In Auschwitz where thousands of Jews were slaughtered daily is the witness to the emptiness that remains when man abandons all morality. It is a sight of apocalyptic proportions: grotesque block chimneys point their sad fingers to the heavens, while all that remains of the majority of the wooden barracks are their ruined foundations. The agony of the past is still snagged on the hurtful barbed wires, and a dreadful gloom stagnates over the camp, its spores infiltrating the hearts of people in the 21st century. The misery is irresistible. Wiesel writes with a power aimed at never letting people forget all that had happened in the Holocaust.
Everybody has desires that constantly weigh over their heads, pushing them to be diligent in all their endeavors, but what would you do if you knew that one day you would no longer have the opportunity to fulfill these desires?

Fault and redemption. What do these two words really do in our lives? Do they give us another chance or are they just concepts that we want to follow? In the world we live in, one fault can often make or break something in our lives, but when granted with redemption, we don’t always take it as seriously as needed and soon our fault becomes someone else’s pride.

To get there, passing the three options is inevitable, Gatsby found them for sure along with his path. As did all our characters in this time of the roaring 20’s.

Topic: Did colonization civilized the colonizer? My heart bleeds like the blood that stream from the clashes of swords and matches triggered by hungry and power seeking colonizers. The sounds of guns that blasted the skull and brain of millions of people reecho in my dreams every night.
