Throughout the Holocaust the Jews began to become isolated from society and more in the Holocaust. “These laws had embodied many of the racial theories underpinning Nazi
Even in today’s world, when many political leaders are incredibly divided in their views, people still find a way to humanize their opponents. It is highly necessary to have perspective and respect for others so the world can prevent a horrible tragedy like this from occurring
The discrimination against any group or organization occuring to is brings a lot of importance to the Holocaust. This is because if people can look back on a real life example displaying how discriminatory laws can lead to genocide, like the discrimination against Jews lead to the Holocaust, they would be able to realised that these discriminatory laws today need to be prevented and stopped. Otherwise, a holocaust against any of these previously mentioned groups could materialize. Moreover, the Holocaust ended up having multiple, universal effects on the victims. Similarly, to a much lesser degree, the Holocaust had an effect on the indifferent people that were unknowing of the true occurrences inside the Jewish concentration camps.
The Holocaust is a well known genocide in European History. Due to of the mature nature and gory subject of the Holocaust, it is a very controversial subject to be taught in schools. Some people say that the Holocaust shouldn’t be taught in schools, while others says it should but only to a certain degree. There should be lots of preparation in teaching students about the Holocaust. They should be prepared for the details they will learn and be mature enough to deal with these details.
In society there are depersonalizations that come with institutions such as places of education, and government. One of the terrible markers of depersonalization is genocide. One of the most remembered genocides in history a part from, Stalin’s political prisoners, and the re-locating and executions of Native American’s in the new world, is the Holocaust. During the Holocaust, Nazi’s did not treat Jews like people but rather a disgraceful part of society that were to be rid of. However, depersonalization does not only happen on a global level, but rather it happens daily in each of our lives.
I think that this can apply to the Holocaust. Although the Holocaust was not some minor blunder that can easily be recovered from, it is important for society as a whole to learn from what happened. It is easy to see now that it was a time in history with very low standards, and it makes me wonder what was wrong with those who enforced it. In this movie, I could not help but feel bad for those that were treated so horribly and it makes me glad that it is viewed as a horrible treatment now. Now that the Holocaust is recognized as a terrible time, it has been a foundation for how people are treated.
And just as inevitable as war itself, are the effects that it has on its participants. Wars change the people that fight in them and one thing in particular causes people to behave differently and can ultimately change them. That one thing is shame. Shame is a powerful motivator for people in general, and when it is applied to war, the effects can be great. It can motivate people to go to war, and dictate what actions they take while they are there.
We must not forget what they went through, lest we allow it to happen again. Millions of people died due to the prejudice of a political regime. The treatment of the Jewish people in Terezín concentration camp draws parallels to the treatment of North Korean political prisoners in camps through the country. In the novel Escape from Camp 14, Shin Dong-hyuk discusses what it was like growing up within the prison camp and his subsequent escape. He faced extreme prejudice based on his family’s perceived infractions against the regime.
In order to ensure that an event similar to the Holocaust does not happen again as a nation we need to be aware. For starters we need to know our history; how and why the Holocaust took place. I think we also need to take a lot at other mass genocides/ethnic cleansings (Rwandan genocide, ethic cleansings in Bosnia, as well as the genocide committed against Native Americans on U.S. soil.) In generally we need to try to more excepting towards those who are different then us. The Holocaust happened because people were led to believe that Jewish people were horrid and to blame for Germany’s poor economic condition.
Do you know how many Jewish peoples and other minorities that were slaughtered during the Holocaust? There was up to 6 million Jews and and 7 million Soviet civilians. Many gypsies, gays, and blacks were killed as well. These people died in numerous, unpleasant ways, like gas chambers, guns, fire, starvation, and disease. The prisoners in the Holocaust were tormented and treated so cruelly, and the acts so inhumane, that bystanders had to resist, help, and fight back against the Nazis even if the consequences were death.
Being held guarded during the Holocaust caused suffrage and deaths. During the era of the Holocaust, German authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived “racial inferiority”. People were also imprisoned, enslaved, and murdered. These people included Roma, those with mental or physical disabilities, and homosexuals. The Holocaust was
Our society has gone through many life changing events all throughout the course of history. Many of these events are the type that affects not one or two individuals, but thousands and even millions, like the unspeakable terror attacks of September eleven. The Holocaust is one these occurrences that affected the entire world. What is the Holocaust? Why do we teach it to our children in school?
