His shame for being so selfish and cowardly, while Hassan always was faithful to him. Amir wanted to get rid of Hassan. Therefore, he planted his new watch and some Afghani bills under Hassan’s mattress. He thought Baba would condemn him for this. Although he knew that Amir betrayed him, Hassan said to Baba that he stole the watch and the money.
Adolf HItler assigned Rudolf Hess to many concentration camps where he was in charge of the deaths of many Jewish people. Closing sentence Additionally, Rudolf Hess was willing to do anything to Jewish people. As mentioned before, Rudolf Hess blamed the Jewish people for the defeat in the war. This caused him the mindset of thinking all Jewish people are bad and we need to get rid of them. Rudolf Hess was eager to use barbarous Nazi methods to fight their enemy (Low 105).
Amir strives to redeem himself in Baba’s eyes because his mother died giving birth to him, and he feels responsible for that. To redeem himself to Baba, Amir thinks he must win the kite-tournament and bring Baba the losing kite: Hassan was able to lead a fulfilling life due to his great ability of forgiving others. Hassan has always forgiven Amir. This is shown when Amir quotes Hassan had forgiven Amir after so much time had passed by. Years later, Hassan had written a letter to Rahim Kahn.
Khalid Hussaini portrays the image of Hassan as a Christ figure due to his sacrifice in the wining Kite incident with Assef the Sadist bully, because he refused to hand him the winning kite he had fetched for Amir. Although when he knew that he was going to get hurt or be insulted because Hussaini early in the novel had described Assef as a sadist and a sociopath character and the one who lives because the others fear him and his brass knuckles "years later, I learned an English word for the creature Assef was, a word for which a good Farsi equivalent does not exist: sociopath" , he chooses to sacrifice himself anyway " Assef knelt behind Hassan, put his hands on Hassan 's hips and lifted his bare buttocks, he kept one hand on Hassan 's back and undid his own belt buckle with his free hand, he unzipped his jeans, dropped his underwear, he positioned himself behind Hassan, Hassan didn 't struggle, didn 't even whimper, he moved his head slightly, and I caught a glimpse of his face, Saw the resignation in it, it was a look I had seen before. It was the look of
We all try and “put ourselves in survivors’ shoes” as a way of showing sympathy and kindness, but in reality, we can’t do that. What many survivors had to endure is much beyond our grasp and even our most wild nightmares. It is magnified when you realize that many people who committed these crimes were not even true Nazis but rather common citizens who were, not necessarily, blindly following their government. Hitler was one of the sole people driving the country, he and other Nazis were the “racists” as Elie Wiesel put it while the rest of the country was the “collective judgment”. When Nazis gained power and staged a coup d’état against the German
Adolf Hitler abused his power negatively by killing/torturing many jews and treating everyone but the dominant person in his eyes poorly. He also caused countless other problems naming him as one of the worst leaders in history. Adolf Hitler had a lot of power being the ruler of Nazi Germany, but he used to poorly, with power like that many good can be done but Adolf Hitler used it in a negative way. He used his power to create a genocide against Jews and focus the country towards war instead of improvement of the nation. Adolf Hitler, was an aspiring artist but there was no success coming his way therefore he screened for Austrian military service in 1914, and was put into war when world war 1 started, being deployed in october 1914 to Belgium.
He was subsequently to this made leader Hitler then tried to overthrow the government but failed and was sent to prison. Hitler and Stalin’s early lives are very similar: tough, dreadful, And may of influenced their lives afterwards. Hitler and Stalin’s belief were very different, Hitler believed the Aryan race was superior, that German blood should to be polluted by people that were not perfect at his eyes, blood from other countries, Jews,
As Goebbels worked hard on the propaganda campaign, the Jews found themselves facing a huge surge of hated towards them by the public. Hitler can be held responsible for the burning of Jewish businesses, creating Jewish ghettos and distributed ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ a book which claimed that the Jews were trying to takeover the world. Propaganda at the hands of the Nazi’s can be said to have played a huge role in the responsibility for the Holocaust. The promotion of anti-Semitic beliefs which got the majority of the public on the Nazi’s side meant that ordinary people were seeing that the extermination of the Jews was taking place and either didn’t do anything about it or helped play a role. This can be because of fear, of what would happen to them if they either rebelled or didn’t contribute.
It is extremely important to prosecute the criminals as a way of remembering the Holocaust victims and knowing what they went through. “Everywhere in the world, there is an obscene attempt by people who call themselves historians who dare to deny the deaths of the victims. Who dares to tell me my parents were not killed in the camps” (Wiesel 6). This shows that many people disbelieve in the Holocaust; therefore they are forgetting the horrendous things done to the victims. It is very important to remember the tragedy that the Holocaust caused in order for it to not happen again.
If Amir had not abandoned Hassan after the kite race, Baba would have been able to watch his son grow up to be a man. On the day Amir graduates from high school, Baba wishes that “Hassan [could have] been with [them] today” (133). Baba misses Hassan dearly and his heart breaks to not witness Hassan growing into a man. When Amir refrains from standing up for Hassan, he inevitably causes Hassan and Baba’s permanent separation. Additionally, before they are engaged, Soraya tells Amir about her tragic backstory, fearing rejection and desertion.
