The Nazis deprived concentration camp inmates of their natural human rights, and of any other humanity they had left in them. Even the process of arriving at the concentration camp was dehumanizing and inhumane. First, the Jews were forced out of their homes, which is a huge part of a person's identity. Next, they were loaded onto trains where they were with way too many people for one train car. The train rides lasted up to 10 days.
Mrs. Schachter is freaking out because she literally experiences Hell on Earth.“‘Jews, listen to me,’ she cried. ‘I see a fire! I see flames, huge flames! (25) Although she knows she is experiencing Hell on Earth, people think she is hallucinating and faking it because nobody would ever expect

But again that night Mrs.Schächter starts to scream again and again she it beaten she is finally silent.

Many migrants refer to the train as “El Gusano de Hierro” (The Iron Worm) and “El Tren de la Muerte” (The Train of Death) (Nazario, p. 71). These nicknames highlight the great dangers and the frequency of deaths posed by the trains. In the
The night was growing longer, neverending.” (Wiesel 98). During the train ride to Buchenwald, everyone was tired, cold and hungry. People were starving or freezing to death, packed with 100 people to each cart. Nobody knew how long the ride was going to be, and they didn’t know when to expect to die. They were dying and confused, not knowing nor having anything to do.
As the Allied forces advanced through Germany, all the labor workers were shoved into trains. Wiesel describes the situation, “Our minds numb with indifference. Here or elsewhere, what did it matter? Die today or tomorrow, or later? The night was growing longer, never ending,” (Wiesel 98).
The Tail Sectioners struggle to make it to the front of the train or the sacred engine so they can kill Wilford the conductor as well as take over the train. As they revolt, they encounter innumerable obstacles from the guards, Minister Mason, Franco Edler, the teacher, egg-head and Wilford. Along
In Albert Marrin’s excerpt, Flesh and Blood So Cheap, the Triangle Fire was a real tragedy of 146 people (mostly immigrant women) who died from jumping off the factory building, burning, or suffocating from the fire in the building. In this excerpt, Marrin uses explicit and implicit meanings to express that this tragedy was started by the little value of human life and lack of safety standards. For instance, sweatshop conditions were dangerous for workers in the early 1900s. As well as terrible conditions, no one was prepared whatsoever for this disastrous fire to happen. Even the firefighters were not organized or ready either!
In the memoir Night, the narrator Elie Wiesel recounts a moment when the ss officers were transporting all the prisoners from buna to another camp and whenever somebody couldn’t keep running the ss officers shoot them. “They had orders to shoot anyone who couldn’t sustain the peace”(Wiesel 85). The ss officers cruelty to the prisoners led them to give up, they stopped trying. If someone stopped and the officers didn’t noticed, he would probably die under the feet of all the people behind them. As the author describes his experiences, many other examples of inhumanity are revealed.
Night has revealed to me the immensity of the suffering and ruthlessness that Jews were subjected to on daily basis during the holocaust in an emotional and moving first-hand experience. I choose a train, symbol of oppression, to represent the initial separation from a normal life in which everyone inside the crowded train car received, along with a taste of the pain and suffering that was soon to be forced upon them. I choose this quote to show how shocking mentally and physically the transition phase was from a normal life to that of the oppressed and to emphasize how easily he gave up in the beginning. Despite this, he managed to persevere and overcome the enormous challenges of surviving in a concentration camp.
Minerva got mad and yelled at Zeus and then she thought he was going to send her to the underworld but he didn’t. Instead he killed her. Then at Sanborn Central and all other schools art teachers got fired. All the art museums mysteriously burned up. People tried
Some were able to sleep in them, others forced to sleep on the ground with no fire to keep warm. It is October and the weather is cold , wet, windy, not to mention snowing and freezing rain. This caused even more pain and suffering with the deaths due to illness and disease. Many also died from hunger and exhaustion. Over 4,000 out of 15,000 Cherokee Indians died during the move to the west.
If anyone were to trip or fall they would be killed without any hesitation. Once the Nazis decided they had ran enough, the ones who had lived went on a train to go to Gleiwitz. On the train, a leader of the camp would throw some kind of food in the middle of the train for them all to fight for. After a while everyone went through another selection and if they did anything wrong they would be blown up. After people had died the strong would strip them of their clothes and all the food that they had to help themselves.
