With such dreadful conditions, the Jews began initiating resistance and uprisings. Even though the prisoners knew loss was unquestionable, they fought bravely and certain. The Jews wanted the future generation to know that they would never give up without a fight. The Nazi officers kept watch of the prisoners every second; the inhumanity of the guards murdered the spirit of the Jews. Because of the environment of the camps, a countless number of Jews died every day. The conditions while working in camps made resistance strenuous, yet the Jews still desired to disobey. Since a large amount of Jews resisted at work, the Nazis punished those who never meant to cause any harm. Resistance came in many forms during the Holocaust, whether it was organized

The book Daniel’s Story describes events that happened during the Holocaust through a fictional character, Daniel. The way the Nazis treated the Jewish people was awful and cruel. Many of these actions made me sick to my stomach, knowing that this actually happened. From his uncle’s ashes being sent in the mail, people beating up the Jews, a SS officer shooting a young boy, and the living conditions of the Jews in the ghetto, these are some of the events that were horrifying.
In a span of 10 years, the Holocaust killed over 7 million people, that’s just as much as the population of Hong Kong. In the book Night, by Elie Wiesel, Wiesel shares his experience on how he survived the Holocaust and what he went through. How he dealt with the horrors and even to how he felt of his dad’s death and how he saw himself after it was all over. As he tried to publish it he was constantly turned down due to the fact of how horrid and truful it was. He still tried and tried until it was finally published. This book shows how the Holocaust should be taught and not be forgotten, due to it being a prime example of human impureness. Humans learn off trial and error, how the Jewish population was affected, decrease in moral, and the unsettled tension are prime examples of such mistakes.
Hope is a helpful tool to push people through the hardest times in life. In the book Night by Elie Wiesel, there are numerous examples of hope helping people and revitalizing their confidence. People used hope to help them through rough times. People hope that friends and family are still alive. Also hope that the Front liberates the camps and frees everyone. Hope can help people get through the hardest obstacles in life.
The abuse of human life that has happened over the course of history is something that no one should have ever experienced, although similar violence still goes on today. It is a question to ask as in the book Night, “Can this be true? This is the twentieth century, not the Middle Ages. Who would allow such crimes to be committed?” Although people have grown over time to accept people of different color, religion and believes there is still hate crimes in the world today. My paragraphs are going to take about the differences and similarities of the two books Night and Prisoner B-3087.
Many authors usually write about people during the Holocaust so readers get informed with what happened. A 14 year old boy named Daniel was forced to leave germany due to the Nazis in 1933. Daniel is on a long journey where he faces multiple conflicts and meets new people.

Daniel's Story by Carol Matas is a fiction story where conflicts arise and characters change.
Elie Wiesel went through one of the hardest periods of time any man has ever encountered, and lived through to tell about it. The Holocaust was truly one of the most horrific events of discrimination, persecution, and genocide. Elie reveals his story through Eliezer in his novel Night. Some would expect a man who has gone through such terrible times to lack in perseverance and kindness. However, Wiesel displays his willpower, faith, morals, and bond to his father throughout this dark and eye-opening book.
The guest speaker at the Illinois Holocaust Museum posed an unanswerable question to the dozen Chabad eighth-grade boys sitting in front of him. Mitchell Winthrop, 88 years of age, a survivor of the Auschwitz and Mauthausen Nazi concentration camps, had been raised in a secular Jewish home in Lodz, Poland. Why had he, he asked the boys—someone who hadn’t even had a bar mitzvah—been chosen to survive the Holocaust and not his pious, white-bearded grandfather?

“We now have a voice for those who don’t.” During the Holocaust, seven million people died, six million which were Jews, and they will never be able to tell their stories. Emotional and physical heartbreak was created and needed to be recognized to express the truth. Elie Wiesel wrote Night to show his journey throughout The Holocaust. He published Night twenty three years later, terrified to relive the moments in his writing. But he knew somebody needed to stand up for the deceased. Somebody needed to be their voice. The distress was all around and needed to be told. The Holocaust is the worst event in history that dehumanized human beings, causing millions of deaths that can never happen again. We need to be their voice to express the truth
A) The meaning of this word ?he? is that he is using the third person for something that was about him. He starts his essays by telling the story of a young boy; the readers do not know who this boy is, this will make them curious, it will draw the attention. The author used this as a hook
Have you ever thought about what the Japanese population during world war ll felt like, or what they went through when they were forced into internment camps? Well back then or maybe even now people didn’t think about how horrible it would have been for all of those people in the camps, or they just didn’t care. No one should have to go through such an awful experience like that, it was wrong what the U.S. did.
Many know of the victims of the Holocaust and how fragile they were, but not many know how the few that survived did so.

Eliezer explains how he overcomes the horrors he witnessed in order to survive and be freed. Through cautious behavior, selflessness between himself and his father, and having physical advantages due to his age, Wiesel is able to survive the harsh conditions while millions of others perish.
