Denial of the Holocaust is when someone completely disregards the facts of history and tries to deduce that the Holocaust never happened. Distortion of the Holocaust is slightly less severe, but still just as dishonorable, it is where they assume that the effects of the Holocaust were not as bad as they actually were. They consider that not as many people were murdered and that some of the documents from that era were forged is truthful. According to the USHMM you can spot denial if you hear this; 6 million Jewish people were never killed, Nazi’s had no intent to hurt the Jewish, or gas chambers never existed (Holocaust Denial par 7). As history shows these statements are very untrue and large sign of denial.
In order for it to be effective one must learn the tips and tricks of the veterans of the job, not just using knowledge from the seven weeks of training. Although that will be effective, I feel as if personal experiences are more efficient and useful in succeeding in the job. “You’re going to learn, CO, that some things they taught you in the Academy can get you killed.” (99) Conover realizes that many officers do not follow the rules that were instructed in the Academy. In order to be a strong and acknowledged correctional officer one must bend the rules a bit to get the inmates to comply.
When an actor was placed in as a teacher when another random person, the subject of the experiment was more likely to rebel when the actor rebelled. Overall, these factors show that while, more than half of the people were completely obedient to the scientist there is still hope that serious evil can be
In a time of war and evil with barely enough to survive, would you be able to help others and bring happiness? Even when you can barely be happy yourself, can you make others happy? In The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak, Liesel Meminger and others were able to do this. They are some of the few doing the right thing, even with how dangerous it is. The Nazis think they are doing the right thing themselves and think it is best for their people.
No one may have written what he wrote about and no one may have looked back like Lot’s wife, so they had to. It had to be because it was written and done by a human. The both of them had free will to do what they did, which is what God gives us. Both of their actions showed that they were human, which can be related to any issue in today’s society. Like Oscar Wilde’s quote on disobedience, “It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion.”
It does not make a criminal a better person, however, the chances are that either he will come out as a better person with regrets of his past or he will have a grouse against the society and come out as a person with revengeful feelings. No one is born a criminal; it is the society and certain conditions that compel a person to commit crimes. Punishments are given to criminals, aiming to reform them and turn them into good citizens. Inmates are placed in these isolation units for a number of reasons ranging from protecting the other prisoners, to providing justice. Solitary confinement prevents from any harm.
Hitler was not afraid to speak his mind and he said the words many Germans had without the courage to speak, until Hitler came along. He set off a chain reaction that could have been opposed by the German people, but wasn't. He represented Germany’s views and made them public, made the idea of
They brag about their many talents and accomplishments, leaving the person on the other end of the conversation feeling that worn out from listening to the same thing over and over again. Fortunately, there are people who do not excessively brag about their latest achievements. They simply know what they have done, and they leave it at that. Beowulf was most like the latter. In Beowulf, there was no evidence spotted that seemed to imply that Beowulf went around boasting about the monsters that he had killed and replaying the events over and over again until people had begun to wish that he had not scored a victory over the monsters.
According to the newer tragic hero rules Maximus could make the cut but to me the original rules are what are meant to go by and not making one of the mandatory rules makes him therefore not a tragic hero. Yes, he was noble, had a lot of integrity (fatal flaw), had it bad from the start, and died but he didn’t having a turning point where he finally decided he was going to change his actions because they were causing his misfortune. He was prideful and noble from beginning to end. Therefore, Maximus is not a tragic hero.
How did Hitler gain so much power over human beings? How did very few people have the courage to escape or avoid the concentration camps? This quarter we have read many text on the Holocaust and it survivors and their ability to escape the concentration camps. In the historical text read this quarter, they show many types of themes and lessons of the stories. The most important one has to be “bravery” because the stories shows how some people had the ability to escape Hitler and The Nazis.
The consequence was, that he often failed in the field, and rarely against an enemy in station, as at Boston and York. He was incapable of fear, meeting personal dangers with the calmest unconcern. Perhaps the strongest feature in his character was prudence, never acting until every circumstance, every consideration, was maturely weighed; refraining if he saw a doubt, but, when once decided, going through with his purpose, whatever obstacles
During the holocaust, chancellor Adolf Hitler and his many followers, the Nazis, killed over six million Jews. Hitler brainwashed many Germans into thinking that the holocaust would be the scapegoat for all of their problems. After Hitler wrote his book, Mein Kampf, which means “My Struggle” the German citizens began to be brainwashed into thinking that eliminating the Jews would be their best option for long term happiness. Hitler wasn’t the first to bring anti-semitism to the table. Hitler was very good at making people believe what he was saying was the best for everyone, take the Nazi’s for example.
Similarities between the Stanley Milgram, and Stanford prison experiment extend beyond the conventional commonalities of psychological experiments. The approach of setup were at extremes with one having a student teacher relationship, compared to that of a prisoner and a guard, but the results of human responses were unnervingly relatable with both teacher and guard, being in the superior position and allowing themselves to degrade the inferior to extremes of death. Psychologist Zimbardo may have compromised the legitimacy of his experiment with the inability to remove himself, as he admitted in his conclusion, to remain objective and from influencing the results, but the authenticity of the reactions were not compromised. The motivation, some of the interviewes claimed, was to have control of the situation. Whether control meant psychological harassment or not eating, everyone had an excuse that they were playing roles in an experiment to justify the drastic measures of manipulation taken
