I am clearly not a Holocaust survivor but the Holocaust did happen because there is so much stuff and artifacts that are around that it would be hard to believe that the Holocaust never happened. Holocaust deniers just do not take the time to listen or visit camps and do not have an open mind about it so they are not willing to learn about it.
Browning explain to us that this men were not chosen individual, nor were they chosen because of a particular reason. The reserve police battalion were first assigned to massacre the Jews, but after that, they were assigned to clear the Jews ghettos and drive the residents onto trains that they would be transported to the extermination camps. But he made us understand that the police battalion who committed this massacre had the opportunity not to do it when Trapp, their commander said, “If any of you older men among them did not feel up to th... ... middle of paper ... ...seeing their friends, father, or brother dying that way made them to become cruel among themselves, with everyone consent just with his own survival.

Night revolves around Eliezer's emotional journey from a Orthodox Jewish boy to a corpselike boy who questions the existence of God and the humanity of man. One question that the Jewish people constantly ask themselves is whether or not they could of escaped the Holocaust had they acted more wisely. In Night, there were many times when the Jews of Sighet had a glimpse of what was in store for them, but chose not to believe it. The Jews are unable to imagine the horrors in the concentration camps due to typical human inability to realize the cruelty of which men are capable. Even when they arrived at Auschwitz, they continued to believe that it was just a work camp.
Foss A closer examination of Night helps us to think about another part of humanities’ nature the gaining of, use of, and abuse of power. Night helps us to gain insight into more aspects of humanity and the many historical, social, religious, political, and economic factors that caused the Holocaust, and helps us they gain a perspective on how humanity can so actively and evilly, pursue such sadistic methods of executions and how a convergence of factors can contribute to the disintegration of civilized values.

3. This is a well known quote, and I thought about it a little bit, and I started to think about all of the bystanders of the Holocaust, not, Jewish, not Aryan, just there. They too must have been scared by it. 4. While I was standing there I felt like I was actually inside of a ghetto.
The Holocaust is a tragic event that happened not so long ago, but many people have already forgotten about this horrible event. Today, there are only few survivors left to tell their own personal stories of the Holocaust and what they had to go through. But what will happen when there's no survivor left to tell his/her story or speak of the truth that the Holocaust really did happen? Who will speak out for them and millions of Jews who had died in the Holocaust? Who will help defend them?
he shows us how before the war nobody could imagine such horrible events occurring. the book sends a message stating that everything bad was happening around them the jews were still hoping for better times. Wiesel shows us that still believed in humanity, they did not think such bad events can occur and how even though they had multiple chance of escaping they did not. Night is a true story of a young boy, Eliezer, experiencing world war II as a jew. his terrible journey started in Sighet, Romania where he gets separated from all the women in his family, leaving him only with his dad.
Nobody noticed when a civil war in the former Yugoslavia turned into almost a replica of the Nazi's Holocaust. Concentration camps, mass graves, genocide, just as in Germany, yet nobody noticed. While less and less British people were getting educated on the Holocaust, less and less noticed the concentration camps, totalitarianism, and religious persecution in the People's Republic of China. Less and less noticed because less and less people knew that they should notice. Therefore, if the children of Britain do not learn about the Holocaust, they will be condemned to repeat it.
This event in history helped us to realize that forming wrong ideas about a group can lead to major problems in the end. It also teaches us that power can be abused and people will suffer if the problem isn't recognized durring its early stages. Studying about the Holocaust helps us learn that everyone is different and we must learn to accept each other's differences so that hate towards certian people will not cause the same event to happen again. Learning about the events in history helps us to take measures to prevent the worst things from happening again.
