Hatch 1 Alexandra Hatch Krista Rau Section 12 20 April 2013 While every society has its differences, there are a few universal similarities. In every society, people lookout for themselves, there are always those who rise above the others, there’s always people who are oblivious to the problems of others or just don’t care, and most everyone in each society looks out for those they care about. Because this is universal, we know that a lot of the things that human beings do is because it’s the natural thing to do. In the concentration camp Auschwitz, the commander, Rudolf Hoess, would observe many interactions between prisoners and guards. Hoess observed that there were three types of guards, the first malicious, the second indifferent and the third good-hearted. The indifferent guards didn’t care about the prisoners, they didn’t know about their problems or even care, to them the prisoners really weren’t humans. The indifferent guards just lived oblivious to the prisoners, even when it came time to work, the indifferent guards just let the Capos (the prisoners in charge of other prisoners) supervise the prisoners without the guards assistance. The Capos were prisoners who rose above the others, they were looking out for themselves, trying to make their own lives easier. By doing this, the Capos were also able to look out for those that they cared about, when it came time for the prisoners to work, the Capos would let those that they liked have a lazy day and the others had to do all the work. Others who were much like the Capos in the women’s camp were called “greens”. They were prisoners who were tough and promoted themselves to a higher status and made life harder for the rest of the
Hatch 2 prisoners. The “greens” ruled the women’s camp, by looking out for their own selves and nobody else. Another thing that Hoess witnessed in Auschwitz was that when people were first being brought into Auschwitz and being separated from their families, women would try to save their children at the risk of their own lives, families would try as hard as they could to stay together, even if it meant that they would probably be killed themselves. (Hoess) In the film, Young and Restless in China, people would look out for themselves in a few different ways. Women in China won’t consider a man for marriage unless he is well off
