If I put my self in his position I wouldn't know what to do I would just die there. The book really express the worst of human and the Dark romanticism it self, by showing the ways mans used to torture it own race. Its well shown the agony, the fear, the spectrum of the pendulum. I can empathize withe feeling of the character of fear of dying and most important of all dying of boredom. I really liked the book because of the detailing and the way the author involves you to the reading and all the word I learned after this
She asks who caused this mess of murder in the world, and who could possibly have the right to allow these injustices occur to wildlife. And just as it seems that the answer is gone from sight, she straightforwardly answers her own barrage of questions: she blames the “authoritarian” (61) who takes “beauty” from nature while the “inattention by millions” causes blindness to this injustice. All of these questions cause the reader to think deeply about the root of the cause, and ultimately enforce her message of a common enemy to
If you haven 't already heard, the Holocaust was basically a Jewish sacrificial offering that is burned completely on an altar. What happened during the holocaust was horrible and after hearing about it the question left in mind is, are humans good at heart, this essay will prove why. We all know that what the Nazi´s are doing is horrible, but, there are still generous people in depressing times. On page 461 Anne states,“ Miep and Mr. Kraler are like our protectors.”Miep and Mr. Kraler represent the kind humans in our society. They are putting themselves at a risk of going to prison or being shot by the Nazi´s just so they could help a couple people.
The speaker is still focused on him/herself as seen in the use of “I” and “me”. The feelings of guilt and grief begin to surface after the speaker’s murderous rampage, they say, “If only they’d all consented to die unseen gassed underground the quiet Nazi way.” This loaded sentence brings the poem full-circle again, speaking of the gassing and referencing Nazis; however, it seems to be a charged accusation to the woodchucks themselves, as if the speaker is accusing them of bringing out all of this evil because they didn’t choose to die easily when the speaker was being
He becomes offended and wonders if Mephistophilis believes that Faustus is “so fond to imagine that after this life there is any pain”. Faustus highlights an interesting idea here, that people who believe there can be any more pain after life itself are foolish as surely the most pain one can ever experience has already been endured during their mortal life. This makes the prospect of hell even more frightening to the audience, who at this stage of the play are quite influenced that hell is a credible notion. As some people have endured unspeakable sorrow throughout their time on earth, it is difficult to comprehend how much worse it could actually get, which is why this play is so effective in painting a terrifyingly convincing picture of hell as it makes people question their preconceived notions about it. Faustus finishes his speech by writing off the notions of hell as “trifles and mere old wives’ tales”.
With injustice and cruelty running rampant in the world, it is unsurprising that people become determined to make things better for tomorrow. The cliché saying that the ends justify the means is often quoted by those aware of the moral greyness of their actions. Commendable yet unreasonable, leaders whose sole purpose in life is to fix what they see as “wrong” with the world fall prey to thinking there is only ally or enemy. In the long run, they harm those they try to liberate. This is the downfall of leaders in many works of literature, including Harrison Bergeron and The Lord of the Flies.
Throughout the book, Liesel discovers the power that words hold and uses them to help her cope with the hardships of living in Nazi Germany as well as to silently resist the dictatorial rule of Adolf Hitler. In the face of extreme evil accompanied by enormous authority, the ability to recognise one’s potential power allows an individual to express their own opinions and build relationships which aids in the ability to persevere and survive the adverse conditions one is living under as well as reduce the power of the oppressor. In The Book Thief, Liesel’s discovery of the power of words lights a fire and curiosity within her that drives her to steal books, but also allows her to see the world in which she is living, in a new light. She is no longer blindly
My family was all killed by the Germans.” (Paragraph 13-15). Actively resisting avoids shame, guilt, and the humiliation of being helpless and sitting and watching your people die. On the flip side, others may argue that music, art, paintings, etc. was enough to protest. The flaw to that argument is that those would only be discovered after the war and only if the allies had won, by however actively arming yourself, killing Nazi’s and, sabotoging supplies the impact would be immediately felt, presenting a better chance of winning.
The Nuremberg Trials held such a great importance for many reasons but the greatest of importance was bringing justice to those who suffered an unimaginable amount pain and despair. Throughout the time of World War II many war crimes were committed, but one that stands out was the treatment of European Jew's. The Nazi's whom were "driven by a racist ideology that regarded Jews as "parasitic vermin" worthy only of eradication, the Nazis implemented genocide on an unprecedented scale" (USHMM). As a way of eradicating the "vermin" "they slated all of Europe's Jews for destruction: the sick and the healthy, the rich and the poor, the religiously orthodox and converts to Christianity, the aged and the young, even infants" (USHMM). The remembrance of the justice to the Holocaust victims the archive displays can be found in many documents throughout, however, the war crimes of the Wehrmacht justice case is one of the many transcripts contained in the archive that truly represents the purpose and importance of the trials.
The world has been dehumanized, life felt as intolerable, the rise of Nazism have forced people to succumb to the beauty of brute force and for a majority that moves with the times there are few that refuse to understand because to understand is to justify. In Rhinoceros, postmodern absurdity has the features of the mass uprising of fascism, the tyranny of a metamorphosis that perceives evil as beauty. Bérenger, an ordinary middle-aged man, a semi-autobiographical figure recurring in few plays expressing the author loss and anguish at the absurdity of reality, watches his friends turning one by one into rhinoceroses, allegory of the consciousness of those who capitulate to the black spell of Nazi-propaganda. Only the idealist Bérenger stands alone unchanged against the violence of mass movement: I’m the last man left, and I’m staying that way until the end. I’m not capitulating.
