Most of the people in the ghettos would have to smuggle, trade, or buy food. These people couldn’t survive off of the food that was given because they would live on 180 grams of bread, 220 grams of sugar, 1 kg. of jam, etc. These people were so weak from starvation if they were too weak to work they would be executed. Even though people smuggled food into the ghetto some of them would still end up losing their lives.
1 million for 1 million people Aunt Bessie gave a million dollars should I spend it on myself or should I make this nation a better place than what it was. What will you put one million dollars?. During progressivism there was child labor, women 's suffrage, no food inspection as well as no care for the environment. And for me to make it right i would like to split my one million dollars into food inspection, 600k, child labor 300k, and women’s suffrage 100k to improve the situation and make the future great.
They throw pieces of bread into the train just to see people fighting each other: “‘Please, don’t throw any more coins!’ ‘Why not?’ said she. ‘I like to give charity’” (Wiesel 100).
The twelve districts in theory should view the Hunger Games as the necessary tool that keeps Panem from uprising and self-destruction, however, the reception of the Games in the really poor districts clearly shows that the Capitol cannot reform them to think so. Statistically, the poor districts are always the most likely to lose one year’s competition because they lack resources to train tributes and their children are starving. Therefore, the response to the Hunger Games in the poor districts who are on the brink of starvation is the most dramatic. Citizens of districts such as 11 and 12 can only view the Games as injustice because once a child is chosen at the Reaping he or she is evidently doomed to die. There are rare exceptions as the
All they had was rotten potatoes, beans, and bread to eat every day. So there were no favorable or enjoyable food for them to eat, in fact, it was just so disgusting for them to eat that sometimes they would throw it up. And just to make it worse, Mr Van Daan was caught stealing bread just for himself. Pretty selfish of him, considering that they had little food to make due with in the first place Before that crisis, the families had to divide the food or rations up evenly by 8 people. Think about that, they have barely any food, but still had to divide the food up by 8 people?
The school was so broke that when the head coach would go and wash jerseys he would have to go to a laundromat with a bag full of quarters. Another problem about the jerseys was that there were ripping and the coach couldn 't afford to buy new ones so he would have to use tape and other material to keep the jerseys together. When school would go and play Martin Luther King High most school don 't want to have a halftime they just want to continue to play so the they can leave. This just to show how poor that school was. Growing up in the type of environment you would how would you been able to break the statistic of being a highschool dropout and later going to jail or dead in the street.
The Jews broke the fence I escape the death camp. All of the Jews knew they weren't gonna make it out alive so they tried to escape because they didn't wantto die. So the Jews knew the best way to stay alive was to escape but only a few made it. Most of the Jew would eat all the rotten food because sometimes that's all the food they get. There were 250,000 men,women killed from the Sobibor.
Some Jews also went to the concentration camps. Bad plumbing and people would die of starvation by and the Nazi’s actually did this on purpose by giving them small amounts of food. Some people had money to smuggle food into the ghettos. During winter there wasn’t enough heating so this made them more prone to catching diseases. Any gatherings in the ghettos where held as threat.
The working conditions were dreadful as safety wasn’t a priority. The chimney sweeps would come out of chimneys covered in soot, their arms and legs would be bleeding due to crawling under small spaces but no one bothered about it. Occupational deaths were not uncommon for Victorian children. Nonetheless, Great Britain was the first country to impose laws against child labour in the nineteenth century which were then followed by the US. (Price,
Mr. Van Daan did not care enough to make sure his son Peter was living the best he could. The selfish side of Mr. Van Daan came out in the act where he got caught in the middle of the night stealing the already minimal food that they had in the kitchen. “Mrs. Frank: Your own son Peter… I’ve heard him moan in his sleep he’s so hungry… you steal food that should go to them.” (383) Mrs. Frank wanted him to feel bad for taking the food that could have gone to the starving children. Mr. Van Daan thought of his own needs before anyone else’s, including his only
It’s December 19th, 1998 and the trial for the impeachment of President Clinton is about to take place. He has been our president since 1993, and now they think he needs to be impeached for everything he has done. However, I do not think he needs to be impeached he is a very good president. So far throughout his presidential term he has created over six million new jobs. “As a part of the 1993 Economic Plan, President Clinton cut taxes on fifteen million low-income families and made tax cuts available to ninety percent of small businesses, while raising taxes on just 1.2 percent of the wealthiest people (whitehouse.gov, 2013).
Children were put in situation where they had to choose between school and work. Most times the choice was work because they had to support their family. Child laborer took advantage of this. They hired children from about ages four to fourteen to work in factories or on the farm. The children worked long hours with minimal breaks.
Chapter 18 entitled The Progressive Era starts by recounting the fire that broke out at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company which resulted in the death in a number of immigrant workers who were trying to make an honest living. These workers were locked in to deter them from leaving early and insure that productivity stayed at a certain level. Unfortuately due to unforeseen events many people died but their loss of life ensured that this practice would never happen again and it also resulted in building codes and why the regulation of the industry. This fire wasn't even the worst one in history the General Slocum resulted in more deaths years prior but I guess the old saying rings true its better late than never reguarding building and fire codes.
The progressive era was moderately effective from achieving social reform and lowering the influence of businesses over the people. An example would be the women's movement in 1800s. The women's suffrage movements were a constant struggle with lot’s of strikes and protests. Finally in 1920 the 19th amendment came to past allowing women to vote federally. Another example would be the passing of building heath codes, and fire safety regulations.
The early twentieth century was a time of major change in the United States. These changes were caused by the progressive movement where individuals and groups aimed at changing American society and values. As written in The Enduring Vision: A History of the American People, "The progressive movement began as preachers, novelists, journalists, photographers, and painters highlighted appalling conditions in America's cities and factories. Intellectuals offered ideas for reform through the creative use of government. Primarily middle class, progressives sought to improve urban life and working conditions, eliminate political corruption, and curb the excesses of the new urban, industrial society."
