Any sort of faith the Jews had were lost after the way the Nazis treated them and the terrifying events they faced. Everyone lost their faith in humanity when the Nazis forced the Jews to degrade their house of worship. When they were getting deported, they were held in the synagogues, their holy place and were not allowed to leave the building. "While they are waiting to be deported, they are forced to relieve themselves on the floor of their own holy place, the synagogue." The Jews were forced to sit there and could not leave under any circumstances.
Article 13 is everyone should be able to leave their country and be able to come back. This right was broken many times because they were forced to stay put and then they were forced out of their homes and not allowed to go back. An example is, “First edict: Jews were prohibited from leaving their residences for three days, under penalty of death.” (page 10) Article 17 was broken. Article 17 is everyone should be able to own property, and it can’t be taken away. An example from the book is, “A Jew was henceforth forbidden to own gold, jewelry, or any valuables.” (page 10).
When Moishe is taken away from the town of Sighet, he returns only to described the horrific series of murders he witnessed. Saying in detail how German officers would use babies as target practice for the machine guns, family members were killed in front of other members, and of the father who plead to be killed before his son. The other Jews did not believe his stories, until the German army arrived at their town. The army took their rights away slowly, which prompted the Jews to change emotionally. Eventually they stopped being seen as human, as they were prohibited to go to restaurants or cafes.
This shows how the Nazis treated Elie and the other Jews with hunger and how they did not get any food. The Nazis will treat the Jews as if they were not real people this is an example of man inhumanity to man. The memoir Night by Elie Wiesel had many themes some were struggle to maintain faith, Nazi cruelty and man's inhumanity to man. The Holocaust has a big role in history and so many Jews had lost their life because one man hate them so much that he had to punish the Jews and made the Nazi army did many inhumane things to
While the Nazis are evacuating the Jews, Elie says, “From that moment on, there was no further distribution of bread or soup” (Wiesel 114). Taking away the Jews’ food strongly shows dehumanization. The Jews barely got any food from the Nazis, and now they have taken that away completely. The Jews’ were being deprived of their right to eat and gain nutrients. When the Nazis took the Jews’ food away, they took their last right as
If any of the workers are not capable of performing tasks due to sickness or disease, they are most likely to get killed. The Nazis often refer to Jews as goods for nothing, and treat them like they are animals. Separating young children from their mother is emotionally dehumanizing the Jews. The Nazis dehumanize Jews physically by beating them up for nothing. When Eliezer crosses Idek’s path at work one day, he says, “I happened
Nazis dehumanize the jews in multiple ways and for multiple reasons in the times of the holocaust. The holocaust took place during WWII. At this time the chancellor of Germany know as Adolf Hitler had ordered a crusade against the jewish race. In this time period over 6 million jewish people including men women and children. Families were stripped from their homes with nearly all of their possessions removed from them.After first entering the gates they weren't even allowed the cloths off their backs.Elie Wiesel introduces the theme of Dehumanization in the holocaust by reckoning event of his past life throughout the novel.
One...Two…, he counted.” (Weisel 65), which shows us how the Nazi’s would beat the Jewish people within the concentration camps. During the time that Elie was in Buna, Idek made Elie lie stomach down on a box and he whipped Elie and gave him 25 lashes. This was very cruel in that Idek punished Elie for knowing something that he knew about, but should not have
Dehumanization Causing Events in Night Over the course of Eliezer’s holocaust experience in the novel Night, the Jews are gradually reduced to little more that “things” which were a nuisance to Nazis. This process was called dehumanization. Three examples of events that occurred which contributed to the dehumanization of Eliezer, his father, and his fellow Jews are: people were divided both mentally and physically, those who could not work or who showed weakness were killed, and public executions were held. Firstly, many of the Jewish people were separated from each other both mentally and physically regardless of their feelings about the separation. An example of this was when the people were loaded into the cattle cars, eighty in each.
As if they were just a number on a sheet of paper. We notice in the book how the Nazis only identify the Jewish people as numbers and they possessed no knowledge of their actual lives or their identities. They are also given such little amounts of food, that they are forced to scavenge for food on the floor during their free time. “Tired of huddling on
