He did not want anymore people to suffer like the way he and all the Jews did. I think Elie succeeded because he was able to survive through the holocaust and he was able to live to tell people what his life was like to be in a concentration camp. Elie’s
Even though he had some injuries he still did not want to press charges, which revealed Gandhi really did not like violence and he would do anything to display to the people that you can solve differences without violence. Gandhi connects to the Holocaust because he had a positive impact on India and the Holocaust left a negative impact on the Jews, so they both left tremendous impacts. Also, they are similar because Gandhi felt what he was doing was right, so did Hitler. Another example is after Gandhi was arrested for no reason he did not think all police were mean , just as the Jews did not think all Germans were mean. Gandhi also caused riots just as Hitler caused riots.
Up to 270,000 were Romans/Sintis (Gypsies). During the Holocaust nobody saw an issue and addressed it, except for Nicholas Winton. Nicholas Winton is a hero because he sacrificed his life to save many Jewish people, especially Jewish children. He organized foster homes for them and raised money to find transports for the children. Not only did he save 669 children, he also
“Night” by Elie Wiesel, is a true but tragic story about a kid who lived to survive the Holocaust. However, this book is less a story of the Holocaust and more a story of faith and hope. Hope and Faith was exactly what the camp prisoners needed to even have a chance of surviving the horrific obstacles thrown their way. Hope and faith gave them a reason to keep living, giving them the idea that they had a chance to make it out. This book also goes a lot deeper than just the story of the Holocaust.
Although Jews were considered worthless and treated like slaves during the holocaust, he was kind and gentle to all his employees. He kept what was going on outside a mystery to them, in hopes that they would not live in fear. The work they did paid well, and was one of the very few places Jews could actually receive enough food to eat and a stable roof over their head. All the Jews in the factory were recorded as essential for the production of war products. Elderly men and women were recorded as young and healthy, children were recorded as adults, and disabled were recorded good as new.
Why did Oskar Schindler Save the Jews? There are many reasons why Oskar Schindler saved the Jews. They may not all be true but everybody has their own reasoning why he did what he did. Some people think that he was a Rescuer, he was impulsive, or a Narcissist. Others believe that it he was a little bit of everything.
My character Arn from the book Never Fall Down values friendship and other people above all. This is true because he always help others by stealing food for them which would have gotten him killed. He protected them, taught them how to play instrument so they would survive. Arn to just does it without thinking. He stated that he didn’t know why he did it but he just did.
Jews began to hear about what the ten Boom family was offering, and began to move in one by one. Even though Jews kept finding their way to the ten Boom household, they were still greeted warmly and all got an opportunity hide there. This was true because the family believed that god was sending those Jews to their home for love and protection. I thought it was courageous how the ten Boom family could put their life in jeopardy, by rescuing as many Jews as they could. If they didn't have such a religious worldview, they could have just turned down those people and lived a safer life with no risk.
According to everything listed people are truly good at heart. People often help others, even in hardship. Meip, a character from ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’, said: “I’ll be the up the minute I hear some more!” (506). People like Miep are risking their lives to save Jews like the Van Daans and the Franks because they are not very fond of what Hitler is doing to the Jews and minorities, not only are they helping them hide but they are also taking care of the Franks and Van Daans. Mr. Kraler, another character from ‘The
Many prisoner felt the same, “We were not afraid. And yet, if a bomb had fallen on the blocks, it alone would have claimed hundreds of victims on the spot. But we were no longer afraid of death; at any rate, not of that death“ (Wiesel 57). Giving and up and death did not seem awful to them. All the work and treatment they experienced was inhuman.
Though they probably do their best to be accurate, they can write whatever they want. Another downside of being privately owned is the Jewish Virtual Library simply does not have a research budget anywhere close to the USHMM. I also find the USHMM’s lower estimate to be more likely because the Witnesses often experienced better treatment in concentration camps than other persecuted groups. German Jehovah’s Witnesses were still considered ethnic Germans by many Nazi’s. This supposed superiority to other imprisoned groups meant the often received better treatment.
Although Tadeusz generation was not one of the best, he still probably would do other righteous things in other generations. I am inspired by Tadeusz because of his perseverance when times were tough with the Abrahamer family. He did whatever he could to help them. I am also inspired by him because of what he did on the soccer field. He incorporated minorities along with Jews onto the team when other teams were not doing so.
To stay away from the Natzi’s, it was never easy from Jews at the time but they had a feeling that moving to the country side would benefit them at least a little. I think that this quote is a positive quote because it gave them a little of hope in getting away from the enemies and maybe relaxing. I could also relate to this because before I moved to Hawthorne, I lived in a town where there was always something bad happening and my parents decided that moving here would be the best idea for their kids and our lives. II. “Toward the
Learning from our consequences of actions is not only important but it gives you the chance to change your mistake it could also prevent it from happening again and makes you a little stronger in the inside. An inaction could just make you wonder what you could’ve done and cause feeling towards your idea. Of the eight hiders Otto Frank was the only one to survive the Auschwitz camp. Resistance might have told others to act if they were to see anything suspicious or their lives would of been in danger they had a choice to make action or inaction. Miep Gies did everything in her power to help her friends she was risking her life and husbands inaction was no friend of Miep Gies.
