They must be “other” in our minds, in much the same way the men of the Reserve Battalion 101 needed to see the Jews they murdered as others. If others can be blamed, if the reader can placate themselves by believing these killers were somehow different, somehow inherently bad people, susceptible to great evil, then the reader does not have to look their own intrinsic nature. Other historians, including Daniel Goldhagen support this idea. He hypothesized that the perpetrators of the Holocaust were inherently anti-Semitic, that they were Nazified. Further, that the Holocaust was the result of these unusual circumstanced.

This book is very important because it teaches the reader things they didn’t know well or proves to them that they are wrong if they believed that the Holocaust was not harmful. No one had the right to treat these people in that way and no one has the right to ban this book because this will be censorship. Night also shows the truth about the Holocaust and teaches us that this period in history should be prevented from happening
Today’s world would describe laziness as not doing anything productive, whereas he saw lazy as being content with who you are and what you have. Being satisfied with yourself is incredibly important. Don't necessitate things that don’t involve you in the first place. In paragraph 8, Morley introduced an argument about the Germans. He claims “If the Germans had been as lazy, as indifferent, and as righteously laissez-fairish as their neighbors the world would have been spared a great deal.”.
In essence, in her work Arendt, specifically referring to the case of one of the main Holocaust organizers Otto Adolf Eichmann, writes that people who are directly involved in carrying out terrible crimes are not necessarily fanatics, but could be mere average people who bureaucratize even the most unspeakable atrocities under the premise that it is their duties to obey the orders of the state or any other likewise authority. Those people may actually not feel any specific negative emotions towards people who affected by their actions at all. The main drivers of their motivation to work is belief in their duties, job etc. The implications of the work however cruel it may be are thus disregarded. Arendt uses the term “banality of evil” to describe her this
The Nazi efforts did not begin with the mass genocide of Jews, that was just their end game. The Euthanasia Program served as a kind of dress rehearsal to the Final Solution. This gave the SS plenty of experience to efficiently gas and cremate Jews. Camps were first
Another example of an anti-hero is Adolf Hitler. Hitler was the leader of Germany during World War II; he led the Nazis to war and executed over 6 million Jews because of their religion. Some people considered him a hero because he executed the enemies of the German people, one of his mottos was “Strength lies not in defense but in attack. “(Hitler).This shows that he was not inspiring because heroes never try to show that fighting physically is the answer as it can cause a bigger problem and cause people to get hurt, yet Hitler believed that it was okay to fight proving he is not a hero. In addition, Hitler is not a hero because he killed 6 million innocent Jews just because of their race, which proved he was villainous, and a hero cannot be evil.
Having seen how Javert has served legally, attempted the best he could while under the government’s thumb, and even how he tried to stop Valjean under the false interpretation of what he stood for, we can see that Javert is in no way a villain. In fact, Les Miserable’s true villains are the horrible Thenardiers, as well as the corrupt government of the time. Both Valjean and Javert are stuck in a miscommunication loop of what is good and evil. Javert is not a villain in the novel, but rather a warning. Although all may seem grim, his silence did not solve anything around him.

The word “familiar” upholds a negative connotation due to its relationship with the negative topic of mass shootings, suggesting that mass shootings have become exceedingly customary which begs an ill-disposed emotional response. Brooks’ introductory statement, while short, presents an issue without having to provide facts, offering a vehicle in which he can go on to construct his argument
“Like many of the Jews believed, he didn’t think the hatred could last…” - Hans does not understand the reasons for the persecution of the Jews. He thinks all Jews are humans just as he is, and thinks they deserve the same respect as any other German deserves. 3. “It’s chaos out there, and chaos is what we need.” - Walter, part of the Nazi party, helped his Jewish friend Max escape from the Kristallnacht raids despite the risks.
Preston Abbe The Voting Rights Act and Texas Voter ID GOVT 2306-90 Voting rights in Texas has not always been accepted for all, but since Texas became a state of the United States of America in December of 1845, civil rights have evolved to become more universal for every citizen regardless of race or gender. Up until 1870, when the Fifteenth Amendment was ratified, slaves and “freedmen” were not allowed the privilege to cast a ballot. And not until the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified in 1920 were women allowed the right to vote. But even after the Fifteenth Amendment said “the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude” the states began to change their constitutions and
Hans Hubermann’s political ideology does not fall within “oppression” nor "tyranny.” In “The Accordionist” chapter, Death says Hans was “. . . not well-educated or political, but if nothing else, he was a man who appreciated fairness . . . A Jew had once saved his life and he couldn’t join a party that antagonized people in such a way . . . Like many of the Jews believed, he didn’t think the hatred could last, and it was a conscious decision not to follow Hitler” (Zusak 137).
When the United States Constitution was first written, it made sure that no one person could overthrow the other branches, convert to corrupt ways, and rule unjustly. The societies in Fahrenheit 451 and The Book Thief were not restricted in this way and therefore, the government figures became corrupt. The government in Fahrenheit 451 made the decision to ban all forms of media in fear of a rebellion. The governing figure in The Book Thief, Hitler, dehumanized Jews and other groups as his way of ruling. Although both of these leaders did not rule as they should, the immorality did not originate from an over-abundance of authority.
“It is more interesting that Ilse Koch had a lady’s handbag made from the same material.
