Transcript of Night

Night
The word “Holocaust” comes from Ancient Greek: “destruction by fire."

It has meaning in Jewish culture, too— “a sacrificial offering burned at the altar.”

The word was not really used before WWII. It came to symbolize the mass killing of millions of people of the Jewish faith.

What does the word “Holocaust” mean?
Starting the Journey to Understanding an Unimaginable Tragedy…



The Beginnings of the Holocaust

The Jews are a religious AND ethnic group hailing from Jerusalem.

Jews read the Torah (a religious book similar to the Bible) and practiced the Old Testament long before Christianity existed. Judaism dates back before the Roman Empire!

Jewish people you might know: Ms. Z, Ms. Silverman, and Ms. Wallace!
Who Are the Jews and What Do They Believe?
Anti-Semitism is a hatred of the Jewish culture and Jewish faith.

Anti-Semites view Jews as outcasts and people who do not belong in common society. Because of this, Jewish people have had to move around the world a lot in the last two thousand years.

Anti-Semitism was one of the biggest causes of the Holocaust because it instilled fear in the German people that Jews were dangerous and needed to be eliminated.
What is Anti-Semitism?
The Holocaust took place during World War II on the continent of Europe. (1939-1945)

Holocaust refers to the period of time when the German Nazi Government set out to systematically eliminate all Jews.

Over 6 million Jewish people were killed during this time period.

What Was the Holocaust?
The Nazi’s were a party in the German government who came to power in the 1930’s. They had a specific idea of what a “perfect” society (or a utopia!) called the “Aryan Race”. To make this a reality the Nazis decided to kill all of those people who did not fit into their picture of a perfect society.
Who Were the Nazis and Where Were They in Power? ?

Adolf Hitler became the leader of Nazis in the early 1930’s.
He was a skilled public speaker whose goal was to give the German people more power. One of those ideas was to make people hate the Jews, who were the most populated people in Germany at the time.

Who Was the Leader of the Nazis at the time of the Holocaust?

Germany was weakened and poor after WWI, which allowed for new leadership in the government.
When Hitler came into power, he used anti-Jewish fears as part of his plan to take over Germany and establish a racially “pure” Germany.
He wanted The Third Reich to be the most powerful empire the world had ever seen, and would get rid of all “enemies” in their way.
The Jews were seen as the first enemy.

CHARACTERIZATION
By what characters:

, the author/narrator IS our protagonist (Elie), so what the author says is the same as what a character says.
WAYS TO FIND CHARACTERIZATION:
Direct: what the author or narrator says. (TELL)

Indirect: based on words or actions. (SHOW)
DIRECT VS. INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATION
Dynamic characters change or grow throughout the text. We learn the THEME or MAIN IDEA through what they learn.

Static characters do not change.


This unit, we really want to pay attention to how or why Elie Wiesel is changing!

Pick one of the motifs we studied today. Using two quotes, explain what the theme of night is based on this motif.

Make sure that your sentence quotes correctly and is at least 5 sentences long!
A motif is a SYMBOL that REPEATS itself over and over throughout the text.

We find motifs by looking at what SYMBOLS or IDEAS keep coming up in the text. One way is to ask yourself:

Have I seen this WORD or OBJECT before in the text? What could it SYMBOLIZE?


Authors use motifs to show THEME! (the MORAL or LESSON of the text)

One easy way to find theme is to ask yourself this question:

What does the novel teach me about this MOTIF?

MOTIFS + THEME
When humans are given ANIMAL or non-human characteristics.

(hint: HUMAN is part of the word! De-HUMAN-ization)

The root of de = TAKE AWAY. So dehumanization means to TAKE away HUMAN qualities.

Think of dehumanization as the opposite of PERSONIFICATION!

DEHUMANIZATION
When AN OBJECT represents an IDEA bigger than itself or just the obvious.
→ color in The Giver
→The black box in “The Lottery”
→ Chekhov’s gun
Ways to find a symbol: Ask yourself, “Does this object represent a DEEPER idea?

REVIEW

I've noticed in our writing that we don't know how to properly write the titles of our texts. This is very important for writing!
REVIEW
When we have the title of BOOKS, we underline.
Ex: Night by Elie Wiesel

When we have titles of POEMS,
we put it in quotation marks.
Ex: "Harlem" by Langston Hughes.

We also put SHORT STORIES in quotes!
Ex: "The Treasuer of Lemon Brown" by Walter Dean Myers

REVIEW
Newspapers are put in italics.
Ex: The New York Times

But article titles are put in quotes.
Ex: "Students at MASE score big on the TCAP" --New York Times

Last but not least, we always put our citations in parenthesis ( ) and put the line number inside!
Ex: (Night, pg 9)

TODAY'S REFLECTION QUESTION:
Has there ever been a time in your live where you felt dehumanized? Summarize it for me!
In order for us to finish Night, we must figure out how quickly we can read it! Your assignment is to read 10 pages silently, and calculate how long it took you to read those 10 pages! Ms. Wallace will put a time on the board.
MAKE SURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE READING. WE ARE PLAYING A GAME BASED ON THESE 10 PAGES AFTER THIS ACTIVITY, AND THERE IS A PRIZE!
_____
QUOTE GAME
5. What is the only thing that matters to Elie by the middle of the chapter?
2. What is Elie told he has to give up in order to get in a good Kommando with his father?
3. What is the dentist looking for?
4.Find a simile!
6. Find an example of foreshadowing or flash-forward:
1. Find a quote that describes Elie’s new tent leader
Intolerable
(p. 23): too bad, harsh or severe to be accepted
Constraints
(p. 23): things that limit or restrict someone or something
Irrevocably (p. 24): impossible to change
Hermetically
(p. 24): closed tightly so that no air can go in or out
Pious
(p. 24): extremely religious; devout
Convoy (p. 28): a group of vehicles traveling together

HELPFUL VOCAB:
2. Respect your book.
Do not say anything to put down Elie Wiesel or his memoir. We cannot possibly understand the anguish he has been through, so it would be ignorant and wrong to make negative comments.


3. Respect the class/teacher. If you made fun of the work your boss made you do, you would be fired. Remember--school is practice for work!
So do not make negative comments about the class, the material, or the work you are doing. BE POSITIVE!

SOCRATIC SEMINAR
4. Enjoy it!!!

Believe it or not, this can be an open and honest space for you to share your emotions. You can explore themes that you might not have covered in class yet, and you can ask interesting questions.

This discussion can go in cool directions, if you are willing to be mature and respectful!
Besides, if you haven't been doing too well on our quizzes, this could boost your grade = D
SOCRATIC SEMINAR
1. Respect your peers. Do not say anything you know would insult them.
If you disagree with them, try to ask specific questions about their thought process.
If you feel as though someone hasn't spoken a lot, try to hold back and give others a chance.

QUIZ FRIDAY!
“Let’s hope we don’t regret it, Eliezer.”
AFTER THE WAR, I learned the fate of those who had remained at the infirmary. They were, quite simply,
liberated by the Russians, two days after evacuation.” (82)

what type of irony is this and why?
1. VERBAL Irony: a contrast between what is said or written and what is really meant
• Words are used to suggest the opposite of their usual meanings
• Often sarcastic
• Example: The water in the building will be turned off for the next six hours. How wonderful! (Having the water off is the opposite of wonderful.)
• You got straight A’s on your report card? I’m so disappointed!
(The speaker feels the opposite of disappointed.)
SITUATIONAL IRONY
3. Dramatic Irony: when the AUDIENCE or READER knows something a character does not know
• A contradiction between what a character thinks and what the reader or audience knows to be true
• Example: Juliet drinks the poison that puts her to sleep and everyone, including Romeo, thinks she is dead, but the audience knows that she is faking her death to be with Romeo.

DRAMATIC IRONY
VERBAL IRONY
TYPES OF IRONY
• Someone says, “Speak up!” to a person who is already shouting.
Is this ironic?
What kind of irony is it?
• A puppy outwitting humans on a television comedy gets laughs because it is what type of irony?
• In a cartoon, we see Elmer Fudd trying to sneak up on Bugs Bunny. We know he is actually sneaking up on an angry bear, but Elmer does not.
What kind of irony is this?
Irony: A contrast between EXPECTATIONS and REALITY.

Irony can create powerful effects, from humor to tragedy. It is the term often used to describe literary techniques that involve surprising, interesting or amusing CONTRADICTIONS.

2. SITUATIONAL Irony: when what happens is very different from what we expected would happen
• When an event occurs that directly contradicts the expectations of the characters, the reader or the audience.
• This often causes SURPRISE
• Example: A kidnapping victim gains control over his kidnappers.
• Example from Night: __________________________________________________________________________________

But what would an appropriate punishment be? Many felt no punishment would be too severe for the Nazis who had brutally killed millions of people. Churchill believed that Nazi leaders should be "hunted down and shot." Others said that they did not want a repeat of the Treaty of Versailles disaster. Ultimately, they agreed to have a trial. But who would go on trial? Where would it be held?



The trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany in a pl ace called the Palace of Justice.
The Nuremberg Trials put people on trial for waging an aggressive war, and committing “crimes against humanity.” Some people felt that these were not actually crimes and criticized the process. 22 Nazi leaders were put on trial and three were found innocent, three were sentenced to life in prison, four were given 10-20 years in prison, and 12 were sentenced to death.
PALACE OF JUSTICE

The trial at Nuremberg was the first time a nation's leaders were put on trial by the international community. However, the trials were not enough to make up for the horrible events of the Holocaust. At the end of World War II, the Allies decided to form the United Nations (UN), where countries could get together and prevent future wars. In 1948, the UN created the state of Israel, a sacred land for the Jewish faith.

LEGACY
At the end of the war in 1943, United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin said they wanted to bring Nazi war criminals to justice.

DEBATING PUNISHMENTS
NUREMBERG TRIALS
The Holocaust was an unprecedented crime--a crime composed of millions of murders, wrongful imprisonments, and tortures, of rape, theft, and destruction. In the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust, the world was faced with a challenge--how to seek justice for an almost unimaginable scale of criminal behavior. The International Military Tribunal (IMT) held at Nuremberg, Germany, attempted to broach this immense challenge on a legal basis. [A tribunal is a court.] The IMT was a watershed moment in international justice. The commemoration of this anniversary coincides with numerous atrocities occurring in our world today-crimes that again challenge us to ask: Can justice ever be done?
Nazi Germany planned and implemented the Holocaust within the devastating maelstrom [violent, turbulent situation] of World War II. It was in this context that the IMT was created, a trial of judgment for war crimes. The IMT was not a court convened to mete out punishment for the Holocaust alone. The tribunal was designed to document and redress crimes committed in the course of the most massive conflict the world has ever known. In October 1945, the IMT formally indicted the Nuremberg defendants on four counts: crimes against peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and conspiracy to commit these crimes.
The Holocaust was, in the legal language of the IMT, “a crime against humanity.” Convened within months of the end of the war, from the trial’s first public session on November 20, 1945, until the verdicts were delivered on October 1, 1946, the tribunal at Nuremberg set precedents: in international law, in documentation of the historical record--in seeking some beginning, however inadequate, in the search for justice.
