What Use Is{Was} This War ?

8672 words - 35 pages

World War II had stroked my soul not alike any other warfare. Holocaust, genocide, concentration camp were the nightmare terms that I had to grow up with. Certainly, every war leaves physical and psychiatric reflection on a nation; however, because it happened only fifty years ago, it took away lives of my relatives, this account of humanity couldn't be forgotten by me. The unfairness, cruelty and suffering that were expressed from Nazis arouse my curiosity of holocaust and humanities in our world of today. In my opinion, genocide is the most horrifying crime against humanity of all times, that should be studied and remembered so the history wouldn't repeat it self with the similar capacity. Nonetheless, I want to limit this essay on discussions of humanity and action it took up on resistant from nazi, the psychiatric stain the survived had to come back with; moreover, I am also planning to touch on the remembrance of holocaust in our small world. Masha - nice introduction. Genocide is horrific, but an important subject to study.One of the accounts described by Gerda Klein had touched on the subject of resistance. In the book, "all All but But my My lifeLife" she, the a concentration camp survival, states that simply not many believed or expected this these massacres from another human being. Due to a fact that through out school, life and experiences which surrounded us, everyone seem to think better of people and by using her instincts of past Gerda always hoped for the best. A relative thought does strike after Gerda's representation, when ideals of our civilization refer to humans as mostly reasonable, forgiven type of being on earth. Therefore, Gerda Klein inclination toward muteness of suffering is that the average human is incapable to ultimate cruelty, such that were experienced during genocide had played one of the roles through out efforts of resistance. Nicely stated.While, other author Dr Miklos Nyiszli, in "Auschwitz" brings up an example of resistance. There, the fighting was a though that was diminished by SS and Nazi movement. Nonetheless, the act of resistance implied careful planning by men of Sonderkommando who had given an incomparable price of life by facing their dreams of being apart of humanity and freedom. After all, the death caused by fighting for their life brought back some sort of ironic humanity to those prisoners by individualizing them from the rest of the massacre where they had no choice, no life and the death was just around the corner. From this point of view, the theoretical resistance was there; however, a lot of aspects didn't follow the line of success. InterestingThe last account on resistance, which I wanted to bring up, is full of living, heroic fighting. It happened in Warsaw and many other cities of Europe. There organized partisans, where fighting, by quietly standing up for them selves and others, by compromising and sacrificing their lives to be apart of normal life-span were human being have equal...
