Pathos Influence on The Perils of Indifference Elie Wiesel and his family were victims of Germany's wrath against the Jews in World War Two. Elie lived a lovely life until he, with his family and friends, were quickly transported to a Jewish ghetto when the war began. After they were segregated, the German leaders decided to move them yet again. They were deported to the German concentration camps where his little sister and parents fell causality to the war. Elie's time at the concentration camp was inhumane and miserable. The German soldiers treated Elie worse than they would their guns, which they threw to the ground without a second thought. Elie's experience with the concentration camp sparked his well known speech, The Perils of Indifference. In his speech he addressed the audience, American people, with immense displays of emotion through his words. Elie's use of such detailed emotion helped him prove his message of being proactive when thinking or acting with indifference. He talks to the nation in hope that they will understand that indifference is not a light-hearted topic, nor is it a just word. Indifference tugs at your heart strings and is a serious topic. Elie's use of Pathos in his speech helped him deliver the message of being passionate when helping someone and not allowing indifference to creep into your heart nor mind.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
