In “Resistance During the Holocaust” resistance was so hard because many Jews were murdered by the Nazis and they had very little access to weapons. The purpose for passive resistance was to forget the worries of the ghetto life and to keep themselves clean, and personal satisfaction. The types of cultural and spiritual resistance were Violins of hope, poems, books, music, reading, writing, singing, photography, and art. Oskar Schindler, Raoul Wallenberg, and Chiune Sugihara were forced enormous risks to save and care for those being persecuted in Europe. For example, people can best respond to conflict by passively resisting because of legacies, hope, and survival.
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.
According to “Deceiving the Public,” prisoners were victims of the horrors that occurred in the ghettos: “To prevent non-Jews from attempting to enter the ghettos and from seeing the condition of daily life there for themselves, German authorities posted quarantine signs at the entrances, warning of the danger of contagious disease”(“Deceiving the Public” A). Jews were seen as filthy and inferior to others; they were just scapegoats to a chaotic warzone. Nazi officers
As The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen defies the capital for the betterment of her people, so do many other literary figures. Some of these characters include Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn and Sophocles’s Antigone. Both of these characters convey the theme of rejecting society, as they rebel against society or authority to stay true to themselves. Huckleberry ignores society because he wants his independence and doesn’t want to be held back by anyone. On the other hand, Antigone only stands up to her uncle, the king, because she wants to bury and pay her respects to her dead brother, who rebelled against the city.
The Holocaust killed over six million jews which left many jewish people in fear that they could get taken to. In “The Diary of Anne Frank” by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett followed the life of a Jewish family in hiding by telling the story through a girls diary. All the historical events of World War II affected those who lived in the annex in “The Diary of Anne Frank.” As the Nuremberg Laws are passed it stripped all German jew of their rights such as being able to ride bikes, owning business, go to normal German schools or be able to be in a government, medical, oor teaching profession and taking their German citizenship from them. In “The Diary of Anne Frank” Anne was sad and upset because she wouldn't be able to ride her bike, go to normal schools with her friends or even see her friends. One other law from the Nuremberg Laws is that all Jews must wear a Yellow Star of David to identify that they are Jewish.
With historical events as large and dehumanizing as the Holocaust was for so many people, representation and retelling of the event becomes a difficult subject. How can someone accurately convey the pain and suffering so many millions of people felt especially when there is the potential for someone to profit? Art Spiegelman's comic book Maus was subjected to the same criticism and more surrounding the ethics from publishing his comic and the issues raised by the tale of his father's survival. The means that Vladek Spiegelman and other Jews used to try and remain alive were considered barbaric by the outside world and brings into question the ethics of survival and the fragility of morality. Art Spiegelman portrays this complex issue on page one hundred and fourteen with the interaction between Vladek and his cousins Haskel and Jakov.
The people were at fault because they sat back and watched the events unfold. Stalin used gulags and labor camps to scare the people. The people were afraid of being sent to the gulags so they did not do anything about it. Gulags are “systems of labor camps maintained in the former Soviet Union from 1930 to 1955.” Vladimir Lenin created gulags. He was against the wealthy people, white guards, and clergy members.
Paul explains to them that they did not receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses but by having faith in the Lord. Paul reminds all the people of Galatia that when Jesus died on the cross, “He rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law.”6 Paul tells the Galatians that they have been given the same blessings as God has promised to Abraham so that through faith and only faith that they could receive the Holy Spirit. Paul admits that the law was given to show people their sins, however, the law was to last only until the coming of the child that was promised to Abraham. The reasoning of law’s purpose is written in the way that Paul said “The law was our guardian until Christ came”7. Now that Christ had came the way of the law was no longer needed to keep the people in line.
The world is complete with death, destruction, and fake news, but it is everyone 's job to make a distinction between true and false.Holocaust Denial has been around since WW2 and started out as propaganda against the Germans.The Holocaust was the mass extermination of the Jews and multiple other “groups” of people in Europe during WWII.Over the past few decades, people such as anti-Semitism (anti-Jew groups) have gathered “proof” that’s the Holocaust never really happened.Although many people believe the Holocaust was a hoax, this historical event is backed up by eyewitnesses, historical documents, and Nazi/war facilities. Eyewitnesses like the famous Anne Frank and many others have published their experiences in books and memoirs to shed a light on the grim time in the world.Even less commonly known authors such as Ruth Kluger have depicted a vivid description of the horror in the Death Camps.”Kluger 's account is set against a backdrop of death and destruction.All remaining inmates of the family camp, she tells us in her memoir, were gassed in July 1944. (Peter Novick).Throughout the years and Nuremberg trials, many Nazi commanders have confessed and
by the mean and unkind people in the world. While the families were in hiding, Anne, as well as everyone else, was upset by the fact that they had to hide from the Germans, they had to do this, because if they didn’t they would be sent to a concentration camp, and be put to their deaths. Anne was upset about this but she said “Were not the only people that have had to suffer.”(Frank,510) During the holocaust, many people were treated badly based on religion. It all happened because of the unkind people, Hitler, his followers, and the Germans. Peter says in anger “Look at us hiding for 2 years not being able to move.” (Frank, 510) The people that are hiding in the annex are only there because they don’t want to get sent to a concentration camp, or be put to their death.
