Transcript of Analyzing The Perils of Indifference

written by Elie Wiesel Analyzing The Perils OF Indifference Background Information To inform people of the tragedies
that occurred during the 1900's.
To tell people that those things should never happen
again. Reason for Speech In this speech some methods of propaganda and rhetoric are:
Situational Irony
Ethos Analyzation The Holocaust of course was propaganda at it's worst.
Little do we think, that that same propaganda would be used by a man once a victim to give the opposite effect that it once had gave.
Wiesel uses bandwagon to draw people away from mass genocide.

"It is so much easier to avoid such rude interruptions to our, our dreams, our hopes." Bandwagon "Gandhi, the Kennedy's, Martin Luther King, Sadat, and Rabin." as Elie quotes, were victims of the same hostility as were the Jewish victims during the holocaust. Transfer Ethos
In his speech Elie asks if we hear their pleas. The pleas of that young Jewish boy. Are our ethics actually up to par, is what he is indirectly asking. Analyzation by: Janie Ridgwell Elie Wiesel is a man who lived and endured all of the things that the Nazi's once brought upon the Jewish people.
Wiesel wrote a book that described a families journey through the painful time. That book is titled Night.
His intentions for giving this speech were to persuade humans into believing that everyone is different, we have to learn to live with it.
"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind." Mahatma Gandhi LOGOS "Indifferences can be tempting" Wiesel
This plays with a person's logic in what Elie is saying. Because is it really tempting? Or is it just methodical? Pathos
Elie says that "to be abandoned by God was worse than to be punished by Him."
Emotionally things could be worse for the Jews, but it's still pretty awful. mass killings, lack of food, brutal beatings How many hearts do we need to take, until we realize it's wrong?
Situational Irony:
we know their death is coming.. THEY DON'T Sources:

Brainyquotes.com Repetition The repetition in this comes in when Elie brings up the little Jewish boy in the mountains.
He repeats himself on that topic because he wants the audience and the reader to feel empathetic.
He wants them to feel like what happened is completely wrong and it should never happen anywhere else in the world at whatever expense.
