“We received no food. We lived on snow; it took the place of the bread.” (Wiesel pg 100) For every individuals hair that is kept in the case at the memorial museum in Auschwitz, needs a voice. These human beings were killed in horrible dehumanizing ways. They were ordered to either the gas chambers or the crematorium; or they died because of their bad health. “We did not know, as yet, which was the better side, right or left, which road led to prison and which led to the crematorium” (Wiesel pg 32) Innocent people were tricked into walking right into the gas chambers.
The Japanese had done many ruthless things towards other countries, and they did not have a bomb there, so they could not do anything to defend themselves. Although there are many reasons to drop the bomb on Hiroshima, there were just as many reasons as why the bomb should not have been dropped. The bomb killed 60,000-80,000 people, and most of those civilians had nothing to do with the war. As the years went on, many more people died, which was caused by illnesses from radiation exposure. Even if people survived the bombing, their children would also be affected.
Triangle Shirtwaist Company was a main manufacturer who did not take kindly of the strike. They used police officers, to imprison the female workers on strike, while they paid the government officials to take the other girls away. On March, 25, while the workers worked, a fire began to start in the rag bin. A manager tried to put the fire out, but the fire spread rapidly and the hose did not work, due to the holes punched in the sides(Stein). As the fire escalated, the young women began to panic, and as the young women tried to escape on the elevator, they realized that the elevator could only hold 12 people, and the elevator broke down in the heat and flames.
He called his father to tell him that “the staircases collapsed… we are stuck here”(Dwyer and Flynn 111). Unfortunately, hundreds of people shared the same experience as Milanowycz and had nowhere to go as a result of blocked staircases. In addition to the design and staircases, the lack of fireproofing in the Twin Towers further supports the claim that the inadequate construction of the tower was the greatest contributing factor to loss of life. The fireproofing was not sufficient to begin with and had never even been tested. After the 1993 bombing, the Port Authority began to replace it but had
Chris intimidated Martha but she challenged him on the issue of understating accounting policies and got fired on June 26, 2005. The brothers lack knowledge, disregard for the rule of law, and unethical practices will contribute to their demise, which became apparent after firing Martha. Martha reported all the illegal activities in the business from under age hiring, hiring of illegal immigrants, falsifying wage reports and discriminating of employees. The lack of internal management is a real crisis for Plato’s Diner. Chris and Dean did not separate personal money from business money.
Commentary #4. The most important theme of Fahrenheit 451 is restriction of freedom of speech because of the fear to offend another person in the society. There are strict censorship laws in the totalitarian society of Fahrenheit 451. In the novel the job of a fireman is to start a fire and watch the forbidden literature burn, these firemen had never read the books they burn nor were they all allowed to keep one for more than 24 hours. “It was a pleasure to burn”, the opening line of Fahrenheit 451 clearly states that the destructive firemen enjoyed lighting fires.
Cormac McCarthy’s novel The Road, follows a boy, and a man struggling to survive in a dystopian world. After the apocalypse, many people panicked and did what they thought was the best thing to do for them to survive. This ultimately lead to a world filled with suicides, murders, crimes and even cannibalism. When this event took place, it ended up wiping out almost everything; there was no plants, no animals, and barley any food left for the remaining people left on the plant. Ultimately everyone lost hope.
The Nazis “forbid the Jehovah’s Witnesses to meet together to study God's word and worship him” (Document 1). This was not a huge deal Hitler was just trying to separate them, however, these punishments continued to get worse. Nazis would hunt down Jehovah’s Witnesses and put them into concentration camps. In the concentration camps, they were tortured and killed. Along with this the conditions were terrible and they were not properly fed and cleaned, and they were forced to do hard jobs and labor.
These punishments did no good. Locking people up in gas chambers did no good. Nazis would lock up innocent people in gas chambers (they were told that they would be taking a shower) and kill them with a chemical, which was originally meant for pesticide control called Zyklon B… Also mass shooting were a horrible punishment for just being yourself. They would just shoot large amount of people. Around 17000 were killed in one day because of mass shootings.
