She wants what she did not have: big house, better neighborhood, and all the riches that she can buy. However, her father tells her to not think like that because that is not the reason that makes her, her, but instead it is her background and her family. This was something that I found quite fascinating because this was how I perceived my life when I was in high school. Sophia’s perseverance and dedication to moving forward is impeccable. “I wish we lived on the other side of town.” (Canales, 2005, p.35) I also wanted the better life.
At night, we slept almost naked and the temperature was thirty below. We were collecting corpses by the budreds every day"(Wiesel 70). Many things can contribute to your health being good or bad. People in the concentration camps didnt get any water which lead to dyhydration and hydration is deadly. They slept almost every night in temperatures below thirty degrees, they also slept naked with no blankets.
Before anyone thought about fighting the British for what they believed to be right, Concord was just a common town with average people trying to make a living. But in the time right before the war started, Concord was a very different place. No one wanted to fire the first shot, but they were preparing if it did happen. Gross tells us how they were some tense weeks, and William Emerson even said that it was a time of “Dread suspense.” The homes of the people of Concord lay
During the Holocaust, many of the Jews have noticed that they have changed over time. As much as Jew’s wanted to speak for themselves, or even save others, this wasn’t possible due to their fear of winning them causing silence. In the Elie Wiesel’s memoir, Night, shows how Wiesel’s experience was during this harsh time in his life as a teenager. During this experience, Wiesel discovers how others, also including him, decided to remain silent as a result of their fear, causing some choices to be avoided and not made. To sum up, Wiesel’s experience portrays that fear always wins and causes others to be silent.
Before when i would see someone on the street asking for money I wouldn 't give them any, only because I felt they got themselves in that situation they deserve to be where they are. Now that i see when people are in trouble it 's not always because they chose to be. This compares to the Holocaust in such a way that they did not chose to be in these concentration camps, they did not chose to be starved, or worked to death. They were forced to, they were miserable knowing in their minds that death can take its next victims any
The Jews would not get fed good and did not get many clothes. As they arrived at camp they got there clothes taken and then received the striped pajamas. The shoes were supplied and they were wooden clogs, but the catch was no socks were provided. Because no socks were worn their feet would get blisters and sore all the time. The striped pajamas got washed only every six weeks usually and you worked and slept in the same clothes so they got very dirty.
I did not report so that means no one knew where I was at, even though I was safe and in my room, no one knew where I was and no one knew if I was safe or not. Luckily that I was safe and that my phone just messed up and did not wake me up, but that is not always the case. In the military we depend on each other to be on time and do our part to complete the mission each day. I have been tasked out to be a soldier 's driver for his pre operation and surgery, if I was late waking up then I could have possibly made him late to his pre operation appointment and then that could have meant he would have missed out on his surgery, or worse he would
Survivor of the Holocaust Helga Weiss claims, “Her 10 days at Auschwitz were worse than the three years at Terezín [a ghetto they were forced to live in. ]” (John Przyby). The average day began at 4am for the Jews. After waking up, Jews had to make their bed perfectly. The blankets were cheap and small, the beds were made of straw and as a result, a perfect bed was not tangible.
Finally, I had to know when to say NO. I personally did not face that problem a lot because I do not drink alcohol and I honestly do not like to party. But there were points where I was tempted to do something, but I know I could, just because of the fact that I got in trouble with alcohol and my parents were to find out they would kill me. So now that I think about it all the times I would say NO. I am not here to party I am here to receive a better future, a future my parents did not have the chance to take and to play soccer those are the only things I should be focused
One push factor for why they moved was from the lack of security and lack of safety. When my parents had me, they were prejudice and thought that New Kensington wasn’t a very safe place for me to live in. There were shootings and break-ins. My parents didn’t want me to grow up in a bad environment. A pull factor when they moved was because the area was safer.
