Some people may call him crazy, but I think he is very brave for fighting for the lives of Jews and other people that were being put in those camps. “The younger brother of Hermann Goering is being considered for an honor given to those who saved the lives of Jews during the Holocaust.” He is so amazing that he was nominated and given an award for saving all of those lives, he may not be alive today, but he will be remembered for all of the things he did for all of those people. After the war, many lives were permanently changed, some scarred. Albert had a beautiful wife, named Mila, and they had a child, name unknown, but they were divorced after the war. His life was destroyed because of all the things that had happened to him during the war, “..Albert Goering found it hard to shake off the stigma of the family name and became depressed and alcoholic after the war.” He and his brother, Hermann, became somewhat close again, but their relationship was never the
They went through a lot of challenges and risked their lives to make this plan work. The revolt which saved about fifty Jews is nothing compared to the six million Jews that were killed throughout the Holocaust. However, the revolt was effective because it proved that the Nazi extermination camps were not perfect. This led to the survival of fifty people who would leave a legacy. This revolt probably led to many other resistances in many other camps during the
Night by Elie Wiesel takes place in a very tragic time period the Holocaust. In the book humanity is what saves Elie along with the others this gives them the will to live. Others argue that this is not what keeps Elie and the others alive, but they are very wrong. “Make and effort Zalman...Try…”(Wiesel 86) As Elie risks his own life to help Zalman this shows a tremendous amount of humanity.
An example of humans taking care of each other is when Death says about Hans Hubermann, “A Jew had once saved his life and he couldn’t forget that. He couldn’t join such a party that antagonized people in such a way” (Zusak 180). This explains how Hans Hubermann cares about the Jews and feels like he owes them back. He takes action by hiding Max Vandenburg in return. He knows that a Jew had once saved his life so he feels he needs to pay him back.
He thought it wasn’t right and thought it needed to be brought to an end. Oskar Schindler was a rescuer in the Holocaust, saving countless Jewish lives. He did this because he saw the wrongness of the Nazis and knew the Jewish were innocent. Oskar Schindler was a rescuer in the Holocaust era saving countless Jew’s from concentration camps by “buying” them and giving them a home and safe workplace. Oskar
The Holocaust impacted Vladek’s life by affecting his views on topics such as money, connecting with his own son, and not being able to open up and create relationships with others. Vladek’s survival in the Holocaust changed him for both the better and the worse; Vladek’s resourcefulness stuck with him during the Holocaust and after the Holocaust. He has a large amount of money in his bank account because he always saves his money. But, The Holocaust affected Vladek by not being able to create connections with others. Throughout the text, Vladek is seen trying hard to connect with Artie so he can learn to protect himself but Artie does nothing but push him away because his only motive to be with his father is to write his comic book and in Mala’s case, Vladek isn’t in love with her.
The imminent threat of death is present but the idea of a fruitless future becomes an unbearable possibility. Moral courage allows for the display of strength through selfless actions against injustice. During the Holocaust many injustices were made against the Jewish community. Personal diaries account for the hardships of those persecuted in Hitler's final solution. As bad as Hitler’s attempts to restore Germany's power were, they managed to bring out the best of some people.
Despite that 11 million people died in the Holocaust, many people survived as well. It is the survivors who have helped us truly understand what really happened in the concentration camps in the Second World War. However, how can we know for sure that we know the whole truth? The survivors are not the same people and therefore have different perspectives of what really happened and have experienced different events. Therefore different narration helps us get closer to the truth about the concentration camps, by emphasizing the tragedy from different angles that gives us a wider perspective.
This made the town around it look better and more people wanted to live there. This evidence helps explain why Carnegie was a hero because he helped all of the local people by providing them with plenty of jobs. It is true there is another side to the argument. For example, a lot of people said that Carnegie was two faced because he was cutting his employees wages and at the same time he was donating millions of dollars to charities. People say that he only gave away his money to make himself look better.
Oskar Schindler used the Nazi party to save many people. To begin with, he got a factory, for a low price, to start a business. As proof, “In 1939, Schindler acquired an enamelware factory in Poland…” (Pompilio 1). When he bought this factory he did not realize that he would save people’s lives. Additionally, Jews were lucky to be hired to work in his factory.
Why didn’t the US go rescue these Jews? FDR was supported by a large percentage of the Jewish population. We could have let more of them in as refugees or reached other compromises. On the other hand, we have arguments saying that Hitler, Nazi, or Germany was responsible since they were the perpetrator, and the perpetrator is always the culprit. They did it so naturally their most to blame for what happens, which seems like common sense for most people.
However, A Lucky Child provides a different perspective on the Holocaust. As the title indicates, it is a book about how Buergenthal was able to outlast the most infamous concentration camp: Auschwitz. It is an inspiring story and puts the reader into perspective about all the children who had been killed during the Holocaust, yet he had survived. If it wasn’t for the day that Thomas stood in a brave manner and stated to a commandant that he could work, Thomas would have suffered the same fate that a majority of children during the Holocaust by dying. There was no purpose for
I believe Tadeusz is a righteous person due to his extreme effort to help save the Abrahamers. Even though Tadeusz believed it was a “human obligation” to save the Jews, I believe he is one of the Tzadikim. He does not realize how much he is helping Jews by hiding them and risking his life. None of the commentaries we learn give Noah enough credit for what they could do today or in other generations. Although Tadeusz generation was not one of the best, he still probably would do other righteous things in other generations.
The final solution may didn’t get brought up much or even seemed important, but really it was the columns to the Nazis house. In other words, without the idea of the final solution the Nazis would’ve never had a motive. Maybe could’ve even prevented the war. But they did have the idea and with that idea came the deaths of many. In total, german authorities and their collaborators killed up to six million Jews.
