This juxtaposition is powerful because it meant that he did not wish to witness the consequences of his decisions and refused to accept responsibility for the deaths that he had caused. This is yet another similarity that Himmler has with Griffin as she had bullied another girl, however disowned her acts afterwards as if she had not done anything. Griffin accordingly proceeds to write about a Holocaust survivor who had watched and even joined in a circle of kids who beat her friend because he was Jewish. Griffin, Himmler, and the Holocaust survivor are part of a “web of connections”, connected to every other person in the world that have also tried to disown their actions. This confirms Griffin’s idea that people do indeed share a “common past”; in Griffin, Himmler, and survivor’s case, this would be bullying other
Fortunately for Hitler, he regained his sight and was awarded with blind cross. Many of the German soldiers also had disabilities. Hitler at that time was in the army, and he decided to help Germany by waging a second war against the opponent nations. Hitler an Austrian, took a anti-Semitism platform against the Jews saying that the Germans were “stabbed in the back” by the Jews. He blamed the Jews that they did not fight for them, but it wasn’t true.
Benny did not like the idea of god getting credit for everything humans achieve as she was totally against believing in god. Benny religious beliefs are exemplified with this quote “I don’t believe in God. I don’t even think about it. It’s just that I get so tired of Him getting credit for all the things the human race achieves through its own stubborn effort” (51). What Benny is saying in other words, is that she is against believing in god and is unhappy how god is credited for all of man's achievements.
In the novel Night and the poem “The Hangman”, the bystander effect took place because people were afraid to bring attention to themselves. In the film The Hunger Games, however, Katniss Everdeen took a stand because she was not afraid of what would happen to her but what would happen to her sister and others in trouble instead. This feeling of fear for yourself rather than others is what separates the bystanders from the morally courageous people of the world. In the novel Night, most of the prisoners during the Holocaust became bystanders because of the fear for themselves getting killed. When Elie’s father gets hit for the first time, Elie said, “ My father had just been struck, in front of me, and I had not even blinked.

The Holocaust was a time in which millions of people were persecuted and mistreated: people banned together and stood up against prejudice and discrimination by actively and passively opposing the Germans. Citizens that actively resisted used violence and force to directly attacked the Nazis in attempt to save their life. Those that prefered, prepared to resist passively by not using physical brutality, but instead continued their daily lives out of the sight of the Nazis. In “The Diary of Anne Frank,” we see how Meip, a Dutch Citizen resisted the Germans passively, by hiding the Frank family and four other Jewish families in a secret annex above Anne’s father 's business premise during World War Two. They resisted without risking anybody’s life, yet still maintained their Jewish culture and beliefs.

The Rape of Berlin was a war crime; it was not a necessary evil. History books only tell us so much compared to what actually happens, they tend to leave out some topics because they just don’t have enough evidence. Therefore, not many people are familiar to topics such as rape during World War II. History concentrated so much on the soldiers and how they survived in the cold, that it forgets about the innocent people who are in the middle of all the chaos. The women and children who get assaulted and violated in a war which they didn’t sign up for.
