The Holocaust is a horrific event that very much could have been prevented, but only a handful of people tried to prevent it. If they hid Jews, if they gave Jews food and water, if they saved merely one Jew, they changed history. They showed the Nazis and Hitler that they could never win. Irena Sendler was apart of that handful of people. She saved 2,500 children from torture and death and risked her life everyday to do it.
What 's better, losing one brother, or losing two brothers because one of them can 't live without the another. You know what they say right, “walk a mile in someone else 's shoes”. If you were in their shoes, how would you feel if lost two brothers in a day. The third reason is that you are a hero, you saved many kids. If it weren 't for you Johnny and Ponyboy, those kids would 've died in that church.
Bravery is performed everyday by many people, and it has played a big part in World War 2. World War 2 was a horrible time for the Jews due to the Germans and Adolf Hitler. In order for the Jews to survive, they had to trust their faith and do the unthinkable. They had to give up their children to other people knowing that they might not see them again. They needed to act brave for their families and ensure they had solace.
He liked the fact that he could talk to people in the concentration camps without feeling out of place or feeling uncomfortable. Erich did not think that living with strangers was the worst thing ever, but becoming friends with strangers that might die at any moment was the hardest thing for Erich.
The Holocaust is a contemporary issue. Holocaust survivor testimonials are vital to today’s society because they suffered and atrocity and it is important to educate people of what happened first hand. To begin with, the Holocaust is a contemporary issue because it demonstrates the atmosphere in which genocide can take place.These people had to endure prejudices which were illogical and unfair. Anti semitism remains in our society to an extent. It is therefore important to remember the Holocaust because it is an example of how these trends could evolve into something far more threatening.

The viewers of this movie were made to care about what happened to the main character, Guido, before he was even sent to the work camp. Night, though, is a better resource because it provides a heaviness that Life Is Beautiful does not give. Life Is Beautiful would not truly have an impact on the students without Night as background. Understanding the Holocaust is important because we don’t want to repeat history. While genocides are still happening, warning signs are more prominent due to the Holocaust.
In the book, The Cage Riva once said, "But we need much more than laughter to make us well. It does not cure tuberculosis or put calcium back into my bones." The Cage to bring us back to the dark times of the holocaust he also makes us believe that in the darkest times there is still hope to move on. Even when they take all you love and something you have affection for all go away, but there is still hope to live for no matter what times you are going through. One of those things is family and that is important because they could take everything you love and all your personal belongings but you still have a family which is more important than anything, like Riva said “But we cannot let the Nazis destroy our minds.
With his first wife Anja, he is undoubtedly kind, compassionate, and wealthy. Art Spiegelman shows his father’s personality changes and the complexity of his character throughout the two books. Vladek Spiegelman is seen as a survivor and a hero by many people, although he doesn 't always think of himself that way. If one was to survive the Nazi Regime, they would probably be considered a hero. Artie, Francoise, the reader, and many of Vladek’s friends or acquaintances see him that way, but why can 't Vladek see himself as the hero that most see him as?
Some may react with the point that taking part in passive resistance could have prolonged your life. However, a prolonged life would also mean prolonged suffering so it would be illogical to die waiting than to do something yourself and fight for your people. For example in WW2, many knew there was a high possibility of death when fighting battles such as D-Day, but they chose to heroically make a difference and sacrifice their life for a cause they strongly believed
The Museum of Tolerance, also known as The Jewish Documentation Center, is important for people to remember because it holds very important information and events that were held during the Holocaust.

It was either live or die. It was difficult to survive by the end of the Holocaust. Luckily, Elie Wiesel was one of the people to be a survivor. The women went to the right and the men went to the left. He got split up from his mother and sisters, but stayed with his father.
This excerpt is relevant to Wiesel’s biggest fear which is that the world has not learned or has simply forgotten about the Holocaust. The line “Never shall I forget…” (Wiesel, 34) is reiterated to show how important remembering is to Wiesel. This also pertains to Wiesel 's “big idea” which is that his purpose for writing Night was to never let anyone forget about the Holocaust. He hopes that this memoir helps prevent another genocide like this, and helps motivate people to stand up to injustices. In this selection, Wiesel uses phrases such as “.. flames that consumed my faith forever” (Wiesel, 34), “... murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes.” (Wiesel, 34), and “Never shall I forget those things..” (Wiesel, 34).
Feelings and thoughts went through my mind as I read about Wiesel’s experience as a German prisoner. I thought he was really brave and everything was just unfortunate for him because it was also hard for himself to live but with that, he had to help his father too in order to save him. If I could talk to him about this time in his life, I would ask him if he would have given up sooner if his father died earlier. I would want him to explain about some inconsiderate things that he has thought about his father as they were on the camp.

Not to anyone...."(72) This means that the Top SS officers are telling the minor officers to say do not worry to the prisoners but it is not true.
