In Auschwitz where thousands of Jews were slaughtered daily is the witness to the emptiness that remains when man abandons all morality. It is a sight of apocalyptic proportions: grotesque block chimneys point their sad fingers to the heavens, while all that remains of the majority of the wooden barracks are their ruined foundations. The agony of the past is still snagged on the hurtful barbed wires, and a dreadful gloom stagnates over the camp, its spores infiltrating the hearts of people in the 21st century. The misery is irresistible. Wiesel writes with a power aimed at never letting people forget all that had happened in the Holocaust.
One day when the foreign Jews were taken away Moshe the beadle, Elie's teacher, was also take away. When he came back he was in distressed and told the town about how the Nazis were exterminating Jews. No one believed him and thought he was just imagining it until one fateful day when the Nazis came and took the jews to a ghetto along with elie and his family. While there they were starved and most of their rights were taken away. The day before Ellie’s family was scheduled to be taken to the concentration camp a maid offered to help them, but sadly Ellie’s dad refused.
These examples show the ignorance and lack of action by the people of Germany and surrounding countries, as well as the helplessness of the Jews during the Holocaust. While in the ghetto of Sighet, Elie witnesses the brutality the Hungarian police use to control the Jewish people. “The Hungarian police struck out with truncheons and rifle butts, to right and left, without reason… their blows falling upon old men and women….” (25) Finally, when riding the cattle car from Gleiwitz to Buchanan, citizens throw bread into the cars in order to watch the Jews fight for amusement. The quotes “They stopped and stared after us, but otherwise showed no surprise” (105) and “Dozens of starving men fought each other to death for a few crumbs. The German workmen took a lively interest in this spectacle” (105) display that the common public were cruel because they ignored Jewish persecution and even mocked it in a sense.
The way the lower class people were been treated in this movie was very sad, an example was when Chaplin enters the bathroom and lit a cigarette, the president’s face appeared immediately on the screen and shouted at him to get back to work which implies that despite the fact that the workers are not even paid for the bathroom breaks, they cannot use those breaks anyhow. Another example was when some group of men came to advertise the feeding machine so it can be feeding the workers while working instead of taking the lunch break, though the president rejects the machine because it wasn’t performing the way he want it to perform. The president was in charge of the workers time and was dominating over their time. Another significance of the upper class is that the president uses the screen to dictate and monitors his workers, he only watches them on the screen in his office and commands them on what to do. Another aspect of the sufferings of the lower class people was the teenage girl who steals in order to make ends meet, so she can feed herself and her family since the father is unemployed and this is an example of how the lower class people are in the society.
Which was shown as being full of meats and vegetables but forgets that most of the population cannot afford anything and are starving. Children are caught smuggling goods into town and are often punished severely for this, often death. It is said in the film that the Jewish people actually liked
“With people behaving like pigs, I felt the Jews were being destroyed. I had to help them. There was no choice.” -Oskar Schindler. Oskar Schindler was never a saint, but he was a hero to all the Jews he sheltered in his factory. Since Jews were dying of sickness and starvation, Schindler started to smuggle medicine and food to the Jews he employed.
A father and a son both died because they were fighting for a bread in order to survive. “His son searched him, took the bread, and began to devour it. He was not able to get very far”(Wiesel 96). This example shows that a father and a son are fighting for the piece of bread and hurting each other, and the father and the son died at the end which showed their inhumanity to other humans in order to avoid from the hunger. Other Jews
To begin, Rudolf Hess is a perpetrator because he was involved in killing and torturing many Jewish people. Even from a young age, Rudolf Hess blamed the Jewish people for the problems within Germany (UXL Biographies 1). After the war, which Germany lost, the country was in debt, and people were looking for something to blame. They turned to Jewish people. Adolf HItler assigned Rudolf Hess to many concentration camps where he was in charge of the deaths of many Jewish people.
When someone feels forgotten, they feel unimportant and worthless. The collaborators are the most responsible for the Holocaust by murdering thousands of Jews. Jews were indifferent because they were treated differently compared to other humans. They were treated like animals and made them do things that no human being should do. This contributed to the Holocaust because it made them seem
I advised him to leave it in his bag and throw it in the trash can after getting down from the train. But it is the same with others. People are so reluctant to even dispose their own waste improperly, which will eventually affect us as well the environment. Have you ever noticed red-colored wall art at railway stations? People are so sense less that they spit the paan (betel leaf chew) without realizing its effects on others.
