anti-racism. The author’s perspective is that it is
important to tell this story to keep
the awareness of what happened
at the death camps. Vittello, P The Holocaust was a terrible event that affected millions of people around the world. The Holocaust took place during World War Two and lasted six years (1939 – 1945). 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.
