Man’s inhumanity to man essay. The whole topic of this essay is the idea of mans inhumanity to man, how men are through time finding ways to destroy each other. Edwin Brook is the author of the poem five ways to kill a man, has written the poem with a very sarcastic and ironic view of death, this method is used to shock you. This poem is written like a recipe, it is a recipe for death and destruction and each verse you could say is an ingredient. The poem has five verses (ingredients) in which it explains about the different methods of killing and how they have developed. The first verse talks about the crucifixion, you can tell this by the way he had to walk up the hill being mocked with the cross (the plank of wood) and the people wearing sandals suggests that it is a long time ago. We look at the method of crucifixion, and say what a barbaric thing to do, maybe it was, but I think the way we use killing today is much more barbaric and ruthless. In the extract from the bible it talks about how Jesus not only suffered for 9 hours in a cross people laughing and spiting at him, but he had to face a lot more even before that. Jesus was being tried and the man Pilate could not see what Jesus had done wrong. But Pilate wanted nothing more to do with the matter and washed his hands, this was symbolising that he wanted nothing more to do with him and handed him straight over to the guards. This action gave the roman soldiers the power to do anything they wanted. The soldiers were bored they wanted some fun, and Jesus seemed the perfect person to have some fun with. At first they whipped him until he could hardly stand, then the stripped him of his clothes and gave him a scarlet robe, they also gave him a crown of platted thorns and stuck them into his head, they mocked him saying, ‘hail! King of the Jews’ and they kissed his robes. And they then crucified him. In doing these things they put Jesus through so much

The novel Night, the movie Schindler's List and the article A Tortured Legacy are all examples of this. Through the suffering of the Jews at the hands of the Germans, there is no clearer example of man's inhumanity to man. The holocaust was far more than…

    Man's inhumanity to man is everywhere. I firmly believe that people on this earth should be treated and respected equally. People are all unique. They come from different backgrounds, have different beliefs and ideas, but treating others in such an inhuman way, as the Jewish were in the concentration camps is cruel and should have never happened. I believe that the killing of several million people during the Holocaust could have been prevented by the means of more involvement from the other countries…

    Night During the holocaust the Jewish people were persecuted because of their religion. Why, because, they were different. Who’s to tell that this book tells a different story than any other book? In the book Night, Elie Wiesel’s command over language forms a new opinion on the dehumanization that occurred during the Holocaust. Nazi brutalities had been recorded and so had Jews being treated like animals, also the inhumane executions that took place in the camps. Just how did the Nazi party…
