the round up of ethnic and religious groups of people who he disapproved of, thus creating the Holocaust. Throughout this period of time approximately thirteen and a half million people were killed under his order, the main groups being Jews, Soviet prisoners of war, Serbian and Polish citizens, as well as the disabled and the homosexuals.
