The man slams the door shut as the last body enters. Then, all I could hear were bloody screams, not the happy screams but the painful ones. I then knew what was really going on at this camp. I felt so much pain from what was happening to this innocent people. What did they do to deserve this unfair death?
According to Document C, “There comes a soldier, his bare feet are seen thro’ his worn out shoes, his legs nearly naked from the tattered remains of an only pair of stockings.” This shows that the soldiers barely have clothes. How can someone in the army continue to get stronger and fight more if they barely have clothes in the freezing temperatures of winter?

Because of all the debris, it was hard to even breathe in that area. “Dust clouds rose as high as 10,000, making it impossible for people to live there”. The dust clouds not only were super big, but took a long time to go by too. “Drought struck from 1934 until 1937 there was a drought, so there was no water for the families”.

However, each time Victor faces the monster he created he becomes very ill and passes out and then falls into a sickness for months. When he wakes from these illnesses his creation is gone and has “traveled somewhere else”, or Victor’s just hallucinating at certain times which is when the creation disappears. This theory makes sense due to the fact that in the book the creature travels to the mountains by foot very easily and travels around various places. Any human wouldn’t be able to travel through the mountains in those conditions with the minimal clothes and food that he had. According to “How Humans Deal With and Survive Extreme Cold” ,by Paul Ward, in the cold with no protection and with the condition Victor’s creation was already in his cells should’ve died due to the blood flow loss and should’ve resulted in at least severe frostbite.
The witches were tied up with cords and chains so they “couldn’t torment anyone while imprisoned”. Salem Jail was very close to the coast, and when it rained the jails flooded. Water would cover the floor, rising up to prisoner’s ankles. The jails were infested with rats and lice, which was very unhygienic, many people died of illnesses. Over a dozen people died in Salem Jail (Weiser), if the family wanted to give the relative a proper burial, they had to pay for the removal of the body.
In “The Lost Colony and Jamestown Droughts” Jamestown suffered its longest time of an unbroken period of drought.(57) August through May 1610 “(the “Starving Time”) killed 110 colonists.(Fausz, 63) The colonist also died because during the winter time, the was not a lot of food to feed themselves. The other reason colonists died because fish were only present during spring and early summer which is why they had no food during winter time. That is the reason colonists died by starvation.
Hostage By Merald Ayson Short Story The smell of death, lingering as if I have been here all my life. The bleak darkness screams into a harmony of dissonance, looking me in the eye as if to tease. In a puddle of wet and pungent materials and fluids I lay motionless; I do not remember how I even got there in the first place. My heart was rattled as I heard heavy footsteps; it was as if a giant was entering the room.
They slept almost every night in temperatures below thirty degrees, they also slept naked with no blankets. If your body gets too cold you can get hypothermia, which can lead to effected body parts getting amputated or even death. They said during these times they would collect corpses by the hundreds every day, now i see why. " Around the middle fo January, my right foor began to swell from the cold.
Nestled deep in the Smoky Mountains, is a small cabin. The family it once sheltered has long been gone. Once filled with life and hope, it now sits empty and bare. It stands as a monument to a time long gone, but soon it to will disappear. Disintegrating on the outside, rotting on the inside, and drowning in the ever thickening forest, it slowly crumbles away.
I was debilitated and startled, and the creeping realisation that we would never make it out of here, was slowly making it’s way to the front of our thoughts.. That night I had been sleeping in a burrow around three hours when I woke up feeling something gnawing my hip. I put my hand down and my fingers shut on a major rodent. It had snacked through my haversack, my tunic and creased kilt to get at my substance. With a cry of repulsiveness I tossed it from me. I’d thrown the rat to the side, when we once more; came under heavy artillery fire, I saw my friends being tossed around like ragdolls as their bodies were torn apart by shrapnel.
On the night of the evacuation there was a terrible storm. On the boat everyone was seasick, to go to the toilet was too dangerous in the rough conditions, people were sick where they were, the stench was terrible. When they arrived in Italy they were about 70 kilometres from the front line. They were then placed on a train, after travelling about 50 minutes the train stopped and they started going backwards. They ended up in a railway yard with nothing to eat or drink for two days, they were starving when they got on the boat and anything in their stomachs was evacuated due to sea sickness, they were barely alive, there were some deaths on the train.
