In my opinion, genocide is the most horrifying crime against humanity of all times, that should be studied and remembered so the history wouldnt 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 Gerdas 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 didnt 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 right. Those people are heroes, who were fighting for better future, who had hopes and action.
I admire those brave individuals, so as the ancient book of Talmud, which states “To save one life is as if you have saved the world”. GoodOverall, in my opinion resistance was always there in better and worst time; however, the untrained humans with limited artillery can only do so much. Nonetheless, I believe the nutrition and inhumane treatment also played a role, so as Gerdas view, where feelings of hope for better had stepped as quiet waiter. Another aspect that is an outcome of WW2 is a psychological stain that had basically killed a whole generation of people, even if the physical abilities were there to live, the mind was surrounded by years of fear, animal alike treatment and death. After a person had seen such unimaginable horror for almost a decade and lived through that cheos, it would of being impossible to come back to life as it is known daily.
The silent photographs from that period of time scream out the unspeakable pain and fright that once was associated with the survived. The mind that was a part of that “horror” picture simply cannot get over such .
