The Camp In total, 6 million people died in the Holocaust; 1.5 million of them died at the Auschwitz concentration camp. The Holocaust created a great deal of controversy all over the world and in turn, changed people’s opinions of Jewish people and Germans. The Auschwitz concentration camp imprisoned millions of Jewish people who didn’t know what their next day would entail. Deindividuation and social polarization was seen all throughout the Holocaust but in this case, Auschwitz itself. Hitler was the ruthless leader of the Holocaust. He had plans of how he was going to overthrow the country and,” By 1934 Hitler was in absolute control of Germany, and his campaign against the Jews in full swing,” but the people were unaware of his intentions (“Holocaust”). He intended to kill Jewish people because himself and the Nazis believed that,”...the Jews were responsible for huge events like losing World War One and the economic crisis,” which happens to be incorrect but so many people believed them (“Why”). Because of his reasons, he wanted to imprison Jewish people. First, he made all Jews wear the yellow star, which was discriminatory and others did not even see them as people anymore. Next, they would be sent off to the extermination camps or concentration …show more content…
In The Crucible, Abigail Williams is the leader of the group of girls that took on the roll as witches. Similarly, Hitler is the man who created the Nazi party and they took on the roll as executors. This idea exemplifies deindividuation. Abigail and Hitler were both very powerful leaders and that is how they got their followers to do what they wanted. Regardless of their intentions, they managed to keep control of their people. Abigail Williams claimed to have relations with the devil which was against the town’s rules, while during the Holocaust, Nazis portrayed actions that were so cruel and against the social
When rising to power Hitler sees the Jewish people as the enemy race. As a result, he plans to exterminate every last one of them. Wicked men of his Nazi army captured Jews, then changed them profoundly; they took away
The Crucible’s Abigail Williams is best known for her involvement in the Salem Witch Trials just as Senator Joseph McCarthy is best known for his involvement in the Red Scare. Abigail Williams was known in her society as a saint. She had supposedly committed some form of witchcraft and had redeemed herself by giving the names of other “witches”. She, and several other girls, were largely responsible for the conviction and deaths of nineteen innocent villagers. Abigail and McCarthy both had caused mass hysteria in their communities in order to draw attention to themselves, further their reputations, and to get rid of people they saw unfit to live in their society.
The Ring Leader The Crucible written by Arthur Miller has a variety of characters, one of the more dominant characters, named Abigail Williams, was behind a series of unfortunate events. Abigail lied on numerous occasions, manipulated others, and sent many to their deaths. Abigail’s important character traits were being dishonest, manipulating others, and having a bold attitude.
In the play, The Crucible, a story told where the reader learns about lies, deceit, and hypocrisy. The play highlights how the puritans viewed witch trials in 1692. The character that was the most to blame for the Salem Witch trials and dreadful hangings, is Abigail Williams. There are two reasons Abigail Williams became the cause of all the Witch trials and hangings, the first being that she refused to admit to what she was doing in the forest with the other girls, the second was that she was resentful of the Proctor family.
The Nazi regime killed about six million jews during the holocaust. During the 1940s German authorities targeted Jew and many other people, they would be put in death camps and forced to do hard labored. The atrocities the Jewish people had to face was terrifying. Going day after day not knowing if you will be the one selected to die;having your love ones die and suffer. Doing hard labor and very little food.
The Holocaust was a horrible tragedy in which the germans caused near 6 million Jewish casualties. It was an attempt of mass genocide, from Hitler’s perspective he was cleansing the world of inferior peoples. At first he attempted to deport the Jews. Soon, countries refused to accept them. Then to contain them and use them for labor.
Abigail Williams and the girls is responsible for the deaths of the people who were wrongly convicted and hanged. Also Danforth has some of the blame for this situation as well. However, the girls are the ones who started this situation because the book explains, “Mr. Parris said, “That my daughter and my niece I discovered dancing like heathen in the forest,” (6). In Salem, the rules are to not go through the woods and dances. Now people think that they are doing witchcraft.
Abigail single-handedly destroyed the Proctor’s relationship as husband and wife and let innocent people hang from crimes they did not commit. The Salem witchcraft trials that took place around that time is why America’s judiciary system is like how it is today. One’s actions and words can ultimately change the way the government rules in the court forever. These policies that are now intact today are all because of Abigail Williams, the character in the play, The Crucible, which is based on a true
Abigail Williams is not your typical teenage girl. She is a girl that will drink blood to kill someone, accuse people of witchcraft, and have a affair. By looking at The Crucible, one can see that Abigail Williams develops the theme of reputation, which is important because people who fear losing their reputation spread hysteria. Protecting her reputation motivates Abigail Williams to accuse others of being a witch.
Up to 6 million Jewish people died during the Holocaust. In 1933 Adolf Hitler became the leader of Germany's military, and formed an army called the Nazi. The Holocaust was a huge mass murder during the time of World War II. Hitler and his army put together the Holocaust in 1941 through 1945. Hitler had dozens of camps in Germany, the biggest one was Auschwits, where millions of people have died.
Through harsh rejection and preposterous delusions, Abigail Williams abused her good name and became the fault for the bitter ends of many for something they were not guilty of. I have reread significant sections of The Crucible several times and have read and analyzed it to the best of my ability on multiple occasions. Once reading this book in my Honors English Course at the number one high school in the state of California, we carefully analyzed the characters, going as far as even making character charts, to understand them and their intentions much better. Abigail WIlliams, who is at fault for the Salem Witch Trials, held verbal power and influence over the girls which led to the sentenced hanging of many, and acted unwisely on the galling
Abigail first commits adultery with Elizabeth Proctor’s husband John Proctor. Later on, she accuses people of doing witchcraft which causes their life. Abigail Williams uses the Salem Witch Trials to put out all the resentment she has towards everyone. From this broad accusation, it shows how weak the human beings really are, and how greediness and to want for personal gaining. Many people die in the village after a series of lies and unjust practices.
The crucible is a play based on a historical event that happened approximately 3 centuries ago. This plays talks about a small village (Salem) in Massachusetts that confronted a horrible event, witchcraft. Hysteria invaded people´s mind causing chaos around the village; their Puritan beliefs obligated them to do horrible things even if they did not wanted. Many people were condemned to prison, while others were hanged; the only way to save their souls was to confess their acts. Trials were made to many people that “supposedly” committed witchcraft; but, these trials were unfair.
Was Hitler a Ruthless tyrant, masterful tactician, or a cowardly leader? The Holocaust was the systematic persecution and murder of around six million Jews by Hitler and the Nazi party. First the Jews were first regularly transported by trains to extermination camps, there were killed in gas chambers. This continued until April–May 1945.
Abigail Williams is a bad person who has made good decisions. Abigail lies right to her uncle at the beginning about dancing in the forest. Also she had drank blood to kill John Proctors wife, Elizabeth Proctor. Commit to adultery with John. She is a good person also but her past affected her in many ways.
