When I picked this person I asked myself two essential questions, Who is this person and why is she important to history ? I believe Hermine Santrouschitz aka Miep Gies is important to history because she helped hide the Franks and other families . I mean if you think about it without her we wouldn’t have read about “The Diary of Anne Frank” because it wouldn’t have existed . Meaning if she wouldn’t have hid the Franks Anne and her family would have just been sent straight to a concentration camp right away and they all would have probably died right when they got there . So the reason is she is important in history is because she helped others in need and Anne’s diary which showed people tolerance and would have never existed and their story would have never been told but it was all thanks to Hermine Santrouschitz or Miep Gies .
She untangled the two-hundred-year-old judicial records from the Archives of the Bastille. She was fascinated by the lack of portrayal provided by the lives of the poor in pre-Revolutionary France, especially women. She was somehow seduced by the old manuscripts and also uncovered hidden secrets of the past. She asserts, the goal is not to make earth shaking discoveries, but to learn that for an alert historian, the archives can provide “a vantage point from which she can bring to light new forms of knowledge.” The task of research is therefore more than a neutral demand for “access” or “information.” "... the archive is like a forest without clearings, but by inhabiting it for a long time, your eyes become accustomed to the dark, and you can make out the outlines of the trees." (p. 69).
However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her. Instead, she “went out very little” (Faulkner 53). Because Emily made the choice to stay hidden from the townspeople even though her father’s presence was long gone, she was creating an antagonist upon herself. According to Ray B. West, Jr., “when as in A Rose For Emily, the world depicted is a confusion between the past and the present, the atmosphere is one of distortion-of unreality” (par.3).
Karl Abraham, after therapy sessions with her, concluded that her unresolved feelings for her father were the cause of her disturbances. She turned away from psychoanalysis towards Adler’s inferiority theory in order to explain her behavior. She believed that her conscious effort at intellectual brilliance was a sort of
In the world today, morality is not black and white anymore, it has developed into a gray area in which can scarcely be defined. The dictionary definition of morality is stated as "the quality of being in accord with standards of right or good conduct." Be that as it may, everyone has a contrasting opinion or view of right and wrong. This disagreement of opinion on what is moral causes controversy, such as the topic of abortion. Since abortion is simply put as the killing of an unborn child, why are women that kill their children convicted as murders when women who abort their children are not convicted as murderers?
Boundaries between Reality and Fiction are often exposed and highlighted through the use of various narrative techniques, thereby making it a fundamental element in both texts. The narrator of Slaughterhouse Five seeks to reinvent his “recount” of the “destruction of Dresden”. As written in The French Lieutenant’s Woman, we “fictionalize” our past as “We are all in flight from reality” (Fowles 97). This is apparent in Slaughterhouse Five as the narrator makes it clear that his story has a testimonial function although he does not construct the narrative in its original chronological structure. Instead, the narrator uses a nonlinear chronological narrative structure that truly reflects the indelible and traumatic impact of war.
Frederick Douglass mentions so many other shocking stories in his autobiography. The movie Roots and the book, the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, contradict each other because of the slaves’ origins. They are similar in the way that all slaves were treated poorly. However, they have more differences including of the amount of education Kunta Kinte was taught compared to Frederick Douglass. While Roots and the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass have some similarities, the differences of origins and education are more notable because they show how
Her question indicates how she didn’t know how she could have acted differently when the church with 300 Jewish women had been bombed during the evacuation of the camp. However, understanding that people are judging her decisions that she believed to be correct, made her feel doubtful and uncertain. She then follows with the question, whether she was supposed to join the SS. The questions which Hanna asked during the trial show that many who were part of Nazism were indoctrinated that they were committing right actions. In many cases the Nazi generation when causing deaths to hundreds of Jewish prisoners, didn’t feel guilty or ashamed throughout the novel since they could justify the receiving of orders and therefore blame the authority (superiors).

Despite the fact that the area of comparison between Russian serfdom and American slavery is understudied a number of investigations reveal the crucial similarities in the patterns in development of the two systems. In one of such studies Hine (378-384) demonstrates the parallels between serfdom in Russia and slavery in America, which include common features in the treatment and position of slaves and serves. This paper will apply this parallels as the comparison criteria for the two fiction texts that depict one type of oppression each: Harriet Beecher Stowe 's Uncle Tom 's Cabin and Aleksander Radishchev 's Journey From Petersburg to Moscow. Through the comparison of the two texts the essay will argue that serfdom can be regarded as a form of slavery because despite the difference in the scale and race, oppression that existed in Russia and America was identical. Radishchev 's book was first published in 1790.
