The definition of a hero is someone who always thinks about others and tried/tries to save lives, therefore, Oskar Schindler is a hero. Oskar Schindler is a hero because he was mad and thought about the Jews after he witnessed the massacre of the Jews in the town. He tries to buy all his workers back from the concentration camps when a typo error occured to save them. Schindler also goes out of his way to save his worker’s children from Auschwitz. Schindler was thinking about the Jews after he witnessed the massacre and makes up an excuse by saying it’s “bad business” in an angry tone when he is talking with Goeth, but he was just feeling bad for the Jews.
Simon a jew prisoner was begged for forgivenes by a SS soldier. Karl the SS soldier begged Simon for forgiveness as he killed a lot of jews. Simon decided that walking away was the right thing to do and I agree. I would have done the same as Simon due to the fact that mass murder can not be forgiven. Was that the correct way
When he see’s this I think this is another big wake up call for him. He really decided to step up father and not long after that he bought all the Jews so he could give them the chance of survival or at least those who remain. He did save a lot of lives, he saved more than any other person did or even put forth for effort into trying to make a difference. Schinder may have even started to shift other people who ran with him point of view or they could have hated him more than they already did, Either way what he did saved lives, a lot more Jews could have died if it were not for
Individuals make choices every day that affect history. During the Holocaust, the mass murder of Jews during Hitler’s reign, ordinary European citizens shaped history by allowing Jews to die. Their decisions were greatly influenced by their understanding of the universe of obligation, which sociologist Helen Fein defines as “The circle of individuals and groups ‘toward whom obligations are owed, to whom rules apply, and whose injuries call for [amends]’ (“We and They” 56). The majority of ordinary citizens chose to neglect Jews in order to protect themselves or their families. However, some brave individuals called upstanders chose to stand up to the Nazi regime by rescuing Jews and other victims of persecution.
Josef Mengele had a great impact, negatively, on the lives of Jews and Gypsies throughout the Holocaust. His experiments ended many lives along with the “selections” he had to make at the railroad unloading stations. Josef’s family was a major factor in both his decisions while entering the Holocaust, and trying to escape from the Americans and Soviets; it could be assumed due to his dark upbringing as a child, Josef made decisions regarding people’s destination that many others could never comprehend or every would be willing to make sure
It took a long time for him to explain to people why he wanted to take that fragile Hazara boy to United States with him, but he was supported by many people who never thought Hazaras as a low caste. Amir had risked his life when he went into the hands of the Taliban to rescue Sohrab. Just like him, Hans Hubermann in " The Book Thief" aided a Jew while a March to the concentration camps. He was whipped brutally by the Nazi followers, which made him think if he had done something wrong in doing the right. As recalled by Death in 'Book Thief ' “Whoever named Himmel Street has a healthy sense of irony.
We all know that Jewish people were the main targets in the Holocaust, but not many people know that other groups and races. Some groups that were killed are but not limited to: disabled people, LGBTQIA+ people, Roma Gypsies, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Polish People and people of African descent. While Jewish people should be recognized for their struggles, so should every other group. Disabled People Hitler didn’t want to have any disabled people in Nazi Germany. He thought that they were too much work and overall useless to society.
Forgive, not because they deserve forgives, but because you deserve peace. It’s not easy to stop blaming someone’s fault, especially for someone who do wrong to us. In the book The Sunflower written by Simon Wiesenthal, a survivor of the Holocaust during World War II, he described his conflict with Karl, a dying Nazi soldier who killed many innocent Jews and begging for forgiveness for his outrageous crime at the end of his life. At the end of this sad and tragic episode, Simon did not response to Karl’s request directly; instead he left us a tough question: “What should you have done?” Based on what Karl had done during World War II and his repentance, each person might have their own point of view about where should we draw the line of forgiveness.
This time it felt a little different, many people greeted them with open arms and were congratulating them on their wins. However, President Roosevelt snubbed them and didn’t send out the most positive vibe. In Germany, many people began to realize who the true Adolf Hitler was and that the Aryan race was not superior. Hitler began to execute many Jews and started a horrific event that many people know as the Holocaust. The games frustrated and embarrassed Hitler enough that he took action in the worst possible way.
I read about people with disabilities being killed by the thousands which hit especially hard since I myself have a disability, it made me tear up, knowing that something that these innocent people had no control of got them killed. Something that could have brought people together and made them celebrate their differences instead divided them and caused them to be killed. I truly have a deeper understanding of all that jews and righteous gentiles sacrificed, i’ve learned to choose kindness when hate is so tempting, and to do the right thing no matter how
Solomon has shown that he had the will to work and take abuse in the camps in order to live the next day. To repeat what I’ve said, I have learned, by doing this report on Solomon Radasky, to be grateful for the life that I have right
Starting off, there was a lot of resistance going around that helped in some cases and didn’t in others. Some people, that weren’t Jewish, were completely against the concentration camps and how the Nazis were treating them. They would show examples of resistance by taking in Jews to their homes and hiding them before being sent to the ghettos. That way they wouldn’t have to make it to the concentration camps. The Jews that were already imprisoned, resisted by stealing guards’ weapons and attacking guards like they do to them.
A. The most likely reason the number of Jehovah’s witnesses and many other persecuted groups killed in the Holocaust varies is because Nazis destroyed records as it became clear the Allies were going to liberate concentration camps and defeat the German army. The Nazis kept meticulous records of the number or people killed or deported and the value of the stolen property coming in from the victims. Promotions in the German army and admiration from other Nazis often came from the number of deaths or deported Ghettos an Officer had caused. The total death caused by a Nazi was often a point of pride, so he was very interested in knowing this number.
Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel had experienced this when he was captured by the Nazi and taken to the camps. Concentration camps were probably the most inferior place in the world. Torture did not begin with the camps though. The fear that the Nazis would come for them would eat the Jews lives’ out. Then, when the Nazi captured the Jews, they had to go through the transportation which was another type torment.
