One might read the novel and wonder whether Eliezer’s text is reliable or not. Although there seems to be minimal inaccuracies regarding the specifics of the events, Night by Eliezer Wiesel is an overall accurate resource. The inequality to the Jews during the Holocaust really had an effect on the country as a whole. As Eliezer sates, “From that moment on, everything happened very quickly. The race toward death had begun.
Moral Instinct The Holocaust was one of the most devastating times in history. The Jewish people endured more than just physical suffering but mental suffering. The Nazi Regime created many laws or “Anti-Jewish” decrees that deprived the Jewish people of any kind of civil rights or freedoms ("Holocaust Encyclopedia"). These Laws caused not only the Jewish people, but everyone in a German-occupied country to make decisions that not only affected themselves but their families and friends as well. One Jewish Decree caused all Jewish people to live in designated areas of German cities “Judenhauser”.
To what extent was Operation Barbarossa a turning point in attitudes towards the Jews in Europe There was definitely a turning point between 1938 and 19411 regarding attitudes towards the Jews in Europe. This is due to a combination of events, plans and policies that took place including “territorial solutions” and significant events combining together to change attitudes towards Jews. In 1941 the Nazis’ solution to the ‘Jewish problem’ was still fairly territorial. They had tried a number of plans to move the Jews out of Germany and attempted to deport them using a poorly planned attempt to move them to a Lublin reservation in Poland, within a few weeks there was a ban on new transport and the plan eventually dissolved. In 1940, the Nazis had set up ghettos in Germany and moved Jews into them as a means to isolate them and control them; they used the abandoned houses and businesses for the re-settling of ethnically German people.
It is heavily influenced by Madeline L’Engle’s Christianity, but many of its most vocal critics complained about what they saw as anti-Christian material. It is a sign of the times in which it was born, but timeless in its concepts and settings. Unlike many science fiction novels, it manages to avoid becoming dated, because L’Engle managed to keep its settings rather mundane at the same time as fantastical. Author Anna Quindlen calls it “the fiction of science” (Wrinkle 84). The late 1950s and early 1960s were a time of transition in the United States.
The housing, food, and living conditions were outrageous.

Have you ever heard about the horrific persecution in our world? The Holocaust in Germany, 1933 was a methodical bureaucratic persecution to exonerate all Jews (“The Holocaust”). The Armenian Genocide was the obliteration of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire in Turkey, 1915 (“Armenian Genocide”).These events might be analogous but they also have differences. Who were the persecutors in these genocides? In the same way of the persecutors of the Holocaust and Armenian genocide were they were being oppressed to religious people and different races of people.
The Jews were suffering in concentration camps and they needed a place to live and call their home (Brenner, 2009). In addition, the Jews were not recognized at the time and every nation regarded them as displaced persons. Therefore, the need to find them a home was high and the British government in collaboration with the United Nations decided Palestine as the ideal destination for the displaced Jews (Barnai, 2010). The British government petitioned the Jews to be migrated to Palestine because in the European countries the Jews were killed and discriminated. A good home was to be found early therefore, Palestine ended up being the ideal nation for them.

Two great works known for irony, in one a great author, Albert Camus, creates a masterpiece and in the other, a masterpiece creates a great author, Shirley Jackson. Camus had been known to the world and his works had been studied even without the presence of "l'hote" or known as The Guest, but Shirley Jackson was a nobody till she wrote The Lottery and stunned the world. Both works are studied as pieces of irony but I believe both to be great works in other, with a twist of irony in the conclusion, although, worth mentioning, the ironies both serve to the other purpose rather than the plane simple sake of irony. The Guest, a pen and paper advert for Paul Sartre's Existentialism, carries traces of this thought throughout, while, The Lottery, being a symbolic society questioner, with its many symbols undermines the American society. But both short stories carry within them even more, they talk of breaking the norms, they speak of minorities, giving up, and waste of life.
