Should Ellie Forgive the Nazi’s for what they had done? There are two kinds of forgiveness; there is forgiveness from god and forgiveness from human. Ellie should forgive the Nazi’s for what they did. When you do not forgive someone for what they have done you live with all that hate in your life. If Ellie would choose to not forgive them he would go though being angry and not enjoying the rest of his life that he has left. The reason why he should is so he does not live with the hate of the Nazi’s forever and is able to spend the rest of his life with happy thoughts and remembering the good things in life. If he doesn’t forgive no matter what good things or events come up he will still have a lot of anger and stress and he has already gone though enough of that in his life. It will not be easy for him to forgive but in order for the remaining part of his life to be happy and joyful without remembering what he had gone though and getting upset and mad about it throughout the rest of his life. Elie should forgive the Nazi’s so he can move on with the rest of his life.
