I probably wouldn’t because there would be such a risk that all of my friends and family who would be killed before my eyes, and then the Nazis would kill me. But by all means, if the child can’t find another keeper or take care of himself/herself, I would take the child in and take care of him/her.
I believe that the responsibility of an individual who see an injustice should try and fix the injustice by using persuasion and reasoning. This wouldn’t have worked with Hitler because he was determined to kill the Jews. The ways of persuasion can solve a lot, if you know what to say and when to say it.
The Holocaust is still important because we have to remember the things in history that really plays an important part in our feelings toward other races. Hitler killed the Jews because he thought of them as a bunch of dirty scoundrels who are less than cockroaches, and needed to be executed by any means. These types of thoughts can start new conflicts like wars, maybe it might even drag us into WWIII. Einstein once said that he didn’t know what weapons we shall use in WWIII, but in World War IV, he said he we knows that we would use sticks and stones, because another war like WWII would destroy us all, and God would have to create the human race all over again.
In WWII, I probably wouldn’t have hidden a Jewish child especially if I were Polish because the Germans didn’t think highly of the Polish and used the death penalty more freely. Another reason I probably wouldn’t have helped a Jewish person at the time was because if I did get attached to the child and they were found out, the German solders would shoot the child and the rest of my family in front of my eyes, then shoot me.
I think that the responsibility of a person if they see an injustice happening is to try and help that person or thing that the injustice is happening to. It would be easier if you helped in a group. Even if you tried to reason with Hitler, you would probably be shot dead.
I think the Holocaust is still important because the things that happened then are still happening today with the people in Africa and in other places too. I also think that this event is important today because it shows us that a lot of the wars were started by hard feelings among different races.
I probably would take in a Jewish child even though my life and their life could be at risk, because the children shouldn’t be treated like that. I think that if I took in the Jewish child then they could live a little longer life then if they went to the concentration camp. I would also take them in because life wasn’t that good at the time so if I died then I could care less because life was so bad anyway.
I think that the responsibility of an individual who sees injustice should try to solve the problem. They should also try to help the person that the injustice is happening to. Even though your life could be a risk to stand up for an injustice, I would do it because they need to know what they are doing is wrong.
It think the Holocaust is still important today because it is still happen today in Africa. We as people need to see what the Holocaust is and what it does to people some people don’t even know what the Holocaust is. All I know that the Holocaust should be stopped and everyone should know about it.
I don’t think that I would have taken in a Jewish child. I think that I would have been afraid of being caught like most of the Germans. If you were to hide a Jewish child then you would be doing a very brave act. I think that if I hid a Jewish child I might be tortured and strangled just like what had happened to Mrs. Cooke’s uncle.
I think that the responsibility would be make that injustice into a pono act. If someone was being beat up I think that I would step in and stop the fight because fighting never got us anywhere in life the only thing that war gives us is a lot of mourning families, wounded soldiers, and hurt innocent people. Some injustices that many people try to stop because somebody belives in a paradigm so strongly that they can’t even be convinced like how Hitler was.
I think that it is important today because somewhere in the world a helpless person is being hurt by other individuals right now. Even after all those wars people just can’t stop fighting. Innocent people are getting hurt because of the Holocaust. In many places families are probably protecting little children, kind of like what some Germans did for the jewish children.
If I were living during WWII I probably wouldn’t help anybody for fears of me and my friends and family being tortured and then killed. I wouldn’t run around and report Jews to Hitler, or beat up Jews that I saw. I would help the child if I lived in a place where hardly anybody lived so there would be less chance that I would get caught.
I think that the responsibility of an individual if they saw an injustice happening to help the person that the injustice is happening to. If you managed to save the person then you would probably be followed home and killed in your sleep, if the people that you saved them from were Nazis.
I think that the Holocaust is still important today because it is still happening today in Africa and other places also. It is sad to see other human beings treated so poorly. No one should have to suffer such horrible treatment because others feel they are superior to you. We are fortunate that we here in the U.S. have freedom of speech and can say what we feel without the fear of being put to death. Many people today don’t have the freedoms we enjoy as a country, and too often we take them for granted.
If I was alive during world war two I would have hidden a Jewish child. The reason I would hide a Jewish child while of course risking my life is because it would be the right thing to save the people of the future or in other words save the children. If I die but the child I saved survived it would be good as long as the child survives to make more generations of people to come in the future.
I believe the responsebility of an individual that witnesses injustice should try reasoning with the person that was the origin of the injustice. But try not to resort to phisical contact or violence, phisical contact and violence should always be a last resort.
The Holocaust is very important in the modern world. The reason I said the holocaust is important in the modern world is because it is important that we remember how many people died in the the Holocaust that was started by Adolf Hitler. It is also important because if another Holocaust happens much more people will die due to the modern technology of today.
So it is important that we remember the Holocaust and remeber the stories of all the people that lived through it so that it may never happen again
