Ms. Justina Oliva English Composition November 26, 2012 Destruction at its Greatest Decades before today’s modern period, the act of slavery through a primary ruler was dominant. When a human being undergoes slavery, he or she is defined, ruled, and owned by the power of one or few individuals. Not everyone who has experienced the act of slavery has been able to persist through the crucial punishment, increasing their chances of later losing their lives. Individuality gives freedom and personal purpose to one’s character, mentally and physically. The existence of slavery should not be prevalent, leaning more towards abolishment, because of the destruction it leaves upon those who survive it. Today, equality should be made a priority across the world and not just in specific countries. One of the most prominent forms of enslavement known today is the Holocaust. The term holocaust is defined as destruction, slaughter, or murder in mass amounts. (The American Heritage) Human acts related to any form of a holocaust commonly produce widespread life losses, usually by fire or in genocidal cases, firearms.

(U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum) Concentration camps are characterized as a place for individuals to undergo harsh conditions with very little resources, such as clean clothing, food, and water. The measures of events that took place in these camps were established off of illegal actions of imprisonment towards anyone who was captured from the Jewish community. Over the course of twelve years, Hitler and his Nazi government managed to persecute and murder nearly six million Jews; one-and-a-half million of them being children apart of the community.

    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.
