Mairs herself doesn’t fully comprehend why she decided on this title, but she believes that she wants others to see her as a “tough customer”. A person who “fates/gods/viruses have not been kind”, yet still can accept the brutal truth.

In front of the iron doors at Auschwitz, there is a description that work makes you free. The German propaganda proclaims that working at the camps is not confinement, but liberty. The Nazis initially gave the prisoners a choice between labor or death. Wiesel employs irony in this situation because the Jews did not have a real option. When the SS officials were told to liquidate the concentration camp in Buna, the Nazis sent the prisoners to the crematorium and did not give them food despite how much they worked.

The affection Douglass and his mother had for each other shows endearment, thus proving that whites are not the only ones with genuine feelings of attachment and love. Douglass mentions the first time he witnessed a brutal whipping of another slave, and it was his Aunt Hester. He depicts a very cruel image in the reader’s mind, using very descriptive details on the whipping of his aunt. He stated “Before he commenced to whipping Aunt Hester, he took her into the kitchen, and stripped her from the neck to the waist, leaving her neck, shoulders, and back entirely naked.” (pg 24) Douglass demonstrates yet again the non merciful consideration of the slave owners.
This makes him depressed, and therefore drinks to make himself feel better. This condition also makes him an incompetent, but when he is asked to sober up by an angry Katniss, he makes a deal with them, saying: “All right, I’ll make a deal with you.

The federal government saids “a woman who is a homemaker, who has never been a wage earner, is eligble for Social Security benefits only through the earnings of her deceased husband (Smith-Yackel 118). Bonnie Smith-Yackel I believe is shocked, and upset as she has realized, how hard her mother really did work. Martha Smith did
