but, they wouldn’t have done what they did if it wasn’t for Hitler. Hitler brainwashed everyone by using propaganda, and caused the hate towards Jews. Diction Throughout most of the book Irene used a lot of figurative language. Figurative language gives a clearer vision of what is happening in the book.
Surviving the Holocaust can quickly change someone's outlook on life. The author, Mark Jacoby, wrote "The Tree I Sprang From '' from his father's experience at Auschwitz during the Holocaust. Jacoby described his father as loving, gentle, and caring, but the cruel treatment at Auschwitz made him grateful for everyday necessities such as food. If you just met Mark Jacoby's father you would not even believe he went through horrid treatment.
Nazi Dr. Joseph Mengele is guilty of committing crimes against humanity. The article “Auschwitz Survivors Recall Horror Of Nazi Experiment” by Jonathan Broder helps to demonstrate the malicious crimes of Dr. Mengele and does this by using logos in his article. He also shows it through the point of view of many of the victims and witnesses of Dr. Mengele. The memoir Night by Elie Wiesel also depicts the evils of Dr. Mengele. Dr. Mengele is accused of many horrible incidents that occurred during the holocaust.
Reiner was not living at the time that World War I began and ended. Reiner’s mother witnessed those hard times and saw how battle affected Germany as a whole. Germany had to surrender in order for the killings to cease, so that destroyed Germany’s pride, as well as a loss of a bunch of merchandise and land to the Allies. Growing up during the Holocaust would honestly scar me for life, especially if I were a Jew. Living in the American South during Jim Crow segregation would have opened my eyes at an earlier age when it comes to racism, because the subject would be right in front of me.
In the documentary, One Survivor Remembers, Gerda Weissmann recalls her miraculous survival of the Nazi concentration camps. Throughout her survival, Gerda Weissman shows personality traits of courage, perseverance, and compassion. When Gerda Weissmann was fifteen years old Germany seized control over Poland and all Jewish Poles were confined to small living quarters of their houses. Gerda Weissmann’s ability to keep calm and go on living in that situation showed true bravery because a girl her age would surely panic and develop a negative personality. Gerda Weissmann is possibly most courageous when she separated from her family and has to go to Dulag transit camp, while the rest of her family is sent to Auschwitz.
She had torn apart relationships, families, and the entire town was against itself. With each new day came a fresh accusation about somebody who had been writing the letters. Mrs. Strangeworth caused it all. Mrs. Strangeworth truly was an evil woman, she had not committed any sort of crime, but she caused families to turn against each other and friendships and relationships to deteriorate. This is truly an evil deed as it has the potential to take the value out of somebodies lives.
The Auschwitz Volunteer: Beyond Bravery, was an original Auschwitz Report which was translated from Polish to English by Jarek Garliński. The author of the report was Auschwitz prisoner 4859 also known as Captain Witold Pilecki. Pilecki was a soldier of the Second Polish Republic, founder of the Secret Polish Army a resistance group in Poland and was a member of the underground home. Pilecki was also an author of Witold’s Report which was a report about the German concentration camp, Auschwitz. In September of 1940, at the age of 39, Captain Witold Pilecki walked into a German roundup in Warsaw with the goal of going to Auschwitz and infiltrating the camp.
During the holocaust there were tons of horrible things going on, but there were still a few people who tried to make things better. In this research essay I am going to talk about the heroes that really caught my eye by the things they’ve done to try and make things better. Irene was born in Poland into a Catholic family. She hid in the forest until she was found by a Russian Solider who had raped and beaten her. Rugemer liked her so much that she later became his house keeper.
One example of how Ruth’s sorrow is shown to the reader is early in the story when the narrator introduces Ruth, saying that “Ruth’s arm, linked with Matt’s tightened, he looked at her. Beneath her eyes there was swelling from the three days she had suffered” (111). This introduction to Ruth’s character is able to display her feelings of loss because of the fact that one of the first traits the reader learns about Ruth is that she had cried for three days after the loss of Frank, which does clearly show her sorrow because of the fact that three days is definitely a strangely long time to be crying for, especially since it seems like the entire family, besides her, had already moved on from crying about the loss. Another example of how Ruth is affected by loss is shown the night of Richard’s murder when Matt reflects on how “he believed Ruth knew... When Ruth said good night she looked at his face, and he felt she could see see in his eyes the gun, and the night he was going to” (116-117).
I have always had this odd fascination with the Holocaust. I don’t have a familial history attached to it or anything, yet I’ve still felt connected to it. My first encounter with the Holocaust was in elementary school. A Ukrainian Jew, a survivor of the Holocaust, came into my classroom and talked with the students through a translator. What I remember most clearly is when he mentioned every nationality that he met while in a concentration camp: Russians, Slovaks, Germans, Polish, the list goes on and on.
People Who Helped in Hidden Ways Topic: Germans that helped Jews during World War II Working thesis statement: Helping Jews was very dangerous in Nazi Germany during World War Two because of Hitler’s bigoted nationalism, yet numerous Germans civilians and soldiers assisted a Jew in some way during the time of war.

Rolling Introduction Introduction Paragraph #1 Introduction Paragraph #2 Religious intolerance and persecution of Jewish people was common in Nazi Germany; however, there were some Germans that helped Jews despite the dangers.

She uses the words ‘died’, ‘terror’, ‘fear’, ‘dark’, ‘risk’, ‘strain’, and ‘hellish’; which are all words associated with danger or negativity. In contrast, Irene enjoys being a mother and always thinks about her children when making decisions. She feels motherhood is a strong life-long responsibility that can definitely be stressful, but is worth it in the long run. She feels such an obligation to her children that she puts their needs before hers. “Nor did she admit that all other plans, all other ways, she regarded as menaces, more or less
Similarly, Raphaela appreciates Ruth’s welcome to the school, as being new is difficult for her. At a school with distorted hierarchy, emotional support is crucial.
