For some, spiritual resistance made them get through the nightmare they were living and made them feel as if they were normal human beings again even with Nazis trying to belittle them in every way. “... spiritual resistance may refer to the refusal to have one’s spirit broken in the midst of the most horrible degradation… schools and classes were organized inside the ghettos… Jews also engaged in a variety of cultural activities… Jews prayed and held ceremonies in secret” (“Spiritual”). Nazis prohibited ghetto residents to do anything that consisted of them being who they are. Through all the hardships and abuse, Jews were able to keep a little piece of themselves in secret to help them through the horror. Overall, the “undesirables” never gave up and stood for their survival as individuals and as a whole.
The violins of hope are a symbol of survival in a way because they carry on their previous owner’s life and history. Similar to the Jews, Malala, a passive resister against Taliban, wanted her story to be heard. Malala supports young girl’s education in Pakistan, and she wanted her message and her story to be heard, so others would oppose the Taliban. The Jews could resist the Nazis by preserving their story while nonviolently defying
In spite of everything, I still believe you will pay attention to how Anne believed that everyone was good at heart. Anne is one of the many victims of the Holocaust and is known as a reminder of the sin that is war. However, her diary shows how it really did not affect her. Let us find out why from her quotes.
So, if people leave the place to rot, it is disrespectful to the prisoners that suffered and died here. Also, The article “Save Auschwitz, or leave it to rot?” stated, “In 1947, Poland passed a law declaring Auschwitz had to be preserved forever” (Gizbert). In addition, since preserving Auschwitz is a law, the law should be followed. Two reasons Auschwitz should be preserved are for educational purposes and so it will not be forgotten. Clearly, Auschwitz should be preserved because the Nazis did not want it to last.
Jews that stayed in Germany were captured and taken to the concentration camps. Many people stood by and did nothing but Frank Holey risked his life, because he thought about the situation as in “What if I was in that situation, I would want someone to help save me.” So obviously, he was brave and he could not sit back and know that innocent people were going to die. He didn’t care whether, or not he was paid, he
Betsie refused to be selfish, while Corrie tried not to be, saying it’s the devil at work to be selfish in any way, even during this time. Corrie says this on page 224 when Betsie and her purposely go in the middle of the roll call to get warmth during the cold German winter weather. Despite both of their strong faith in God and the Bible, they still questioned why they were being forced to suffer in the concentration camp, especially when they were stripped of their clothing. But they then are reminded that now they have suffered similar to how Jesus suffered, especially with being stripped of their clothing and being tortured. This motivated them to make plans to help other survivors when they are released, as they never want to stop helping others in need.
Very glad I went if only to be kept aware of what human beings are capable of doing to each other. The mission of the Holocaust Muslim is to remember those who perished and those who survived the Holocaust, to set forth the lessons of the Holocaust as a model for teaching responsible ethics and to pay tribute to those who have performed or supported acts of a bravery in the face of great danger to themselves and their families. My experience was disturbing, sobering, perceptive and remarkably
Hazel overcomes this obstacle with acceptance and not living in denial. Obviously this was a very difficult thing for her to come and face, but when she confronted her problems head on, it was slightly easier. Gus wanted to attend his own funeral because Hazel saw that funerals were for the living, not the dead. Hazel had had some sort of closure when she read the letter given to her from Van Houten that Gus wrote to him. I can relate this to my life because I have realized that confronting problems instead of avoiding them is better in the long run.
A friend of Frankl’s in the camp warned him and others to shave and look fit to avoid being sent to the “showers,” or gas chambers. Soon enough, Frankl realized that apathy was a “necessary mechanism of self-defense” (28). When Frankl mentions of a time an officer hit him, he noted that the verbal insults one may receive was much worse than the physical injury. Frankl 's survival of his prison term was, in part, the result of his will to survive, along with other pre-destined factors. To quote Nietzsche, he had a "Why to live for" (page).
It is almost impossible not to feel bewilderment when viewing a suicide attack. Regardless, there are some people who see no other way to get their point across without the senseless killing of not only their self, but of other innocent people as well. The solution, or the “mean” insofar as the two extreme emotions regarding courage, is offered in the behavior of Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King displayed great courage and temperance in his fight for a better life, not only for his family but, for all people who suffered discrimination because of the color of their skin.
From the very beginning of World War II, the Jews practiced denial as a form of survival. The prospect of the rumors of concentration camps and slaughtering of their friends and family being true was too great a burden for many of them. As a means of survival, the Jews attempted to keep their lives as normal as possible. Continuing to live in denial of their ever changing surrounding, the Jews remained peaceful and formed their own community. With no resistance from the Jews, the Germans had to exert little force to maintain control.
Another important detail about this group of people is "The SS were headed toward the solitary confinement cell." (61) The Allied countries did do something but just not enough. The prisoners might of thought that the SS were going to kill them too, but that was not true. The Minor Nazi soldiers were also responsible for some part of
Now that i see when people are in trouble it 's not always because they chose to be. This compares to the Holocaust in such a way that they did not chose to be in these concentration camps, they did not chose to be starved, or worked to death. They were forced to, they were miserable knowing in their minds that death can take its next victims any
This is important because the people who lost their hope did not make it much longer after. In the novel night Elie the main character has to hope for so much. Elie has to not only have to hope for his life but for his fathers as well. Elie
