The Holocaust was the massacre of 11 millions people by the Nazis, six millions of them were Jews. The original meaning of “holocaust” in Greek is “sacrifice by fire,” so the Nazis planned massacre of the Jews. The Hebrew word "Shoah," which means "misery, destroy, or waste," is also used for mass murder. The Nazis used "the Final Solution" to mention their plan of murdering Jewish people. After Nazi conquered Germany in 1933, they believed Germans were better than they were.
It was an attempt of “good triumphs” in a negative environment, which did not work within the students’ roles. The guards became abusive, the prisoners started to rebel, and it did not stop because Zimbardo gave himself a role with the guards. The clips and descriptions of the experiment’s results were one of the most shocking things I have ever seen or heard, although I had read a paragraph about the same experiment prior to taking this course. Unethical was an understatement, as prisoners would go crazy. “F___ your experiment!
In the memoir Night, the narrator Elie Wiesel recounts a moment when the ss officers were transporting all the prisoners from buna to another camp and whenever somebody couldn’t keep running the ss officers shoot them. “They had orders to shoot anyone who couldn’t sustain the peace”(Wiesel 85). The ss officers cruelty to the prisoners led them to give up, they stopped trying. If someone stopped and the officers didn’t noticed, he would probably die under the feet of all the people behind them. As the author describes his experiences, many other examples of inhumanity are revealed.
Think of a man named Hitler, who killed 6 million Jews. During the Holocaust, a lot of Jews died from Hitler and his soldiers actions. These people he killed people, called Jews, the Nazis were very cruel and treated the Jews poorly. So they put them in concentration camps and killed all of them slowly, they killed most of them by gassing them and they also killed them by shooting them. In the book The Boy In The Striped Pajamas, Bruno was living in a place called Berlin then his dad got a promotion and the had to move to Out-With which is where he met Shmuel.
Like most people in Nazi Germany Hans expected to be punished. However, because of fear, Hans acted differently. According to Liesel, “(Hans) He sent them both away and spent till morning with his head in his hands, waiting (for the gestapo)”(Zusak 399). Hans was paralyzed in place he didn’t move he sat there awaiting his outcome. If fear wasn’t a factor, Hans wouldn’t be sitting their afraid, he would have run away, disappear or even just gone about his normal business.
He began to understand the distinction between his own rights and wrongs on his own and questioned “the use you learning to do right, when it’s troublesome to do right and aint no trouble to do wrong” (69). I believe one can decipher their own values, even if everyone thinks differently. Huck negated the public by feeling a dedication to his own beliefs and deciding his own morals. To emphasize the anxiety of living as an outsider in the community, Colonel Sherburn yelled, “Why don’t your juries hang murderers? Because they’re afraid the man’s friends will shoot them in the back, in the dark” (110).
Because of this he felt entitled to have better things and a better life. He was very ungrateful for the life he had and the things his father provided. This sense of entitlement led him on a downward spiral. He began to act out in school which only caused him more harm than good. Paul was taken out of school and the one escape from his life he had was taken away also.
Slam immediately didn’t like coach Nipper because of the way he responded to Slam’s actions. In the movie, Jamal's teacher Mr. Crawford doesn’t like Jamal either. First of all, Jamal is a new student at his school and Mr. Crawford thinks that his writings are too good. Mr. Crawford’s dream of being a published author got destroyed when he was younger so now, he doesn’t
He said the same about his stuff, that they can take something and he will learn to live without it, but take something everyday until they are reaching for his eyes, heart, soul, etc., is something that he can not deal with (In the belly of the beast). I think that this is where his anger comes from. One of the problems with corruption in penitentiaries was that if a guard disliked an inmate, that inmate had no say weather the guard is telling the truth or not. Especially if they had an aggressive background like Jake Abbott, he talked about how when he got transferred once that not one day after he got there one of the guards said the he assaulted him, even if
In the story, Dr. Nemur was sometimes really cold to Charlie throughout his testing. They also did not show him if anything was going wrong with the test and Charlie was not away until he made his theory on Algernon. The doctor's failed the patient by not telling him that he would die and he did not have a parent guardian to help him make the hard decisions (Siegler). Charlie when he made those decisions, had an IQ of sixty-eight and could not spell. Charlie Gordon's doctors did not act ethically when they performed the surgery to make him smarter.
