This source was written in 1542, and this speech was given to the people of the country of Spain. The Martolome De Las Casas, the lord Prince of Spains don Felipe gave this speech to the people. Giving this speech, the Prince shows how horrid the idea of the Christians killing and destroying the Indies. The Christians represent the English and the Indies are the Indians. The Christians invaded North America and stole the Indians’ gold, food, and killed a multitude of them: “The cause for which the Christians have slain and destroyed so many and such infinite numbers of souls, has been simply to get, as their ultimate end, the Indians’ gold of them, and to stuff themselves with riches in a very few days, and to raise themselves to high estates... owing to the insatiable greed and ambition that they have had, which has been greater than any the world has ever seen before” (2 Bartolome De Las Casas).
Ms Schacheter’s: “Jews, look! Look at the fire! Look at the flames!”() “Never shall I forget the small faces of the children whose bodies I was transformed into smoke under a silent sky.”(p. 34) “The student of Talmud had been consumed by the flames.” Fire is used as a symbol of death in the book “”Night”.

Today, you can find Dante’s tomb where a single burning oil lamp burns continuously, the oil a gift from the exiled poet’s guilt-ridden hometown of
Kateb Yacine’s Intelligence Powder is a play that looks at post-colonial Algeria and how France affected it as their oppressor. In July 1962 Algeria achieved independence after a bitter war lasting over seven years. Some 300,000 Algerians died to win their nation's freedom. The war was fought brutally on both sides, but the need for a violent independence struggle was deeply rooted in the violence French imperialism had imposed on Algeria for over a century (Birchall, n.d.). The hero of Intelligence Powder is a person arranged by Kateb called Puff of smoke, a philosopher who lays bare the hypocrisy but especially the idiocy of the Mufti, Cadi and Sultan (representatives of religious and political public authorities) and even ordinary citizens.
