Medieval texts from various cultures, historical or literary, share the same thematic interest in kingship. This interest is exemplified by evidence found in historical documents and such literary works as the Anglo-Saxon Beowulf. In the times of the Anglo-Saxons, the quality of your king was the quality of your loyalty. A good king had knights that would be loyal to him. Beowulf 's job as a king was to "keep" the warriors and their treasure.

Hitler devised a long systematic plan that went on to wipe out 6 million European Jews, two-thirds of the Jewish population (Strahinich 7). Nations across the world saw this evil and banded together to fight against Germany and their Nazi party, with the goal to liberate the Holocaust prisoners and bring an end to Hitler’s cruel ways (Byers Overview 101). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors.
