Everyone has the ability to show compassion, but it’s the ones who take action and help others that truly make a difference. If someone had shown compassion and mercy to the millions of Jews who lost their lives, then there would not have been this horrible time in history. Even when Elie was in a camp that could potentially take his life, he still helped out and created light with others.
My thought of Elie Wiesel talking about compassion is, since he was in the Holocaust some like Miep and Mr. Kraler showed compassion to the Franks and Van Daans by giving them a place to to hide and food to eat so they can survive. Elie Wiesel must of shown a lot of compassion to people and that might be one of the reasons why he survived Auschwitz he must have shown compassion to some or most and he might have been shown compassion by those people. When I first saw Elie Wiesel I saw that he had a good soul. He didn’t look like he would do anything bad to anyone. I could image him as that person who’s always there for you, he shows compassion.
The loyalty of these people is what really kept the movement alive. The nonviolence worked because people were willing to sacrifice themselves for the greater good. “But whether or not we succeeded in obtaining these conveniences, every one of us was firm in his resolution of passing his term in jail in perfect happiness and peace.” (Document C, Gandhi). Gandhi’s followers knew the price they would have to pay for their civil disobedience, and they all accepted it. Their unwavering loyalty kept their movement alive.

Regardless of all the difficulties jews encountered, they managed to keep their tradition alive to ensure hope and emphasis determination. In cultural and spiritual Resistance, “ for most Jews acts of cultural and spiritual resistance were the only possible means to oppose Nazi tyranny. Such acts undermined Nazi power and inspired Jewish hope,” #5. Sacrifices were high and risks were taken to maintain the customs and rituals alive. Some may say, however, to keep the culture, ore needs to live with dignity not in shame or misery.
Still, others disagree they say life should be a priority over culture. However, culture made surviving living, it gave them a break from the maltreatment. Like the Jewish people in the Holocaust had similar ideas as the Native Americans during the Indian Removal. Native Americans upheld old, sacred traditions, even on the trail of tears. They both understood the importance of keeping their culture alive, and persevered despite the traumatic events they were forced to endure.

Jews began to hear about what the ten Boom family was offering, and began to move in one by one. Even though Jews kept finding their way to the ten Boom household, they were still greeted warmly and all got an opportunity hide there. This was true because the family believed that god was sending those Jews to their home for love and protection. I thought it was courageous how the ten Boom family could put their life in jeopardy, by rescuing as many Jews as they could. If they didn't have such a religious worldview, they could have just turned down those people and lived a safer life with no risk.
She showed a side of her that made everyone around her realize that she is in it to win it and that she will not give up to people like the Nazi’s that want the Jews to lose hope. Hanna’s courage shines through her and through the people around her as she faces life in the Holocaust. Hanna definitely survived the Holocaust not only because she was resilient and courageous but because she had the motivation to survive. “Look after each other … and get home safe. And when you do, tell everyone what you saw and what they did to us” – Papa.
Another one of the many themes in this story is to always have hope. The Holocaust was an extremely difficult time to live in, but through it all, the Franks never lost hope. It was hard to keep hope, but through constant encouragement from each other, they managed to stay hopeful, even through the hardest times. "For the past two years we have lived in fear. Now we can live in hope" (Act II, scene 4, p. 119, Mr. Frank).
It seems to me like it’s getting better. There isn’t any more problems anymore and we are settling in okay close to family. So I’m also grateful this challenge brought my family together and filtered out me and my mother’s life by getting rid of the bad stuff like my step Father. And just simply moving on. I’m almost positive my hardest challenge is over and I truly believe it was my hardest challenge in my life.
