The theme of this book is learning to love and care for the people around. How I came to this conclusion is by how Liesel acts towards Max, her foster parents, Rudy, and her neighbors. Liesel cares for people even if they weren't like her and she doesn't understand why there is hatred in this world. She wanted the world to be a happy place for everyone including Jews to be friends with one another. On page 426 in ‘The Book Thief’, when Rudy’s father went to war Liesel could relate to Rudy because “her mother.
She is recognized as a hero by Europe and America and other small countries, and one Allied journalist wrote about her, “ “What Jeanne d’Arc has been for centuries to France...that will Edith Cavell become to the future generations of Britons(www.history.com).” Edith Cavell saved people she barely knew, she died for them, she had an incredible influence in the hospital she worked at, and her compassion pushed her to never turn any wounded soldier away, despite being an Allied soldier or a German soldier. She is a hero who changed the futures of many soldiers as well as everyday
Needless to say, without the assistance of her parents, she may not have survived whatsoever. Moreover, Felicia and her family received shelter and food from other Jewish families or people willing to help in general, which was crucial to her survival. People were willing to be risking their lives to offer this assistance because everyone was in the same situation: They were all enduring this unnecessary suffering. Although Carmelly was extremely young in the duration of the tragic events unfolding, she managed to resist the dehumanization process by recognizing immediately that the structure of her previous life was gone. Furthermore, regardless of her age she was able to accept that the new structure of her life would be living minute to minute.
In the documentary, One Survivor Remembers, Gerda Weissmann recalls her miraculous survival of the Nazi concentration camps. Throughout her survival, Gerda Weissman shows personality traits of courage, perseverance, and compassion. When Gerda Weissmann was fifteen years old Germany seized control over Poland and all Jewish Poles were confined to small living quarters of their houses. Gerda Weissmann’s ability to keep calm and go on living in that situation showed true bravery because a girl her age would surely panic and develop a negative personality. Gerda Weissmann is possibly most courageous when she separated from her family and has to go to Dulag transit camp, while the rest of her family is sent to Auschwitz.
Miep Gies, Jackie Robinson and ,Harriet Tubman help change society in different ways but they were all the same because they all made a difference and helped stop prejudice. Although Miep Gies,Jackie Robinson, and Harriet Tubman had many different experiences, when the time came, they all acted very heroically In contrast “Woman who helped Anne Frank died at 100” , Miep gies acted heroically because she helped Anne Frank's family escape even though she knew the trouble she would get in. She helped save a family from the holocaust (by Teri Schultz, National Public Radio 2010). She hid Anne Frank family by hiding them in Trading Company office in Amsterdam. She saved Anne frank's
In the novel, a girl named Hannah (Chaya) shows us to not take for granted what the survivors of the Holocaust lost. In the book, Hannah is transported back in to time to WW2. Her “aunt” Gitl, was a very strong woman who took after Hannah. During this time the war was at its highest, and Gitl was talking about the Jews situation in all of this, “We Jews like to joke about death because it’s what you laugh at and make familiar no longer frightens you.”(p82). When Gitl says this she laughs through it to release the pain of knowing that she might not come back alive.
The first time I ever cried for a death. A death of a girl that didn’t exist in real life but in the lives of the countless children that had to deal with the traumatizing ordeal every single day. At that point I finally understood that growing up didn’t mean being old, getting a job and living your life with responsibilities. Growing up actually meant possessing and learning to cope with knowledge and death. It was finally understanding the real value of life, love, happiness, fear, understanding, commitment, and loss.
Overall the outcomes of women in resistance is very positive. Though getting to there goal had cost the lives of many women and the torture of thousands. Without their sacrifices and the help from some countries such as East Timor, Greece, or USA get to where they are today. East Timor had finally gained their independence after the massacre of thousands that was covered up, but brought to the world from the resistance. World powers saw what actions and took action in gaining their independence back as well as supporting them military.
In paragraph 2 it states ,"I have borne thirteen children, and seen them most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me." This helps prove my claim because she makes the audience feel heartbroken and sympathy for her because she lost her children that meant a lot to her. In paragraph 5 is also states ,"If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back, and get it right side up again!" This helps prove my claim because this brings woman empowerment to all whom this speech has touched emotionally. The appeals she used really connected to the audience in one or many ways.
I mean it’s hard being a teenager now but imagine it back then, and she saved lives! That pretty impressive to me. It’s not only that but as a young girl during the this time she had gone through some stuff. Managing to go through horrifying moments, she then in another occasion saved 6 more Jews from misery.
Tosia Altman had an immense role in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. She educated the youth and also led the underground part of the resistance. She faced death several times just so that she could help others. For example, she saved people from a burning fire, and spread significant messages that helped people to escape. Now forgotten, she deserves more recognition and her work should be known and taught along with the Holocaust.
