The Holocaust, Crimes, Heroes and Survivors | What Does It Take To Be A Survivor? Survivors in the Holocaust. | Scoop.it

The Holocaust...The Holocaust...The Holocaust...".

Paige Ruesch's insight:

The authors purpose in this article was to get his point across about the holocaust, and the rhetorical device used was repetition. The way the author keep repeating "...the holocaust..."(Holocaust, crimes, survivors"). This will get the readers attention and want to get them to read. Repetition is the way a word or phrase is repeated, or a attention getter, and "...The Holocaust..."("Holocaust, crimes, survivors"). This really make the passage more effective.

The Holocaust is Expanding

"Throughout the spring and summer of 1940, the German army expanded Hitler's empire in Europe, conquering Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France".

Paige Ruesch's insight:

The author's purpose in this article was to inform you about Hitler, and the rhetorical device was parallelism. The author uses parallelism to help you concentrate on the countries that Hitler’s army was conquering. "...Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France..."("The Holocaust"). These countries were now in an alliance with Hitler. The author's purpose is to remind the history of the holocaust. "Throughout the spring and summer of 1940..."(The Holocaust").

Personal Histories of The Holocaust

"Apparently I wanted to live very, very badly, because I did undescribable things. I ate things that no one would dream of being able to. Somehow I survived". -Charlene Schiff

Paige Ruesch's insight:

Schiff's purpose is to help the audience understand what she was thinking through the Holocaust, and the rhetorical device used in the article was testimonial and pathos. Schiff’s purpose was strongly worded in the part where she says, "Somehow I survived"("Personal Histories"). Schiff says the way everything was going she survived with all the hard encounters. The rhetorical device, pathos, stood out due to how she analyzed her story. Testimonial was also used to try and get you to feel what she lived like through the time period. "Apparently I wanted to live very, very badly, because I did indescribable things"("Personal Histories"). Schiff was living a terrible life and had to fight her way through the Holocaust.

Holocaust Facts

"Nazi leader Adolf Hitler voiced his plans for the Holocaust as early as 1922".

Paige Ruesch's insight:

The rhetorical device used in this website was analogy; and the author’s purpose towards this topic was to help explain how Hitler proceeded. Hitler, the leader of the Nazi's, constructed plans for the Holocaust, therefore, "...Adolf Hitler voiced his plans for the Holocaust as early as 1922"('Holocaust Facts'). The analogy was comparing Hitler's plans and when they were coming into effect. The author’s purpose towards this topic was referring to him as the "leader", and when you think of a leader you think of someone you need to follow and do what they do.

"(the people of the holocaust) were displaced, persecuted, or discriminated against due to the racial, religious, ethnic, social, and political policies of the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945".

Paige Ruesch's insight:

The rhetorical device used in this article was parallelism, and the author's purpose is to help the audience understand the inconvenience that the Jewish received from the Nazi’s. The author uses strong connotation to help get his point across. "...due to the racial, religious, ethnic, social, and political policies of the Nazis..."("Holocaust Survivors"). The author uses parallelism to describe what the Jewish were going through, and why they were treated this way just because of the little rules and beliefs. The strong connotation words, such as, "…displaced, persecuted, or discriminated against..."("Holocaust Survivors"), show how the author's ambition affects the article.
