Oskar schindler should be considered a hero because during the holocaust jews were facing the violence and misbehaving of nazis while schindler being a nazi was trying to help jews and give them the best life at that time he could and because of him nearly 1,200 jews survived the brutal war. At first, Schindler was accepting jews workers in his factory while others were kicking them out. He gave jews a work permit so, they can stay and don 't have to be moved to camp where other nazis whipped people. Jews were allowed to visit their family members working in other part of factory and were not afraid to killed if they made any mistakes but were appreciated on their good work. He would also entertain them by his humorous personality and lighten up their day with little gifts like a pack of cigarettes which can be traded for food.
This belongs in the courage section because he went from being a good guy to a bad guy, if he didn 't do that he would probably be killed like the rest of his family was. The last of many reasons Benn Kamm was courageous was, “Ben volunteered for dangerous missions blowing up cargo trains carrying supplies to German troops. Often, he and his fellow partisans discovered Jews hiding in the forests. “We took them with us” Ben said. “Old, young, children.
The Polish Resistance I will be writing about the Polish Resistance and their contributions to stopping the Nazi’s regime as well as their systematic killing of Jews.

The Nazi’s had recruited two allies to work as double agents, who misinformed them that their bombs had hit their targets. When politicians in London learned of this, they were left to play God. Ultimately, Winston Churchill decided that the double agents should continue to inform the Nazi’s they had executed their target. Although poorer communities would suffer, politicians estimated they could save as many as 10,000 lives by redirecting the bombs, (Edmonds, 6). Throughout his novel, Edmonds presents readers with similar situations and asks them what they would do and explains how the majority of people reach their decision.
Elie Wiesel’s memoir Night is good to people because it teaches them about the universe of obligation. The universe of obligation says that the closer people are to you, the more obligated you feel towards them and that the expansion and shrinkage of this universe are often a matter of life and death. The Holocaust is a strong example of what happens when one’s universe shrinks incredibly small. The purpose of the universe of obligation is to allow humanity to progress and even sometimes regress. It is important for people to know about the universe of obligation, so a tragic event such as the Holocaust does not

Through World War II many Jews across Europe tried to organize resistance against Germans arming themselves with smuggled and homemade weapons. Non-Jewish resistances were formed all around Europe showing that not just the Jews rebelled the Nazi regime.

These resistance groups at the time were very important as they saved thousands
Religious life was very strong in the ghettos. Traditional Jews tried to continue the observing of the Mitzvot. Of course, the Nazis did outlaw religion eventually (Rossel 183). Some survivors quoted that “public prayer in these dangerous times is a forbidden act. Anyone caught in this crime is doomed to severe punishment (Rosell
Jews themselves viewed France as a country of equality and tolerance to Jewish and other cultures. Until 1939, the immigration policy became more strict due to the very large amounts of refugees entering France from Germany and Spain.(Spain was having their own civil war at the time.) During the invasion and eventually the annexation by Germany, many of the Jews were once again fleeing to other places. During the war, all of France’s luscious farms were butchered by the war, as it was fought it Fance land. Even though The U.S had the Atlantic Ocean between the path to Europe, U.S still was involved in the Holocaust greatly.

The judges of the trials were from Great Britain, the Soviet Union, the United States, and France. These trials were held to bring justice to all the lives lost during World War two. After the Holocaust, the Nuremberg Trials were held to bring justice to Nazi officials, Industrialists, but failed to punish those who escaped.

Accordingly, the phases of forced labor that involved Jews differ from the general kind of forced labor.” Jews were forced in the first step to get to work and if they failed to do that to be exterminated. When in concentration camps many jews were forced to participate in experiments and torture. Many experiments were about Hypothermia, and testing diseases on innocent people, these people did not say it was okay to allow all of this to happen but because they were practically slaves, Nazis could do anything they wanted to these people.
The Zegota The Zegota was a group of brave people who saved thousands of lives and risked their own lives in the process to save others during World War Two while the Nazi were causing formidable views into the people. The Zegota helped thousands of Jews escape Nazi controlled europe demonstrating that more people should have been saved by others standing up to the Nazis.

Many people are advocates for humane human rights, Pope John Paul being one of them. The holocaust was not humane. More than 11 million people were killed during the holocaust, six million of them being jews and 1.1 million of them being children(online). As a child, Pope John Paul remembers neighbors and friends being taken away to camps(online).
