There were numerous attempts to make Louie and Miné feel invisible while they were in the internment and prisoner of war camps. One attempt was against Miné who, despite being a loyal citizen of the United States, was forced to live in an isolated internment camp. The article “The Life of Miné Okubo” states, “Finally, the presence of armed guards in the camps led to tragedy in a few cases when internees were killed for not obeying orders” (The Life of Miné Okubo, 5). Other Japanese Americans were killed for not obeying orders when they should not even be forced into camps. This instills much fear in Miné, as to be expected, making her feel even more invisible.
Cambodians were killed in mass numbers once they had reached the labor camps. They were killed because they were inefficient workers, they did not listen, or even if they were ill. This greatly reduced the cambodian population (Ngor 214). In Night, once Elie reaches the camp, a doctor named Dr. Mengele examines the physical condition of the prisoners’ bodies. He determines whether or not the prisoners would be capable of doing labor or if they were sick.
Union Army soldiers surrounded Garrett's farm. A union soldier named Boston Corbett shot John Wilkes Booth in the neck and killed him in the farm. During the investigation, many people were found guilty for having a part in the assassination. Mary Surratt, Lewis Powell George Atzerodt and John Herold were found guilty when they confessed that they either planned or had a big part in the assassination. Both of them were hanged in the prison yard of the Old Arsenal Petitionary.
In the memoir Night, the narrator Elie Wiesel recounts a moment when the ss officers were transporting all the prisoners from buna to another camp and whenever somebody couldn’t keep running the ss officers shoot them. “They had orders to shoot anyone who couldn’t sustain the peace”(Wiesel 85). The ss officers cruelty to the prisoners led them to give up, they stopped trying. If someone stopped and the officers didn’t noticed, he would probably die under the feet of all the people behind them. As the author describes his experiences, many other examples of inhumanity are revealed.
When they did not get better the village doctor, William Griggs, was brought to look at them. He then said “they are bewitched” and got nineteen men and women hung, one man was crushed to death, and seven others died in prison. This was all caused by the fear of the
The arousal theory also had a huge impact on Miklo. For instance, when he was taking over for Montana and he heard that one of the “BGA” members killed him, he went insane. His aggression towards the “BGA” group was intolerable because “La Onda” killed basically all of the members who were also in the prison with him. On the other hand, Cruz was really affected because he lost his brother to a drug overdose. Cruz blamed himself for his brothers loss and began drinking and doing more
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.
Can describe what a Death Camp was and what the conditions were like for prisoners Death camps were horrific places where undesirable were sent to die or work as slaves. Some were put in gas chambers on arrival, other were shot simply because a guard wanted to. Some dies of disease, most were worked to death or starved. They had to sleep in cramped places and only had one pair of clothes. There was one big bucket for waste that was filled with diseases.
The Native Americans had to be relocated to different land, so these Indians were forced to march the “Trail of Tears” in which approximately 4000 Indians were subject to fate’s hands and died, or were murdered due to being non-cooperative. Since Andrew Jackson decided to commit these immoral acts he gave himself a very bad reputation when it came to the indians and in doing this he allowed history to judge him and it’s not in a positive manner. Andrew Jackson made good and bad contributions, but in the eyes of many people including me the bad decisions or immorale ones outweigh the positive impacts he had as a president. It's very debatable whether Andrew Jackson was a good or bad president because of his public speaking and how the people loved him, since of his background and his ability to connect with the people of the United States, and all the bad he did to the Indians without even consideration of
Another thing he did was expose prisoners to phosphorus material from bombs to see how it reacted with skin. Overall these doctors did very terrible things too camp prisoners and were later convicted at the Numberg trials where most of them were sentenced to death. Dr. Mengle fled to south america and was unfortunately never caught. All of these experiments and doctors caused many innocent people to die. This was a very unfortunate event and may the lives of those who died be
Out of those 45,000 soldiers , 13,000 died from disease , poor living conditions , starvation , overcrowding , or exposure to harsh weather conditions. The building is surrounded by pine logs aligned in a vertical position , making them taller and harder to escape. Henry Wirz was the one in charge. What he said goes. Henry was hanged after an unfair trial on conspiracy and murder relating to the prison.
