Although the experiences that Yoshitaka and the other civilians experienced in Hiroshima were unpleasant and awful, the atomic bomb had its positive side, which was that it was the only way in which Japan was able to surrender. Japan showed a great fight and they would not surrender for their country. The United States also decided to drop the bomb because they did not want any more Americans to lose their lives in another combat. Lastly, the most important reason U.S. actions were positive is because of the defeat of the Nazi’s in Europe. The Nazi’s were treating Jews terribly.
The groupthink, or group mentality theory occurs when the majority of the group follows a certain ideal or idea, and causes individuals who might have thought otherwise to support the majority’s conclusions. This has never been more prevalent then in one of the most horrifying events in history: the Holocaust. The events of the Holocaust baffled the world – no one could understand how Hitler convinced thousands of German soldiers to murder millions of innocent Jewish citizens. The world could not understand how a sophisticated and refined European country could follow a mindset that systematically eradicated generations of people for the sole reason that they practiced a certain religion (Tindale, Munler, Wasserman & Smith, 2002). The largest contributor to the events that took place during the Holocaust are the effects of conformity.
Despite the many theories about the purpose of the Holocaust, the real purpose make those who weren’t members of the Master Race fear the Nazi Regime, to force them to obey the Nazi’s without question. Many believe that the Nazis were the cause and started World War II. These people believe that the Nazis are to be held responsible for the holocaust
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
The mass killings of the Holocaust were what Hitler called "The Final Solution". The Jewish community had a mixed reaction at first when many of them saying “it can not get worse”, however despite the numerous warnings many Jews simply were not willing to leave their home and start a new life. The Holocaust is one of the world 's greatest tragedies that was made possible by the Nuremberg laws,
Whomever was to blame for Adolf Hitler’s power is now gone, but there are now smarter people and more experienced people now then there was then. Another reason not to be worried is that the world now has laws to help people and their freedom and prevent this from ever happening again. Hitler was a bad man and the Holocaust was a bad event, but think to yourself, was the risk of the country really at stake with the Jews, or was Germany in trouble when they appointed Hitler
For instance, Holden Caulfield calls many people throughout the novel who he feels has selfish motives “phonies.” Equivalent to Holden, Wiesel feels the need to prevent people (the “phonies”) from forgetting the Holocaust. Holden rebels against respecting widely revered people and Wiesel rebels against the progressing society. However, Wiesel’s rebellious actions are less voluntary than those of Holden. Wiesel has a sense of responsibility for justifying the deaths of the Jewish people: “We had all taken an oath: ‘If, by some miracle, I emerge alive, I will devote my life to testifying on behalf of those whose shadow will fall on mine forever and ever.” On the other hand, Holden is a rebellious teenager with a cynical perspective on the world. As stated previously, Wiesel has cynical outlooks as well.
In the book Ordinary Men, Author Christopher Browning argues that these Nazi’s especially referring to the Reserve Police Battalion 101 were normal people who had instructions given by Hitler and their government to follow through with by devaluing all Jewish life. Although these Nazi’s were placed outside of their regular comfort zone, the mass murder that underwent during the Holocaust was more of an act for the soldiers to continue out with to avoid any sort of alienation from their own country. Many sources were used as Browning tries to back up his argument. Browning utilizes throughout his book one specific German unit, which is the
The German authorities and their collaborators punished those who helped the Jews and offered rewards to people. Throughout the history of western civilization, it had never seen that the children were the prey of a systematic manhunt. During the Holocaust, this crime, organized by the Nazis and carried out in France with the collaboration of the Vichy Government. No one in Europe could have imagined the terror that the regime Nazi, inflicted upon Jews' children. However, there were several courageous individuals in France and throughout Europe, which endangered their own lives to hide and save these children.
This quote is something that I am glad that Elie remembers being said to him. This quote symbolizes what the Holocaust was doing to the Jewish people. During the Holocaust the prisoners were being violently treated from cramming them all in small ghettos and killing them for no reason. With the Nazis being so inhumane to the prisoners it caused the prisoners to be inhumane to each other. One thing that I believe could have saved more people at the end of the Holocaust is if prisoners and officers like Oskar Schindler would have stood up for everything that they knew was
