for no reason except for their religion. If people were really good at heart, then the circumstances for the jews wouldn’t be like this Another quote from the play states “Annes Voice:They forced father out of his business. We had to wear yellow stars. I had to turn in my bike. I couldn’t go to Dutch school anymore.” To put this quote differently, All the Jewish people were discriminated and got treated unfairly.
He felt like the Jews were unsettling people and influence challenging ideas he didn't like. When hitler was young, he lost his faith and felt hatred to churches and that when he had a dream of becoming a leader (Keegan 38). Hiteler and the natzis ruined so much of the world that it was unbelievable. His destruction almost brought a end to certain human races and lost the hope that we all had once. The Holocaust was supposed to be nameless.
On the one hand, he has his conscience, which pushes him toward obedience to Shylock, (his master). On the other is his prejudice, which sees Jews as devils. He says ““Fiend,” say I, “you counsel well.” To be ruled by my conscience I should stay with the Jew my master, who, God bless the mark, is a kind of devil. And to run away from the Jew I should be ruled by the fiend, who, saving your reverence, is the devil himself.” (2.2.). Judgement of a person by their religion Lancelot Gobbo’s decision to leave his master is solely based on prejudice.
Jews were left escaping and some didn't make it. That makes the Jews despaired because of the reason of their homes and families. The citizens found this despair burning homes of Jews. Therefore, making the Middle Ages despair. This is the reasons I think my thesis statements is true.
Before events such as deportation to Auschwitz, German and Polish morals had already begun to weaken. The Nazi's used propaganda to ensure that the image of the Jewish community was a negative one. By making people like Vladek wear the Star of David, the party was able to completely dehumanize the Jews. Their association with evil allowed for the swaying and comprised Polish and German morals. This complete dismissal of ethical behavior demonstrates the truth of the current fragility of morals in these communities.
These people tried to appeal to god by committing different acts for the forgiveness of god. The Flagellants were very anti-Semitic, meaning that they did not like Jews. They were not the only people that were anti-Semitic because people all across medieval Europe had already believed that Jews were the cause of the black death. Many Jewish homes were born, drastically changing the life of many people. The pope disapproved of the flagellants and the flagellants disappeared after 1349(Edmond).
Anti-Semitism is defined as a racial term meaning the negative belief and emotions about “Jews qua Jews” (Newman, 2010, p. 15). Anti-Semitism dates back to 70.C.E where the ancient rebellious Hebrews “exhausted the patience of their Roman masters”, lost their homes and were spread through the Mediterranean lands (Botwinick, 2014, p. 4). Jews were always outcasts to Christians because the Jews denied that Jesus was the “messianic son of God” which therefore added more tension when it was believed that Jews killed Jesus (Botwinick, 2014, p. 5). The Holocaust also known as the “Catastrophe, the Sho’ah, is one of the tragic periods of “Jewish Diaspora” (Keter Books, 1974, p. 1) It started between 1933 and 1945 in Europe. It first started with discrimination
One who discriminates against or is hostile against Jews is perceived as an Anti-Semitic. Jews are ridiculed against in their everyday lives. Even after the twelve years of being tyrannized by Adolf Hitler, Jewish people are still taunted by non-jews.
Is it a religion, family culture or a nation? Which I think also that the lines are blurred when it comes to that question. What is it that really made or make people hate the Jews so much. Maybe Jews are hated because they are famously known as the “chosen people” according to the Bible. Maybe that is the nature of the hatred.
Many consider bystanders to be as guilty as perpetrators for not doing or saying anything in a time of crisis. Such was the case for the Holocaust. Bystanders during the Holocaust consisted of the civilians and countries who chose to distance themselves from what was really happening, instead choosing to justify the situation, or just not think of it. Many people rationalized, that the idea of self preservation was much more important than sacrificing oneself for the greater good. People also held a sense of indifference towards the suffering of the Jewish people.
As a result, wars, hatred, and protests broke out, because people thought they were better than others. Night and To Kill a Mockingbird are both related books because Jews and Blacks were stripped of their rights, experienced evil, and had no respect. Innocent black and Jews were wrongly stripped of their rights. In the novel Night there were a lot of rights taken from the Jews. To begin with, Jewish children were not allowed to German schools, signs were posed on Jewish
However, around 1348, Christians started accusing the Jews of bringing and spreading the plague to Europe. The Christians claimed that the Jews were “poisoning food, wells and streams,” as a way to eliminate the Christians and become the dominate religion in Europe (Cohn 3). As a result of this, Jews were taken and “tortured into confessions, rounded up in city squares or their synagogues, and
