What was the point of George killing lennie? Is that any different than a person killing someone because they accidently did something wrong? At the end of John Steinbeck's novella Of Mice and Men, George decided to kill lennie because he didn't want curly to get him first but maybe he was being selfish. Instead of killing lennie he could have killed curley.Therefore Georges decision is not justified because nothing is worth losing a friend for. Just like all the other guys in the farm George now has nothing because he got rid of Lennie.
The man after he had completed his mission just stood there, didn’t show a whole lot of sympathy for the people after he killed them, Just another case where the man was just shooting at an object. In conclusion, I think we can learn something from the snipers mistake, that may be simply knowing what you are doing. The sniper never knew what he was doing when he took the life of his brother, of the lady, of the gunman. We all need take a step back and recognize what could be affected from your actions. Weather that’s the theme of treating a human like they should be, or just learning from your mistakes.
Although it is unknown whether Beatty would actually kill Montag or Faber, Montag did end up killing him, and because it was out of defense of himself, his property, and someone else’s life and property, Montag is justified in his actions. In the novel Fahrenheit 451 (F451), the government has banned books, but the government is not to blame as it started with the people. The average person did not have the slightest consideration of books, and the people that did were considered snobby and harmful to society because they became much more intelligent than the average person. During the book, our main character Montag is a firefighter, but instead of putting out fires, they create them. They
Dehumanization is the process in which a person is deprived of their human qualities. The Nazis often used this practice on the Jews and other victims of the Holocaust as these people were stripped of their humanity, and many examples of this can be found in the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel. “Humanity? Humanity is not concerned with us. Today anything is allowed.
Max is struggling to understand that he's a Jew, doesn't understand why people hate him and why people follow Hitler. In ‘The Book Thief’, people still ”who refused to believe that this small town on Munich's outskirts could be a target, but the majority of the population was well aware that it was not a question of if, but when" (Zusak 353). This is an example of external conflict because this is an actual war between religious beliefs and hate towards Jews. What I think about the ending of the book still left people with questions about how Liesel’s life after the war was? Did she get married to Max?
We the usa as a nation did nothing to help the Jews during World War 2 we remain silent. We watched all of it happen. He is trying to keep the memory in our heads. Next time it happens we will stand for the people in harm. If a man try’s to repeat what happened.
The story was told by an unknown person who was never stated, the person committed murder and was talking about his sanity that went along with it, and the story took place in 1843. The author never states were the story takes place in, the narrator murdered the old man because of his eyes because he states they were like a vultures, the narrator states that he loved the old man although he didn’t like his eyes and he wanted them out. The story creates suspense when the narrator talks about he adored the old man but he didn’t like his eyes so he took them out. According to the Narrator he states about his love for the old man but the reason he murdered him was because his haunting look in his eyes, “I loved the old man, he never wronged me, he never gave me an insult, for his gold I had no desire, I think it was his eye yes his eye he had an eye of a vulture, a pale blue eye with a film over it whenever it feel upon me my blood ran cold, I made my mind to take the life of the old man.” In the quotation it states how he had problems with his inner vison. If the cause did not exist in this story line it wouldn’t explain why he killed the old man and what made his mind up.
The narrator of this story is Death, which in itself is a paradox because death is not a living thing and therefore cannot have an opinion or make decisions. Throughout The Book Thief, Death often adds in his own opinion or foreshadows something to come. He also interjects straight-out spoilers of events that have yet to occur. For example, here Death gives away the fact that Rudy is going to die and that it was unfair by declaring: “A SMALL ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT RUDY STEINER He did not deserve to die the way he did” (Zusak 241). The matter-of-fact spoilers Zusak throws at the reader throughout the story keeps the focus on the people – the how and why of what was happening, not the events in which they found themselves.
The photographs offered a clear view of emotion on looking through their eyes to the photos. Detective Len Fenerman having her photo and along with other victims in his wallet represents his failure find the murders, along with feeling he failed in finding the murders and trying to love Abigail, bring him in the end to write “Gone, he wrote on each one of them. He would no longer wait for a date to mark an understanding of who or why or how. He would never understand all the reasons why his wife had killed herself. He would never understand how so many children went missing”(Sebold,2002, p. 60).
The perpetrators gave the order to the collaborators to do the killing and the collaborators agreed with them and collaborated to do the job. The collaborators could have stopped the perpetrators by telling them no and talking them out of it. The bystanders could have helped the situation by doing something instead of staying quiet. In Elie Wiesel: The Perils of Indifference, Elie talks about indifference and how it affects people, “Indifference, after all, is more dangerous than anger and hatred” (2). Indifference has a bigger impact on people compared to anger and hatred.
Nikitchenko 's action to oversee such crimes was very wrong. Now, in 1945 he was serving as a judge to condemn German Nazis for their wrongdoings even though he had witnessed and approved of the killing and torture of innocent citizens. This just contradicts the Nuremberg trial 's mission. The Nuremberg trials were meant to punish Germans and all those who had committed reprehensible acts during the war, but the Allies were not convicted for their crimes (Davenport 141). Because those charges against the Nazis were made following the crimes, it is suspicious that none of the crimes committed by the Allied powers were brought forward.
“… that the world did know and remain silent.” (Wiesel’s Speech). The Holocaust is still a big event that is still known to this day, many people did know about the Holocaust was happening but chose to remain silent and see millions of people suffer, the world’s humanity needs a pause to rethink of their kindness. Like Wiesel and the most of the prisoners, they questioned the existence of God in their lives and on the world. “I was the accuser, God the accused. My eyes were open and I was alone – terribly alone in a world without God and without man.” (Wiesel 65).
