In the same biography, Adams states that Conan’s earliest memory was of “him huddling by the fire for warmth and listening as his mother told him a story while tending to his baby sister Connie”(1999). With these influences, Conan grew up loving to tell stories and creating his own, as Adams explains how he “wrote his first book when he was six” that was “an adventure story”(1999). Conan’s writing skills took off when he was twelve and sent to Stonyhurst. Adams’ biography states that in this new school, Conan “began making money by writing verses that mocked the harsher teachers” and made up stories when he learned history and he “took historical events and changed them to make them his own”(1999). However despite his clear skill in writing, his mother insisted he become a doctor, so he went to the University of Edinburgh’s medical school once he graduated Stonyhurst.
This work suited Ende, and when he noticed, he had written his first novel, Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver, which was awarded the German Prize for Children’s Fiction. This was the beginning of his career as an author, and he went on to publish many novels like Jim Button and the Wild, Momo, and The Neverending Story in 1979.

Researching Ayers’ life, Lopez talked to people who knew him and learned that he was once a classical bass student at Juilliard, but left school due to his illness. Writing a column about Nathaniel in the paper, he soon heard back from Al Rich, the CEO of Pearl River Piano Group America, who was interested in Ayers’ story and sent over some model instruments to replace Nathaniel’s old, worn violin. Steve convinced Nathaniel to store them at a local shelter and play there, so he’d have somewhere safer to be than the
Matthias Grünewald was a necessary part of the Renaissance, as he helped to spread many ideas about art and culture such as Systems of Faith, Humanism, and Mannerism to the Northern half of Europe. He mostly painted religious and Biblical scenes, but incorporated certain elements of the Northern Renaissance into his work. He uses lots of symbolism in his artwork and challenged the standards of artwork in his time. Matthias Grunewald was a pivotal piece of the Northern Renaissance as he helped to spread the cultural changes of the Renaissance to Northern Europe. Because of this, he is considered “one of the greatest German painters of his age.” Along with spreading culture, he also created artwork that challenged that of the Renaissance, therefore furthering the cultural development of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
Hitlers father had preferred him to get into business. Since then, Hitler had loved his new nationality of being a German which is foreshadowing Hitlers later job as dictator and ruler of the Nazis. In Hitlers adult years, his father had died which allowed Hitler to gain his strong feelings for painting and artistry again. Hitler even made the attempt to go to an art school but was rejected twice. Since Hitler dumped so much money into artistry, he became broke and thought of nothing better to do than join the army during WWI.
America in the early 20th century is a bizarre past to explore. While geographically similar to the modern day, the economy reached unprecedented heights, wars were taking to directly expand American territory, modern amenities like electric washing machines were being invented, and eugenics was rapidly expanding as a legitimate field of science. Perhaps most surprisingly, a variety of social programs of the 1930s-40’s of America and Germany mirrored each other or were otherwise directly inspired, with German scholars going as far as thanking Americans for providing the framework for further expansion of eugenics policy. However, in spite of inspired eugenics programs and forced imprisonment based on race, the American response to the holocaust
