For example, some of these laws close out Jews from places like parks, fired them from their jobs (i.e. government jobs), and Jewish doctors can only work for Jewish patients. During the night on November 9-10, 1938, Nazis started a pogrom against Jews in Austria and Germany in what hat they called, "Kristallnacht" also known as ("Night of Broken Glass"). The savage night involved the taking away and destroying of synagogues, sabotaging the windows of Jewish businesses, rob their stores, and they physically attacked many Jewish too. Also, about 30,000 Jews were sent to the concentration camps after arrested.
In the book The Hiding Place, by Corrie Ten Boom, the reader journeys through the events that unfolded during the holocaust from the perspective of a Catholic. Corrie Ten Boom may not have fallen victim to the Germans, but she certainly didn 't agree with how the Germans were treating the Jews. Despite it being against the law, the Ten Boom family decided to lie in order to maintain the Jews safety. In this case it is simply to lie in because they are lying for the greater good of saving lives. When people make decisions they weigh the pros and cons, so when it came to the time where Corrie made her decision, she knew the good most definitely outweighed the evil.
He fled Warsaw and headed East to get away and make a plan. When he returned to Warsaw with his girlfriend the Nazis had already taken over and created barbed wired ghettos. He became active in the underground movement to help people escape this horrific place. There were many ghettos, extermination camps, and labor camps that were destroying the Jewish population. “Hitler and other Nazi leaders viewed the Jews not as a religious group, but as a poisonous "race," which "lived off" the other races and weakened them”(Mordechai Anielewicz).
When they signed up to become Nazis, they didn’t actually know what was going on, and when they got there, if they were to testify against the killing, they would have just been shot. This shows that they shouldn’t still be prosecuted. According to article two, they knew that they would be given tasks when they signed up for being a Nazi, but in article two, a guard named Groening quoted, “We were reminded that we had sworn an oath with the motto ‘My loyalty is my honor,’ and that we could prove this loyalty by doing this task which was now given to us—the details of which we would find out later.” So basically, they didn’t know what their tasks as Nazi guards were going to be until they were given to them. When people like Groening found out what was going on with the concentration camps, they
How much courage does it take to speak up? Elie Wiesel (a holocaust survivor) says that “…remaining silent encourages even more evil to happen”. Not speaking up in difficult times does nothing but make matters worse. There are two reasons that staying silent should be discouraged; speaking instead of being silent can change the outcome of an event, and prevent the doubts victims have about their abilities in life.In reality, speaking instead of staying silent can change the outcome of an event. For example, in the book Terrible Things (an allegory of the holocaust), a character says, “If only we creatures had stuck together, it could have been different”.
The victims of the Holocaust comprised of many different factions of people, including the Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, trade unionists, and political opponents of the Nazis. (Vail 112). The Holocaust was a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually to be deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. The Jews were forced into ghettos, which were described as quarantine facilities (Altman 19). One of the phony reasons they gave the public for sending the Jews to the ghettos was so that they wouldn’t have political or economic power (Altman 16).
In winsel’s speech he tills about how “neutrality helps the oppressor never the victim” silence encourages the tormentor never the tormented .wiesel keeps trying to repeat this speech his ideas because he does not want it to happen again. That he has lived to till everybody his story so that our nation’s history does not repeat.so we know what to do next time it happens. We will stand for the tormented and fight the tormentor. Wiesel is trying to relay this message to so we will do it because as he sated himself in his speech “if we forget them they will die a second time”. Which means that if we forget what happened during world war two and all the holocaust survivors and all they went through and what happened in that camp all the death .in some camps the atrocities that they did to get further in the war.so he wants us to remember the pain the death and the suffering that
My family was all killed by the Germans.” (Paragraph 13-15). Actively resisting avoids shame, guilt, and the humiliation of being helpless and sitting and watching your people die. On the flip side, others may argue that music, art, paintings, etc. was enough to protest. The flaw to that argument is that those would only be discovered after the war and only if the allies had won, by however actively arming yourself, killing Nazi’s and, sabotoging supplies the impact would be immediately felt, presenting a better chance of winning.
His tone was tender persuasion he wanted you to take his side. the audience is supposed to follow paines side and he wants you to hate the other side and if you don't take his side he wants you to feel dumb and not know what your talking about. Thomas Paine tender persuasion made everybody want to take his side. Last, Thomas Paine used imagery in the crisis to show you what he was saying and help you see how he did it. Some images he used where “the heart that feels not now, is dead: the blood of his children will curse his cowardice, who shrinks back at a time when a little might have saved the whole, and make them happy” it gives you a distinction of death and your thoughts of feeling dejection.
If the family could set aside there differences then maybe Romeo and Juliet would still be alive. When they do its a little to late. "O brother Montague give my thy hand". This is what capulets says when him and montugue are both looking at there dead children showing they are now stop this feud for the better. If Romeo and Juliet would kill themselves if they could not be together and on thing in the way of that is the feud then the feud is just as bad as Romeo and Juliet themselves.
In the book “Night” by Elie Wiesel shows an inside glimpse of how jews were treated in the holocaust. It shows what his daily life was in the concentration camp Auschwitz and how he had to fight for his life every day and how harsh the weather and the cruelty was. The book also shows how the human rights were broken. One of the human rights that were broken was article 13 which states “Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.” and in the book it says “Jews were prohibited from leaving their residences for three days, under penalty of death” (Wiesel 10). That shows how strict the Nazis were on the Jews and how they put the fear of death in them to intimidate them.
People are going to have their opinions and they are going to stick with them also anyone on their side due to the fact that everyone is prejudice in some points of their lives. It would be nice if we weren’t prejudice but we are, the only way to stop prejudice would to stop all competition. We all just need to love and respect each other and put the differences aside, if we can do that then there will be an improvement in prejudice but we still will not be able to abolish prejudice. As we saw in the study the kids were prejudice and doing anything to stop whoever was in their way of getting the prize we can compare this to our own lives and experiences because we see everyday people being prejudice over stupid things, there is no way of avoiding
With the invasion came many troops who created Ghettos to contain Jews until they were killed or transferred. But Poland was just the start. Next, the Germans invaded the Soviet union in 1941, where they began massive killing operations
They also did this was to tear the Germans apart physically and mentally. Also they bombed cities because of factories; you can destroy a factory and rebuild it but when you have no one to rebuild it its shut down for good. The allies wanted to causes issues behind the front lines. They wanted to reduce the number of possible troops for the Germans. They also wanted to kill the family members of the soldiers fighting on the front lines because, if the soldiers weren’t thinking right they couldn’t fight right.
This first stage was the oppression of Jews in Germany and alternate nations attacked by Hitler. It kept going until 1941. Amid this period, while Hitler assembled his energy, Jews were oppressed and brutalized yet there was no composed push to deliberately kill them. In late 1939 Hitler attacked Poland, starting the Second World War. In mid-1941 Hitler attacked the Soviet Union.
