When Wallenberg didn’t like his job he stayed in Sweden and started working for a Jewish refugee named Koloman Laver. They worked together in the Central European Trading (Source A internet). According to (Sources I page 109), “8,000 Hungarians had been handed over to the Germans.” This quote states the Wallenberg was to late because they were already sent to the Germans, while he still had the chance to save 13,000 at frontier. Eichman is a selfish man that thought
Throughout history, there have been many examples where groups of people have been denied their human rights. Individuals, groups, and governments have attempted to end many of these human rights violations although they have not always been successful. One event from history that can immediately be dissected from many other events that stripped humans of their basic rights is the deadly and horrible Holocaust which mainly took place in Germany during World War II and discriminated against the Jewish population. The German dictator at the time of WW2, Adolf Hitler, hated Jews and believed they were the reason for all the bad things happening to Germany such as the bad economy and the loss in WW1. The circumstances that led up to the Holocaust was the Treaty of Versailles after the Germans lost in WW1.
Mike Rose shows how learning is built through experience and practice in “A Vocabulary of Carpentry” and Viktor Frankl shares the effects of his experiences in a concentration camp during the Holocaust in “Experiences from a Concentration Camp”. Both readings touch on the ideas of phenomenology and experiential learning. Phenomenology is the study of consciousness through phenomena. In Frankl’s “Experiences from a Concentration Camp”, every experience he lived through contributed to his consciousness and self-awareness to his situation. The thoughts, emotions, and memories that Frankl experienced while enduring suffering and mistreatment as a prisoner shaped his understanding and perception towards life.
When we realize the past and how it got us here, we can focus on the future. The statement you are born out of the Holocaust means you have survived it. We learn most by experience. The Holocaust took away your family. But after this tragedy you found your true love.

“The Dream...And everyone in Plaszow knew this, the dream of everyone in Plaszow was to find a way to work for Schindler…” Moshe Bejski (Vid). Oskar Schindler was an enigmatic figure during the Holocaust, originally motivated by greed, the industrialist had a miraculous change of heart during the Second World War. Although Schindler’s motivations can be disputed, his impact on the Jews whose lives he saved can not. One of the Jews Schindler rescued was Moshe Bejski, a young man just nineteen years of age when the war started. Bejski was a Zionist, but due to a serious heart condition, he was unable to travel to Israel as he intended, and was confined to Poland (Gariwo 1).
Hope was lost as as a prisoner at the concentration camp. The most hopeful sight was if the the U.S went over the camp with a goal to liberate the camp. Butterflies were also a sign of hope to children who were dying. Classification: People were classified according to their religious beliefs as well as their emotional traits.

In the “Resistance During the Holocaust”, it describes how the Jews actively resisted with uprising in camps, Partisans, and rescuers. People can best respond to conflict by fighting by active resistance because to avoid later shame, show defiance, and die in your own way. When the war is over why should you live the rest of your life in shame, guilt, and humiliation? In the “Violence of Hope” Assi Bielski’s “father was a Jewish resistance fighter” (14). Her family happily talks about the war with no humiliation as she goes on saying, “it’s the number tattooed on your arm that is a constant reminder of the humiliation.
In the context of the Holocaust, oral history has been especially significant and beneficial to document and give witness to the horrific suffering and torture sustained by humans during the World War II. Particularly, it is imperative and an obligation to study the testimonials and biographies of those who were labeled as political prisoners taken away to concentration camps to be brutally persecuted and killed. The Holocaust was an atrocity of an unimaginable magnitude, with the loss of 6 million Jews plus 5 million others; it is unacceptable to question the validity of oral history in relationship to the Holocaust. To question or deny the oral testimonies of the Holocaust is as if one were to refute the existence of the Holocaust, along with all those who have lost their lives, and its impact on modern society. However, the article entitled History Matters, as seen on George Mason University’s website under the Interpreting Oral History section, points out the potential flaws of oral history.
