One day when the foreign Jews were taken away Moshe the beadle, Elie's teacher, was also take away. When he came back he was in distressed and told the town about how the Nazis were exterminating Jews. No one believed him and thought he was just imagining it until one fateful day when the Nazis came and took the jews to a ghetto along with elie and his family. While there they were starved and most of their rights were taken away. The day before Ellie’s family was scheduled to be taken to the concentration camp a maid offered to help them, but sadly Ellie’s dad refused.
Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion. Elie Wiesel shows many instances of dehumanization through the abuse of all Jews and the loss of his own name. Through doing so, he tries to prevent any similar event. Many Jews suffered from dehumanization during this terrifying event. Elie was very affected by these acts of dehumanization, such as when he and other Jews were shaved completely.
The Concentration Camps and Japanese Internment Camps were different, because of the purposes, care of people, and religion against nationality. The purpose of the camps were opposite, because the Concentration camps was about killing, and the Japanese Internment camps was fear. First, the Concentration camps were all about killing the Jews, during the Holocaust. “Today I have nothing but dismal and depressing news to report. Our many Jewish friends and acquaintances are being taken away in droves.” (paragraph 4 Anne Frank).
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs. The Nazi thought they were the superior race, and Jews were “inferior” as well as a danger to the ‘perfect’ German community. Gradually, the German government was filled with people who believed that Jews needed to be purged. They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes.
Nazis dehumanize the jews in multiple ways and for multiple reasons in the times of the holocaust. The holocaust took place during WWII. At this time the chancellor of Germany know as Adolf Hitler had ordered a crusade against the jewish race. In this time period over 6 million jewish people including men women and children. Families were stripped from their homes with nearly all of their possessions removed from them.After first entering the gates they weren't even allowed the cloths off their backs.Elie Wiesel introduces the theme of Dehumanization in the holocaust by reckoning event of his past life throughout the novel.
As the Holocaust came to its near end, torture for those in Sighet, Transylvania begins. On page twenty, cruelty stirs up for the Jewish town after ghettos were set up. “A Jew no longer had the right to keep in his house gold, jewels, or any objects of value.” “There was a new decree: every Jew had to wear a yellow star.” In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, every fellow citizen has privileges that cannot be taken away due to race, color, sex, or language. Since their status was considered inferior, their rights were taken away before they knew that the Germans were going to wipe out their population. Under these quotes recited from the text, article two can be matched with the book’s description of discrimination.
In 1993 the beginning of the genocide of millions of Jewish people began otherwise known as the Holocaust. The Nazis plan to exterminate all Jewish people was referred to as the Final Solution. During this time period the Jewish people were discriminated against by being segregated, stripped of their identities, and being taken away from everything they own and love and forced into concentration camps. Segregation was one form of dehumanization and Jewish people were impacted by this greatly. Shown in Document #4: Discriminatory Decrees Against the Jews.
If any of the workers are not capable of performing tasks due to sickness or disease, they are most likely to get killed. The Nazis often refer to Jews as goods for nothing, and treat them like they are animals. Separating young children from their mother is emotionally dehumanizing the Jews. The Nazis dehumanize Jews physically by beating them up for nothing. When Eliezer crosses Idek’s path at work one day, he says, “I happened
Eventually Hitler began mass transportations from the ghettos to concentration camps starting with those people viewed as the least useful: the sick, old and weak, and the very young. At first Hitler started to gas those that were not useful. Other men and women who were in good condition were put to work. The first gassings began at the camp of Belzec, near Lublin, on March 17, 1942. From 1942 to 1945, Jews were deported to the camps from all over Europe, including German- controlled territory as well as those countries allied with Germany.
David Broudo was a Jew who helped destroy supply lines from the Germans that they established by blowing up bridges and trains and sabotaged them. He also smuggled munitions for resistance and hid guns in empty milk cartons (“David Broudo”). This smuggling was something many did during the Holocaust. The Holocaust started in the year of 1933 and lasted about 13 years. This dreadful event was the term for the slaughter of about six million Jews by the Nazi's controlled by Hitler.
