“When I came to power, I did not want the concentration camps to become old age pensioners homes, but instruments of terror.” These are the words from one of the worst monsters in history-Adolf Hitler, and what he said in the quote was absolutely correct. These concentration camps were horrifying with the smell of burning flesh and the bloodcurdling screams of thousands of people. I learned that you had to work to survive and had to be emotionless according to Elie in the book Night. Learning about what they did in the concentration camps teaches us more and more about how lucky we are for living in this time period and to not live in fear of being tortured or killed. I learned several things in this book, some of which include, Jews getting into ghettos (a ghetto was a part of a city, especially a slum
Referenced in a documentary regarding medical practice during war entitled John McCrae’s War: In Flanders Fields, “Nothing could’ve prepared [doctors] for what they’d experience” (NFB). The main issue with doctors not being prepared for war was the new types of wounds they encountered. Hellish injuries were caused by shellfire. These shells when they hit the ground wreaked havoc on the bodies of soldiers, tearing flesh and causing the unforeseen mauling of limbs (NFB). Imagine these doctors, used to having x-rays and medical personnel to help them are reduced to operating by themselves on the most morbid wounds imaginable.
Elie was one of the millions of people who had to go through that and deal with the post-traumatic stress. By the end of his story, his diction and tone expressed true emptiness and sorrow. This is displayed by Wiesel saying “I wanted to see myself hanging on the opposite wall. I had not seen myself in the ghetto. From the depths of the mirror, a corpse gazed back at me.
He insists on the fact that inhumane vengeance will lead to injury and death, as well as “demoralization”. This argument is greatly supported by the death of Dr. King Jr; his view of nonviolence helped to grow and mature the farm worker’s movement. Civil workers are guilted into supporting their fallen hero in order to fulfill his dying wish. Chavez instructs them to “overcome… [their] frustrations” and support their causes through methods of peaceful protests. Chavez, appealing to their sense of emotion, manages to persuade a disconnected society by desperately wanting to avenge Dr. King’s untimely
Erich Maria Remarque was a German novelist who begins his work by comparing soldiers to things such as action figures. He does this comparison by mentioning how it is as if they have been shelved due to the fact that they don’t function properly anymore. He mentions how most World War I soldiers were injured rested in a hospital, which were classified by the places they 've been wounded. That whole building would be filled with human waste and destroyed body parts, being incredibly gruesome. This all meaning that the soldiers are practically dehumanized.
All the stands between certain death and living for this prisoner is Quan. He realizes this person is not a foreign combatant but still is enraged because he views this person as a foreign invader. Quan fights off his pleading soldiers to kill him and instead even with low food supplies still spares his life and feeds him. As brutal as war is he still honored prisoner of war rules and turns him over to a higher unit. This shows both controlled hatred and compassion towards another human
Euthanasia means “a good death” and “dying well”. A good death means dying with peaceful, painless, lucid and loved ones gathering around. Euthanasia defined as the termination of ill people’s life aim to reduce suffering from incurable and painful disease. Euthanasia classify into two major types, included passive and active. In passive euthanasia ill people dead by withholding of common treatment, such as antibiotics.
As Celaena started to become familiar with him she noticed he had empathy and unlike his father he had a humane nature that Celaena loved. For example, after Dorian’s father ordered his soldiers to kill 500 Eyllwe rebels he said “ I heard about those butchered rebels, and I- I’m ashamed… He swallowed, his eyes stinging. ‘You won’t believe me. But… I don’t want to be apart of that. I can’t call myself a man when I allow my father to encourage such unforgivable atrocities.’”(Maas,2012,pg.260) This conveys the theme because he is known to be brutal but in fact he is the complete opposite.
The character trait that describes Andy best is acceptance. Andy shows acceptance when he is realizing that he is dying from his knife wound: “He felt alone, wet and feverish and chilled. He knew he was going to die.” (Hunter 5). The evidence above suggests that Andy is showing acceptance because he already knows that he is going to die, so he stops trying to get help. Instead he lays quietly on the sidewalk trying to not cause anymore pain because he already accepts the fact that he is going to die.
The theme of death is one which has many contrasting views and the reactions to the inevitable disaster differ from person to person. In the six poems Through the poem ‘War Photographer’, Carol Ann Duffy casts a harsh light on the destruction and death from war and curiosities the apathy of the rest of the world, which is not directly affected by it, is. The poem starts with a photographer ‘finally alone’ in his dark room developing the horrors he has witnessed. The word ‘finally’ suggests the poet feels some relief to be alone in his darkroom after doing his demanding job. The undeveloped spools are referred to as “spools of suffering.” These spools are filled with images of agony and the photographer sets them out in “ordered rows.” This
