Transcript of E-Folio

E-Folio SOSE The Holocaust was a horrible event that killed many people. These people include Jews, people who were mistaken for Jews, black people, extremely sick people and people who spoke out against Hitler. Hitler was the leader of a group called The Nazis. The Nazis thought the Jews should be killed and a superior race should be made. This race was to be strong, athletic, have blue eyes and blonde hair. They were going to be called the Aryan race. The Nazis went and rounded up all Jewish people and took them to camps. At these camps people would be sorted into groups. The weaker people were killed straight away; however the stronger people would be forced to work for the Nazis. Hitler killed about six million Jews. To kill them they would be led into a chamber and gaseed to death. There were six concentration camps in Poland. Poland was the main killing zone for the Nazis. The war came to an end when Germany surrendered to the enemy in 1945. Some Nazis fled the country to escape their punishment, however most still were captured and received consequence for their actions. The central message of “The Friend at Midnight” is still relevant today because it can be applied to modern life. This can be done by changing the setting of the story to something more relevant to current times such as a sporting game of some sort. You could also change what the the man is persisting in. Maybe he is trying to master a new soccer or rugby skill. This is how this parable can be changed to a more modern version. At four-thirty on a Wednesday afternoon, a young boys’ soccer team was just finishing training. The young boy played for his school, Villanova College, and had been working on his corners for the past couple of weeks. He decided to ask his coach if he could stay a bit and help him for a while. The coach said he should just keep working on it at home. The boy was disappointed with his coach’s answer; however he took on-board what his coach had said. He went home started working on his corners. A week past and the boy had still not fully got his corners. The boy decided to ask his coach again. The coach gave the same response, “Just work on it at home.” The boy was very upset again but did not want to bother his coach, so he went home and did exactly as he was told. He went home and spent hours over the next week working on his corners. Wednesday came and the boy had still not mastered his corners. He decided he would ask his coach one last time and hope he would stay and help. The boy walked over to his coach after training and again asked his coach if he would stay and help him with his corners. The coach said “You are very persistent, that is a good trait to have. I will stay and help you.” The Boy was extremely happy. That weekend the boy got to take a corner right before the game finished. The score was 2-2 so it was vital that he took this perfectly. The boy kicked the ball up into the air. One of his team mates headed the ball right into the goal. The boy was so happy. After the game the boy thanked his coach so much for helping him.

In the Holocaust, the German Nazis did horrible things to many people because of their race, religion or health. The Nazis would capture Jews and take them to camps and make them work or just kill them straight away. This is a terrible thing to do and should never be acceptable. The leader of the Nazis was a man by the name of Adolf Hitler. This sick man thought it would be okay to exterminate the Jewish people and start his own race. This race was going to be called the Aryan Race. The Aryan Race had to have blonde hair and blue eyes. They also had to be strong and athletic. Hitler was a sick man who killed many people and led a brainwashed army. The Holocaust was a horrific event that destroyed many innocent lives. The poem “First they came for the Jews” by Pastor Martin Niemoller deals with the issue of the Holocaust in a powerful way.
Pastor Martin Niemoller deals with this issue in a powerful manor by discussing the important issue of the Holocaust. There are themes of loneliness and dispair in this poem. We can see this when the poet writes ‘ by that time there was no one left to speak up’.
The mood created is sorrow and loneliness. This is shown by the repetition of the Nazis taking away a specified group until finally there was no one left.
The poetic techniques used are repetition and alliteration. An example of repetition in this poem is how the poet continuously wrote ‘but I didn’t speak up because’. An example of alliteration is when the poet writes ‘Then they’.
The poem “First they came for the Jews” by Pastor Martin Niemoller confronts the issue of racism and the Holocaust in a strong and controlling way. ENGILISH First they came for the Jews.
But I didn’t speak up because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the communists.
But I didn’t speak up because I was not a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists.
But I didn’t speak up because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics.
But I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me.
And by that time no one was left to speak up. Poem Analysis First they came for the Jews Explanation Persuasive Paragraph The following e-folio will focus on the social justice issue of racism and more specifically the Holocaust. The Holocaust is a social justice issue because it affected millions of people and many more died in this horrific event. Over six million Jews were killed in the holocaust and one million two-hundred thousand were killed at a single death camp-Auschwitz. Over sixty-five percent of Europe’s Jews were killed in this horrible event and about three million of them were from the country of Poland. The purpose of this e-folio is to inform and explain what happened in the Holocaust, and also to raise awareness of this event. This e-folio contains three sections: SOSE, REPD and English. The SOSE section contains an explanation of the Holocaust. The REPD section contains a re-written parable and a paragraph about the morals and lessons learnt. In the English section there is a poem called “First they came for the Jews”. There is also an analysis of this poem included. Introduction This e-folio focuses on the issue of racism and the Holocaust. This issue is still relevant to us today in modern life. This is because it is important to remember those poor innocent people that lost their lives for no real reason. It is also important because the issue of racism is still one that we face in the modern day. It is important to have an understanding of the background and history of the Holocaust as it can educate us on wars of the modern age. It is also important to know about the Holocaust so we can understand what the Jewish people went through when Hitler and the Nazis did such horrific things to them. It is also vital to examine a range of different sources when studying this issue as it means that we can gain a range of different perspectives on it. We are able to view the perspective of a Nazi and it would be completely different to the perspective of a Jewish person. By using a Catholic perspective to view this social justice issue we can see other ways it could have possible be handled. Poetry is a way in which we are able to express our feelings towards the issue of racism and the Holocaust. It means that other people will be able to see our perspective on the issue. Poetry can be a more powerful way of expressing your feelings as opposed to simply writing them down or telling someone. Conclusion Levi, P. (2003). “The Holocaust”. White-Thomson Publishing: Lewes.
