Firstly, the students need to aware of and understand the magnitude of the massacre. The lack of information could lead to many misconceptions. For example, in the Jim Keegstra case of 1985-1992, Keegstra was claimed to have taught students that, “an International Jewish Conspiracy is working to destroy Christianity and create a new world government based in Israel.” (Calgary Herald)These type of ideas can create confusion in young people’s minds and make them think that it never occurred. They should be taught the whole aspect and realize that not all German people were Nazis.
There is no doubt that many people have no clue as to what happened in the Holocaust time period. Every human being should know about the Holocaust, yet you would be surprised how much of the world’s population knows nothing about the Holocaust. The Midwest Center for Holocaust Education simply states, “Holocaust centers throughout the world dedicate themselves to bringing the truth of the Holocaust, it’s relevance,
The film adaptation of The Devil’s Arithmetic is a watered down version of the Holocaust that gives viewers a false perception of what life was like in the concentration camps. If society preserves history in an accurate way, there may not be another mass genocide such as the Holocaust. However, if media that is threaded with lies continue to be distributed, another Holocaust may be on the horizon. Society must never forget the Holocaust. Will future children even remember the Holocaust as it really
But it wasn’t the only one, and that's because people didn’t learn from the first time it happened. They didn’t learn from their mistakes, and it cost them even more lives and more hardships for others. Alos let's not forget about the biggest genocide that still goes on today, Slavery. It started off with African Americans, and soon spread to other races. Slavery has almost ended, but it still goes on everywhere in the entire world. That's just another reason we need to teach kids about the holocaust, but don't stop there. We need to teach them about all the genocide events that took place. They need to learn about the flaws of their world, so they can fix them. In conclusion, the holocaust should be taught in schools because, it teaches students about the thin line between good and evil, it was a major event of history in the 20th century, they should know the past early so they can prepare for the future, and it helps them deal with the world they live in
Do you think the holocaust could happen again? Do you think if people aren 't aware of history that it can repeat self? If people aren 't aware of what happened in the holocaust and how horrific it was, then people wouldn 't know what to do if it happened again and people wouldn 't know how to prevent it from happening again.This memoir points out the worst parts of a personal experience of Elie Wiesel, a holocaust survivor. The Holocaust was a horrific, terrifying experience for people of the jewish religion where over 5 million innocent people were killed. Elie Wiesel lived through tough times and watched his family get separated from him. He watches innocent people get killed and tortured. In the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel he uses dark imagery to create a sad and helpless tone to connect the reader with the pain he went through in the holocaust to ensure history doesn 't repeat itself.
The “Spiritual Resistors” did simple things such as maintaining their regular day to day schedule that they would’ve maintained outside the Ghetto. Some “Spiritual Resistors” simply still followed their own religious beliefs although they were specifically instructed NOT to do so. Although there is a distinct lack of significant spiritually resistant cases, this was by far the most peaceful form of resistance, and relatively unparalleled by other forms of resistance amongst Jews.
Through studying this tragic event, the dangers of racism and prejudice will be clear. At ages most students learn about the holocaust, they struggle with loyalty, conformity, peer pressure, and belonging. The Holocaust may help teach youth to be aware of how to navigate these pressures of society and be able to make the correct decisions however difficult that may be (Why teach The Holocaust?). Stories of specific people from The Holocaust can engage students into a great lesson that they can take into their daily lives (Why teach about The
In a span of 10 years, the Holocaust killed over 7 million people, that’s just as much as the population of Hong Kong. In the book Night, by Elie Wiesel, Wiesel shares his experience on how he survived the Holocaust and what he went through. How he dealt with the horrors and even to how he felt of his dad’s death and how he saw himself after it was all over. As he tried to publish it he was constantly turned down due to the fact of how horrid and truful it was. He still tried and tried until it was finally published. This book shows how the Holocaust should be taught and not be forgotten, due to it being a prime example of human impureness. Humans learn off trial and error, how the Jewish population was affected, decrease in moral, and the unsettled tension are prime examples of such mistakes.
People may know of the Holocaust, but not many know the specifics of this horrifying history. They know who was involved, how they were effected, and who was eventually killed. It’s time to show these victims respect, and learn their story. Studying the Holocaust is more than remembering the random facts; it’s learning from the atrocities and never repeating them again.
If students learn about the Holocaust, it can teach them to not oppress a group of people because they’re different. When kids learn about the Holocaust, they think it’s wrong and that it shouldn’t have happened.
The Holocaust now serves as a time to learn what can happen and how innocent people can be hurt over something that could have been avoid. It serves as a time to not repeat our mistakes. It shows us the consequences of the action of others. Most of all it’s initial to ask ourselves about the lessons we learn because even though we say that the Holocaust won’t ever occur again, it still is, all over the
The Holocaust was an unimaginable event in the past. Some people act like the Holocaust never existed because of how grim it was. People who survived the Holocaust will never forget their experience because they lost some of their family members. The
Seventy – six years ago the first killings of Jews began in Chelmo, Poland. Not even one hundred years have passed, and people are already forgetting how devastating it was, killing over six million Jews. Quotes from Night, by Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor himself, and facts and statistics illustrates how the Holocaust proves how cruel others can be, what happens when one man has too much power, and how fast humans resort to their basic instincts to survive, and that is why people should continue to learn about it.
“Human suffering anywhere concerns men and women everywhere.”(Ellie Weisel). The Holocaust is often a topic authors use to educate readers about the horrors that happened in our world over 70 years ago. However no matter how many years go by it is not only important that the victims are never forgotten but also the moral message is passed on from generation to generation. The Terrible Things, by Eve Bunting, and Child of the Holocaust, by Fred Gross, both depict the topic of the Holocaust but emphasize different evidence and information to create an overall message to the reader.
In history, events of genocide have occurred and humankind has fought to stop them. Such horrific events have occurred across the world; possibly the most horrific event of them all was the Holocaust. Hitler led a dictatorship throughout the entire country of Germany and during this time he had devised a strategy to take over Europe. While ruling his Nazi state and having a world war, Hitler had been running concentration camps secretly throughout his controlled territories. In the camps he had organized a method to systematically eliminate all races he viewed as inferior. Through these dark times and horrific events that occurred in the concentration camps, stories rose from them. These stories have told us of the events that occurred in
