Hallways are filled with smiling faces, but some are hiding their true self, and she knows that “crowded hallways are the loneliest places,” at least for her (Hayes). She sidesteps these types of people in high school; the ones looking pleased to see her, but immediately after she’s departed, they retain nothing but vulgar and insulting comments. It can be tough to exclude these people apart from others, especially when they’re exceptional actors. Those acting like this usually think they are better than everyone else, usually don’t have a reason, and usually don’t even know them.
Looking down upon others without cause, they manage to boost the confidence of their insecure selves. She’s found sitting and working with them in class, no conflict involved, and by …show more content…
If this is the case, then why wasn’t it fully acceptable when Hitler was the cause of eleven million deaths (Schwartz)? Hitler discriminated against people because of their hair and eye color, things that one cannot control. Hitler labeled people because of their race. Hitler killed people because he wanted to. Hitler believed people were just completely incompetent.
Having an entire army of Nazi’s behind him and supporting him, he was able to kill a massive amount of people. Comparatively, the “popular” group in high school always backs each other up in everything that they aspire to do, whether it be right or wrong.
Walking around with his head held all high and mighty, as if he was a God, he based his “perfect race” off of his own opinions, just the same as her classmates judge her based on their own false pretenses. The teenagers who think they are all “that” label people as annoying, weird, nerdy, ugly, friends, hated, tolerable, the possibilities are endless. Hitler was more basic in his labels, you either had a Yellow Star of David sewn into your clothes, or you walked around with a

He benefited from a form of government called fascism. Fascism is a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts the nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. Basically, if you disagreed with the leader’s ideas you were either censored, put in jail, or killed. When Hitler came to power he started World War II, he didn’t have to answer to anyone to stop him from doing it so he did, so that resulted in over 60 million people dying which was a little over 3% of the population at the time. Hitler industrialized death in this war as shown in Night, “An SS officer had come in and, with him, the odor of the Angel of Death” (Wiesel 28).
Since she doesn’t talk, she ends up separating herself from students, teachers, and even her family. At some point she realizes, “... I am the only person sitting alone,”(Anderson,3). She blocks everyone out because of the shame. She doesn’t think people would care if she told them what happened and ends up feeling without meaning and
This is because society has told us that Hitler is bad it doesn 't highlight the good he did or anything else other than Hitler bad man kills poor old jews. I find that this attitude while not entirely without reason exaggerates the qualities of both sides to the point. Kids today feel a hatred or sadness based on an event they might not know a dang thing about. But when they finally realize that the differences didn 't need to be so blown out of proportion the realize
His mind was corrupted and therefore he was corrupted and what he did was corrupted. The society today can help if the MAJORITY of the people wanted to help. Then our society would be so much better. But I can’t blame a corrupted man for doing something corrupted. If I were corrupted and in Hitler’s shoes I would have probably done the something.
Cruelty in the Holocaust During the time of World War II, many tragic events happened. One of the biggest tragedies that took place would have to be the Holocaust. The Nazi party was given orders by Hitler to arrest most of the Jewish population, with this came the concentration camps and dehumanization.
“Every child says “Heil Hitler!” from 50 to 150 times a day, immeasurably more often than the old neutral greetings. The formula is required by law” (https://www.facinghistory.org/holocaust-and-human-behavior/chapter-6/heil-hitler-lessons-daily-life). They also say this a lot in The Book Thief when they try to make all the children in Liesel’s town faithful Hitler Youth members. This shows how influential Hitler was and how easy it was for his intolerance to be passed
These are only some of the reasons why Hitler is the NUMBER ONE person to blame for the Holocaust. Hitler created on one of the greatest crimes against humanity ever committed. Hitler has turned his hatred for Jews into a national policy of mass extermination through creation of hundreds of concentration camps. He stated that Germans (what he called the "Aryan" race) were the highest "creators of culture" in the world and should be the masters of
The Holocaust is a shining example of Anti-Semitism at its best and it was no secret that the Nazis tried to wipe out the Jews from Europe but the question is why did the Nazis persecute the Jews and how did they try to do it. This essay will show how the momentum, from a negative idea about a group of people to a genocide resulting in the murder of 6 million Jews, is carried from the beginning of the 19th Century, with pseudo-scientific racial theories, throught the 20th century in the forms of applied social darwinism and eugenics(the display of the T4 programme), Nazi ideas regarding the Jews and how discrimination increased in the form of the Nuremberg Laws , Kristallnacht, and last but not least, The Final Solution. Spanning throughout the 19th century, racial theories were seen. Pseudo-Scientific theories such as Craniometry,where the size of one’s skull determines one’s characteristics or could justifies one’s race( this theory was used first by Peter Camper and then Samuel Morton), Karl Vogt’s theory of the Negro race being related to apes and of how Caucasian race is a separate species to the Negro race, Arthur de Gobineau’s theory of how miscegenation(mixing or interbreeding of different races) would lead to the fall of civilisation.
In 1945 jews and many others types of people were taken from their homes, apartments, and other places and were taken to concentration camps. concentration camps where they kept them to kill, torture, and just to make them feel horrible and even worse. Auschwitz was one of the most well known camp it was more of a death camp in was first opened in April of 1940. It was more that 3.5 miles long so it was pretty big. Did you know that more than 6 million jews were killed in the holocaust

Taking the lives of 6 million Jews alone, the Holocaust is one of , if not the, greatest tragedies in history. It is completely deranged that at one point in time, millions of people stood by and supported Adolf Hitler. Adolf was a man who stored so much hatred towards Jews, homosexuals, Gypsies, etc., that he found it acceptable to kill them through mass shootings, gassings, and Nazi camps. Other times called ‘concentration camps,’ the mere idea of Nazi camps was purely wicked. Disease, forced labor, starvation, and murder are only a few things that were incorporated into these camps.
In The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, the portrayal of life in Nazi Germany depicted in the novel is accurate, specifically regarding to the indoctrination of the youth, Racism, and the propaganda. The novel tells about this young girl Liesel going to a foster’s home where she is going to live in. During Liesel's days in Molching, Germany , she experience what’s it like having Hitler as a powerful King and what happened during those times. During the life in Nazi Germany for the youth, Hitler wanted to teach all of the youth that he was the leader and that everyone must obey him.
He believed nature never wanted people to blend and it had always been this way, so if we change now it would ruin everything. He is convinced people that since it had always been this way it should not be changed. Hitler also uses the fallacy of either/or. He gave the readers two options of what would happen if there was racial crossing. The two options were “ lowering of the level of the higher race or physical and intellectual regression and hence the beginning of a slowly but surely progressing sickness”(314).
Ironically, his followers, and the race that he thought is competent and is above all the others, did not question Hitler’s teachings and did not consider whether he provided enough and logical evidences to maintain his points. They just supported him because their sense of trepidation was threatened, or perhaps they could not recognize the irrationality of his beliefs. Either way, Hitler still successfully inveigled millions of people into conforming to his ideologies, which unfortunately urged them to favor the idea of maltreating other non- Aryan races, specifically of the Jewish
