On April 28, 1908 in Svitavy, Moravia (a province of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy) Oskar Schindler was born. Schindler might be a familiar name as he was a hero to many Jews and played a big role in saving 1,200 Jewish lives in the deportation to Auschwitz in World War 2. An opportunist businessman with a taste for the finer things in life, he seemed an unlikely candidate to become a wartime rescuer (United States Memorial Museum).
Oskar Schindler faced many conflicts in his life. The main conflict he faced was overcoming the Nazis and saving over one thousand Jewish People. Schindler, with out a job at the time, joined the Nazi Party and followed on the heels of the SS when the Germans invaded Poland. This is when Schindler took over two previously Jewish owned companies that dealt with the manufacture and sales of enamel kitchenware products and opened up his own enamel shop right outside of Krakow near the Jewish ghetto. There, he employed mostly Jewish workers, which saved them from being deported to labor camps. Though twice the Gestapo arrested him, he got released because of his many connections and with many bribes. Most
I do not believe Schindler made the right choice in assigning Silvio as the general manager of India. Silvio had little to no "real world" international experience. Silvio had much success in Sweden but there are several factors that limited his success in India. Silvio had high "warrior" and low "monk" attributes. Silvio was a task oriented individual. This management style is not well received in India. The General Manager needed to be a person that can change their behavior when dealing with different cultures. Before making their selection Schindler should have required Silvio to take a Global Mentality Test. This test would have told
The Italian Campaign put Allied troops in Europe. Lesser objectives of the invasion included a chance to capitalize on the collapse of Italian resistance; to immediately use Allied forces; to engage German forces that could be sent to Russia and northern France; to take control of airfields that could be used for bombing missions; and to gain control of the Mediterranean.
Himmelstoss –Himmelstoss was a postman who later became one of the corporals in the German army. He was tough and brutal especially to Paul and his friends who were soldiers in the army. Paul and his friends hated Himmelstoss when they first join the army but when Paul saw Himmelstoss hiding when he was supposed to be on the front lines he hated him even more for being a coward. To prove that he was not a coward Himmelstoss stayed on the front lines and helped the dead and injured. Himmelstoss may be considered a villain in the beginning but later is considered a hero in the end because of all his help.
Survival in Auschwitz written by Primo Levi is a first-hand description of the atrocities which took place in the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. The book provides an explicit depiction of camp life: the squalor, the insufficient food supply, the seemingly endless labour, cramped living space, and the barter-based economy which the prisoners lived. Levi through use of his simple yet powerful words outlined the motive behind Auschwitz, the tactical dehumanization and extermination of Jews. This paper will discuss experiences and reactions of Jews who labored in Auschwitz, and elaborate on the pre-Auschwitz experiences of Jews who were deported to Auschwitz and gassed to death on their arrival, which had not been
The “D-Day Dodgers” was the name given to a group of soldiers who were accused of avoiding the supposedly harsher battle in Normandy by fighting in Italy. The Italian Campaign of World War II further proved that Canadians were capable of fighting for themselves. The numerous victories after the battles in Italy can be attributed to the military tactics used and created during the campaign. The Italian Campaign derailed German focus from the Normandy and Soviet battles which aided other European Campaigns. By examining the contributions of the “D-Day Dodgers”, the accusation that those involved in the Italian Campaign were avoiding the war in the rest of Europe was not justified.
During the Holocaust, where Hitler killed thousands of Jews, Hitler had formed six concentration camps. One named Chelmno used gas to kill its victims in very large groups. Chelmno was located near
“Would you forgive the people that shot at you and your partner while you were on duty?”
Schindler was a rescuer of the jews because he was not a fan of how they were treated. When asked why he saved them he replied by saying “I knew the people who worked for me. When you know people, you have to behave towards them like human beings.” Unlike the nazis and Hitler, Oscar Schindler saw jews as normal human beings and did not use them and make them do manual labor just to survive and not be killed. He did make them work just so the nazis did not come in and just kill all of them or take them back to a concentration camp and abuse them. The condition Oscar Schindler had was when he had the jews working for him that he didn’t want them to make any of the bullets functional and allow them to be fired and kill
Peter Gay, a German Jew, escaped Nazi Germany just prior to the mass execution toward people of the Jewish faith that is now formally known as the Holocaust. Gay detailed this process in his memoir My German Question Growing up in Nazi Berlin. Like many Jews living as German constituents during the 1930’s, Gay’s family was hesitant to leave their home due to Hitler’s radical rise to power. The Fröhlich’s, Gay’s last name in German, decision to stay in Germany although they began to face immense persecution was a similar choice that millions of European Jews made during this time period, due to a constant denial that such an event like the holocaust would occur.
Although he is a Nazi, Oskar Schindler stood up against the Nazis because he was swayed by the brutality of the Nazis on Jews (although it is actually unknown why he really did it) and saved around 1,200 Jews from death from Nazi concentration camps by bribing Nazi officers to free Jews, employing Jews in his factories, and spending all of his money on anything that ensures his Jewish workers are fed and cared properly.
The site makes a point that no matter who you are, you can be a hero. The site does not only focus on Patch however, he is an example of how acts of heroism will be honored by many people, the site also focused on every person that participated in WW1. The overall goal of the website was to demonstrate that no matter where you come from or what you have been through you can be a hero, you can be the bigger person and make a change. In a war you have to work together and watch each other’s backs. You have to be able to trust the people are your side and be there for them as well. All you need to do is be brave and be able to take a stand. Everyone in life as the chance to be a hero, when you get that chance you should take it and show the people around you that it is possible to make a difference. It does not matter if you are a man or a women, it matters if you are brave and take the initiative. You can be the one to inspire others to do the same.
