How did the camp life change the prisoners as a person? a family? and relationships with other human beings?

camp life would change the prisoner to a very selfish person who only cared about themselves and how they were going to survive while making them to never think twice about their actions. most prisoners lost faith in God. If the prisoners had family in the beginning they would help one another out but in the end when it really came down to life or death they would not help one another or usually wished the other would die so they would only have to worry about themselves. the prisoners relations with other human being would be to use them or not even care about them because they were to worried about themselves.

What does this novel reveal about you as a human being?

This novel made me think about myself and how I can improve myself to become a better person. How I can make a difference in the world if I was a kinder person and to never become so selfish. To always treat others the way I would want to be treated and to help other and show that I care.


3 themes in the novel

  1. importance of remembering, so that way we don't forget bad things that happened in the past so they cant repeat themselves
  2. evil, the Jews had to take showers in gasoline and the gas chambers and the concentration camps were just plain evil
  3. Man's inhumanity to man, you shouldn't only think about yourself but think of others and treat people the way you would want to be treated

never forget
