Susan B. Anthony and Elie Wiesel faced discrimination throughout their lives due to different circumstances, they both found ways to overcome them. Susan B. Anthony was arrested in 1872 for voting, which was illegal for a woman to do at the time. Elie Wiesel is a very prominent and successful Holocaust survivor. Both Wiesel and Anthony were inspirational figures who made huge impacts on the world; truly making a difference. In this essay I will compare and contrast the speeches given by both people. Anthony and Wiesel both share similar messages in their speeches, yet the language used to communicate these differ greatly mostly due to their experiences. The speeches by Elie Wiesel and Susan B Anthony contain many similarities as well as differences. Each speaker talks about injustice and indifference. Both Wiesel and Anthony were pioneers of their times. Each for different reasons. Anthony, the first women to cast a vote, illegally. And Wiesel, a survivor of the holocaust. Each chose to speak out against the injustice and communicate the message very differently. Elie Wiesel specifically talks about the indifference of doing nothing. He brings up the points that silence is signifying complicity.
