...leader of the Nazi Germany. The Jews were hated the most by the Nazis because Hitler blamed the Jews from Germany defeat in World War I. This hate towards the Jews from Hitler led to “The Holocaust”. The Holocaust was the systematic annihilation of six million Jews by the Nazis during World War II. Even though we know millions of people died in this sadly event, many people survived, as well. Many years after the Holocaust one of the survivors Elie Wiesel wrote his book Night telling his life story in the Holocaust. Wiesel was the first to give the name "Holocaust", which literally means destruction by fire, to the experience of European Jews in World War II. Elie Wiesel was a Jewish from northern Transylvania annexed by Hungary. Wiesel started the most difficult journey of his life when Nazi German forces took him and his family to the concentration camps. Night is basically about Eliezer struggles with his father throughout the Holocaust and how Eliezer managed to survived. Wiesel narrates in his book Night his experience in the concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald in 1944–1945 at the height of the Holocaust and toward the end of the Second World War. Some of the most important sceneries in the book are the Sighet Ghettos, Aushwitz, Death March, Buchenwald and Liberation. First, everything began when he was 15 years old and German forces took him and his family to the Sighet Ghettos where Jews......

...procedures. Recalculation is to determine the mathematical accuracy of the records and documents. Re-performance refers to auditors’ independent execution of procedures and controls. Question #3 The audit evidence to support the valuation of the investments is not sufficient either. The main reason behind is that the engagement team does not clearly identify the definition of the fair value of the investment, the date of the fair value that is provided by the Union, the risk associated with each investment and lastly, the procedures that can be used to reduce the risks to the acceptable level. In the case, the engagement team just received a really generic document from the Union indicating the simplest numbers (shares and NAV) that Ellie Enterprise invested. This document is far away from the standards that auditors should have followed to complete the valuation of investments. The big picture of the audit procedures for determining the fair value of investments is as followed: “ • Establishes a consistent definition of fair value and consistent method of determination • Establishes a framework for measuring fair value • Clarifies the definition of fair value within that framework • Expands disclosures on fair value measurements” Hence, the very first thing for the engagement team to do is to clearly identify the definition of the fair value and include fair value measurements in disclosures of the financial statements. Then, the engagement team should let......

...experience is to betray it.” Ellie Wiesel states “I owe them my roots and my memory. I am duty bound to serve as their emissary, transmitting the history of their disappearance, even if it disturbs, even if it brings me pain (p.74).” Ellie finds that he needs to tell the story of the dead. The millions of people who died in the holocaust need their stories told. There memory’s need to be publicized so that something as horrible as the holocaust will never happen again If the stories of the dead are not shared te loss of their lives would be worth nothing. The terrifying story’s that are told by Ellie and other writers bring the pain to the reads. It sends chills deep into our minds that make us sympathize for these people. The readers of the Twenty-First Century need to understand how something as evil and maniacal as the holocaust can never happen again. The people of Germany were falsely eluded to join forces with Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Regime who promised them everything they ever wanted. We need to know that genocide is horrible and never right in any instance. These people suffered horrible deaths and with the persuasion of one psychotic man over a million Jewish people were killed relentlessly. I think that after hearing the stories of the dead people will never allow something like the holocaust to ever happen again. It is meant to stick deep into our minds and discourage any thought to such racial inferiority. Ellie Wiesel felt an emotional and......

Rhetorical Analysis of the Perils of Indifference by Elie Wiesel

...Rhetorical Analysis of The Perils of Indifference by Elie Wiesel As part of the Millennium Lecture Series hosted by the White House, notable author, Noble Peace Prize Winner, and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel delivered the speech The Perils of Indifference on April 12, 1999. He delivered this speech in order to inspire the American people to take action in times of human suffering, injustice, and violence, in order to prevent events like the Holocaust from happening again in the future. Through the use of the modes of persuasion, his rhetorical situation, and word choice, Wiesel successfully appeals to his audience of President Clinton and his wife, the members of Congress, Ambassador Holbrooke, his “excellencies” and the rest of the American public. Wiesel’s main point in his speech is that of indifference and what can come about because of it. In order to successfully define indifference to the audience and persuade them to never be indifferent in the future, Wiesel defines its etymology, as “no difference” and uses numerous comparisons on what may cause indifference, as “a strange and unnatural state in which the lines blur” in circumstances like light and dark and good and evil. To prove that indifference is both a sin and a punishment, Wiesel appeals to logos and ethos, stating that he is aware of how tempting it may be to be indifferent and that it can be easier to avoid something rather than take action against it. He believes that indifference benefits the......

Is Ellie Wrong to Have Killed the Soldiers

...‘Is Ellie wrong to have killed the soldiers? In the novel, ‘Tomorrow When the War Began’, by John Marsden, throughout the ending, including chapters 7/8, 11 and the last chapter killings of the soldiers occur. It focuses on the question, ‘Is Ellie wrong to have killed the soldiers?’ In some instances Ellie is right to kill the soldiers, for example; Ellie was right to have killed the soldiers as it was in self-defence; it was either they kill her or she kills them. To protect her friends from the worse she made a hard and terrible discussion to take another person’s life. In other instances Ellie is wrong to kill the soldiers, for example; Ellie could have just wounded them and give them a chance to retreat instead of killing them. In chapters 7 and 8, more than one act of killing occurs, the first is the dead of most of the pet and farm animals which is unusual as most animals could have been used as source of food and a companion and the second is different, Ellie is forced to kill the soldiers as they become a fret to her and her friends.

...Tissues Squamous Epithelial Tissue Squamous epithelial tissues are thin and flat, scale-like in appearance, tend to have larger, elliptically-shaped nuclei. Squamous epithelial tissue are used for filtration and diffusion. Due to their simple and thin construct, they allow for easy transmembrane movement. Squamous epithelium is found in locations where rapid diffusion or filtration take place. In the kidney, simple squamous epithelium lines the Bowman’s capsule and the glomerulus. Filtration and diffusion is instrumental to the kidney's function, as the kidney filters about 180 litres of blood per day. Simple squamous epithelium also makes up the alveoli in the lungs, where rapid gas exchange occurs, as oxygen enters the bloodstream through alveolar blood vessels and carbon dioxide exits as waste. Cuboidal Epithelial Tissue These tissues are equally wide as they are tall, creating a square profile with a spherical nucleus at its centre. Cuboidal tissues are able to provide a layer of protection from abrasion, foreign particles, invading bacteria and excessive water loss. In the kidney these distinct surfaces allow the simple cuboidal cells to facilitate in the absorption and transportation of substances that are filtered by the kidney. In the proximal convoluted tubules, the apical surface of the epithelium is lined with microvilli, creating a brush border, giving it a fuzzy appearance. The microvilli can aid in helping to transport material by “brushing” the......

Elie Wiesel Night Quotes

...Why, but why should I bless Him? In every fiber, I rebelled. Because He had had thousands of children burned in his pits? Because He kept six crematories working night and day, on Sundays and feast days? Because on His great might, He had created Auschwitz, Bierkenau, Buna, and so many factories of death" (64)? "So much has happened within such a few hours that I had lost all sense of time. When had we left our houses? And the ghetto? And the train? Was it only a week? One night- one single night" (34)? "I did not fast, mainly to please my father, who had forbidden me to do so. But further, there was no longer any reason why I should fast. I no longer accepted God's silence. As I swallowed my bowl of soup, I saw in the gesture an act of rebellion and protest against Him" (66). "Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky. Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever. Never shall I forget that nocturnal silence which deprived me, for all eternity, of the desire to live. Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never" (32). "To hang......

...PART I Night In 1941 Ellie lived in Transylvanian, there he studied Talmud and other Jewish studies, such as Kabbalah. After learning with Moshe the Beadle, the Hungarians evacuated all foreign Jews as-well with Moshe. Moshe was able to escape and returned several months later, and explained the brutal treatment that they encountered, but most people did not believe him. 1944 the Nazis gained power in Hungry, and all Jews were crowded into a small ghetto. After a while the Nazis started to deport all the Jews in the ghetto to Auschwitz. On the train the Jews were packed in, with almost no air to breathe, everyone was thirsty and hungry. After some days of traveling the Jews arrived in Czech, and a German officer takes over the train. The officer warned everyone that to give of their valuables or get shot. The train doors were then nailed to prevent people from escaping. Madame Schächter, was the first person to go crazy on the train, she starts to yell about a fire, which is not there. After some time a few boys beat her to silent as her son watches in fear, but the next night she started to yell once again. The Jews arrive in Auschwitz, but it was not as they have been told. They were told although it is a labor camp; the families will be kept as one. As the train traveled through the barb wire they see chimneys of smoke, and there is terrible smell, which they later find out that it is human flesh. The camp that they arrived in is the processing camp for Auschwitz. At......

Elie Wiesel Speech

...(1)Mr. President, Mrs. Clinton, members of Congress, Ambassador Holbrooke, Excellencies, friends: Fifty-four years ago to the day, a young Jewish boy from a small town in the Carpathian Mountains woke up, not far from Goethe's beloved Weimar, in a place of eternal infamy called Buchenwald. He was finally free, but there was no joy in his heart. He thought there never would be again. (2)Liberated a day earlier by American soldiers, he remembers their rage at what they saw. And even if he lives to be a very old man, he will always be grateful to them for that rage, and also for their compassion. Though he did not understand their language, their eyes told him what he needed to know -- that they, too, would remember, and bear witness. (3)And now, I stand before you, Mr. President -- Commander-in-Chief of the army that freed me, and tens of thousands of others -- and I am filled with a profound and abiding gratitude to the American people. (4)Gratitude is a word that I cherish. Gratitude is what defines the humanity of the human being. And I am grateful to you, Hillary -- or Mrs. Clinton -- for what you said, and for what you are doing for children in the world, for the homeless, for the victims of injustice, the victims of destiny and society. And I thank all of you for being here. (5)We are on the threshold of a new century, a new millennium. What will the legacy of this vanishing century be? How will it be remembered in the new millennium? Surely it will be judged, and......

Elie Wiesel Book Review

..."I pray to the God within me for the strength to ask Him the real questions." (Wiesel 30). Moishe is among the first prisoners taken by Germans and when he manages to escape and tell people of what Germans were doing to prisoners, he is taken for insane. There then follows a trail of events where he undergoes a series of bizarre encounters including the loss of his sisters and mother. This was a very trying time for Elie in which life drives out the innocence from him completely. In the concentration camps, where they are taken to as Jews, they are subjected to incessant torture and Elie witnesses babies burning in furnaces. The aim of this essay is trying identifying various ideas in the book written by Wiesel, identifying their changes, and at last draft a conclusion from these ideas as well as marking a significant change in his life since it takes a toll on his personal relationship with God. Changes in ideas about God and Humanity by Elie Wiesel From an innocent religious boy, Wiesel was geared up towards studying theology, life deprived him off the faith and he lost the close relationship with God. At some instance, he cursed when his father prayed that Gods name be sanctified and exalted. In Buna, Elie and other prisoners lost their faith and humanity as well in an attempt to struggle through a life where they are made to see their fellow prisoners get hanged (Wiesel). Life becomes a sequence of migration from one camp to the next where those......

...| Night: By Eli Wiesel Essay Word Count:665 By: Carlos Guerrero Prof. Ted Johnston English 1301 TR 11:30 08 November 2014 We can know the end of the story just by knowing that Ellie Wiesel wrote the book. We know it because this book is about survival. Physically we know Ellie Wiesel survived the holocaust, but does any psychological or spiritual part of him died during the holocaust? Elie Wiesel wrote about all the horrible torture, brutality, degradation, lost, and inhumanities he suffered by the Nazis just because he’s Jewish. Considering Elie was just a teenager, all he had to go through could turn his faith, religion, humanity, or beliefs. Before the Nazis took Elie and his family we could notice that Elie was a strong, religious boy who wanted to learn the Cabbala. Moshe the Beadle taught him it, and answered all Elie’s questions. By the point of Elie learning the Cabbala his faith was very strong. Elie compared praying with breathing, it is something so important for him that he does it without thinking. He’s faith in god is unconditional, and he believes since God is good and its everywhere, then his world and everything in it must be good too. I believe Elie knowing the Cabbala took an important role in his spiritual survival. Elie Wiesel was devoted to his faith to God, humanity of others, and a sense of justice in the world; which eventually we know are beliefs challenged by the holocaust events. One of the first events occurred to Elie......

Jaclson Trial

...people through hardships or traumatic experiences is bonds with other people or bonds with certain beliefs. Elie Wiesel in his novel Night, a novel about Wiesel’s life during Holocaust, displayed many of these bonds. Wiesel documented people’s bonds with their Jewish faith to stay alive for the majority of those who suffered through the holocaust were Jews. He told of bonds to oneself to stay alive although quite selfish. Finally, Wiesel utilized the close relationships between family members to argue that family bonds give individuals a reason to live. Wiesel first proves that family bonds help individuals survive by showing the father son relationship between Elie’s father and himself. This is seen throughout the entire novel. It is seen when they reassure each other that Elie’s mom and Tzipora, his sister, will be alright as they are separated. They are being sent to certain death but Elie and his father try and comfort each other so that they do not breakdown and basically die at the loss of their family members. Another instance of the family bond saving one of their lives is when they were on the train cars going to Buchenwald. The Nazi’s had just shouted to drop all the dead into the snow. Two men came to take Elie’s father for he looked dead, but Elie saved him saying “’No’ I cried ‘he isn’t dead! Not yet!’… He was breathing weakly. ‘You see…’” (Wiesel 94). This clearly shows that because of Elie’s family bond with his father made him save his father’s......

Essay on Night, by Elie Wiesel

...Faith plays a big role in times of trial because it gives someone a fighting force behind conquering whatever they are going through. In the articles read in class, through all of the times of trial, faith came shining through the storm. In the article “The Making, and Unmaking, of a Child Soldier” by Ishmael Beah, Ish becomes a child soldier and goes through years of death and killing without even really knowing it. One day on his road to recovery he started befriending a nurse named Esther. At first he did not want to hear a word she said, but she soon started to grow on him; “At first I detested her intrusions. But slowly I came to appreciate them, even looked forward to them. It was like at the center; most boys found a staff member whom they eventually began to trust. Mine was Esther.” (Beah-9). Ish’s family had been killed when he was a boy and he had nobody for a family, he fought for himself and had no one. So when Esther came along he naturally did not trust her but it took faith to branch out and connect, and after he did he became reunited with his uncle. Another example of faith is in the article “Rwandan Genocide Survivor…” by Bob Simon. A woman by the name of Immaculee hid out in a tiny bathroom for three months with six other women. Reading the paper chills to the bone about her experience and the fear she had of being found. When Bob asks Immaculee how they escaped she told them that “‘We stood up first of all, never really much standing up. I remember...

Dear Mr. Wiesel

...Dear Mr. Wiesel, I just finished reading your book Night. I read it in my English class. I found your story hard to read because of all that you and your family went through. It really made me think about what I would have done if I were in your situation. I’m not sure I could have been as strong as you. I don’t think I could relate anything in my life to that terrible time in yours. So in this letter I will be thanking you for you sacrifices in order to tell your story. When I was reading your book Night I couldn’t help but to think of my own family. It truly broke my heart when you said that was the last time you saw your mother and Tzipora forever. I couldn’t imagine having to go through that with my own family. But if I had to I would try to stay strong like you. I learned a lot more about the holocaust when I read your book. I learned that Hitler didn’t directly control each camp. Your experience has taught me so much. It has taught me to stay strong when I feel weak. A question I would like to ask you, Mr. Wiesel, is do you still have the tattoo the Nazi’s gave you? Did you get it removed? Personally I would keep it to remind me everyday that if I could survive the holocaust I could survive anything and thrive. Your story hit me on a personal level. I hate racism or anything of that nature. When I read this I got mad at Hitler. Mad at the entire Nazi party. Mad at other countries with the means to stop this massacre and didn’t. Is it okay to be mad Mr.......
