With only one desire: to eat. I no longer thought of my father, or my mother… I would dream. But only about soup, an extra ration of soup” (Wiesel 113). Gregor’s parents become increasingly indifferent to him because of the change of him. “Earlier, when the door had been barred, they had all wanted to come in to him; now, when he had opened one door and when the others had obviously been opened during the day, no one came any more, and the keys were stuck in the locks on the outside” (Kafka 18).
A lot of Holocaust survivors are vegetarians or vegans because they were deprived of meat and any other food with nutritional value. They chose to live their post-holocaust life this way because of their experiences and the memories that they will always carry. The book Maus written by Art Spiegelman is about Art writing about Vladek's (his father's) experiences through the holocaust. Art emphasizes all of the hardships he went through and how the memories have affected him in the present. The theme the past can affect the present is represented through Vladek not hiring anyone to do work for him, Vladek always making Art finish his food, and Vladek's glass eye.
In fact, King Lear did not really think about the plight of homelessness. This is the first time that the "poor naked wretches" have been recognized in his kingdom because he has not done enough to solve the problem of displaced persons. The mercy of Lear is driven by good conscience to acknowledge that it was his duty to done something to help those when he had authority. Also, Even while Lear teeters on the brink of insanity, he feels pity for the Fool. When Fool exists, Lear says: Poor naked wretches, whereso 'er you are, That bide the pelting of this pitiless storm,
One particular Jewish man is weak and clearly suffering from hunger and exhaustion, and Hans rushes to him and gives him a piece of bread. It’s a small act, but it shows kindness. It lets the Jewish man know that not only does Hans not hate him for being Jewish, but he also pities him and wants to ease his suffering. Immediately after, one of the Nazi soldiers mercilessly whips Hans and the Jewish man. The act is cruel to begin with, but its cruelty is heightened by the fact that it comes in response to Hans’s kindness.
Everyone gets the same amount of food in the annex, and even though it is scarce, it appeases their stomachs. Except for Mr. Van Daan and his insatiable appetite. In the stage directions, Mr. Van Daan pilfers food: “Then [Mr. Van Daan] cautiously opens the safe, taking out a half-loaf of bread”(424). Mr. Van Daan's thievery of the food shows how insensitive of a person he is. Everyone else is just as hungry, but they have the morality to not steal and cozen their friends.
They are friends. It was good that Bruno was naive about the Holocaust because he would have never met Shmuel or gone exploring.

Junior had a dog, and he is a important friend for him, and he was sick. He was killed by Junior’s father because his family did not have money to find a vet. It caused him hate the poverty. Reardon was not that poor, for example, in the chapter “Dance Dance Dance” Roger drove Junior to home and gave him some food to eat, it shows Roger is not poor, he did not need to worry that much things that Junior worried. Roger helped Junior, and he did not laugh at Junior that he was poor, and because of the difference between their level of gap between rich and poor, he learned that sometimes he should trust other
He was thrown into the world looking odd, ugly, being eight feet tall and with the mind of a newborn. Being lonely, he tries to blend in with the society, only to be despised and rejected. I believe that the monster is not purely evil, and I also believe that this is the main message of this book: Evil is not born it is more rather cultivated by ignorance, indifference and isolation. As the story went on I noticed that the monster shows several signs of kindness and sensitivity. For example, he helps a group of poor men and saves a girl from drowning.
Now the only thing Jed had standing in his way was the money to ride the bus to the school and facing his father. He decided that he would be able to pay for the bus fee by selling some of his carvings and it just so happened that his town was opening a craft store for tourists to stop in and get some homemade goods. The day Jed decided to tell his father he was actually okay with him not working in the mines which really surprised Jed. That same day the mine collapsed and the last two men to come out were Jed's father and his friend Tommy's dad. Jed's father had actually gone back into the fallen mine to get miles.
Zora Neale Hurston’s writing is both a reflection of and a departure from the ideas of the Harlem Renaissance. The Jim Crow Laws were seen in this book, and as a part of the Harlem Renaissance, were made fun of. “Each and every white man think he know all de GOOD darkies already. He don’t need tuh know no mo’.(p. 172)” Tea Cake is forced into cleaning up the dead from a hurricane and was discussing the treatment from the white enforcers while also making fun of them.
I always heard his stories and how they treated him well and going to the school actually saved his life. There was not much food on the reserves and when bad winters came many people froze to death, so when he went to the school he got food, a warm place to live, and education which he wouldn 't have gotten otherwise and another language which helped him out later in life. I think educating students of residential schools is a good thing but the problem is we only ever learn one side of the story. We learn over and over again how horrible they were and all the children that died, We never hear stories from survivors who had a good experience or about the schools that treated the students good. So how I want to help with reconciliation is to make sure people know these schools were not all bad for everyone.
