The Titanic relates to our assigned readings in more ways than one, for example World War I and II and the great depression. All three affairs took place same time period, the 1900s. In the occasion of each, tragedy has struck causing people to suffer or die. They all have made an impact on the way that society views the world and causes us to look back and see it as a caution sign to not make the same mistakes. In all circumstances, the world has been given a wakeup call allowing changes to make for the better in the fear that there could possibly be a relapse.
In April 1999, Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel addresses the President, First Lady, several members of the government, and the American public with a speech titled “The Perils of Indifference.” He provides examples of indifference during World War II. Similarly, he reasons why indifference in the future has the potential to cause disaster. As the country turns its back on people, a multitude of victims suffer. Wiesel feels the responsibility to spread awareness as he personally felt the effects of indifference. His use of rhetorical appeals and his ability to evoke emotion in other people and persuade them to change their perspective or actions are what cause his speech to be powerful.
Thus, the story Burnt Shadows(2009) shares the concept with the reader that past events haunt the memories of individuals in order to shape their new identities at new places as the scars of bird shaped burns on Hiroko’s back always haunt her memories in future.

She declares helplessly about the territorial events of Nagasaki, September 11,2001, and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, The main plot of the novel is driven by alliances between characters as well as misinterpretations and accidents of history.
With the open-door policy, Canada will prevent history from repeating itself negatively, and Canadians will finally treat refugees as equals to themselves. It is essential that Canada starts to recognize that the worth of these refugee lives is not inferior to the worth of anyone else’s lives. The mindset that generates the response of society to the deaths of many compared to the deaths of few needs to be broken. And as a result, Canada will treat refugees as they treat Canadians. As the evidence shows, history is already starting to repeat itself, shown by the similarities between Hitler before World War II and Donald Trump now, and Canada has to stop this happening before it is too late.
People remember the Holocaust in different ways. They may remember specific things like concentration camps or Adolf Hitler. I remember the impact it made on the world and the millions of people it had affected. People like you, Israel Arbeiter were born out of the Holocaust.

Barton describes identity crisis resulting in identity change as not a terminal crisis but a point of growth for the individuals affected by the disaster. The change in identity is a process of dynamic transformation.Dyne extends this concept and describes the different levels at which this change in identity takes place among the victims of the disaster. Initially at the time of the disaster, the victims respond instantly to the sights and sounds of the event.
