At night, we slept almost naked and the temperature was thirty below. We were collecting corpses by the budreds every day"(Wiesel 70). Many things can contribute to your health being good or bad. People in the concentration camps didnt get any water which lead to dyhydration and hydration is deadly. They slept almost every night in temperatures below thirty degrees, they also slept naked with no blankets.

The Potato famine hit all social classes in Ireland but mostly the poor. The Government discouraged all parties into not planting potato’s there were little for poor family to eat.
The Holocaust is one of the most memorable tragedies known to this day. Many people are very uneducated to this day about what really happened during the Holocaust and how these people were treated. An estimated 6 million Jews were murdered during this time. Just that shows how brutal and heartless some people can be towards other human beings. Millions of Jews were treated extremely inhumane and were executed like animals.
Prisoner B-3087 In the book i read it starts off saying how Yanek has been taken to a prison by the nazis. He wakes up in his barracks he is fifteen years old. There was no cell phones he couldn 't call anyone and there was no escaping. Each day he would work and starve and if he was caught not working he would be killed. All of the other prisoners knew the rules.
The first stage of the Khmer Rouge regime was to send the 2 million cambodians to labor camps to work on farms where there wasn’t enough food, little medical attention and harsh working conditions (“Killing Fields”, 2008). They were forced out of their homes and forced on a long journey which showed to be dangerous for the very young and old, as many of them ended up dying along the way. Soon after many more died from starvation and random executions (Spangenburg and Moser 56-57). If you lived in Cambodia during that time, you would be sent to a labor camp without any choice, and without any information of where you were going. They didn’t give them any food when they were on a monthlong journey and many ended up starving.

Many prisoners faced hunger and boredom, and they hoped for better lives after the war. Halina Birenbaum was held captive in a prison camp in Poland at age thirteen.
Everyday I look at myself ashamed. Life here became intensely arduous. The other slaves and I work in hazardous conditions. We sleep on below freezing concrete floors, with scarcely any clothing to cover with. Dinner is served once every two days; half slice of bread and a couple beans.
Some things in life are difficult to understand without experience. The special bond between a father and son or the adrenaline felt running from elderly neighbors post broken window, and on a completely different level, the Holocaust. A whole religion placed on the chopping block as the scapegoat for a crippling country’s mistakes. WWI left Germany in an embarrassing situation after, debatably, being the root cause of the war. Respect and the high self esteem Germans held plummeted to an all time low.
His family started out very affluent, but once the communists invaded South Vietnam, everything was taken from them. Furthermore, my father went to school with ripped-up clothing and no food to eat. At one point, the shortage of food was so crucial that my dad had to eat horse food along with uncooked rice grains. As a child, he tried to learn as many subjects as he can, such as soccer, martial arts, guitar, and piano. In comparison, Anne Frank was forced to go into hiding and barely had any food to eat-while my father was lucky to be able to go outdoors and school.
Millions of Jews were murdered leaving a scar on the history of the human race. Yet, certain groups rose up against the cruel reign of Hitler to stand up for what is right. One such group, or better yet, country, was the United States of America, taking in almost twenty seven thousand Jewish refugees, and aiding
In Agnès Varda’s film The Gleaners and I, farmers are depicted throwing away thousands of pounds of edible potatoes because the supermarkets will not accept potatoes that are too small, too big, or too oddly shaped. In an interview with the farmers, Varda highlights that, regardless of the strange appearances, the potatoes are perfectly fine to eat (Varda 2000). Simply because the potatoes are not uniformly shaped, they are rejected by the supermarkets, and by extension the supermarkets’ customers, as undesirable and unsellable. In Mireille Roselo’s article “Agnès Varda’s Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse”, she criticizes the supermarkets for this, contending that the supermarkets “will only buy rigorously regular and millimetrically correct potatoes” (Rosello 3). Once again, the reverse is true.
