This shows how the Nazis treated Elie and the other Jews with hunger and how they did not get any food. The Nazis will treat the Jews as if they were not real people this is an example of man inhumanity to man. The memoir Night by Elie Wiesel had many themes some were struggle to maintain faith, Nazi cruelty and man's inhumanity to man. The Holocaust has a big role in history and so many Jews had lost their life because one man hate them so much that he had to punish the Jews and made the Nazi army did many inhumane things to
There was a stampede. Dozens of starving men fought desperately over a few crumbs. The worker watched the spectacle with great interest.” (Wiesel pg 100) Humans eventually realized how destructive we can become. The millions of people who died, died not having their basic civil rights. The Germans made sure to strip the Jews of their entire identity to embarrass them, then kill them.
Because of this, Hitler’s goal was to cleanse Germany of any backstabbing Jews (Growing Fascism in Germany Notes, pg 1). Hitler became impatient while waiting for the Jews to die in the ghettos so he held a conference in Wannsee on January 20, 1942 to decide the next step for purifying Germany. Hitler, along with 15 other scholars, decided to deport all Jews to extermination camps and kill the majority of them in gas chambers. Hitler prohibited the Jews from fleeing the country so he was able to purge the entire population. One of the largest death camps in Germany, Auschwitz, was a result of the Wannsee Conference.
The living people experience an eternal sorrow, danger and death. Whereas the dead and the departed souls ‘are blessed with an instant death.’ Between 1941 and 1944, the Nazi German authorities deported millions of Jews from Germany, from occupied territories, and from the countries of many of its Axis allies to ghettos and to killing centers, often called extermination camps, where they were murdered in specially developed gassing facilities. The living people have to face a lot of hardships in the form of long tortuous journey: While the living condemned to a short wretched life, And a long tortuous journey into unnamed place, Converting Living Souls, into ashes and gas. No. I Have to Remember and Never Let You Forget.
The Holocaust was one of the darkest events in history. It was a time when innocent lives were taken just because they had somewhat different beliefs. The man behind this evil plan was Adolf Hitler, the Fuhrer of Germany and the Nazi Party. He made it his goal to destroy the Jewish race and anyone else who stood in his way. Hitler devised a long systematic plan that went on to wipe out 6 million European Jews, two-thirds of the Jewish population (Strahinich 7).
During the Holocaust, there were many different types of cruel Concentration Camps where various activities took place and killed many innocent people. Some people say that the Concentration Camps were good, some say it was the cruelest most horrifying thing that has happened in all of human history. So were the Concentration Camps good or bad? What could be good about locking up inocent people and killing them? Concentration Camps are places were Nazi’s held the unwanted in their “perfect” world.
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
Horrors of The Holocaust The memoir Night by Elie Wiesel is one of the many novels written by him and others about the true cruelty of the Nazis. The memoir shows the abominable actions of the Nazi perpetrators; for example, “Faster, you swine, you filthy sons of bitches!”(Wiesel 91). This quote shows the feelings of the Nazis and how they brutally treated the Jews and other races. Swine, a term for pigs, commonly used throughout the Nazi camps; this is not the first time that the Kapos and other Nazi soldiers have called the Jews pigs or dogs. This quote shows the inhumane treatment of the people sentenced to the concentration camps during World War II where six million Jews die in various ways.
The biggest concentration camp where most of the Jews went and were killed was Auschwitz. The Jewish were put through a time of unfairness and had no say on how they could live their lives during this time period. To begin with, the Nazis set up many concentration camps to murder a mass number of Jews that stayed there. “ the Nazis administered a massive system of more than 40,000 camps that stretched across Europe from the French-Spanish border into the conquered Soviet territories, and as far south as Greece and North Africa” (Daily Life..). Some of the major camps were Auschwitz, Belzec, Bergen-Belsen, and Buchenwald.
Concentration camps you basically do everything the Nazis say or you are punished. Whether is be to do labor for hours on end, or stand for 24 hours without falling(“Concentration Camps”). The vast system of these camps was the production of death and torture on a enormous scale. Lastly, death camps are when they bring a group of people and mass murder them. The most commonly known way to do this was gas chambers(“Concentration Camps”).
