Germany needed a scapegoat for all the struggles they were facing and Hitler used stereotypes to give the German people a scapegoat. Ignorance clouded the judgment of the German people. Ultimately the Jews would pay the price while the world was oblivious of the crimes against humanity which the Nazis committed. Elie Wiesel is stuck in dark times for people of his ethnicity. Nazis felt that the Jewish people were inferior.
Adolf Hitler, “implemented these laws to ostracize, discriminate and expel Jews from German society” (3) Diverse culture was rejected. Physically, the people of Germany, mostly jews, were affected because of Hitler trying to make the population one master race. He believed aryans were this “master race” as he believed the grew to have good health strength and overall, good characteristics unlike Jews
Nazis are members of the National Socialist German Workers Party that controlled Germany from 1933 to 1945 under Adolf Hitler. Germany was the place where discrimination against Jews was supported, and in some cases hated by people like Hans, Liesel, and Rosa. Liesel and her foster family go through this terrible time and unfortunately, everybody died except for Liesel. Liesel, her foster family and few other people stood by what was right throughout the novel and did not give in to Hitler’s convincing propaganda. Even though all of this terrible discrimination and cruelty is going on throughout the novel, Liesel performs small, loving, individual acts that gives people comfort, happiness, friendship, and meaning in a time of poverty, pain, and grief.
Though what he says is naive, it points out the barbarity of the German attitude toward the Jews. If an uneducated child could be puzzled by this, then how could learned adults allow such a thing? Through Bruno’s comment, John Boyne conveys the corruptness of the German leaders during the Holocaust, an idea that the movie does not relay to the watcher nearly as well. The book impels the reader to think deeper about the horrors of the Holocaust, and all this ties into the true theme of the
Elie Wiesel made a speech called, "The Perils of Indifference." In which he believes that indifference is evil. Elie Wiesel is correct that indifference is corrupt because it makes people not care, and it makes other people suffer. Indifference makes people not care about something or someone. In Elie Wiesel's speech called, "The Perils of Indifference", he articulated, "Sixty years ago, its human cargo -- maybe 1,000 Jews -- was turned to Nazi Germany."
While we can easily argue that Nazi Germany and Hitler’s rule was a totalitarian regime there were some aspects of the German life that were not controlled by the Nazis and there were some groups who managed to see through the front that Hitler was putting and opposed him. Education and the German Youth is a big example of indoctrination and the Nazi totalitarian regime as what was taught to the future of Germany was very selective. Teachers who had been teaching throughout the Weimar Republic saw this new method of teaching in a different way than younger people and as such many of them were fired because the Nazi’s feared that they might teach the german youth the old ways which Hitler viewed as a period of weakness and failure. For the children living in Germany at the time of Hitler’s rule, the Nazis were a new and exciting thing and when the Hitler youth was formed children felt like they were a part of something and even enjoyed wearing the uniform. They were also taught to love Hitler which is now seen as a form of indoctrination because you are teaching kids that not liking Hitler is a crime.
We all know that Jewish people were the main targets in the Holocaust, but not many people know that other groups and races. Some groups that were killed are but not limited to: disabled people, LGBTQIA+ people, Roma Gypsies, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Polish People and people of African descent. While Jewish people should be recognized for their struggles, so should every other group. Disabled People Hitler didn’t want to have any disabled people in Nazi Germany. He thought that they were too much work and overall useless to society.
It is said that Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann used this theory to indirectly explain the status of the Jews during World War II. The Jews were under the control of the Nazis. Adolf Hitler dominated the whole society and mistreated the Jews. And since the Jews were the minority group, they remained silent since they feared that they would be separated or isolated. This explains the theory by Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann.
He blamed the Jews that they did not fight for them, but it wasn’t true. It became a Nazi theme propaganda. Many of the German Jews fought the battle. The Germans were so humiliated and Hitler joined the He then joined the National Socialist workers party (Nazi party), which was for a group of young men. Germany had to get rid of their emperor.
The events that took place in WW2. Where Adolf Hitler subjugates Germany and sets laws that targeted Jews based on their religion. They blame Jews that they were the cause of all the problems for an example the loss of WW1. These laws segregated them from others like they are trash and things that aren’t meant to live. The type of articles that explains these things have two sides objective and subjective.
Scout thinks to herself that there’s something amiss with this statement, and when she goes home, she asks Jem, “How can you hate Hitler so bad an’ then turn around and be ugly about folks right at home?” (page 331). Scout has a major realization that prejudice is also right where she lives. In addition to this, it’s easy to see how Scout relates this back to the Tom Robinson case, as there was enough evidence to prove Tom’s innocence, but because he was black, he was found to be “guilty”. When children are taught an idea or belief, they tend to stick with it, but the idea also needs to be enforced. The third graders are taught about how discrimination is a awful thing, but that belief is not enforced in their own town, which doesn’t make teaching the idea effective.
This juxtaposition is powerful because it meant that he did not wish to witness the consequences of his decisions and refused to accept responsibility for the deaths that he had caused. This is yet another similarity that Himmler has with Griffin as she had bullied another girl, however disowned her acts afterwards as if she had not done anything. Griffin accordingly proceeds to write about a Holocaust survivor who had watched and even joined in a circle of kids who beat her friend because he was Jewish. Griffin, Himmler, and the Holocaust survivor are part of a “web of connections”, connected to every other person in the world that have also tried to disown their actions. This confirms Griffin’s idea that people do indeed share a “common past”; in Griffin, Himmler, and survivor’s case, this would be bullying other
Question #2: Paying attention to the history of the holocaust. The jews were targeted by the German authorities because they believed the Jews were “inferior” and were a threat to the superiority of the Germans. The jews were a target that the Germans thought would be easy to persecute. There are people who we try to scapegoat today. A scapegoat is when we blame something on a person or a group of people for being an easy target like the Jews.
In To Kill A Mockingbird, the novel shows prejudice. Prejudice is when you judge someone because of their race, how they look, or where they come from. In our world, when you see a gangster, you think he already killed someone or he is a bad guy but he is not. The novel is shown in a kid 's point of view because kids need to know not to judge people just by looking at them. Being prejudice is a really disrespectful.
If one forgives another person the effects affect different people simultaneously. It affects the one asking for it and it affects the people around you politically. Jean Amery explains, “ Politically, I do not was to hear anything of forgiveness! I believe you that, who have devoted your life to investigation the political realm of Nazi crimes, will understand my position”(108). The law of course justifies the Nazi Holocaust as rightfully wrong, with that said it requires a due process for the Nazi members to adhere for forgiveness from the law.
