    “For evil to flourish,it only requires good men to do nothing” ~Elie Wiesel
    “For evil to live,it only wants good men to do nothing”
    He is trying to say no one should live for evil , but when people are good they get treated like they are nothing.
    I agree with him because no one should have to get treated with so much disrespect, we should get treated equally because we are all humans no matter if we are a different race or a different color.
    In the movie that I watched with Elie Wiesel, Elie and other jews were treated unfair and disrespect from the germans because they are a different race and because hittler hated the jews because of who they are and thats not right

    “For evil to flourish it only requires good men to do nothing”
    – Simon Wiesenthal

    Paraphrase-For evil to come it only takes good men to accomplish nothing.

    Interpret-To me the quote means that some good men are the ones who bring evil to accomplish nothing at all.

    Agree/Disagree-I agree with this quote because good men where used to do evil things.Like in the holocaust men were forced or wanted to work for hitler.They did what he said and killed or gave people orders.

    For things evilto flourish it only requires good men to do nothing
    – Simon Wiesenthal

    For things evil to stop it requires good people to do nothing….

    I think the people should not do anything or say anything so you will not be punished. Just do what the people tell you to do.

    I agree with the qoute because in the article Anatomy of the Halocaust they didnt say or do any thing to get punished by the nazies during the halocaust. If you dont complete what they tell you to do you will get punished by the gas chambers or by guns.

    The conection is the holocaust because germans were killing the gews so the other hermans were following the nazis also

    “For evil to flourish, it only requires good men to do nothing.”
    ~Elie Wiesel
    “If it only requires good men there not going to do nothing but for evil to succed.”
    This means that evil is upon the Jews because of WW1. When it says it requires good men to do nothing is talking about the Jews are not going to do anything or obey they will die.
    I agree with this quote because this is talking about the Jews that was blammed and the Nazis will make sure if the Jews follow the instructions or they will obey to be killed. Jews will be required good men because they are not going to do anything if so they will die but obey will make it worse.

    ‘for evil to florish it only requiers good men to do nothing’
    the quote means if good people stand by and dont try to help evil will grow strong and will be harder to remove.
    Iagree with the quote because when the germans watched hitler take and kill the jews .they became more powerful and took over germany

    “For evil to fourish, it requires good men to do nothing”

    Dont worry, the only thing that evil needs to give up is for good men/women to just stand there and do nothing

    I think it means if good men/women do nothing it will make the evil realize they are wrong and it will make them give up

    I agree and disagree,but i mostly disagree. I agree because, if the good men/women don’t do anything, the evil might realize they are wrong. I also disagree because if the good men/women just stand there and watch the evil things going on without doing anything and the evil don’t give up. The evil can take over unless the good men/women do something.
    In the Holocaust many good people stood there and acted like nothing was going on but then the evil killed thousands of Jews. the good people did not do anything until the end when the soldiers came and helped the Jews

    For evil to flourish it take good men to do nothing. When jack and his family was living in the ghetto the nazis kick them out. For example when jack grandfather was force to do something his so call friends did not stand up for him.Another example when jack family was bein kick out no one stand up for them.To conclude when you think you have friends you really don’t intil they stand up for you.
