Mr. Simpson family and doctors think it’s the best to get the flu shot because it could save his life. Mr. Simpson does not want the flu shot no matter what the consequences or actions that may be done onto him, in other words, he rather die than get the flu shot. Mr. Simpson is not technically making the right long-term decision; he can take care of
The Partisans were people who used guerilla combat tactics revolt against the Nazi’s and save the lives of many Jews as explained in “Resistance During the Holocaust”. The text states that the “Jewish partisans believed that they would never see home or family again, especially since the Nazis had already murdered most of their families.”(P18). Jews that joined the Partisan force faced the reality that they most likely may never return home so they may as well fight until they could no longer. Believers in active resistors wanted to die knowing that they made a difference and had a direct effect on the Nazi’s instead of succumbing to the wrath of hitler. Some may react with the point that taking part in passive resistance could have prolonged your life.
Hitler wanted to kill every single Jew and discontinue their bloodline, but the violins are serving as a legacy to the Jews. Even if they died tragically, the violins still provide their culture. Yet, others may argue that the violins did not help the Jewish culture but hurt the Jewish culture. They may say this due to the fact that the prisoners played classicals on their violins to calm the Jews, making it easier to kill them. This is very wrong because the violins helped the Jewish culture survive and didn’t hurt it.
People who opposed Adolf Hitler such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer was arrested in 1943 and executed in 1945. These events led to the act of 1943 also known as the warsaw ghetto uprising. “The warsaw ghetto was the most famous attempt to resist the Germans in armed fighting.”(Warsaw 1). Between 1933 and 1945 thousands of people resisted the Nazis using both violent and nonviolent means. After the German occupation of Denmark in April 1940, a resistance movement began there with its activities of killing informers, raiding German military facilities, and sabotaging rail lines.
Holocaust in Poland The Holocaust, also known as Shoah, was a genocide officially authorized and executed by the Third Reich during World War II. The Holocaust in German-occupied Poland involved the implementation of German policy of systematic and mostly effective annihilation of the indigenous Polish-Jewish population. Persecution of the Jews in Poland began immediately after the German invasion, which took place in 1939, particularly in urban areas. After the German attack on the Soviet sites in eastern Poland in June 1941, German police units, and special-task Einsatzgruppen, operated behind the front lines to shoot Himmler’s “dangerous elements” independently of the army, which consist of Jews and political opponents of Nazism. In the
No one wants to be a coward. We all want to be able to take care of, or defend, our family if harm arises that could threaten their safety. No one wants to run and leave their family because of fear. However, the flip side of courage is recklessness. An example of recklessness would be suicide attacks.
The Final Solution May Have Lost The Nazis World War II Out of eleven million Jews living in Europe, six million were killed, including men, women, and children. Over the span of of less than ten years, one and a half million Jewish children experienced inhumane deaths. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, German Nazis were finding more efficient ways for the mass murdering of whomever they pleased, the main victims being Jews. The Final Solution was the plan for the largest genocide in history and became Germany 's main goal during World War II. Even before the Final Solution, anti-Semitism was a common occurrence in Europe and only intensified when Hitler became chancellor of Germany in 1933.
At the end of World War II, the Nazis had seized the lives of six million Jews, with over one and a half million of them being children and teenagers. The Nazis advocated killing children since children were often regarded as non-productive, as well as symbolizing the continuation of Jewish existence in German society; therefore, they were among the first victims who were sent to their deaths in order to ensure the total destruction of the Jewish people. In the book Sevek and the Holocaust: the Boy Who Refused to Die, the memoir of an adolescent Jew during the time of the holocaust, shows the real struggles children faced during the holocaust to survive, even though they were unwanted and considered dangerous to the Nazis. Sevek, along with
The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. The first step in the Holocaust was moving the Jews to ghettos. Ghettos were temporary holding places for Jews. The Nazis wanted the concentration camps to exterminate the majority of the Jews, but the ghettos gave more opportunities for natural death (Byers 73). Many Jews were also forced to do labor in the ghettos, which sometimes caused natural death (Byers 73).
The Holocaust was also known as Hitler’s “Final Solution”, which was to exterminate Gypsies, Jews, Homosexuals, Jehovah 's Witnesses, and Political Prisoners. The Socialist Workers Party, used a system of death camps and labor camps located in occupied Poland, and in eastern Germany. After the passing of the Nuremberg laws, the Jewish people were denied of their rights. They were stripped of their citizenship and couldn’t live a normal life. The Jews could not leave their house,
According to The Holocaust Explained, “In Nazi Germany after 1933, and across Nazi controlled Europe, between 1938 and 1945, concentration camps became a major way in which Nazi imposed their control (Holocaust Explained, 1)”. The first concentration camps were set up for Polish prisoners and officials. The camps were labor camps where the detained would be forced to do grueling work with harsh, long hours. The first camps also housed many misfits including gypsies, roma and transgender people who the Nazi saw as weak, and intolerable. After the occupation of Poland in late 1939 the Nazi started capturing the Jews and putting them into the camps where they started to talk about the “Final Solution” or the end of all the Jews, and possibly of the whole world.
Euthanasia literally means good death. However in our society euthanasia is intentionally ending a life in order to relieve suffering or pain. There are two ways to put people to death you either do it with their will or against their will. if you put someone to death against their will we usually call it murder. But if I say “I’m feeling terrible kill me” would you help me to die?.so now we have euthanasia defined and assistant suicide and all these different terms very very confusing to the public because the public generally says “if I am in great pain and I am terminally ill and I am going to die soon why can’t I accelerate or make ease of my death?”.
"If we legalize assisted suicide, some patients will die instead of ultimately regaining their joy in living”( Wesley Smith) others think its spiritually wrong and it goes agenst what many religions believe in. some also believe that assisted suicide is a slippery slope and some would use it for the wrong reason. “Of all the arguments against voluntary euthanasia, the most influential is the 'slippery slope ': once we allow doctors to kill patients, we will not be able to limit the killing to those who want to die”. (Peter
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.
In retrospect, I can resonate more with Mill’s utilitarianism. I would rather kill one person than five. I believe if I chose to be selfish and save a loved one, I would be looked down upon. To carry the weight of knowing that you could have saved lives, would most likely be a haunting experience. I would not want the families of the victims to endure the pain of losing a loved one.
