There was blood everywhere. The ringing of bombs being dropped. The banging sound of gunshots. I’m here in bed trying to get to sleep. But I can’t. The thought of jews getting killed and the thought of me being killed is too much. I live in Germany because we don’t have the money to get out. I spend hours a day sitting in bed. It is December the 3rd of 1939 and just a few months ago war was declared. Ever since that day it has been living hell. We can’t go out in the world without being captured. The Germans are killing us jews because they think it's our fault that they lost WWI. It’s hard. We hide. Jane is who lets hide in her house. She never told us her last name. I can’t sleep. But I must sleep. Big things can happen any day. I cry myself …show more content…
Then he ran. I almost screamed but I didn’t because I was scared of getting killed. He ran right into the electric fence and he died in front of me. They just drag his body away. “You will do whatever we tell you to do.” they say in English. I was scared. They put me to work right away and I was slow at first. They beat me up. When they put me back to work I was soor. I had to work fast so I didn’t get beaten. I was wondering if I was going to get food. But I missed breakfast. I was working and when I finished they made me do more. Then was lunch break. I thought I would get food. But I didn’t. I watched many people get beaten up. “Ooh” they would grunt. I always felt bad. Hours had passed. Dinner time. They feed us a soup of some sort. It is disgusting. More people get beaten up. Including me. I’m in so much pain. They force us to sing. We have to go to bed. They make us exercise until we faint. Then someone fainted and hit their heads. There dead. We now have to sleep 5 to a bed. We can’t leave. The beds hurt to sleep on. We sleep for 4 hours. I wake up for my first full day at camp. Breakfast is just as bad as dinner. All we got is bread and coffee. The same stuff repeats and new prisoners come every …show more content…

I have blisters on every part of my body. I have gotten used to the constant hunger. Years have started to go bye and im lucky im alive. I have been broken on the inside and the outside. I show no emotion. I lost track of what day it was years ago. I lost track of how many people died the first day.

After 11 weeks of working in the lavines I am transferred to work in the infirmary. I attend to the sick patients and try to cure them with the little resources we have.

I’ve seen every injury you could possibly imagine from the common killer, Typhus, to internal mutilation from the experiments.

If we ever hope to come together and promote equality as a society, how must we do so if we suppress the needs of those with suppressed rights? To amend the issues that we have created, there must be stricter regulations around solitary confinement as it is a cause of unnecessary suicides, robs citizens of their basic rights, and brings down our intersectionality as a collective society here in Canada. Lately, the number of solitary confinement prompted suicides have skyrocketed, and have been on a steep incline for nine years, with no plans for amendment. A study at Cambridge University has determined that 63% of suicides in federal prisons take place while the inmate is in solitary confinement.

Marione Ingram’s ‘Operation Gomorrah’, relives an adult Jewish Hamburg looking back at their key childhood memories and constructs this survivalist identity through her use of textual form, figurative language, idiom/register and tone in her piece.
My bereavement resulted in melancholy, bottles of vodka and dozens of painkillers. I started isolating myself from people because I felt so cold. I pushed everyone else away for they were not my mother. It would be astounding if death could be reversed.

Today was the first day I decided to do the Poverty walk. I did consider what the rules that were required for the Poverty walk like limiting my spending, transportation and etc. I did my daily routine for the morning, woke up, got dressed and ate a bagel for breakfast with no butter or cream cheese or no coffee like I normally would because I wouldn’t eat all that extra stuff if I was living in poverty. I did have to use transportation that day because I live off campus and had to work both jobs that day, so I would say I used $ 3.75 including the money I would spend on food. After work I usually go on campus and go to our dining hall for lunch and meet up with a group of friends, but I decided not to go around my normal time which is around
