19 Nazis were found guilty, 12 were sentenced to death. 185 other Nazis were found guilty later. Trails did not include the highest ranking Nazis like Hitler, Goebbels or Himmler because they committed suicide. The Final Solution- The Final Solution was the plan Nazis had to exterminate the Jewish people. What is clear is that the genocide of the Jews was the decade of Nazi policy, under the rule of Adolf Hitler.
They held the highest population in all and every camp. In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”.They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
Showing an act of astounding courage, Melba still went to an all white school despite the traumatic experience. Lots of very realistic dialogues stood out to me but when the segregationists crowded central high on the first day and were screaming “Niggers, go home! Niggers, go back where you belong!” (Pg.35) I felt a pang in my heart as someone of my own family was hearing those cruel words. Despite hearing those kinds of words every day and still standing up what she believed in is what true courage is all about. In conclusion, Warriors Don’t Cry is a memoir that will help you get motivated and believe that if there is will there is a way.
Soon after Haemon’s suicide, Eurydice kills herself too. Creon has begun to feel this heavy burden on his shoulders. All these deaths started because of his one choice to send Antigone to the cave. His emotions are being poured out “alas for me… the guilt for all of this is mine- it can never be removed from e or passed to any other mortal man” (Sophocles, 1463-1465). Creon is feeling numerous emotions after his downfall.
He needed someone to blame for his loss so he decided to blame the Jews. He had no reason to go and blame Jewish people but he needed a escape route away from losing so, he and his men killed as many Jews as they could by starving, shooting, and bringing them on death walks. All the survivors of Hitler normally went to concentration camps where they were separated from their family. Such as their being a family of 3 a boy a father and a mother, normally the boy would go to one concentration camp the father went to another and the mother went to different one.
(5. 109-111) Creon’s death sentence for Antigone led to his son’s suicide, which then caused the suicide of his wife. The reader feels pity for Creon for his lack of time to grieve and his tragic mistake that led to the loss of his family, this demonstrates his goodness. Creon, recently succeeded to take the throne of Eteocles, making him king. Therefore, giving him the title of royalty and showing superiority.
There needs to be the act of deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. For the holocaust, they did that exact thing. The Germans targeted the Jews and undesirables only and anyone that did not agree with the Germans. They did not like all of the differences that that came in between them. I believe that the holocaust can be called a gencise due to the effort in the numbers and all the hate that went into the camps.
Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban and lived to tell the story. As the Taliban took over her home, the Swat Valley in Pakistan, they banned girls’ education (“Diary of a Pakistani Girl”). From a young age, Malala has been an advocate for education. She would sit in on meetings with her father, and discuss rights with his friends (Yousafzai and Lamb 139). Pettinger said in his short biography about Malala, “In 2009, she began writing an anonymous blog for the BBC expressing her views on education and life under the threat of the Taliban taking over her valley” (Pettinger).
She left a lasting legacy to all girls that you should not be silenced by anyone. The origin of Malala Yousafzai’s call to change start when the Taliban started to get rid of girls’ education and rights. The Taliban, a terrorist group that took control of the Swat Valley, inflicted laws that reduced a woman’s rights to be only half of a man’s and laws that restricted women’s rights. The Taliban and General Zia created rules that were unfair like how girls should not have an education. (Rowell 10, Yousafzai 31) Because of all the protests for women’s rights, the Taliban eventually let girls go to school with many restrictions such as wearing a shiela to cover their entire face.
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs. The Nazi thought they were the superior race, and Jews were “inferior” as well as a danger to the ‘perfect’ German community. Gradually, the German government was filled with people who believed that Jews needed to be purged. They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes.
