Have you ever wondered what it's like being wrongfully accused of a dramatic crime? If you have, hearing Sarah Good's story might enlighten you. On March 1, 1692, three women were arrested on accounts of witchcraft in Salem. Around 200 men, women, and children were accused of witchcraft and killed in this horrific time. Sarah Good had a horrible reputation that lead to, in my opinion, a wrongful accusation of witchcraft.
The story Hansel and Gretel remind Misha about holocaust because of Janina. Hansel and Gretel is about a brother and sister on who was left out in the woods and runs into a house that is supposed to take out of their hunger because its decorated full with candy. Its like an sign of hope, but instead inside they meet an old women who wants to get rid of them. She tell them all kinds of torture that she wants to do to them, and tries to trick them into the oven. One of the children finally understands what she wants to do and tricks her into getting in instead and the witch dies. Misha gets upset about this and rips the book. Rather than the witch dying in this case Janina did and Misha did not consider her as a witch.
Throughout history there have been many instances where people were put in jail and even killed for no reason. Two examples of this would be The Salem Witch Trials and The Holocaust. These two events have their similarities and differences, but is ultimately the same situation.
What others think about you is all people seem to care about. So when your reputation is good and is on the line, you will do almost anything to protect that. Reputation is the main value that the characters in The Crucible are trying to protect.
The Devils Arithmetic is about a Jewish girl named Hannah. It starts off at the Passover dinner. Hannah doesn’t understand why she has to go to this, and why she can’t just eat Easter candy like her friend. Hannah is also confused at why her Grandpop Will is yelling at the T.V because of a program about the Holocaust. She remembers that when she was little she wrote a long number on her arm to match the one her Grandpop had. Her Grandpop picked her up and started yelling at her and shaking her. Hannah never fully forgave him for that. During that Passover Dinner she is asked to open the door to let the Prophet Elijah in. When she does this she is transported back in time, to Poland 1942. There she is known as Chaya Abramowitz. (Chaya is Hannah’s Jewish name. She was named after her Aunt Eva’s friend who died in the Holocaust. Chaya also means life.) She is living with her aunt Gilt and uncle Shmuel, because her parents died from a disease back in her home town. Chaya was also affected by this disease but survived. Hannah thinks this is a dream so when she says anything about where and when she’s from and how she got there it is blamed on the fever.
By the end of “A Raisin in the Sun” by Lorraine Hansberry, the Younger’s lives are beginning to improve. Compared to the state of the family at the opening of the play, most considered that play ends on a joyous moment. However; that is not so for the Younger family. The way the play ends is not a happy ending because the Younger family does not have the funds that they need, two people are further from their dreams, and they are moving into a neighborhood to could be dangerous for them. Although one may be excited that things appear to be better for the Younger’s, the reality is that things could possibly be worse for them.

"You must understand, sir, that a person is either with this court or he must be counted against it, there be no road between. This is a sharp time, now, a precise time-we live no longer in the dusky afternoon when evil mixed itself with good and befuddled the world. Now, by God's grace, the shining sun is up, and them that fear not light will surely praise it."
Who knew one seemingly innocent lie could cause 19 deaths and pit an entire town against itself? That’s exactly what happens in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. Authors often use similar plot devices, and their favorite one is having their characters face a test. In a small town called Salem in early America, something terrible is happening. A small group of teenage puritans broke several rules and lied a seemingly innocent lie. That lie turns into a series of hearings where the defendant has two terrible choices. They can either lie and confess to witchcraft that they didn't commit, or hang. That one lie leads to 19 deaths. In Arthur Miller's The Crucible, many characters made crucial decisions that led to the disaster
The Crucible is a play by Arthur Miller.
