The SS men have replaced their captives original names for irrelevant numbers as shown in the following quote, “I became A-7713. From then on, I had no other name.” (Wiesel 42). This quotation explains the intended impact the SS men desired for the Jewish prisoners to believe. The artificial belief the SS men implanted into the minds of all their prisoners is that they are insignificant and unworthy of a name. This deteriorates an individual's emotional well being and will to live which leads to an unjustified faith.
Elie Wiesel said "combat indifference, intolerance and injustice¨(Biography 2). When Cesar Chavez stood up for what is right just because the Hispanics had different skin color or came from a different place doesn 't mean they should get treated unfairly and the holocaust did bad things to innocent people because they had different faiths. Chavez is standing up for what is right and making a strike how people were put in the camps in the Holocaust what the similarities are between them what the differences are between them conclusively about the holocaust and Chavez. Chavez said "Without a union, the people are always cheated, and they are so innocent,"(found from nrp 1) Cesar liked helping people a lot he thought it was
Why was this permitted? Wiesel pinpoints the indifference of humans as the real enemy, causing further suffering and lost to those already in peril. Wiesel commenced the speech with an interesting attention getter: a story about a young Jewish from a small town that was at the end of war liberated from Nazi rule by American soldiers. This young boy was in fact himself. The first-hand experience of cruelty gave him credibility in discussing the dangers of indifference; he was a victim himself.
Naive A hopeless case, that is what Bruno was a hopeless case cause Bruno was the actual hopeless case cause Bruno was naive about the Holocaust and he was marched straight into a gas chamber and killed, and it was bad because his father should have told him about out-with and all the dangers it had to do with the kids and Bruno still might have meet Shmuel but would not have helped him find his papa. Bruno being naive about the Holocaust was bad because his father should have told him the Jews were bad people and he would have had a different mindset towards Shmuel. The father thought that the Jews were bad people. He thought this because he was under the fuhrer command and was told that they were bad people
In chapter one of Elie Wiesel’s memoir, Night, his purpose behind his use of excessive tragic irony is to display the astonishing amount of innocence and unawareness the Jews have about the Germans’ plans. For instance, Wiesel displays the Jews’ ignorance when he writes, ““There was joy, yes joy. People must have thought there could be no greater torment in God’s hell than that of being stranded here, on the sidewalk” (16). This exemplifies how the Jews truly believe that the situation was going to get better. This is tragically ironic because their situation was not going to get better, it was going to get much worse.
Afterwards, when Gladys questions why the narrator would want to visit a place notorious for criminals instead of enjoying the attractions that London has to offer, he replies that he is a criminal since he has murdered someone. Gladys is brainwashed by propaganda and so believes that killing an enemy soldier in combat is not really murder and that the narrator is a “silly boy” for thinking so. Since the narrator had been harshly emotionally affected by his murder of the German soldier, it would have irritated him that Gladys so easily dismissed it. Furthermore, Generals Die in Bed manages to convey that the feeble benefits of war do not outweigh the immense suffering of the soldiers. The soldiers try to calculate the amount of money that the war is costing and are only able to conclude that it is a lot of money.
The sensation and pain of being called a number is far more demeaning. The fact that S.S. officers could discount the essential human quality that we all possess -names- and replace it with something so cold and impersonal such as an identification number made the dehumanization process simple. What were people without names? In the Nazis minds they were superficial beings, without names in a camp, therefore they deserved any barbaric treatment thrown their way. To Hitler, the fact that Jews could potentially be broken this promptly proved he was in a step into the right direction at dehumanizing and eliminating the Jewish
For example, a man that was known for his horrendous doings and unforgivable by many, Hitler, didn't have the black corruption, used in the WWII, filling up his whole heart. For example, Hitler’s full on intentions weren’t to kill off all the Jews, but to deport them, or rid them of the state he lived in. This evidence shows that Hitler didn't want to exterminate all the Jews, giving insight that Hitler still had some humanity or good in him. To conclude, Anne Frank’s inspirational quote left many people pondering on its meaning, and in my opinion, I believe it one hundred percent accurate. With the people hiding in the Annex changing drastically from “bad” to “good”.
Boy in Stripped Pyjamas The boy in the stripped pyjamas by John Boyne details the life of a 8 year old Bruno and his German family during the time of the second world war Boyne alters the story’s narration to a third person limited view to somewhat conform Bruno’s perspectives of his surroundings which often includes childish opinions and lack of common sense. Much of the story follows Bruno’s internal struggles as his life changes drastically Bruno goes from a time living in a luxurious home in berlin, without a care in the world, playing with friends and being a child to living in an unpleasant home on a disturbing death camp due to his fathers promotion in a high ranking Military official in Hitler’s arm force. Bruno is constantly curious
The German workmen took a lively interest in this spectacle” (105) display that the common public were cruel because they ignored Jewish persecution and even mocked it in a sense. They were bystanders. This relates to the theme because it shows how inaction can be worse than beating; because the people did not help the Jews, they forced them to endure the Holocaust. This is truly
While reading this I felt the suspension and intensity of the story building. It made me think deeper about Josef and his past. How could someone that seems so nice be something so evil at one point? Everyone has had dark time in there life, but can someone so evil completely and fully become a better person? I wonder what happened in Josef’s past to make him so brain washed to the point where he believed that being a Nazi soldier was something he should do.
If one forgives another person the effects affect different people simultaneously. It affects the one asking for it and it affects the people around you politically. Jean Amery explains, “ Politically, I do not was to hear anything of forgiveness! I believe you that, who have devoted your life to investigation the political realm of Nazi crimes, will understand my position”(108). The law of course justifies the Nazi Holocaust as rightfully wrong, with that said it requires a due process for the Nazi members to adhere for forgiveness from the law.
Derek Lee Schoenfeld PD 2 Huck Finn Final Essay Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is considered an American classic because of the controversy surrounding the book and the issues it addresses in the story. Many consider Twain a racist because of the use of the derogatory term nigger and the half-witted nature he gives to Huck Finn’s sidekick, Jim. Countless times in the story, Twain includes scenes where Jim asks the most simple and obvious questions. However, this only adds to the facade of stupidity Twain gives Jim which was Twain’s true intentions. Twain is an anti-racist, and rather than creating a story that explicitly criticizes the evils of slavery and racism, he portrays Jim as stupid to leave more of a subtle and lasting impression.
