Josef Mengele was a monstrous man, during his reign of terror at Auschwitz he conducted inhumane experiments, he executed people with indifference, and when the war finished Mengele evaded his pursuers for thirty-four years. Josef Mengele was born on March 16, 1911 as the eldest son to Karl and Walburga Mengele, Karl Mengele became prosperous from manufacturing farming supplies. Mengele attended the University of Munich and received his Ph.D in physical anthropology, two years later Mengele became the assistant of Dr. Otmar Von Verschuer. At the time,
Josef Mengele has always been recognized as a monster. He was an officer and a doctor at Auschwitz during World War II. Besides being known for being one of the men who decided who was sent to the gas chamber and who was allowed to live, Mengele is also widely known for his famous fascination with twins. Although Mengele has a reputation for being a heinous mistake for a human being, numerous accounts given by twins from Auschwitz say that he was an “angel” to them; they say that he protected and cared for them. Mengele caused the deaths of thousands of men, women, and children during the Holocaust, and although he may have protected the twins of Auschwitz, there is no mistaking him for anything but a murderous monster.
Elie Wiesel faced a lot of cruelty and a lot of inhumanity from man throughout his time in the concentration camps from other prisoners and the Nazis. In the memoir, Night by Elie Wiesel, cruelty and the theme of man’s inhumanity to man appears throughout the whole story and throughout Elie 's time within the concentration camps, in that it gives us examples of how the Nazis didn’t feed them enough, beat them, stripped them of their identities, made them run long distances, and how the Jew’s would be cruel to each other when they would take food from one another and beat others. One of the first examples of cruelty is from the Nazis towards Elie. The author wrote “Then I was aware of nothing but the strokes of the whip.
This quote is proving how Eliezer goes through dehumanizing actions while he was in Auschwitz. Eliezer does not have the choice whether he wants to remove his clothes or not. The Germans make a decision and that is what is expected to be done. If these tasks are not completed, the innocent Jewish people receive a punishment. These punishments dehumanize the Jewish people even more than what has already happened to them.
“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.
For instance, Holden Caulfield calls many people throughout the novel who he feels has selfish motives “phonies.” Equivalent to Holden, Wiesel feels the need to prevent people (the “phonies”) from forgetting the Holocaust. Holden rebels against respecting widely revered people and Wiesel rebels against the progressing society. However, Wiesel’s rebellious actions are less voluntary than those of Holden. Wiesel has a sense of responsibility for justifying the deaths of the Jewish people: “We had all taken an oath: ‘If, by some miracle, I emerge alive, I will devote my life to testifying on behalf of those whose shadow will fall on mine forever and ever.”
The people who suffered in the Holocaust were treated less than humans because of how they were horribly abused. The article states, “Gestapo interrogation methods included: repeated near drownings of a prisoner in a bathtub filled with ice-cold water; electric shocks by attaching wires to hands,feet,and ears,... and burning flesh with matches or a soldering iron.” (The Gestapo is Born ¶14). Therefore, the shown quote,shows that people were treated less than human because, they were being horribly treated in that it was a near death situation in their abuse. People during the Holocaust were treated less than humans which shouldn’t have happened.
Josef Mengele, a war hero and S.S. doctor at Auschwitz was the ringleader of gruesome experiments. From blood transfusions to injections and much more, twins who entered Auschwitz endured way more than any being should. What follows are the events leading up to Megele earning his title of the “ Angel of Death”. Mengele was a notorious enigma of the twentieth century. His appearance and calm demeanor did not express his great attraction to conduct such horrendous experiments.
He hated his creator to such a degree that he was willing to do anything to hurt him. The monster was right, however, in hating Victor because of Victor’s terrible treatment and disposition towards the monster. The first wrong that Victor committed was making the monster unbearably ugly. When he first creates the
This leads him to a selfish, evil
Grendel was always sinning by murdering every night. In lines 1-2 it backs up my stating of Grendel being evil it says “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, impatient.” Grendel was smart in many ways. One way Grendel was smart was because he knew when to strike. Grendel killed many of people undetected.
While reading this I felt the suspension and intensity of the story building. It made me think deeper about Josef and his past. How could someone that seems so nice be something so evil at one point? Everyone has had dark time in there life, but can someone so evil completely and fully become a better person? I wonder what happened in Josef’s past to make him so brain washed to the point where he believed that being a Nazi soldier was something he should do.
With this next killer, Carl Panzram, the researcher seemed unsure of what caused this killer to commit their crimes. The author states that Panzram is the hardest to study. While examining this killer, the author notes that his crimes began at the age of 8 and carried on throughout his entire free life. He raped, burned, and brutally beat men, women, and children. Because of these heinous crimes he was dubbed by the world as too evil to live.
For example, he mentions a ‘‘notorious’’ figure of the camp, being Dr. Mengele. This man is known for inhumane human experiments (such as mustard gas exposure for medical purposes), and was a reputable Schutzstaffel member. While Mengele is shown, other Schutzstaffel are often unknown; indeed, their proxy commanders are in the figure of Kapos. Throughout the Night passage, the “favoured” (in the way that they are kept healthier than the others, as seen in the selection) Kapos direct the other workers.
He manipulating anyone that spoke to him, with his empowering voice and attention demanding personality. I chose to write a paper on Charles Manson, because of his manipulation skills. He was able to select the weak ones from the strong and convince them that he was their lord and savior. To this day, Charles is known as one of the
