Werner has never wanted to work in the mines because he doesn’t want to end up like his dad. During the age of 15 his opportunity to get out from working in the mines had come, he was given a task in which he had passed and was able to get in Schulpforta. There Werner excels in his physics and is chosen by his professor, Dr. Hauptmann, to help create a radio tracking device for the German army. At school, he meets his only two friends: Fredrick, his bunk buddy, Frank Volkheimer, who is known to be a “Giant”. Although Werner was given the opportunity to go to school, he drastically started to change.
During his early years, Hitler clashed frequently with his father, Alois. In his autobiography, Mein Kampf, Hitler mentions that his father had wanted him to follow his footsteps and take up the service in the bureaucracy while Hitler aspired to be a painter. Hitler would deliberately neglect the subjects that he was uninterested in while scoring well for the subjects that he had interest in. The stalemate with his father would go on till his father’s death in 1903. Following the death of his father, Hitler went on to Vienna and applied at the Academy of Fine Arts in 1907.
In the novel The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton the character Darrel Curtis is unquestionably influenced by his gang as it prevents him from being successful to becoming the father of the gang, and overall being someone to look up to.

The doctor that was trying to heal Klara was Jewish, but despite his race, Hitler was appreciative for the care that the doctor provided because he had not yet developed a detestation towards the Jews (Weinberg). Hitler was schooled as a young boy, but he did not finish his high school education because he moved to Vienna, Austria, when he was 18 and attempted to get into the arts academy (Weinberg). Instead he was rejected, and his rejection into the arts academy left him with ample time to ponder his political and racial views (Weinberg). It is in Vienna, where Hitler’s racist and anti-Semitic ideas began to formulate (Weinberg). In addition, Hitler studied German politician’s methods and ideas in his free time, and because of this studying, Hitler learned how to please the people, the democratic process, and he developed an abhorrence towards the Slavic people.
Four Perfect Pebbles is the memoir of Marion Blumenthal Lazan 's experience as a child during the Holocaust. When Hitler rose to power, this young Jewish family, Marion, her father Walter, her mother Ruth and her brother Albert were stuck in Nazi Germany despite trying to escape. No one expected Hitler to rise to power in the 1920s but as his political message of Germany economic recovery and anti-Semitism caught on, they became concerned.

In a span of 10 years, the Holocaust killed over 7 million people, that’s just as much as the population of Hong Kong. In the book Night, by Elie Wiesel, Wiesel shares his experience on how he survived the Holocaust and what he went through. How he dealt with the horrors and even to how he felt of his dad’s death and how he saw himself after it was all over. As he tried to publish it he was constantly turned down due to the fact of how horrid and truful it was. He still tried and tried until it was finally published.
The Holocaust was an immoral machination orchestrated by the Nazi’s to eliminate any person who did not meet their criteria of a human. Millions were interned in camps all around Europe. Each person who survived the Holocaust has a different story. Within Elie Wiesel’s Night (2006) and the movie “Life is Beautiful” (2000) two different perspectives on the Holocaust are presented to audiences both however deal with the analogous subjects faced by prisoners. Inside both works you can find the general mood of sadness.
Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 in Braunau am Inn, Austria to Alois Hitler and Klara Pölzl (Biography.com Staff). Hitler was the fourth child in his family of six children. His father served as a state customs official and pushed Adolf to become one as well (History.com Staff). Young Adolf felt rejected by his father from the start of his life because of Alois’ resentment in his son’s desire to be an artist. At an early age, Adolf tragically lost his younger brother Edmund, which devastated him.
He had gotten used to the thousands dying in the crematories, but this one still “overwhelmed him”(Wiesel 59), as he put it. The Kapo wanted to bandage his eyes, but the man refused. After a period of waiting, the executioner put the noose around the man’s neck. Before they pulled the chair from his feet, in a calm, strong voice he cried: “Long live Liberty! A curse upon Germany!
There were many who collaborated and murdered Jews, yet there were even more who kept silent and did nothing to stop this from happening. There were Nazis at the time who laughed at their victims, saying: If you try to tell people about this afterwards, no one will believe you! (Today, if you look on the internet, you will encounter hundreds of evil sites dedicated to anti-Semitism and denying that the Holocaust, a historical fact, took place.) So, the role of witnesses like Elie Wiesel is to fight the amoral indifference in this world, to remind us that he saw how the "cultured" Europeans degraded and murdered so many innocent individual human beings. He saw how others stood by and did nothing to combat the suffering of those who were persecuted.
Many people don’t know about the Holocaust or only know that it happened during the time of WW2. The Holocaust was the mass massacre 6 million of Jews and other minorities in Europe by the Nazi regime. Some people might not want their kids to be taught this in 8th grade because they believe that their children’s minds will be polluted by thoughts of killing and extended torture. Students in 8th grade should definitely be taught about the Holocaust because it is necessary to teach them to learn from history and never judge anyone by their race, and finally explain to them that being silent towards others suffering can lead to mass destruction over a period of time. Firstly, the students need to aware of and understand the magnitude of the massacre.
He gave him water, his rations, and carried him throughout the camp even while he wanted to lay down like the other old men from the camp. Elie knew that all those men would get burned and killed because they were of no use to the Germans anymore. In conclusion there are several accounts in the novel Night by Elie Weizel where his faith in religion is tested. When he is separated from his family at the arrival of Auschwitz, When he and another turn against their fathers from the traumatization of the camp itself, and when his father is dying near the end of

He was born in Austria in 1889 and died in 1945 (http://www.notablebiographies.com/He-Ho/Hitler-Adolf.html). He didn’t do well in school but he did really like art. He was very depressed when he didn’t get into the Academy of Fine Arts (http://www.notablebiographies.com/He-Ho/Hitler-Adolf.html). But he served in the German army in World War 1 and he got medals for his bravery (http://www.notablebiographies.com/He-Ho/Hitler-Adolf.html). He was very respected in Germany for his service.
After hearing what he did to those Jewish people in the building would have mind- blowing and extremely appealing to me. I would have either said “no” or just walked away. This is a big thing that happened after the Holocaust, the Jews were left with this horrible experience and lifetime of sorrow while some Nazi’s felt extreme bad for what they did. Some Nazi’s wanted to forgive the Jewish people for the heinous acts they committed, but the majority of the Jewish population would never forgive the Nazi’s. This is such a burdensome thing to come across and try to deal with because of the magnitude of the situation.
