As the Holocaust came to its near end, torture for those in Sighet, Transylvania begins. On page twenty, cruelty stirs up for the Jewish town after ghettos were set up. “A Jew no longer had the right to keep in his house gold, jewels, or any objects of value.” “There was a new decree: every Jew had to wear a yellow star.” In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, every fellow citizen has privileges that cannot be taken away due to race, color, sex, or language. Since their status was considered inferior, their rights were taken away before they knew that the Germans were going to wipe out their population. Under these quotes recited from the text, article two can be matched with the book’s description of discrimination.
With such dreadful conditions, the Jews began initiating resistance and uprisings. Even though the prisoners knew loss was unquestionable, they fought bravely and certain. The Jews wanted the future generation to know that they would never give up without a fight. The Nazi officers kept watch of the prisoners every second; the inhumanity of the guards murdered the spirit of the Jews. Because of the environment of the camps, a countless number of Jews died every day.
They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes. This led to taking Jews from their homes and sending them to concentration camps, where they were experimented on, gassed, and put in horrible conditions. As the World War II neared the end, the Allied Nations began liberating the concentration camps, which eventually became the end of the war. The Holocaust is considered a genocide, and though it is one of the most famous, it is not the only
Do you know what concentration camps are?They were created as a final solution to destroy all Jews. Concentration camps were designed during the holocaust. Adolf Hitler wanted to take control and knew that Jews were already disliked. That is why he came up with concentration camps,to imprison Jews. They were a terrible place for Jews during the holocaust because of the way they had to live and the reasons behind why they were there.
In the novel Night, Idek shows evil in every way. Idek beats on Eli’s father countless times once to try to get Eli’s gold crown from his mouth. When he wasn’t beating on one of the prisoners he was taking advantage of a young girl at the camp. We see no sign of family in Idek’s life but plenty of evil outbreaks. Even though Idek is also Jewish just like all the other members of the camps and he too treats the prisoners like the German officers would or even worse.
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. They were different because Japanese Internment camps were made to just move the Japanese until they could have houses for them.Nazi Concentration camps were made to work and then kill the
Thou Shall Not Kill; a commandment, a law and four words to protect those who cannot defend themselves. These four words did little to protect the millions of Jews, during the Holocaust; who were hunted down, herded into camps, brutally beaten both physically and mentally and marked for death. Since then and before our world has seen this played out again and again in places like Nanking, Rwanda, Cambodia, and Darfur and on farms and in slaughterhouses in every country of the world. This bloodshed will not be cease until those four words are truly embraced by every culture to include every living species on this earth. Every trial and tragic event Eli Wiesel endured and wrote about in his novel, Night has happened to an animal in the woods,
Hold on only to your belt and your shoes…” (Wiesel 35), said an SS officer. Thus, commanding that the Jews had to strip their own clothes. This is dehumanizing in many ways, because the SS officers are commanding the prisoners to strip, which is very personal and should not be forced upon a human. Furthermore, this affected Wiesel and his father in many ways, as it took away their own freedom and made them scared. In conclusion, using commands to boss around Jews like a pack of wild dogs was just one of the many ways SS officers dehumanized the Jewish
As a Jew, there are strict laws that most of them, if not all, follow habitually. To strip them of their valuables and to force them to go against their religion is equivalent to stripping them of their rights. On page 42, Eliezer states, “The three ‘veteran’ prisoners, needles in hand, tattooed numbers on our left arms. I became A-7713. From then on, I had no other name.” First and foremost, it is against Jewish religion to have permanent markings on the body and this was something the Nazis forced upon them.
At camp they would work untill the Nazi’s thought it was time to kill them. During 1933 the Nazis started to establish a network of camps. They were concentration camps due to the fact that they were used to concentrate enemies and certain groups of people in one place all together. Not one was better than the other for the Jews though, they all were gonna eventually gonna get killed by either sickness or the Nazi’s. The camps were not kept well, they were kept dirty and nasty cause it did not make a difference if they were clean or not to the
