Every page is littered with the horrors and trials these individuals faced at this wretched time in history where a whole race was nearly eradicated at the hand of a tyrannical leader that manipulated millions. Now all we can do is learn from the past, educate our youth of these injustices and not allow the past to repeat
This anecdote is a powerful way to describe the horrors that they faced. They went through prosecution, experiments, and death. Gypsy twins who were at auschwitz went through horrible events that were conducted by Josef Mengele. These ghastly experiences will forever leave these people scared physically and mentally for the rest of their lives, and the phantoms of these terrors will forever haunt everyone
The military in Burma just as hitler, put people in dire living conditions and had no regard for their well being. The Burmese military even went as far as killing people. Aung San Suu kyi saw what the military was doing to Burma and she stepped in, like some tried to do during the holocaust. Like Hitler, the Burmese military took out the people that disagreed with them and they saw as a
In Night, Eliezer "Elie" Wiesel's shares his experience as a 15 year old boy. It is a memoir of extraordinary power: his humanity shines through every page as he stands a witness to the tragedy which befell the Jewish race at the hands of the Nazis. He calls himself a "messenger of the dead among the living" through his literary witness. The concentration camp there shocks everyone with its cruelty and coldness to life.
Out of the two world wars, World War II is known to be the bloodiest and brutal war. The main reason this is to believed is because to the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the time period where many were persecuted for their beliefs and race. Hitler is who is to blame for the Holocaust, he is the one who organized all the horrific things done to the people who did not fall under his Master Race. Despite the many theories about the purpose of the Holocaust, the real purpose make those who weren’t members of the Master Race fear the Nazi Regime, to force them to obey the Nazi’s without question.
Ellie Wiesel proves this theory true with his use of the word night in his book “Night”. During World War II Adolf Hitler sentenced the Jews to concentration camps to endure hard labor. Also known as the Holocaust. Wiesel was a survivor of the Holocaust. The Holocaust was full of monsters and dark times.
Rather than giving away his rations of food, Eliezer learns that he needs to do anything he can to ensure his survival, while he remains at the concentration camps. Furthermore, Eliezer experienced evil in a way like no other. As the prisoners were forced to move to another camp during winter, they would be shot if they fell behind. In chapter six it said, “They had orders to shoot anyone who could not sustain the pace.”
“They w forced to dig huge trenches. When they had finished their work, the men from the gestapo began theirs. Without passion or haste, they shot their prisoners, who were forced to approach the trench one by one and offer their necks (Wiesel 6).” Moishe warned the people what was happening the thought of him as a mad man. “They think I am mad (Moishe 7),” the people did not believe his stories.
Seeds of Hatred Bloomed “In my will it will one day be written that nothing is to be engraved on my tombstone but ‘Adolf Hitler.’ I shall create my own title for myself in my name itself”-Adolf Hitler. Hitler’s actions during World War II fulfilled his words. His name brings memories of totalitarian dictatorship, cruel torture, and mass murder of millions of innocent people, Germans and Jews alike.
These violations are being compared to the holocaust, “This may sound like Nazi Germany, but these are the horrors being lived through in North Korea today” (Walters, G.). North Korea has around thirty concentration camps where a lot of brutality occurs. The people are brainwashed to worship their ‘Dear Leader’ despite the physical privations and mental tortures they have suffered. Their leader is presented as a god.
I learned a lot of new information while reading Night, there were many things I didn’t know about the Holocaust before that I know about now. I never knew much about the conditions of the camps or how the people were treated there, I just knew that they were dreadful places. Now I can have an image of the camps in my head, what it looked like for the people who had to live in these horrendous camps. They committed so many execrable acts on people, they performed experiments on people, murdered whoever they wanted, starved people and many more gruesome things. I didn’t realize how bad the conditions really were and how badly the people were treated.
POW camps have always been found during wars as warriors are captured. From the Egyptians who used the captured enemy combatants as workers, to the Terrorists who use them for information. They are known to be cruel and inescapable. They strike fear into those who have lived there. These camps were believed to be a place where even the Devil wouldn’t dare go.
Nicaragua silences journalists and academics for its students and the Philippines holds extrajudicial killings. Poland hosts propaganda on their media to influence its people and Turkey has mass arrests. Zambia has a restrictive environment ("Puddington, Arch"). As you can see, more and more people are becoming less free. The Middle East is reflecting the uprising of other countries.
The travel ban that President Donald Trump has created is similar to that of Adolf Hitler when he threw millions of Jews in concentration camps. Men, women, children and elderly are being mistreated in their own country and Trump simply does not want to let them into the safe place that is America. Only because he is afraid of terrorists, if so, what is the point in security then? These are two laws that I believe Donald Trump has violated; the right to asylum and the right that no one can take these rights from us.
Night, by Elie Wiesel is a narrative of his personal sadness, horror, and loss. The tragedy of the Holocaust is something that is hard to comprehend, and hopefully the world will never have to experience that terror and heartbreak again. Though it is hard for those of us who were not involved to understand it fully, Elie Wiesel’s retelling gives the audience a heart wrenching look into his terrifying memories and experiences during World War II. This narrative is full of themes and image patterns of a variety of different subjects, including the theme of soup. There are many ideas people have when they think of soup, such as the simplicity of the dish, the warmth it provides, and even healing when one is sick.
