When a select group of people are treated as less than human, there are consequences for everyone: the victims, the victimizers and the bystanders. The book Night by Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor, contains many examples of people 's Universal Human Rights being violated in the depths of concentration camps. Those examples show how victims of this are dehumanized little by little every time those rights are violated. Almost all 30 rights were violated throughout the book, but a few were violated on a more frequent basis and they did the most harm. The more frequent rights violated from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights were articles five, six and seventeen, and this essay will explain how these human rights dehumanized inhabitants
They held the highest population in all and every camp. In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”.They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
Many actions played out during the Holocaust and World War II were not humane, and still remind us like a scream behind closed doors: hidden but still heard. While hearing the horrid stories and seeing the ghoulish photos of times not to be forgotten, we see the tragedy that is the mistreatment of human lives. Our identities are lost little by little, but those victims had theirs ripped from their bodies. After losing everything and then becoming a nearly empty vessel, it is amazing that we attempt to comprehend the cruelty of the Holocaust. The loss of identity and self might have started with Adolf Hitler’s reign, for the Holocaust legacies, but we are all losing bits of ourselves constantly.
The rise of Hitler was an important event in history that expresses a terrible way of racism and hatred. Many bad things happened to many people because of the events that took place during the rise of Hitler. Tons of people died and families were broken up and never seen each other again. In To Kill a Mockingbird also express hatred and racism in terrible ways and are extremely racist. Adolf Hitler was the leader/dictator of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945, He was born in Austria in 1889.
They began to listen to Nazi propaganda (Christie). Because freedom of speech was allowed in the German Constitution, the Nazi Party was able to spread propaganda and their views to the German people (Christie). The Nazis used propaganda and claimed that Germany had been “stabbed in the back” in the Treaty of Versailles and WWI. They blamed these on the German politicians (Christie). France occupied part of Germany because they could not pay reparations and were issued sanctions, so more and more Germans sided with the Nazis (Christie).
World War II was a brutal and long war. It showed the world evils unimaginable, and millions lost their lives because of it. Jews and other groups were sent to concentration camps and death camps. Because of it, the world was forever changed, but WWII didn’t just happen overnight. There are many factors that helped start the war.
They beat Hitler and Hirohito in the biggest war the world has ever seen. Without the United States, England and the Soviet Union would have likely fallen to Germany and Japan. Those two countries did horrible things during the war including the Holocaust, the Bataan Death March, Japanese Cannibalism, burying people alive, sexual slavery, perfidy, and executing POW. If this generation didn’t win this war the world would be massively different. The world would be an evil place ruled by fascism and militarism.
Fear Mongering and hatred often go hand in hand. When a group of people begin blindly fearing a group of people, they will quickly lead to an unjustified hatred of said group. One of the main examples of this came from the Holocaust. Much like the Holocaust, the Crucible featured people blindly hating people because of pointless fears, Also, they both feature an extremely biased government system in which the victim is not as well represented as they should be. During the times of the holocaust, some groups of people blamed the jews for the economic downfall of Germany, so they rose against them and began fighting against them, fueled by a leader who hated them more than anyone else.
According to the texts, The Holocaust had a negative effect on the people who lived through it. Jews were first made to fear the Gestapo so greatly that they felt that they were told what to do and had to do it. They were put in concentration camps and Ghettos where they were treated horribly and were badly abused. Soon enough, 6 to 9 million people died as a result of the Holocaust. According to the three texts, Holocaust survivors suffered negative effects due to the fact they had been abused, lost loved ones and treated as less than human.
What ended one war, began another. The Treaty of Versailles was the main cause of World War II due to the restrictions it put on Germany. It limited their land, cut back their military, forced them to pay for damages, and brought a sense of guilt and embarrassment over all of the German population. In turn the Germans became angry and the result of that anger was what we call today, World War II, or The Great War. This war that lasted four long years with many casualties may have prevented if not for the Versailles
The Jews and those of the oppressed were crying out, “How was it possible that man, woman, and children were being burned and that the world kept silent? No. All this could not be real. A nightmare perhaps... (32).” These outcasts of the “Aryan race” arguably experienced the worst this world has to offer, unspeakable and unbearable conditions to even exist in, they lived in the end of hope; they cried out with their only breath for this world to listen, just as the smoke consumed their hope, their lives, and their existence. Grimly, these “inmates of the European prison” faced not only a physical torture/murder of their bodies, but also a crushing blow to their mind, soul, and faith throughout the second war of the world.
The Nazi party targeted Jews, Gypsies, Poles and other Slavs, and people with physical or mental disabilities. Others were Nazi victims because of what they did. These victims of the Nazi regime included Jehovah 's Witnesses, homosexuals, the dissenting clergy, Communists, Socialists, asocials, and other political enemies. A big group other than the jews that were targeted by the Nais were Gypsies. Many gypsies lived in Germany and were always considered inferior by others mostly because they were different.
Shown through the Holocaust, concentration camps, and immigration, it was proven that Jews during World War II were some of the most harshly treated people of all time. The Holocaust is one of the most devastating events in human history as the Nazi’s killed millions. Most Jews were thrown into labor facilities known as Concentration camps, and it is shocking the amount of horrific happenings inside of these camps. For the ones that tried to escape Nazi occupation, the Jewish people had to hide and flee, however it was also a struggle to make it into another country. Throughout history there have been many terrible events and wars, however WWII proved to be one of the cruelest times there ever will be, and the Jews suffered the most during this time.
The death camps were places where the detainees would be taken into chambers where toxic gas would be released and the prisoners would just drop dead. The “Final Solution” was one of the key elements that the Nazi Society believed in. Though at the beginning of the Nazi occupation of Europe work camps were the places where the prisoners were forced to work long grueling hours, later in the occupation they started to use death camps to help them in the “Final Solution”. According to the U.S Holocaust Memorial Museum, “Millions of people were imprisoned and abused in the various types of Nazi camps. Under SS management, the Germans and their collaborators murdered more than three million Jews in the killing centers alone.
Homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Romans, and people who were disabled were all some of the groups targeted during the Holocaust. The Holocaust was deadly and brutal for the millions of people who had to endure the concentration camps and face terror from the Nazis. When the Anti-Semitic leader Adolf
