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.
One...Two…, he counted.” (Weisel 65), which shows us how the Nazi’s would beat the Jewish people within the concentration camps.

This was very cruel in that Idek punished Elie for knowing something that he knew about, but should not have
The sensation and pain of being called a number is far more demeaning. The fact that S.S. officers could discount the essential human quality that we all possess -names- and replace it with something so cold and impersonal such as an identification number made the dehumanization process simple. What were people without names? In the Nazis minds they were superficial beings, without names in a camp, therefore they deserved any barbaric treatment thrown their way. To Hitler, the fact that Jews could potentially be broken this promptly proved he was in a step into the right direction at dehumanizing and eliminating the Jewish
Elie Wiesel said "combat indifference, intolerance and injustice¨(Biography 2). When Cesar Chavez stood up for what is right just because the Hispanics had different skin color or came from a different place doesn 't mean they should get treated unfairly and the holocaust did bad things to innocent people because they had different faiths. Chavez is standing up for what is right and making a strike how people were put in the camps in the Holocaust what the similarities are between them what the differences are between them conclusively about the holocaust and Chavez.

When they first go their they saw the smoke coming from the chimneys and the smelling of burning flesh. A lot of their human rights were violated.

Throughout the book, with the nazis ultimate goal is to break the jews and make dehumanize them and if anything, their goal is take and diminish their belief. The torturing and suffering caused is what widdles down the belief, and this present throughout the novel. Only the strong and the ones who have most faith would survive, yet at the same time, if they didn’t originally have faith, they could’ve avoided the concentration camps
Why was this permitted? Wiesel pinpoints the indifference of humans as the real enemy, causing further suffering and lost to those already in peril. Wiesel commenced the speech with an interesting attention getter: a story about a young Jewish from a small town that was at the end of war liberated from Nazi rule by American soldiers. This young boy was in fact himself. The first-hand experience of cruelty gave him credibility in discussing the dangers of indifference; he was a victim himself.
Shakespeare wrote, “Caesar, now be still. I killed thee not with half so good a will (Shakespeare V.v.50-51). Brutus has finally began to notice that the decisions he made created bad outcomes. Brutus accepts his own death because he made this his punishment for the bad destruction that he caused to occur in Rome. Brutus said, “I know my hour hath come” (Shakespeare V.v.20).
In the book The Sunflower the young S.S Karl asked Simon for forgiveness for his inhumanity to other people. Simon Wiesenthal could not forgive him for something he had done to someone else. (The Sunflower) How could I forgive someone or a whole country for doing something to someone else when it was not done to me? Simon Wiesenthal and Sven Alkalaj both agree that you cannot forgive someone for something they did to someone else (The sunflower, Sven Alkalaj). Both Simon and Sven have experienced the inhumanity that a whole country can cause.
For others, living another day is a good thing, but there are people out there who sees this as a curse, a reason to mourn, and honestly who can blame them? With the cruelty of this world and the impeccable pressure of life, I will not be surprised if we all just kill ourselves, but we should not, because killing ourselves does not solve anything, in fact it can make things worse. We were all brought up with the notion that the act of suicide is wrong, yet there are still thousands who kill themselves every year, ending their lives forever. I am here to tell you that this has to stop and here are the reasons why. First, suicide defeats the purpose of life.
