Many say that there was an alternate path that could have been taken to avoid the war, and they are correct, there were multiple ways to avoid both World War ll and the Holocaust, but humanity and society were blinded by fear and bloodthirst, they really are not to blame, it was the most brutal events in human history(Vail 9). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in
The discrimination against any group or organization occuring to is brings a lot of importance to the Holocaust. This is because if people can look back on a real life example displaying how discriminatory laws can lead to genocide, like the discrimination against Jews lead to the Holocaust, they would be able to realised that these discriminatory laws today need to be prevented and stopped. Otherwise, a holocaust against any of these previously mentioned groups could materialize. Moreover, the Holocaust ended up having multiple, universal effects on the victims. Similarly, to a much lesser degree, the Holocaust had an effect on the indifferent people that were unknowing of the true occurrences inside the Jewish concentration camps.
If you mean to tell me that anyone who was born into a family of monsters exiled by God is not misunderstood, I hate to break it to you, but you’re wrong. It would be like being born into a family of Nazi supporters: you grow up supporting the Third Reich and even though it’s wrong, you don’t know any better. Beowulf introduces this tragic backstory, however, without defending Grendel and without assuming he is anything but rotten and nefarious. Grendel further expands his backstory while leaving the readers to wondering Grendel really is the way he is for a reason. There’s two sides to every story.
The Nuremberg laws had caused the Jews to feel isolated from society and had affected them in various ways. “Adolf Hitler announced the Nuremberg Laws on September 15, 1995” (“ Nuremberg Laws”). This was when the laws were released and when everything had changed for the Jewish people. Also, when these laws were released it had also caused the Jewish people to feel defenseless because they had gotten their freedom and rights stolen from them. These law basically helped the Germans overpower the Jewish people.
Night by Elie Wiesel takes place in a very tragic time period the Holocaust. In the book humanity is what saves Elie along with the others this gives them the will to live. Others argue that this is not what keeps Elie and the others alive, but they are very wrong. “Make and effort Zalman...Try…”(Wiesel 86) As Elie risks his own life to help Zalman this shows a tremendous amount of humanity.
He describes Gods anger towards those who do not follow and believe in Him. It is explained that God is the only one who is able to save people from going to Hell. Edwards wants people to imagine how evil and distressed life would be without Gods love and mercy. He explains that to not burn in Hell people need to ask for forgiveness from God, experience Gods mercy, and continuously practice the Lords word. Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is.
Many historians denote that there are so many reasons as to why Jews were and still are being hated and persecuted and here are a few. It is felt that the Jews are hated and persecuted because they either possess a lot of power or are worthless, responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and seen as a threat to racial purity through assimilation. The Sinai Jews were among the Jews that were hated the most. They were hated and persecuted because they believed that there was only one God that mankind or God's chosen people are suppose to believe in and serve. That belief alone caused confusion between the Sinai Jews and others.
The deeply rooted antisemitism existed earlier in time gave the blueprint to start the Holocaust, the inaction of the bystanders can be viewed as the main ingredient that allowed the Holocaust to reach the magnitude it did. The psychological factors, ordinary people refused to acknowledge the crimes of the Holocaust, the bystanders stayed silent and the hiding behind words is a way to look at the role of the bystanders in the Holocaust. During the Holocaust you could do three things, (1) you do the right thing, (2) you do the wrong thing, (3) you do nothing. Bystanders are considered to be in the third category. There are many definitions of what a bystander is, but according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, “‘Bystanders’ as
The Holocaust is one of the world’s darkest, most appalling events in the history of the world. Timothy Snyder, in his Op-Ed titled “The Next Genocide,” comments on the Holocaust by implying that “the Nazi Final Solution [was] some dark apex of high technology…[which] may seem a distant horror whose lessons have already been learned” (Snyder). However, he also proposes several reasons as to why the possibility of a genocide, similar to the Holocaust, is on the edge of happening. He examines that the main reason for Hitler’s treacherous actions towards the Jews was because he “believed that Germany needed more land and food to survive…and that Jews, and their ideas, posed a threat to his violent expansionist program.” He then traces three reasons,
Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not. People in Waknuk are punished each other as well as from the belief spills of the “Old People” have left, however, these principles made the Waknuk society fall. Therefore, people in Waknuk should have acceptance to deviation and mutant people rather than send to the Fringes or kill them because they could lose talented people that could rise their
“Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.” -Hitler. These words spoken by Hitler were the end of Jews. But I bet you didn’t know that he wasn 't the main reason the Holocaust happened. The Top SS Officers, The Allies and Hitler were the reasons the Holocaust happened. “ Dr. Mengele, the notorious Dr. Mengele.
Night by Elie Wiesel is a memoir about a boy’s terrifying experiences during the holocaust during the years of the 1940’s. God created the world only for it to be destroyed by such hatred. In times of trauma and distress,one may begin to question and doubt their faith in the power of a God. On the contrary, in the event that there is a situation that demonstrates pure evil,such as Wiesel’s perspective in The Holocaust, there is always a reason for all that happens. As mentioned in an article titled “How Could God Have Allowed the Holocaust?” published by Huffington Post, the theological law of free will infers that God cannot interfere with the choices we make, because he created us along with the freedom of choice, and isn 't able to make
Steele analysis Night as being focused on how the Holocaust affected many people’s faith with God. He states that Night’s purpose was , “to focus on the Holocaust’s significance for altering the human understanding of man’s relationship to God” (Steele 1). He then begins to explain that ever since 1945, due to the Holocaust, many theological revisions have taken place in both Jewish and Christian beliefs. However, he distinctly points out that, “Night is not an example of the “death of God theology””(Steele 1). He makes it perfectly clear that Wiesel did not lose complete faith in God, however his views of God were significantly alter after his survival.
Many who had a faith, had their relationship with God put through several trials and tribulations. Some relationships prevailed, and some failed, but the questioning was fundamental. As Moshe the Beadle says, “I pray to the God within me that He will give me the strength to ask Him the right questions.” (pg 33) The Holocaust forced many people to ask horrible questions concerning their relationship with God, but the fact that one is asking the questions in the first place, still proves their faith. For example, once Wisel found himself in the concentration camps, he started to question God, and why he permit something as horrible as the Holocaust to occur. On page 33, he asks, “Why should I sanctify is name?...What was there to thank him for?” Elie starts to question why he should continue to have a relationship with God, because He had allowed a traumatic event, such as the Holocaust to exist, proving the relationship to be challenged.
The Holocaust. That may just be words to some people, but to others, this was the most devastating thing ever to happen to one human race. The Holocaust happened because Hitler blamed Jewish people for losing World War I. The Holocaust was mostly to get rid of people that Hitler didn’t see as the superior race. The superior race was blond hair and blue eyes.
