It took so much strength for not only the soldiers to fight but also the people in the concentration camps. If you were to go outside you would see the most awful sight you could’ve ever imagined. You would walk out, and you would find your brothers and sisters on the ground, killed for who they are, because they aren’t good enough, because they believe in a certain religion, because it isn’t what other people want. The people in the concentration camps were never safe. Every day, they had to hope and pray that they wouldn’t die, and some of them didn’t.
Millions of people don’t deserve this. On another history class assignment we were taught, ¨They wanted to isolate and convince them to leave. They acted as though the Jewish people didn't exist.¨ (Anti Jewish laws worksheet in notebook)The Germans should not have any rights to treat anyone like this, killing millions of kids, couples, and families and humans in all. The fact that no other countries tried to help or stop them until later on is terrible. Jews trying to leave to other countries were only accepted if they had the paperwork and money for it and most of the time the countries closed their doors after a certain number of Jews escaped and made it
The prisoners of the concentration camps are constantly tortured and neglected by the German officers who run the camps. The cruelty of the German officers at the concentration camps change Elie’s personality throughout the novel. At the beginning of the novel, Elie is deeply religious and spends most of his time studying Judaism. However, by the end of the novel, Elie believes that God has been unjust to him and all the other Jews, and has lost most of his faith. The cruelty of the German officers also changed the other Jews as well.
This is because the Treaty of Versailles was an imperfect agreement that punished Germany too much and negatively affected both Germany and Europe in physical, political, and financial ways. The physical alterations of German land by the treaty led to the expanding displeasure of the German people. As Macmillan (2001) mentions, many echoed similar opinions; "why should Germany lose 13% of its territory and 10% of its population?" As a result of the treaty, Germany lost its overseas colonies, Alsace-Lorraine, Poland, and more. Henig (1995) states that, "the Germans never accepted that they had suffered defeat".
Although Hareton should have been the owner of Wuthering Heights, he was skipped because he appeared to be a servant and was ignorant. “He does not know his letters” (Brontë 160). Hareton was purposefully never taught anything that could help him prove himself as the true owner of Wuthering Heights. “But poor Hareton, the most wronged, was the only one who really suffered much. He sat by the corpse all night, weeping in bitter earnest” (Brontë 246).
How could people segregate others because of a religion they didn’t understand? Nobody should ever have been treated the way they have. In the eyes of the Germans, the Nazis, and the people included on the wrong side of the holocaust, they were hungry dogs. The book “Night”, took us through the story of what happened to him, and all of the things that he went through during the holocaust. It went from the beginning to the end telling his traumatic experience.
Jehovah Witnesses were well known in Nazi Germany for not straying from the words of Jehovah. This was very threatening to Hitler, as they refused to sign documents of loyalty to the Third Reich. This caused them to be treated like ‘dangerous’ traitors to Hitler and be sent to camps. People of Polish Descent Other than Jewish people, Hitler was especially against Poles, infamously saying to kill "without pity or mercy, all men, women, and children of Polish descent or language. Only in this way can we obtain the lebensraum [perfect living space] we need," to his army.
He said that ‘people have been dying around me like flies and I’ve had nobody else to paint”, so he decided what better subject than himself. As Bacon felt like there was nobody else around him to support him or love him, his self portraits carry a raw sense of anxiety and alienation. They often have an intense sense of fear. The pieces also reflect how everyone felt after the incomprehensible atrocities of the Holocaust that came to light at the end of World War Two. However, his piece called “Self portrait with injured eye” painted in 1972 seems to focus on bacons aim to display and uncover the truth about love.
The sterile Waste Land was a metaphor for a Europe that had been devastated by war and where, as you said it yourself, “the dead tree gives no shelter”. To a lot of people, including me, your poem “The Waste Land” is a complex poem that in one way is about the psychological crisis that came after World War I. After I read your poem and considered what you wanted to mediate, I came to the conclusion that you wanted to describe how you and many others felt after World War I. Some people were in pain because they had lost everything while others had false hope about the future. Was this your intention or did the war have any effect on your poem at all?
Wiesel was one of the minority of Jews to survive the Holocaust. Unfortunately his family did not make it through with him, and this still has lasting effects. It is clear that Wiesel’s identity changed completely during his experiences in Auschwitz; he lost his faith in God and he became indifferent to his survival and the survival of his family members. Despite these hardships, however, he ultimately became a stronger person than he was before. His life goal was to tell everyone about one of the most tragic periods in the history of mankind.
