Many lives were lost during the German’s attempt to wipe out all Jews, and those who lived lost a part of their life during this time. The young boys lost their childhood and ‘innocences’. They witness more death and suffering than anywhere in the country. Today, there is still death and violence against others.
1. Ishmael Beah’s violent experiences educated me about what the intended outcomes or aftermaths of violence are. One of these is causing unrest and coercing the government to change policies and abide to their terms. Another one is making people afraid and thereby establishing dominance. Another effect it can have is making people feel ashamed of their own powerlessness of being unable to save themselves, their families, and their friends.
The article, Fighting Against Hitler, by Lauren Tarshis, describes How a boy named Ben was a jew and many times he was close to getting killed, he then was a partisan. When Ben Kamm was in his early teen years Adolf Hitler was planning on his annihilation of all jews in Europe. When the time of the annihilation came The Nazis and Hitler were burning and/or vandalizing any jewish owned businesses. Jews were not even aloud to step foot in public parks, libraries or leave there house after 5pm. That is what Fighting Against Hitler, by Lauren Tarshis, is about.
In Night one of the ways that the Jews were dehumanized was by abuse. There were beatings, “I never felt anything except the lashes of the whip... Only the first really hurt.” (Wiesel, 57) “They were forced to dig huge trenches. When they had finished their work, the men from the Gestapo began theirs.
All throughout his essay he uses juxtaposition to compel the audience the consequences for violent and the benefits for non violent methods. He states “When victory comes through
Violence did not need to be performed for the advocate to get their point across. Ghandi states “No country has ever become, or will ever become, happy through the victory in war. A nation does not rise that way, it only falls further.” (Gandhi 377). He simply wants his followers to know that war does not bring happiness.
When they found out Hitler was bad they would anything to stop even though they could go to jail. For example, Kristin lewis says, “ His job was to disturbed those leaflets throughout the city, to stuff them in mailboxes and leave them on park benches. He expected the Gestapo - terrifying Nazi police- to jump out of the shadows at any moment.” This proves that they risked their lives because of what they were doing. This shows that the police would arrest them if they get caught then they could then they could go to jail, a labour camp, or get shot and killed.
After Germany’s loss in World War I, Adolf Hitler was appointed the chancellor of Germany. He blamed all the world’s problems on the Jews, and explained how they needed to be exterminated in his speech about International Jewry. During his speech, the crowd loved what he had to say, and they too believed that Jews were a menace to society. Hitler was able to persuade them that killing them would do the world a favor, which established an ethnic tension (Doc I). This shows how genocide is also a result from rivalries between different groups of people.
Conflict resolution as a field of study as indicated has formed hypothetical bits of knowledge into the nature and source of conflict and how conflicts can be resolved through peaceful systems to effectuate a dependable settlement. Morton Deutsch, was the first to form and understanding into the helpful results of collaboration as a scholastic enquiry. In his view, various variables like the way of the debate and the objectives every group in a conflict goes for are crucial in deciding the sort of introduction a group would convey to the negotiation table in its endeavor to unravel the conflict (Morton Deucth, 1985, p.24). To him, two essential orientations do exist. These are competitive and cooperative.
The first way Hitler used education to make Nazis was changing textbooks to Nazi textbooks. Hitler did this by throwing out old ones and creating Nazi ones. Paragraph 10 states, “ They rewrote the curriculum from top to bottom, so that it only taught Nazi approved
During the Holocaust, a great number of brave individuals wondered whether they should have reacted to the Nazi forces through passive or violent acts of resistance. Any form of resistance was vital for even the slightest possibility of survival for the jews. In “Resistance During the Holocaust”, “The Diary of Anne Frank”, and “Violins of Hope,” it gave real examples of Jewish people who chose to arm themselves and fight the Nazis head on or Jews who opted for passivity in order to hide their loved ones. Nevertheless, the main goal of these methods for resistance was to defy the enemy at hand that was the Nazi party. Therefore, people can best respond to conflict by active resistance in order to avoid late shame and humiliation, escape the
The reason Teachers were quitting at such a drastic rate was mainly due to the fact that they were getting a lot less money under the reign of Hitler. Before Hitler’s reign teachers would be paid 2,000 marks a year but when Hitler came into power teachers were only getting 1680 marks per year. To try and fix this problem the German government brought in unpaid substitutes that were willing to work for a very small amount of
