We feel that the Holocaust is a horrifying event in human history because so many people died. The Holocaust is important because it allows us to see how terrifying it was and to make sure that something similar to it will not happen again. It is also important because we want to remember all the victims of it. Even before Hitler’s rise to
There are countless ways to confront denial but there area few specific ways to stop it that will make the biggest impact. First of all you can research the Holocaust and find facts to prove that deniers are wrong, then you can share the truth with any deniers that may come your way (par 8). Finally you must always remember that no matter what happens you should stand up to people that are denying the Holocaust, or even just making a hateful statement aimed towards others(par 8), because if we just sit around letting these words be said we are going to be allowing hate for not just the Jewish but many other religions and cultures into our society. We do not need more hate because it is a very powerful emotion and we already have too much of it, adding more is just going to cause history to repeat
Where the Jews had lived and how they had lived were a big part of the Holocaust. The Holocaust was an important time in history to learn about because issues like what happened then still happen just not as torturous. It helps to understand what happens in different countries just because of your religion. Many people today get killed for having a different religion. At the end of the book Night by Elie Wiesel shows that even though you can be put through the worst time in your life, you don’t only have to think about
This book should not be banned even though it portrays so many violent moments because it shows us the horrible reality of racial prejudice and discrimination. The Jews had to go through terrible things. For example, Elie “didn’t know that this was the moment in time
Elie, once so faithful, is one of the first to lose faith in God due to the horrific sights he sees. After witnessing the bodies of Jewish children being burned, Wiesel writes, “Never shall I forget those flames that consumed my faith forever” (34). He quite understandably has begun to doubt that his God is with him following the sight of the supposedly chosen people’s bodies being unceremoniously burned. Elie, though, was perhaps not a member of the masses with this belief; in fact, some men were able to hold on to their beliefs despite these horrendous sights. Also near the middle of the book, Wiesel reflects on the faith of other Jews in the face of these events, saying that “some of the men spoke of God: His mysterious ways, the sins of the Jewish people, and the redemption to come.
Students should be taught about the Holocaust because if no one taught it the history would be lost in the generations and future children or adults would never know such a thing happened, it has many benefits for students, and many adults agree that it should be taught. What is the Holocaust? The word holocaust was historically used for burning on an alter. It now means the mass murder of 6 million Jews. The transportation to death camps started in late 1941.
It is extremely important that people of all ages are informed of the millions of innocent people that died due to one man’s despise towards them. Therefore, people are able to see how severe discrimination, intolerance, and racism can affect people, families, and even entire nations. If history does repeat itself, it is best people do all they can to learn about the Holocaust in order to prevent another mass genocide based off of hatred in the
Analyzations of Stylistic Techniques Imagine the pain of being separated from your family. The pain of losing your home. The pain of losing all hope in humanity. As Elie Weisel steps up to begin his speech, 4,817 miles away children in Kosovo felt that pain; this was a pain that Weisel was able to relate to. As a survivor of the holocaust losing his family and home was not something new.
Argument and Thesis Elie Wiesel’s thesis in Night throughout the book is about faith and God. At the beginning of the book Wiesel is devoted to his Jewish religion and his God. Throughout the book as Eliezer Wiesel sees horrible things constantly happening, he begins to doubt God and question him. “But why should I bless Him?” (64). Eliezer couldn’t understand why God would let such horrible things that he faced during the holocaust happen.
Many Holocaust survivors, like Solomon Radasky, have lost their lives to the Nazis and died trying to live each day during the Holocaust. Solomon Radasky cared about surviving in the camps because he wanted to survive, even though it seemed impossible for others. Solomon has shown that he had the will to work and take abuse in the camps in order to live the next day. To repeat what I’ve said, I have learned, by doing this report on Solomon Radasky, to be grateful for the life that I have right
