An estimated twenty five percent of the Cambodian population died because of the beliefs of the Khmer Rouge. Many dies because of harsh labor camp conditions and malnutrition (Krkljes). In Night, Elie describes the scene in the shed when they are taking a small break from marching. He says there are many dead corpses on the ground just laying there. “After trampling over many bodies and corpses, we succeeded in getting inside.”
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
The first stage of the Khmer Rouge regime was to send the 2 million cambodians to labor camps to work on farms where there wasn’t enough food, little medical attention and harsh working conditions (“Killing Fields”, 2008). They were forced out of their homes and forced on a long journey which showed to be dangerous for the very young and old, as many of them ended up dying along the way. Soon after many more died from starvation and random executions (Spangenburg and Moser 56-57). If you lived in Cambodia during that time, you would be sent to a labor camp without any choice, and without any information of where you were going. They didn’t give them any food when they were on a monthlong journey and many ended up starving.
Andrew Johnson’s impeachment trial was not justified because of the unconstitutionality of the Tenure of Office Act and the extreme biases of the radicals in the Republican Party. When current President Abraham Lincoln was running for reelection in 1864, he decided not to select Hannibal Hamlin as his vice president. Instead, Andrew Johnson was chosen because he was a man who was from a different political party who could help him restore the Union. While running in 1864, Lincoln and Johnson ran under the party name of the National Union to broaden their appeal.
In the Holocaust many Jews died because of malnutrition and diseases. They Jews went through severe conditions by marching with many hours without rest. At the end of the memoir it says, “From the depths of the mirror, a corpse gazed back at me”(119). This quote means he was so skinny and all he could see of himself was his bones. This shows how the Nazis treated Elie and the other Jews with hunger and how they did not get any food.
Hours in the stockyards were awfully long and had excruciating temperature circumstances. Workdays were ten to twelve hours and were from Monday to Saturday. The hot, summer weather caused temperatures inside the packing plants to get scorching. This was partly due to poor ventilation. In contrast, during the winter, it became freezing because there was a lack of insulation ("Slaughterhouse to the World" 5).
One of the biggest mass deaths was during the run to another camp. Nearing the end of the run Elie observed, “Death hardly needed their help. The cold was conscientiously doing its work” (92). During their run the Gestapo would shoot and kill anyone who fell behind. But as Elie realized people would drop like flies due to thirst, hunger, and most of all, cold.
Abraham Lincoln's assassination was not justified because he freed slaves and he was a great leader. Abraham Lincoln’s assassination was unjustified because he freed slaves. In 1863 Abraham makes his final proclamation frees slaves. At the end of the war he officially ended slavery in America.
The lack of food is the reason so many colonists died of hunger. The second reason to why so many colonists died was because of occupations. There were too many gentleman in May 1607 and January 1608 that did not want to do any work at all. One surgeon in 1607 and 1608 was not good.
World War two was an awful time for everyone. People died and went through tough times. One place that was also awful and where millions of Jews were killed was concentration camps. Concentration camps first came around after Hitler was elected as Chancellor. In the camps there wasn 't a lot of food or water so people, mostly died of starvation and dehydration.
The constitution of the United States is justifiably built just as much for war as it is for peace. This can be seen during 1861, the midst of the Civil War, when Abraham Lincoln was faced with national security challenges that no American president had been confronted with before. Lincoln was put in a position that required him to walk a fine line between civil liberties and national securities. Some argue that Lincoln is one of the top presidents this nation has seen, yet others argue that the action to suspend habeas corpus eradicated him from that pedestal. Since the peak of the Civil War, historians have dissected and debated president Lincoln’s decision.
In July 1862, Lincoln educated his bureau that he would issue a liberation announcement however that it would absolved the supposed fringe states, which had slaveholders yet stayed faithful to the Union. His bureau convinced him not to make the declaration until after a Union triumph. Lincoln's chance came taking after the Union win at the Battle of Antietam in September 1862. On September 22, the president reported that slaves in regions still in disobedience inside 100 days would be free.
Throughout the establishment of the United States, there have been 44 presidents whom the people elected. A particular number of these terms have been deemed as “legendary” from the accomplishment of the president and his overall impact on American society. From these presidents, the 16th has shown to be the embodiment of this legendary status. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, has achieved many accolades in his lifetime. He was our president during the Civil War, which was one of the bloodiest in history.
- In the early morning of April 21st, 1865, a train draped with black cloth slowly arrived in Washington. In the second to last car of the train rode the body of America's first assassinated president, Abraham Lincoln. Over the next 17 days, the funeral train would ride its way across the country. Millions paused to stand by railroad sightings, or they would file past his open casket to glimpse at the president's face. Lincoln was an authentic hero who's bigger than war, and almost bigger than America by the time he died.
