There were a couple primary-source letters that were talked about in this film. One of them was a letter from a non-Jewish woman to her mother-in-law talking about Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass. In the beginning of the letter, the women feels pity with the Jews but towards the end her ton changes and she even states that from all the belongings thrown the Jewish individuals apartments she realized just how much the Jews possessed that what they possessed were things that non-Jews didn’t have or didn’t have enough of. Another letter that was shared is from a victim of the Holocaust and paints a different picture than the one from the non-Jewish woman. This letter was thrown from a train by Dr. Otto Simmons at the end of August 1942 and said; “My dears, we are on our way to Poland, nothing has helped, there are 50 of us in one car.
I had met her in the 4th grade because we were in the same class. At first, I was not a fan of her. We fought constantly and disagreed on everything, but soon I would find out that she would be my best friend. At this time in Winter break I had started to notice some things in my household and so did Emma. My parents were fighting all the time.
Her sister Margot had died a few days before. Anne was one of 1 million Jewish children who died in the Holocaust. I always wondered why the word "Holocaust" was used in relation to Nazi concentration camps and found out that it is a Greek term used to describe the violent deaths of large groups of people or huge massacre. Anne Frank showed bravery and always stayed hopeful for her future. Many forgot how old Anne was because she provided our society with so much knowledge of her time spent in hiding.
At the start of her speech, Jill Bolte Taylor, critically displays pathos with the use of her brother's mental disorder. Standing in front of a crowd of fascinated people, she uses pathos to capture their compassion. At the start of her speech, she engages with the audience by saying, "I grew up to study the brain because I have a brother who has been diagnosed with a brain disorder, schizophrenia." (Taylor). This use of pathos was highly effective because she captures their attention making them feel sincere and sympathetic towards her.
Irene Fogel Weiss is a survivor of the holocaust. She says, “Thinking you were going to take a shower when in fact you were going to the gas chambers - that was the ultimate deceit.” Weiss was lucky in many ways. When her group was being distributed to either the gas chambers or slave labor, she was mistaken as an older girls. She claims, “This was the first chance I had to survive.” Weiss experienced many horrific things, but luckily, she found her two aunts when she was sent to Auschwitz Birkenau. She was later sent on the death walk when Soviets came to liberate the camps.

“In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” This is a quote Miep Gies found in Anne’s diary. For people who haven’t been informed about Anne frank, she was born on [June 12, 1929]. She died at the age of 15 at a concentration camp. She was born in Frankfurt, Germany and moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands when she was four! When the Nazis gained control of Germany Anne lost her citizenship.
She was only able to expose herself to the knowledge delivered within her surroundings, because there was a lack of control and power over her life. Despite her potentials, her disability was the main component that determined the extent of goals she could actually achieve in reality. Invariably, she had to avoid and prevent any growth of relationships, and life experience with her weak heart tolling on the chances of her ability to take any custody and allow the presence of someone else in the picture. The description of Hulga’s situation is deplorable, as it is understood that her condition affects her capacity to take care of herself and others, “She had a weak heart. Joy had made it plain that if it had not been for this condition, she would be far from these red hills and good country people.
As her years of conducting the railroad culminates, Harriet starts her career of concocting superb speeches on top of her head. Not only was the audience moved, but they were also surprised of how inspiring her tone of voice is (207). In addition, as she tells her own synopses of her life, Harriet speaks her story with dramatic interpretation and excellent eloquence in a speech so well that the audience was thrilled upon scheduling another speech with Harriet. In one of her speeches, Harriet ferociously convinces a little boy to holler ‘Fire, fire’, which is a feat that only parents can normally do, let alone a stranger. (126) Also, Harriet persuaded, not always by cajoling, with a deep-tone husky voice and a gun in her hand, a despaired slave to continue on the journey instead of wavering on the decision to either turn back and risk punishment, or to go to freedom.
Throughout the story Mrs. Mallard has experienced many obstacles in just the time of an hour. After reading the story, readers can come to the conclusion that the theme is solemnly about a woman’s joy of gaining her independence. In Louise Mallards case, it is ripped away from her in a dramatic way. After analyzing the short story, one can note that without knowing the key symbols such as, her crying, staring out the window and her terrible heart troubles will make it complicated to interpret the theme of the

“Now I understand why those men were crying, I understand why this war needs to end, I understand everything now,” She wrote this passage while she was hospitalized. Us at the Chester County Times luckily got to speak to her mother. July 9th, 1883, Gettysburg Pennsylvania “ 20 years after Mary’s death, and we still don 't really have any idea why she would do this, why do you think Mary decided this?” I ask “ Mary was always someone to be the first to say hello to everyone while she was walking since she was little, she always wanted to see a change in the world.” “So do you think the only way she could see it change is by helping with making a
In the book, when the tiles were falling and letters were being discarded, it caused a communication gap. As Ella wrote, “You were right about the fallout from this absurd law. Not only does it cripple communication between islanders, it builds rock walls between hearts” (Dunn 22). In the book, not only did the letters get shorter, the lack of communication prohibited by their absurd laws made the people unpleasant. They were lonely and made many people rather leave than live like
