Throughout history many races have been treated like inferiors by others such as the Irish salves that first came over to the Americas and the Chinese when the Mongolians took over. But the most well-known was the civil rights movement. If a person was black during this time, there was a chance that you could get beat up or damage to your belongings like such that happened to Josephine Backer. Baker describes a traumatic experience as a child, Josephine conveys, “When I was child and they burned me out of my home, I was frightened, and I ran away” (Baker 10). She was just a kid with a different skin color.
Her stories give a look into the life of some women actually go through. In Kate Chopin’s “Desiree’s Baby,” she uses several different themes including race and racism, love, and identity: foreshadowing, irony, flashbacks, and local color to show her readers that love can easily be used as a object and not real love. Kate Chopin shows the reader the theme of identity in “Desiree’s Baby”. In “Desiree’s Baby” Kate Chopin states, “Madame Valmonde abandoned every speculation but the one that Desiree had been sent to her by a beneficent Providence to be the child of her affection, seeing that she was without child of the flesh. For the girl grew to be beautiful and gentle, affectionate and sincere, - the idol of Valmonde” (Chopin 1).

There were many hardships they had to face. Most were either taken to concentration camps- or they were forced to go into hiding. In the book, “Number the stars,” Annemarie 's best friend, Ellen, and her family were forced to split up and go into hiding. Lois Lowry writes, “”If anyone should come, even soldiers, you two will be sisters.”” During that time, Ellen had a new identity as Annemarie 's sister, Lise- which wasn’t easy. One article states, “For Jews to pass as “Aryans,” it was essential to have false identity papers, which were often gained through contacts with the anti-Nazi resistance.” Having false identity papers was very hard to accomplish.
One of those kind of people were the Nazis. They want to eliminate all the people that weren’t “pure” or nationalist. This is what causes the World War II. At that time, there was a Jewish girl, called Anne Frank, that wrote a diary of all the things that were happening in that time to her and her family. In this book report, I will explain a summary of the diary, the symbols, the point of view, the climax, the theme, the genre, and my opinion.
History of Anti-Semitism can be summed up in these words of Raul Hilberg, “From the earliest days, from the fourth century, the sixth century, the missionaries of Christianity had said in effect to the Jews: ‘You may not live among us as Jews.’ The secular rulers who followed them from the late Middle Ages then decided: ‘You may not live among us,’ and the Nazis finally decreed: ‘You may not live.’” 2.2.1.

The Catholic missionaries introduced racial discrimination in Rwanda through education, social, and political life of the Rwandans. Prior the European missionaries contributed in forming the racial groups in Rwanda. In the colonial era, under German and then Belgian rule, Roman Catholic missionaries, inspired by the openly racist theories of 19th century Europe, invented a destructive ideology of ethnic cleavage and racial ranking that attributed superior qualities to the country's Tutsi minority, since the missionaries ran the colonial-era schools, these destructive values were thoroughly transmitted to several
