The Nazi Concentration camp was made to kill the Jews or make them work until they can no longer usually it was both they would work you until you couldn 't work anymore then they would kill you. Although people would say they were the same because the people in the camps were still taken from their homes forcefully, and they were both treated like dirt but people in Japanese Internment camps were never going to the camp to die, unlike the Nazi camps, we only did that so that we could move them away from some of the crucial resource areas. The Japanese-Americans we settled very close to some very important resource facilities crucial for the war and didn 't want to risk an attack. Japanese Internment camps and Nazi Concentration camps are two very different things.
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.
The world didn't even know what the Jews had to go through, and what was happening to them and the pain and loss when people died (killed sometimes) or separated and sent to different camps. Jews had to work super hard and if they were not a jew then they didn’t have to worry about getting taken. Once they were taken away to concentration camps, they had to go through this process. They would either pass and survive or not pass and die. The world just thought everything was okay
The Nazi officers wanted the Jewish men to march like they were animals, and to not stop until they deemed fit. The Jewish were also marching in freezing weather, and had no food or drink while they were marching. They were expected to be like machines, and if they failed as machines, they were simply finished off by the SS. Elie described, “When the SS were tired, they were replaced. But no one replaced us.
The people had already put aside their emotions for others, and began to give up all hope for a better life, and then the public executions made many give up their religious beliefs and hope for a nice afterlife. Whenever the gallows first showed up, and the first hanging of a boy took place, Elie thought, “this boy, leaning up against the gallows, deeply upset me”(Wiesel, 62). The sense of justice and that the good were rewarded and the bad were punished began to fade. The Jews can see that the judges in the camps can do as they please and choose who lives and dies, and that the sentences are not always fair. The crematorium did not involve them looking death in the face, but with the gallows they were dehumanized because they could not look away from the facts that life is not fair and just, and that their beliefs should be doubted.
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.
Shek tried to disperse them, but they wouldn 't budge. ”(175) The Sherpas and porters really care about Zopa and they were willing to sacrifice their important jobs to save him. Sherpas and porters are from a country that is pretty poor. When they held the silent vigil they sacrificed not only themselves but their families.
Another account by Israël Belchatowski rang of the same hopeless sentiment upon learning from the Jewish Resistance that the Roundup would take place the next day, “This news spread like lightning. Terrified, the Jews didn’t know how to escape this misfortune. Those who could, left their lodgings, but most of them had nowhere to
Elie Wiesel watched as men threw babies into the crematorium. Elie Wiesel went through some big life changes and as a result he lost his faith in God, he lost his family. As a result of his experiences during the Holocaust, Elie Wiesel changes from a religious, sensitive little boy to a spiritually dead, unemotional man. When Elie Wiesel first arrived at Auschwitz with his family, he was a nice, sweet, innocent fifteen year old boy that had done nothing wrong to Hitler.
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.
“Human rights are being violated on every continent. More people are oppressed than free… One person of integrity can make a difference, a difference of life and death,” said Elie Wiesel about the world in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. He was so passionate about these things--But why? The answer lies in this: he was a Holocaust survivor, in fact one of the most prominent.
In the novel Night by Elie Wiesel, courage is demonstrated throughout the novel by various characters. To begin, courage was shown when Elie’s father was too weak to continue working and was selected to be killed, so Elie ran after his father, determined not to lose him. Courageously he chased after his father, “... Several SS men rushed to find me, creating such a confusion that a number of people were able to switch over to the right-among them my father and I. Still, there were gunshots and some dead” (Wiesel 96).
In the year of 1933, the Holocaust began and many Jews were scared and worried that they would be found, and sent off to be killed by the Nazis. Nearly 2,500 Jews were transported to an extermination camp known as, Treblinka. Treblinka was occupied in Poland, and it was established in 1941. In Treblinka, their gas house had the Star of David on the front wall. Before the Jews were killed they would have to listen to an SS officer* that would tell them that they arrived at a transit camp.
Major Events Between 1933 and 1939 that Affected the Holocaust Enabling Act of 1933 One of the final nails in the coffin of Jewish Germans was the Enabling Act. The Enabling Act or more formally known as the “Law to Remedy the Distress of People and Reich” (“The Enabling Act”, par. 1). was a law passed by the Nazi Party enabling Hitler to have all power of the government in his authority. With all power in Hitler's hands and absolutely no one that could stop him with contradictory political power and influence he could do almost everything as he wanted and forward his plans of genocide and hate onto the Jewish people.
Resistance to the Holocaust Families were separated at once when they arrived at the concentration camps. For Hitler, exterminating the Jews from German life was needed for the advancement of Germany. In addition, the first major step toward the Holocaust was the creation of ghettos throughout Germany. Resistance was a principal element of the Holocaust because of the uprisings, partisans, and defiance.
