Otto Frank The Holocaust took place in World War Two. Otto Frank was a Jew who was in World War Two. He also hid in the Secret Annex with eight other people including his wife and two daughters. Otto Frank is a good example of a survivor because he survived the Holocaust, he was in another war, and was good at medicine.
Gandhi connects to the Holocaust because he had a positive impact on India and the Holocaust left a negative impact on the Jews, so they both left tremendous impacts. Also, they are similar because Gandhi felt what he was doing was right, so did Hitler. Another example is after Gandhi was arrested for no reason he did not think all police were mean , just as the Jews did not think all Germans were mean. Gandhi also caused riots just as Hitler caused riots.
Mark Zusak, in The Book Thief, uses similes, situational irony, and symbolism to demonstrate the human trait of standing up for what they believe in. Through his similes, Zusak exemplifies the tendency of humans to stand up for what they believe in. Amazing and thrilling describes the exact opposite of life in Munich, Germany. The streets consisted of slumped over people trying to get past the struggles of war, and hundreds of Jewish people making their way to the atrocious concentration camp, Dachau.
This example shows that Schindler is heroic because he realizes that the Jews are being mistreated and makes him realize that he has to do something about this and shows his emotions when talking to Goeth after the incident. Someone might say that this is unheroic because this example shows no action of him being heroic or saving anyone. This is heroic because this could be considered as the Call to Adventure/Increased awareness in the Hero’s Journey and is basically the turning point in his life. Schindler starts to become a better person and take action like how Spider Man realizes that he must stop crime after he sees his uncle die from a criminal and use his power for good. Schindler’s “power” could be his money that he used in order to save the Jews and even buying/providing the Jews with food.
to ensure that everyone thought in a decent way that wasn’t a threat to the Nazi party. This meant that the Nazi party only let you hear and see what they wanted you to hear and see. Goebbels also organised mass rallies where Hitler presented amazing speeches with his flair as a brilliant speaker. This is a quote from Goebbels talking about propaganda: “The essence of propaganda consists in winning people over to an idea so sincerely, so vitally, that in the end they succumb to it and utterly can never escape from it.” (Propaganda in Nazi Germany).
Oskar Schindler: A True Hero “If you saw a dog going to be crushed under a car, wouldn’t you help him?” Not many people can say that they have saved thousands of lives, while still being friends with the people trying to kill them. It takes someone with bravery, courage, and valiance.
In conclusion, the responsibility of the Holocaust should be held under German people rather than the Nazis. The direct motivational traits that the German soldiers showed when herding Jews, the superior impression of German citizens that jeopardized the lives of Jews, and the unnecessary degrees of loyalty that the Germans heaved shows the deserving guilt of the Germans for the
Numerous bystanders claimed to have no other options when faced with a moral dilemma, and in doing so, they gave the perpetrators permission to hurt others. Bystanders enable perpetrators to commit atrocities; therefore, they are just as guilty of the crimes that the Nazis committed during the Holocaust. Bystanders do not know how to stop following the perpetrators’
Yes, I most definitely believe that the Nazi rule was beneficial for most of the people of Germany. I believe this primarily as, under the rule of the Nazis there was eradication of unemployment, boost of morale due to Hitler’s inspirational idealistic motives, reestablishment of hope and prosperity and economic succession. After the potent damage done by the Treaty of Versailles and the Great Depression, the German economy was at its verge of bankruptcy. Hitler and the Nazis played a pivotal role in the revival of major unemployment.
Oedipus did not accept what was being told to him. Teiresias spoke truthfully yet Oedipus became angry and spiteful, sending Teiresias away. Not a word that was told to Oedipus was considered my him, proving his blindness and lack of consideration towards the situation. Referring back to his self blinding, Oedipus at that time had succumbed to a horrifying act instead of accepting what was shared. The news came tumbling down and his actions were severe.
As I see it Wiesel is trying to say that when he remembers what has happened to him so far, he feels hopless. But because he remembers, he must not feel hopeless. Memory is power and it will save humanity and in this case the Jews. In the book Wiesel shares his memory of many people warning the Jews about the coming of the Nazis, which the Jews didn 't believe in and act upon.
I believe Tadeusz is a righteous person due to his extreme effort to help save the Abrahamers. Even though Tadeusz believed it was a “human obligation” to save the Jews, I believe he is one of the Tzadikim. He does not realize how much he is helping Jews by hiding them and risking his life. None of the commentaries we learn give Noah enough credit for what they could do today or in other generations. Although Tadeusz generation was not one of the best, he still probably would do other righteous things in other generations.
“No human race is superior; no religious faith is inferior. All collective judgments are wrong. Only racists make them,” said Elie Wiesel. The Holocaust took place during 1933 to 1945 primarily in Germany and Poland, but later spread to other areas of Europe. The Holocaust was deemed the persecution of millions of races, consisting mostly of Jewish families.
