For those who are unsure, oppression is the mistreatment of a group for an extended interval of time. Since there are heaping amounts of oppression in both genocides, this topic will be broken up into two subtopics; the brutality and dictatorship in the prisons, and how oppression happened in other ways both preceding and during the genocides. As many know, the oppression in the prisons for the mass extinctions mentioned earlier were unbearable. In fact, according to Wiesel, the mistreatment in the prisons were so bad that having frozen bodies and holding rocks so cold that their hands could have gotten stuck was just the norm (Wiesel 78). In other words, conditions in the camps for the Jews were so bad that something like being so cold that hands got stuck on rocks was normal to them, when it seems to society that that would be one of the worst pains imaginable.
Punishments such as being wiped or starved were part of the harsh conditions they had to face. Nazi treated these real people as if they weren't even alive. Wiping them ad beating them as if their lives didn't even matter. “So he beat me, what can I tell you? Only thank God, Anja didn't get also such a beating, she wouldn't live” (Spiegelman 57).
Jacob Riis knew that the people in the tenements were living in horrible conditions, and that no one would intervene. Not only did he go to these tenements to write about them, he also took pictures of what was happening inside those tenements. In the tenements, lived very poor people, so even 5 dollars would be too much for them. While the rent was too high for these people, the wages were too low for the factory workers. “Their rent was eight dollars and a half for a single room on the top-story, so small that I was unable to get a photograph of it even by placing the camera outside the open door.
Houses and fields were left unattended during the trials, and crop failure was a result of the neglect. Salems Politics were also affected, the Salem Village committee was replaced with an anti-Parris committee. Parris tried to make peace and save his job but didn't do very well and agreed to leave the town. After the trials many of the townspeople didn't get along with the ones who accused their friends or family. These trials shook the town of Salem, they even changed the name of the town after that to Danvers because of how guilty
Remarque describes the soldier’s struggles to keep their bread away from the rats that invest their living quarters (Remarque 102). The environment that the soldiers were forced to live in, was extremely uncomfortable, but also put them at risk for disease. Along with the disgusting living conditions, and life threatening injuries due to destructive explosions and gunfire, the soldier were endangered by WWI’s new use of mustard gas. Remarque explains the sheer panic that occurred when gas was detected. The soldiers alerted their fellow comrades of the gas, and then they had to quickly put their masks on and take cover in the shell hole.
There was no formal or proper hygiene while in the trenches, and medical care was less than desirable. Most of the time the cure was worse than the illness. Diseases like Cholera, Typhus, and Disentary thrived because of animals such as rats and mice. While poor sewage and terrible waste disposal along with stagnant water, ruined food, and uncovered decaying bodies laid host to numerous diseases. While the Western front laid way for diseases and sickness the terrority between enemy lines known as “no man’s land” was a literal nightmare.
Rats especially, caused a huge problem for many of the soldiers in Trench Warfare. Rats snatched up food when an opportunity was given to them. For the worst part, it could even infect your meal. Rats also terrified soldiers due to their unpleasant demeanor. When I mean that, I'm trying to say that if you were left unguarded, a Rat would most likely assault you.
People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Harper Lee 10). This quote helps explain that Boo is locked up because Scout and Jem, as well as most people in town, have never seen Boo inside of the house or outside of the house. They also will not meet Boo because they are scared of him. During the story they explain that when something happens in the town, Boo is to blame. This quote helps explain some of the crimes or scary acts, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows… people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated” (Harper Lee 10).
Due to their poor pay, they would live in cramped and humid houses making them extremely vulnerable to diseases like pneumonia. At that time, that disease would be fatal. They were living in an endless cycle of poverty whilst aristocrats where enjoying their lavish lifestyles by doing little work that was as hard as the peasants. This mix of terrible living conditions and difference in lifestyle in Russia could have caused civil unrest and would make it hard to

The holocaust was a terrible time for Jews and the world because it was the start of another world war. These old boxcars were just the beginning of hard times for the Jews.

¨The door was blistered and disdained.¨ That shows the door was dark and creepy. ¨The whole business looked apocryphal.¨ This showed the business wasn 't full proof. ¨She had an evil face.¨ Her face was dark and mysterious.

The guards would barely give them any food or water. When the Americans or whoever was helping them arrived there would still be some prisoners left. These people were starved and in horrible health. The conditions shouldn’t have been livable for them. Concentration camps were not something a person should have to live through.
