Transcript of The 8 Stages of Genocide: Night by Elie Wiesel

Step Four: Organization
Step One: Classification
Hitler and his followers thought that Jewish people were "inhuman," so he thought that they didn't deserve human rights. So most of the Jewish people had to pretend not to be Jews just so that they could live normally. (114) "Countless Jews had been passing as non-Jews."
Step Two: Symbolization
Hitler made all the Jews wear stars on their clothes so that the SS officers could tell them apart from everyone else, and so they could separate them from everyone. (11) "Three days later, a new decree: every Jew had to wear a yellow star."
Step Three: Dehumanization
In the book Night, it gives us a lot of examples of how the Jews were treated almost as if they were animals, that didn't deserve human rights. (24) "If anyone goes missing, you'll all be shot, like dogs."
Step Seven: Extermination
During the Holocaust, everything was organized, but the SS officers could basically do whatever they wanted. And so a lot of them let the power go to their heads. "...and had a glimpse of Idek and a young polish girl, half naked on a straw mat."
Step Five: Polarization
All the Jews were sent to live in the ghettos. This was the first step to polarization, and the Jews were not treated as equals. (11) "Then came the ghettos."
Throughout WW2 Hitler and his followers killed millions of people. And throughout the book Night, Elie tells us stories about innocent people being killed for being Jewish. (32) Children were thrown into the flames."
Step Eight: Denial
By blowing up the camp, they were trying to get rid of any trace of the horrors that had happened there that day. And yes maybe some thought killing people was wrong, but they all thought they were helping the world. (114) "Afterword, they would blow up the camp"
Step Six: Preparation
Jews were sent to live in certain streets, or areas in the ghettos. Hitler and his followers did this so that hey could isolate them from everyone else, and so that none of them would be able to escape. (11) "The barbed wire that encircled us."
