Of all the terrible events in history, the Holocaust may be the worst of them all. This tragedy was so terrible, I cannot think of the ones who instigated it as human beings. It was against many morals and standards that the world views today as common ethics. The most terrible part of this is, perhaps, how today’s new and younger generations are not sufficiently educated about this disaster. Although many younger generations do not know about the Holocaust, it’s importance should be emphasised in today’s society to learn from it, to realize that every human life is important, and to appreciate the blessings of the present day.
The fact that the Nazis saw people different than them as less than human is the most upsetting to me. Even in today’s world, when many political leaders are incredibly divided in their views, people still find a way to humanize their opponents. It is highly necessary to have perspective and respect for others so the world can prevent a horrible tragedy like this from occurring
Eyewitnesses reported the Nazi brutality in Poland to the Allied governments, who were criticized after the war for their fail to respond, or to announce the mass murder news. The lack of action was most likely because of the Allied focus on winning the war, but was also the general misunderstanding with which news of the Holocaust was in denial and disbelief that such thing could be happening on such a large scale. At Auschwitz, more than 2 million people were killed in the process of gathering people to start the camp. A large population of Jewish and non-Jewish prisoners worked in the camp there; though Jews were poisoned, thousands of others died of hunger or illness. During the summer of 1944, even as the events of D-Day (June 6, 1944), a large population of Hungary’s Jewish was forced to go to Auschwitz, and
The killings and oppression of the “inferior” people was tragic, and most people find it unspeakable to talk of or write about. Unspeakable meaning that it’s so much and so terrible, it 's hard to say. Most writers use different techniques to express these events of The Holocaust such as symbols, repetition, and admitting that words cannot tell the horror of what occured. Using symbolism and imagery is shown as an effective way to tell the trepidation left by the holocaust’s horrifying events. Elie Wiesel does this very well in his book Night.
Where the Jews had lived and how they had lived were a big part of the Holocaust. The Holocaust was an important time in history to learn about because issues like what happened then still happen just not as torturous. It helps to understand what happens in different countries just because of your religion. Many people today get killed for having a different religion. At the end of the book Night by Elie Wiesel shows that even though you can be put through the worst time in your life, you don’t only have to think about
In society there are depersonalizations that come with institutions such as places of education, and government. One of the terrible markers of depersonalization is genocide. One of the most remembered genocides in history a part from, Stalin’s political prisoners, and the re-locating and executions of Native American’s in the new world, is the Holocaust. During the Holocaust, Nazi’s did not treat Jews like people but rather a disgraceful part of society that were to be rid of. However, depersonalization does not only happen on a global level, but rather it happens daily in each of our lives.
The Nuremberg laws had caused the Jews to feel isolated from society and had affected them in various ways. “Adolf Hitler announced the Nuremberg Laws on September 15, 1995” (“ Nuremberg Laws”). This was when the laws were released and when everything had changed for the Jewish people. Also, when these laws were released it had also caused the Jewish people to feel defenseless because they had gotten their freedom and rights stolen from them. These law basically helped the Germans overpower the Jewish people.
The discrimination against any group or organization occuring to is brings a lot of importance to the Holocaust. This is because if people can look back on a real life example displaying how discriminatory laws can lead to genocide, like the discrimination against Jews lead to the Holocaust, they would be able to realised that these discriminatory laws today need to be prevented and stopped. Otherwise, a holocaust against any of these previously mentioned groups could materialize. Moreover, the Holocaust ended up having multiple, universal effects on the victims. Similarly, to a much lesser degree, the Holocaust had an effect on the indifferent people that were unknowing of the true occurrences inside the Jewish concentration camps.
Introduction: During the Holocaust, many people suffered from the despicable actions of others. These actions were influenced by hatred, intolerance, and anti-semitic views of people. The result of such actions were the deaths of millions during the Holocaust, a devastating genocide aimed to eliminate Jews. In this tragic event, people, both initiators and bystanders, played major roles that allowed the Holocaust to continue. Bystanders during this dreadful disaster did not stand up against the Nazis and their collaborators.
He becomes very confused because he doesn’t understand why god would let such a thing happen and why the Germans are wanting to kill all of the jews. Him being “punished” like this by god is what pushes him to keep going and try to live because he wants to prove to god that there wasn’t a reason to give up on him. Eliezer’s faith for god begins to decrease when he starts to see many innocent people die. In the beginning of the novel, Eliezer was very religious toward and he was eager to learn more about the torah and many more aspects of
Every single person - victim, bystander, or persecutor - was affected by the holocaust in one way or another. Many child survivors, like Romney, embody the aftermath of that human tragedy, and represent the aftershocks of an impact that indefinitely changed human history. These aftershocks might not be so explicit, but learning about the holocaust makes us view humanity differently, and that in itself is an aftershock. We realize that some humans can be more malleable, evil, cowardice, and immoral than we could have ever
One of the most infamous murderers to go unnoticed is Adolf Hitler. Hitler killed over 60 million people. For some time his actions went unrecognized, disregarded and overlooked. Many people ask; How was he able to do this with no objections? The answers are simple.
The holocaust was a terrible time for Jews and the world because it was the start of another world war. These old boxcars were just the beginning of hard times for the Jews. The holocaust needs to be remembered for the sake of the dead, but also for the sake of the living, so it never happens again. The worst part about it is, many people turned the other
The Holocaust. That may just be words to some people, but to others, this was the most devastating thing ever to happen to one human race. The Holocaust happened because Hitler blamed Jewish people for losing World War I. The Holocaust was mostly to get rid of people that Hitler didn’t see as the superior race. The superior race was blond hair and blue eyes.
In total, german authorities and their collaborators killed up to six million Jews. That was two-thirds the population of the Jewish population in Europe 1939. Even though the Nazis didn’t annihilate the Jewish population or even win the war, they still ended, destroyed, and changed many people 's lives. So I conclude that the final solution was one of the most thought out and persistent plans
