Journal 1 entry: early 1942 How can they be so blind? Hitler was right about how we Germans should eliminate those filthy Jews. My fellow Nazi leaders and I do not understand why the worlds, besides our allies, are against us. We are not harming any humans, but instead exterminating those who wish to be human. Jews are the reason that jobs are not available for every German.
A hatred such as had never known before was coursing through Severus like poison. He could see Black laughing at him, next to Potter. He could hear their jeers, "How'd the exam go Snivelly? ""I was watching him, his nose was touching the parchment. There'll be great grease marks all over it, they won't be able to read a word.
They had been through such a terrible experience and others did nothing to help them! Elie states, “the Pentagon knew, the State Department knew. And the illustrious occupant of the White House then, who was a great leader...”. This makes people all over the world realize that so much could have been done to support and help those effected by the Holocaust. The ethos in Wiesel’s speech is the fact that he is a Holocaust survivor, a successful writer, and an activist.
Along with the farmers, many shopkeepers and small businesses were very receptive to the idea that their problems were due to Jewish Capitalism. The Nazis very effectively took advantage of the current economic situation, as they knew many ordinary Germans were desperate for a solution.

Has there ever been a time when you were so mad you just wanted to get someone back? You wanted your sweet revenge on someone who has hurt you in the past.
The second comment they made is what punched me back to reality; it made realize that this wasn’t a misunderstanding, rather it was certainty, and that it was actually happening right before my eyes. “When can we stop being friends with that loser, I’m sick of looking at his snobby face, I wish he was dead, that way we can get something out of it for my his so-called friends”, it felted as if my heart has been constantly stabbed with the sharpest knife ever.
