Have you ever wondered what happened to the Nazi guards alive during the Holocaust? Former Nazis to this day are still being prosecuted, but should they really be? Nazi guards should not be put into jail anymore for many reasons. First, Nazi guards wouldn’t have been able to stop the massacre from happening. When they signed up to become Nazis, they didn’t actually know what was going on, and when they got there, if they were to testify against the killing, they would have just been shot.
According to the article “Resistance During The Holocaust”, “ In approximately 100 ghettos… underground organizations were formed. The purpose of such organizations was to wage armed struggle, that is, to...escape from the ghetto. The reason to actively resist is to escape from a place because passively resisting isn’t going to do anything to help you. Some people may say that peace can deal with anything but if your in a ghetto and you want to get out passively resisting isn’t going to intimidate anyone and is more likely to get you killed. So for this reason actively resisting is the better idea.

Ishmael did have his mind pulled bit by bit, and he was influenced and obligated, but he successfully fought through the suffering and came out better for it. Ishmael believed that more people should know about the horrors of the situation, so much so that he was inspired and created his novel to inform us about his life and to reach out to those in the same situation he was Peyton Poovey A1 9/25/15 in. Had Ishmael made it to the U.S. without a scratch or sacrifice it would've been just another story to tell at the local pub. It was this mental tearing and scarring that inspired him to inform others that things like this are really happening in the
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, why this book written by Mark Twain should be on the banned books list in schools and why it is too mature for it’s students. This book is full of situations that honesty students are not able to handle, leaving inappropriate impressions about racism and how to treat people and is going to cause teenagers and young adults to repeat the language and personalities seen in this, to other groups of this century that are fitting now The problem with Adventures of Huckleberry Finn isn’t that it is a bad book, not that maybe it is poorly written or isn’t a learning experience. The fact of the matter is that students do not hold the attention span or mental capacity to be forced to deal with this. While some may use to excuse that high school students may have enough knowledge over these situations, or if explained, people would enjoy the moral of the story more, that is not always the case. Students in high school already are expected so much of.
And in this imperfect world war may happen for the best. My thought on war is that it should not happen unless it is necessary which it may be necessary in this imperfect world but if it does happen then it should not be completely brutal and I know that is hard to stop because wars are just brutal and there is no way to make killing a person not brutal. Voltaire shows the brutality of war very well in the novel Candide and he did a very good job of doing that in a humorous way throughout the novel. Overall I enjoyed reading it and it really made me think about issues in this
The Holocaust exists as a fundamental turning point in regards to international human rights, but what is often ignored is the desensitizing effect that photography and the frequent exposure to human tragedy may have on an individual bearing witness to such photography. Originally, post-Holocaust photography acted as the only form of media that could be trusted as fact. There was no contesting the human tragedy that lay out before their eyes. Furthermore, the Holocaust is often envisioned as the moment in history in which the global community finally came together to actively prevent and protect the world from another genocide from ever occurring again. Unfortunately, as history has shown, this hopeful thinking is yet to come true.
The Holocaust is a severely important event in Jewish and German History. It was the death of 6 million Jews. Surprisingly, 33% of adults in a survey didn’t even know what it is. This could be the fault of the American School system not requiring most states to teach about the Holocaust. Students should be taught about the Holocaust because if no one taught it the history would be lost in the generations and future children or adults would never know such a thing happened, it has many benefits for students, and many adults agree that it should be taught.
The Holocaust, a moment in the history of fear, survival, hiding, and death. A time of one of the most feared actions taking place globally, World War II. Many people believe that the Holocaust did not exist, but it was very, very, real indeed. The Holocaust is the most unforgettable event that all survivors could not remove from their mind, it was used as an extermination process for Jews(Allen 6). Many say that there was an alternate path that could have been taken to avoid the war, and they are correct, there were multiple ways to avoid both World War ll and the Holocaust, but humanity and society were blinded by fear and bloodthirst, they really are not to blame, it was the most brutal events in human history(Vail 9).
