The night of Kristallnacht and the rising tensions between our community forced our family to flee to the french border city of Natzwiller. Our family was strong in business as we were successful in revolution and our small workshop grew into a family empire as generations of Schneider lived to keep our proud business open through the wars and the depression.

“I became A-7713. From then on, I had no other name.” For many Jewish people in the time of the Holocaust, this was the case. As the Nazis attacked the Jews, they treated them harshly. No matter how old or young or whether they were a male or female, they were treated like animals. The Nazis believed that Jews were a nuisance to them. In the book Night, they describe events that happened to one individual, Eliezer Wiesel. The three acts of dehumanization in Night are how the Jews were forced out of Sighet,how all families were separated, and having to travel by foot in freezing conditions.
Finding one passion could be tricky. Sometimes we confuse passion with skills, passion is something that you do and enjoy no matter how tired or even if it doesn’t make you a millionaire. Skills are something that you are good at but you don’t enjoy, one will continue on this path because we need to pay our bills. This doesn’t make it right or wrong but we should be happy with ourselves doing what we enjoy.
Two extremely differentiating documents of the Holocaust relay to their audience unlike tones, yet similar purposes. Both authors use specific writing tolls to share their insightful information about the Holocaust with their audience. Devil's Arithmetic, by Jane Yolen, concerns the inexplicable the inexplicable dehumanization of people in death camps. The fact that she is a Jew in real life contributes to the tone of compassion through pure demoralization. However, Peter Fischl poem, “To The Little Boy Standing With His Arms Up,” has a tone of regret, ignorance, and what it is to be a bystander, Both authors have a universal message. They want us to think, react, understand, teach, remember, learn, and respect the disheartening tragedy of the holocaust.
Since elementary school, teachers have planned lesions to teach their students about the Holocaust in an age appropriate way. Stories from the Holocaust have been documented and told over and over again so people are aware of the horrific events. The Holocaust and other stories about Genocides will never be forgotten and will be continued being told to young students to raise awareness. From learning about these events in school, these stories can be honored, warnings are brought to student’s attention, and now students can take part in preventing these horrible acts.
In 1920 the Reichstag, which was the German government at the time, passed a law, stating all children aged 6-14 must go to school. In the schools the Nazi’s were ordered to concentrate especially on propaganda for youth. They focused on the children from such a young age because they found it was much easier to alter their way of thinking. They did this because they saw the children as the future citizens of the “Thousand year Reich”. The “Thousand year Reich” was Hitler’s prediction that his ideas would last 1000 years in Nazi Germany. In this essay we discuss how the education was affected by the rule of Hitler.
The article “Teens Against Hitler” by Lauren Tarshis, describes the great challenges Ben, his family, and many other Jewish families faced over the rule of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis amid World War II.
Despite all the terrible things that jews faced I believe their is still humanity in this world. Humanity is described as being selfless and helping others and I truly believe we still have people that are like this. A wartime hero during the holocaust was a man named Raoul Wallenberg. Wallenberg helped save over an estimated 100,000 people from the Nazis by issuing fake passports and housing jews. This was a pure act of humanity and compassion. Raoul didn 't care if he would be punished or killed but instead made a selfless act to help another person. There were many cases just like this one and i think it really just shows that we still have humanity. Because of people like Raoul I believe we will always have light and not fall completely into
Learning about the Holocaust has made me release how fortunate I am to have all the freedoms I have. This project has also made me think about how we need to keep someone like Hitler from ever coming into power again. Not just in our country but in every country in the

Reading A Long Way Gone, a book about child soldiers, in Sierra Leone during the 1990’s made me feel disgusted because of the treatment of the young children. Reading about the most disturbing sequence in life, dealing with children my age or under made me realize how much life means. I could not imagine ever going through anything that will determine my life well-being. This made me look forward to more in life and appreciate the life I do live, because everyone doesn't have it like I do.
