During the Holocaust Jews were put through horrific things you can’t even imagine would happen to another human being. Jews lives were completely changed, they had gone from happy with their family to families torn apart within a few days. The prisoners wondered how long they were going to live. They had never known what day was going to be their last. The Holocaust is a very significant event in history because of how horrible Jews lived their lives back then and where they lived their lives during that period of time.
If Charlie knew what the rude comments his coworkers told him meant, he would have never went to the bar and gotten hurt. Also, after his operation, and realizing what the rude comments meant, he wanted to help other people who went through the same thing he did. Therefore I think it's better to know something than not to know. Being oblivious or being intelligent? There are multiple reasons why people would choose the latter.
Often people want to censor or hide information regarding the ideas that contributed to massive atrocities, but it is important that future generations can identify the patterns of thought that can lead to those events. In Why I Write, Elie Weasel says “Our Jewish children had no effect upon the killers,” reflecting on the lack of regard even for children by the perpetrators of the Holocaust. While these actions seem obviously evil and wrong to the normal reader, at one time an entire nation was complacent while murders of millions of people took place. In the fight to prevent future tragedies, it is vital that the public can recognize the social and political ideas that lead down the slope to extreme behavior. If one wishes to prevent future evils, they must be able to identify evil when it
There are countless ways to confront denial but there area few specific ways to stop it that will make the biggest impact. First of all you can research the Holocaust and find facts to prove that deniers are wrong, then you can share the truth with any deniers that may come your way (par 8). Finally you must always remember that no matter what happens you should stand up to people that are denying the Holocaust, or even just making a hateful statement aimed towards others(par 8), because if we just sit around letting these words be said we are going to be allowing hate for not just the Jewish but many other religions and cultures into our society. We do not need more hate because it is a very powerful emotion and we already have too much of it, adding more is just going to cause history to repeat
Many consider bystanders to be as guilty as perpetrators for not doing or saying anything in a time of crisis. Such was the case for the Holocaust. Bystanders during the Holocaust consisted of the civilians and countries who chose to distance themselves from what was really happening, instead choosing to justify the situation, or just not think of it. Many people rationalized, that the idea of self preservation was much more important than sacrificing oneself for the greater good. People also held a sense of indifference towards the suffering of the Jewish people.
The novel Night by “Ellie Wiesel” is a survivor 's story of his experiences in the Holocaust. It covers his life before and during the concentration camps. In these times the path was not always straight and the overwhelming circumstances caused people to make decisions that were rushed or insensible. People got caught up in disbelief and chose not to take action where action would have saved their lives. These opportunities presented were missed or brushed aside and caused the death of thousands of people.
The sense of dehumanization during the holocaust was tragic; this time in history is sad but a very good lesson could be learned. Jewish people all over had to leave the homes or the places they had grew up in and were forced to leave their families and were then taken to the concentration
The stripping of Eliezer’s clothes, removal of his gold crown, and how being at Auschwitz makes his beliefs and faith disappear are all instances where he is a victim of dehumanization. With Eliezer’s friends being made into soup, Jewish people getting burned, and how babies were being used for target practice are great exemplifications on how Eliezer’s friends were also victims of the dehumanizing actions that the Germans portrayed towards the Jewish people. One lesson that is shown is that although they cannot choose the circumstances they are in, they choose the way they decide to deal with these circumstances. Up to 6 million Jewish people died because of their beliefs and religion during the period of the Holocaust. The fact that we live in a world that gives anyone the opportunity to believe in what they would like makes us very
Dehumanization is the process in which a person is deprived of their human qualities. The Nazis often used this practice on the Jews and other victims of the Holocaust as these people were stripped of their humanity, and many examples of this can be found in the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel. “Humanity? Humanity is not concerned with us. Today anything is allowed.
These people were literally stripped of everything that they had ever known, loved, or had. This was no joke, no game or no fictional story, but more the truth of what it was really like during the Holocaust and inside a Jewish concentration camp. This was a time where innocent Jewish people were deprived from everything just because of their religion. Families were broken apart and were never brought back together, virtuous men, women, and children were killed. These people were tagged as numbered instead of called by their names, sent to live in places and leave all their belongings behind to be burned by the Nazis.
He gained his power from propaganda, preying on the hopes of the innocent, and a governing system without limitations. Something of this magnitude should never come into effect again, and there should be checks and balances in place to prevent such occurrences. Furthermore, this horrific genocide also portrays the atrocity of racism. Racism is still in dilemma in society today. Although the holocaust was tragic, it can serve as a reason why people need to love, and support each other, rather than hate, and
He was put into labor camps at a young age and was torn from his family. Like any other jew he was trapped in a ghetto, transported to a camp, and evaluated in the selection. He has gone through every painful event in the holocaust and the most painful event was knowing how his father died and that his father death brought him joy not sorrow. The Holocaust is an important because it shapes who he is. Wiesel wouldn 't have become a fighter for peace if he wouldn 't have experienced all the terrible thing his own kind did to him, the beatings, the hunger and the pain.
Europe really didn’t know what to think of all the death that was surrounding them so they tried understanding it the best they could. Some were more rational about it and knew that they should try to avoid the dead and contact with those who may be ill. Others were scared and decided to blame it on those with different beliefs as them. They didn’t want to believe that they had done something wrong for which God would punish them. Europe just didn’t understand what was happening or what to do to make it
