In a span of 10 years, the Holocaust killed over 7 million people, that’s just as much as the population of Hong Kong. In the book Night, by Elie Wiesel, Wiesel shares his experience on how he survived the Holocaust and what he went through. How he dealt with the horrors and even to how he felt of his dad’s death and how he saw himself after it was all over. As he tried to publish it he was constantly turned down due to the fact of how horrid and truful it was. He still tried and tried until it was finally published.
For instance, “Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker on April 30th, 1945” (Axelrod 2). Adolf Hitler was a Nazi politician, and some believe he alone is to be blamed for the Holocaust, even though the Nuremberg Trials proved many others were guilty as well. When millions of people are killed, and one person that helped gets away, it is hard to be content. In addition to Hitler, “Goring was sentenced to death by hanging but two hours before his execution the “last renaissance man” committed suicide, taking a cyanide capsule he had managed to smuggle into the cell” (Catherwood and Horvitz 3). He had been tried and sentenced to death at Nuremberg, but instead of taking his punishment he rebelled.
Although millions were murdered during the Holocaust, many war criminals were brought to trial and convicted for their crimes (Nuremburg Trials). The Nuremberg trials were a series of thirteen trials carried in Nuremberg, Germany, between 1945 and 1949.

Devil’s Island On November 30th, 1933, in Seattle, Washington, Mr. Pyle turned on the gas and cut one of his wrists. A few minutes later his wife smelled the gas and found her husband who police said was “despondent over financial troubles,” and brought him to the hospital. The Great Depression influenced many crimes and suicides that were necessary for most people to commit due to their financial deprivation. Financial stress being the number one cause for this violence, made it very hard for many families to succeed during the 1920s. If you disobeyed the rules of society, they sent you to prison.
Ted Bundy is another famous sociopath. He was executed in 1989, but before his execution he admitted to killing at least 30 young women. “From birth Bundy was already in a category in which the FBI survey found 43 percent of sexual and serial killers: he had only one parent” (twisted minds). His early years were a little complicated because he kept changing his story. His mother left him in behind after he was born and he fell in love with a woman who left him as well.
“If they execute me then I want it to be for a reason. What I want to come out of that is that they finally stop executing innocent people in this country,” Glossip declares. Attorney Bobby Bland has seen his share of killings reports “I felt that if I could get a plea for life without parole, that would be the best for everyone.”According to the Death Penalty Information Center then number of prisoners put to death in 2015 were 20.

Not to mention what happened during the Nazi period, Hitler’s infamous propaganda against Jewish shocked everyone. Briefly, several German scientist visited America, took experience and applied similar methods to people considered as “lives unworthy of life”, in order to obtain a society with only Aryan features. Disabled people, Jewish, gypsies and more were isolated in concentration camps or sterilized. Apart from the tortures, Nazis eugenic program intensified to death camps, resulting to more than 6000000 Jewish killed. After WWII, “eugenic” was primarily related to hostility and subsequently eugenics societies
