The people had already put aside their emotions for others, and began to give up all hope for a better life, and then the public executions made many give up their religious beliefs and hope for a nice afterlife. Whenever the gallows first showed up, and the first hanging of a boy took place, Elie thought, “this boy, leaning up against the gallows, deeply upset me”(Wiesel, 62). The sense of justice and that the good were rewarded and the bad were punished began to fade. The Jews can see that the judges in the camps can do as they please and choose who lives and dies, and that the sentences are not always fair. The crematorium did not involve them looking death in the face, but with the gallows they were dehumanized because they could not look away from the facts that life is not fair and just, and that their beliefs should be doubted.

In John Gardner’s novel Grendel the tale is portrayed from Grendel’s point of view, a villain who wreaks havoc on Hrothgar’s lands and leaves his citizens in fear. This affects the way we construe the theme of isolation in the novel which makes Grendel appear increasingly more innocent than the readers expect, and he is also victimized by the citizens, which causes him to be a recluse in society. Multiple times, Grendel attempts to conversate with the people, but he has been secluded for so many years that nobody can comprehend his words “Talking, talking, spinning a spell, pale skin of words that closes me in like a coffin. Not in a language that anyone any longer understands- Degenerate mutter of noises I send out before me wherever
Grendel by John Gardner has captured the attention of all who have read it and expresses the eventual loss of Grendel’s innocence. Grendel is depicted as a mass murderer in the original Anglo-Saxon epic poem and under normal circumstances one would not second guess that Grendel’s death was well deserved. However, opinions may change when one discovers that the monster is unaware of morals or has dealt with issues that corrupt his innocence. Grendel grew up lonely and his childhood was rather negative, ultimately changing his views of the world. In Chapter two Grendel wondered all the way to the human world where he ended up getting stuck in a tree.

Christians devoted themselves to the church, giving up every aspect of their life for God. People converted to Christianity because of the dark times; a religion made them feel safe in hopes of getting to a better place to escape their hard lives (Doc 10). During the medieval period, an epidemic called the Bubonic Plague killed one-third of Europe's population. The people were so unsanitary that is spread easily, but they blamed it on the Jews alleged revenge plans against them (Doc 6). Conditions in Europe during the 800’s were full of fear and unceasing terror.
(“Poor Grendel’s had an accident,” I whisper. “ So may you all) (Gardner 174) Was the last words Grendel had to say in his last moments of life to the people watching him die. I believe that Grendel said this in the way of a curse to the people. Since Grendel meets the people at the beginning of the story after his bull attack, he believed that everyone was nice but after being with them for a short period of time he realizes that humans are evil. For example, in the book it states, “You’re all crazy,” I tried to yell, but it came out a moan.
The Black Death was a disease that had a catastrophic impact on Europe. Reaching Europe in 1347, the plague killed an estimation of one-third of the population in the first wave. Each document varies with its reasons for the cause of the plague and how to deal with it.

Ambulances, garbage disposal units and fire trucks were non-existent privileges to that city. In the mid 1960s the city planners of Nova Scotia made a decision to relocate the inhabitants of Africville and have them spread across Halifax. City officials claimed that the relocation would help the racial integration issue; the Africvillians viewed the relocation as an act
They believed that the plague was the result of God’s wrath. To appease Him, citizens reacted by beating and killing heretics, which resulted in the deaths of thousands of Jewish people. Others fled the cities and towns to live in the country. Doctors refused to see patients, priests refused to administer last rights, and relatives abandoned dying family members. When people spread, so did the disease.

It wasn’t long before a paralyzing fear took hold of the city. Families stopped visiting each other with the likelihood of getting sick, doctors wouldn’t take house calls or treat victims of the plague, and priests would go to visit the sick and refused to administer this last rights. There was no rational explanation for the sudden appearance and rapid death rates, so many came to believe that it was a divine punishment sent down by God. In fact, the late 14th century English cleric, William Langland, wrote “God is deaf nowadays and will not hear us. And for our guilt he grinds good men to dust,” in his epic poem “Piers Plowman.” Despite all this dread and turmoil that racked the entire continent, the plague eventually died down and was preceded by the Renaissance which gave life and vitality back to the people of
