There, I was amazed at how symbolic the exhibit was. For example, In one of Daniel’s diary entries about how his family had to move into the ghettos, the air was very cold and the paintings on the wall were dark, to symbolize how the Jews had lost so much in the Holocaust. This was a very powerful experience for me, as it made me realize how brutal the Holocaust was. In the end of the tour, I saw the memorial they had constructed. In it there were benches around a fire that underneath it, contained earth that had been gathered from death camps, concentration camps, and ghettos.
People need to remember the boxcars and the conditions that the Jews had to face on them. Donna Dietch may say that the boxcars were unnecessary and would take to much time in the movie. However, this is wrong because when the boxcar made its first stop the novel states, “That is when they discovered that three old women had died and a fourth was near dead.” The boxcars were a cause of death to many Jews in the holocaust. It is important that society remembers everyone who died in the Holocaust, not just in the concentration camps. Additionally, the
Representation Over Education It is in human nature to make assumptions on a topic without understanding the full meaning. Not all of us are experts in Native American culture, but we have all been brainwashed to believe the same things: That they are uneducated savages who have no purpose. This is just one of many examples that which popular culture shapes the way that we view others. We all want to belong
Modern society adapts to the views its people holds, which can explain why it seems so divided nowadays. It is as if no one can ever agree on anything. As a country, we are struggling to differ from right or wrong, keeping us on opposite sides. We have different views on everything, from how much gun control there should be to whether immigrants should be allowed and even what classifies as racism. Regarding culture and race, there are many instances which are offensive to some but brushed off by others.
Restricted Throughout time, society has discriminated people who we view as different. As a society, we have created a box that people must fit into to be viewed as “perfect”, yet we don’t alter our box to our nation's needs. As a society, we have made the choice of segregating people because of their race and forgetting that we are all the same, we are all human. Correspondingly, in The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, two families have a prolonged feud between each other which leads to their children's deaths. These acts of discrimination result in suicide and segregation.
The Holocaust affects Jews in a way that seems unimaginable, and most of these effects seem to have been universal experiences; however, in the matter of faith, Jews in the concentration camp described in Elie Wiesel’s Night are affected differently and at different rates. The main character, Elie, loses his faith quickly after the sights he witnesses (as well as many others); other Jews hold on much longer and still pray in the face of total destruction. In the beginning, all of the Jews are more or less equally faithful in their God and religion. Elie was perhaps one of the most faithful, saying that “by day [he] studied Talmud and by night [he] would run to the synagogue to weep over the destruction of the temple” (3). He finds comfort in
Native Americans and Popular Stereotypes Stereotyping others is a huge problem in society today, and Native Americans are no exception to this problem. According to Shusta et al., (p. 230, 2015) many people in the United States sense that Native Americans were not treated with dignity in U.S. history, but many are not aware of the extent of current societal prejudices against them. Native Americans are referred to as many offensive names such as: chief, buck, squaw, redskin, Indian brave, and skins (Shusta, et al., p. 238, 2015). Shusta et al., (p. 238, 2015) also states that using common terms such as sitting Indian style, Indian giver, wild Indian, powwow, and bottom of the totem pole are offensive to Native Americans. Native Americans
Elie’s Loss of Faith Within this barbarous world, there are innumerable accounts of devastating events that have occurred in the past, and continue to occur; these occurrences periodically cause us to question the existence of God. Overall, this statement proves to be correct to ill-fated Eliezer Wiesel. This brave child was exceedingly religious, as well as he had a strong hunger to be closer with God. Previous to being transferred to Auschwitz, he believed that as long as his family stuck together, everything would work out to be well. Throughout all his time in the concentration camp, he started to lose his faith after discovering the horrid ways of the camp.
Racism in a part of our life is subtly dehumanizing the people of the earth and divides the nation into parts that can tore down the core of humanization. All these acts has been let down from generation to generation where we are brainwashed and taught to think in certain directions. The superiority of certain races in work field area has create barriers between employer, employee, colleagues and clients based on races, which includes the attitude, bias, communication, and media stereotyping which certain races and sometimes religion have to embrace in order to survive in these millennial
Seeing my teacher (Mr Joe Webster) the most inspirational person I know break down and cry, along with many of my peers was a life changing experience like coming to Count Me In. I have tried to capture the pain my school community has felt in this message, but I don't think I ever could adequately describe this school's
All in all, you have to negotiate and come to the best most logical solution to keep everyone from killing each other. Everyone has their own opinions and views, but personally I believe that, the reason so many individuals believe that the flag is used as a symbol of hatred/ racism is because that’s what they have been taught and told their entire lives. History isn’t black and white, there are so many things that NO ONE knows the actual full blown truth behind. But instead of assuming and acting like we were there and know exactly what happened, maybe we should research and actually learn our history instead of turning nothing into something and causing more problems. Finally, no I do not believe that the flag is a symbol of hatred or racism, but I do believe that some individuals do believe that, that’s what the whole history of the flag is based on.
“… that the world did know and remain silent.” (Wiesel’s Speech). The Holocaust is still a big event that is still known to this day, many people did know about the Holocaust was happening but chose to remain silent and see millions of people suffer, the world’s humanity needs a pause to rethink of their kindness. Like Wiesel and the most of the prisoners, they questioned the existence of God in their lives and on the world. “I was the accuser, God the accused. My eyes were open and I was alone – terribly alone in a world without God and without man.” (Wiesel 65).
What Caused the Civil War People everywhere of every nation and of every color have lives different from one another. People don 't like change in their lives and when something is changed that fight to see it back to what it was before. The Civil War started for many reasons ,but there are are two reasons that stick out to me. One reason why the civil war started was slave moral and another reason why the Civil War started was the nationhood of the state. Causes means a person or thing giving rise to an action or condition One reason why the civil war started was the nationhood of the country.
