NIGHT No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. “Never shall I forget the little faces of the children, whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky. Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever.” People should never have to witness that kind of stuff that is clearly torture so that it violates the human rights. Humans deserve the right to not be tortured because it’s plainly not right to treat your fellow man like that (pg.3 Article 5).
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. ‘Where is God? Where is He?” someone behind me asked. For more than half an hour the child in the noose stayed there, struggling between life and death, dying in slow agony under our eyes. We had to look him full in the face. He was still alive when I passed in front of him. His tongue was still red, his eyes were not yet glazed.” This type treatment is cruel and inhuman because if he was that sick and that ill he should have been given the proper medical treatment, not left to die. That in its self is torture. That is how it violates human rights. In America people can get medical treatment even if you are poor and unable to pay for the care. You are given medical treatment regardless, that is why people deserve that right. (Article 5)

Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and wellbeing of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social service and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control. They were told to strip and keep only their belts. How are they supposed to have the right to a standard of living with food and clothing if they have no clothes, no food and no shelter. That is how it violates the declaration of human rights. (Article 25)
