He didn’t feel for him and didn’t even want to interact with him. When the blind man had a beard, he was shocked. He expected Robert to the image of a blind person he had. Also, the husband has no knowledge of the world, he didn’t know what a blind man looked like, acted like, or even knew that a blind man could have a beard. It wasn’t until the husband met Robert that all of this
The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses. This book is very important because it teaches the reader things they didn’t know well or proves to them that they are wrong if they believed that the Holocaust was not harmful. No one had the right to treat these people in that way and no one has the right to ban this book because this will be censorship. Night also shows the truth about the Holocaust and teaches us that this period in history should be prevented from happening
Famous writer Maya Angelou once said, “Don't let the incidents which take place in life bring you low. And certainly don't whine. You can be brought low, that's OK, but dont be reduced by them. Just say, 'That's life.” People, like Elie wiesel and Abraham Lincoln are heroes who tried to make the world a better place. Without knowing these two men left a big mark on the world by not letting the so called “villains” stop them.
Father states “He won’t amount to anything anyway. It’s better if he starts working with me now so that he can help the family.”(Valdez 631) Although Father state this about the younger brother, but it is also implying that this has happened to Johnny already . In conclusion, he would have amounted to nothing whether it be the military or life; he would have not been a tragic hero. Johnny is not a tragic hero because his “honorable” motives were not sincere. For example, Valdez states “He didn’t want to go and yet he did.
(AGG) What would you do if your friends and family were cold blooded killers, wouldn't you want to leave your society also?

Eventually, after a death in the group, LT. Cross was distracted and he decides to burn the letters Martha sent him. “On the morning after Ted Lavender died, First LT. Jimmy Cross crouched at the bottom of his foxhole and burned Martha’s letters… Lavender was dead. You couldn’t burn the blame” (O’Brien 22). This quote is important because it tells about why LT. Cross burned the letters and what other
This made me cringe. I could never imagine seeing helpless people being hit. Wiesel also wrote that when they
That night he decided to burn all the drawings he had, "I wanted to burn everything I'd ever drawn" (Thompson 57). Craig feels as though he is unable to use his drawing ability to express in his own way how he feels towards God. "I'd realized I'd only been Half-committed to my faith, and something had been distracting me from my bible studies" (56). He feels that he is drifting farther away from God by drawing. Craig is spending less time on God, and more time on drawing, which he perceives as sinful.
For example, in Elie Wiesel’s Acceptance speech he says, “Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.” During the holocaust nobody reached out to help the innocent people that were suffering. If someone is being jeopardized for being who they are, it is important to speak up and help out. Wesel does not want something so terrible to happen again in the future.
Eulogy for Okonkwo by Nowye this whole eulogy stuff bs and i don't know why we are doing this haha.a. When my father Okonkwo died, inside i felt despair and anger. With him being my father i obviously was very saddened to find out that he had hung himself. Though i am very saddened about our loss of Okonkwo i am sickened by the way he passed, He knew committing suicide in our town is very much against what we believe in here at Umuofia. Okonkwo knew this before he took his own life, which does not make much sense to me because he wanted to become leader of the clan for a very long time, but then took his life in such a dishonorable way.
When everyone in camp was crying and asking where God was as they all watched the boy struggle to cling on to life, Elie had thought to himself that God was there “hanging…from [the] gallows”, symbolizing his loss of faith in God. From then on, as Rosh Hashanah passed, Elie felt intense hatred for God as He did nothing to help the thousands of people suffering and being murdered. Elie refused to sanctify God’s name because of the immense pain He was causing, and felt angry that others in the camp continued to worship Him. Elie felt “terribly alone in a world without God, without man” and “without love or mercy”. As everyone prayed, Elie felt like “an observer [and] a stranger” because he had disconnected from God, and as he defiantly continued to eat instead of fasting for Yom Kippur, Elie “felt a great void opening” inside him as his last bit of trust in God faded.
As I see it Wiesel is trying to say that when he remembers what has happened to him so far, he feels hopless. But because he remembers, he must not feel hopeless. Memory is power and it will save humanity and in this case the Jews. In the book Wiesel shares his memory of many people warning the Jews about the coming of the Nazis, which the Jews didn 't believe in and act upon. These mistakes of neglection caused them to loose their loved ones.
This dehumanized the Jewish because they could see and smell people dying and they were not able to do anything to defend them. People being thrown to the flames had no clothes (they had no respect for Jewish religion). Another example of dehumanizing is when Ellie’s father is being hit to death. “ Eliezer, my son, come here… I want to tell you something… Only to you... Come don’t leave me alone… Eliezer” (p. 14) this shows how Ellie had lost respect for his father. Instead of going to him and hold his hand as it was his father last wish.
