The graphic book Maus is written by Art Spiegelmen and is a powerful book filled with the themes of survival and racism. Maus is not just an overview of the causes and events leading up to the Holocaust, but is a true portrayal of a couple’s personal experience of trust and betrayal, separation and reunion, starvation and torture, and most importantly survival. One event that takes place in the book which definitely shows these themes is when the book eventually reaches the year 1943 and Vladek and his wife Anja are trying to survive during the holocaust when people are being sent to Aushwitz and Jewish searches take place. In Srodula, the Germans begin to round up Jews at random. To protect himself and his family, Vladek builds a shelter
I referred to unit 7’s discussion post where you outlined your essay. So far your research has proven to make for an interesting essay. I’m sorry I did not find a persuasive thesis statement in Unit 8 though, meaning I’m not convinced that there should be a policy change. I know you stated this is a working thesis statement which was not included in unit 8’s post. If you don’t mind, I would like to give some guidance. I used unit 7 statement to provide an example for you.
Coates' letter has strong feelings towards the injustices that blacks have encountered for generations. Coates uses deep words and historical events to explain to his son what his life will be when he grow up. The fact that he decides to write this letter to his son impacts my experiences as a reader because his son is just a kid. His son does not have any knowledge of what is going around him in regards of racism because he is just a little kid. He might not understood or took it personal when a white woman pushed him and said, "Come on!" Coates reacts like any parent would, but he is threaten with the police just because he is black. He is tired to experience and see these injustices. He is trapped on his own black body as well as his son.
There are many parallels when looking at Pearl Gluck and her journey to find the Divan and Asher Lev and his desire to pursue art. Some similarities are quite evident, such as both Asher Lev and Pearl Gluck grew up in Hasidic Communities in Brooklyn, New York. Other similarities are not so evident but become clear when looking deeper. Asher Lev and Pearl Gluck, both raised Hasidic, go against their core beliefs in order to pursue their desires, while still wanting to live up to the legacies of their ancestors, those that they learned to admire as children.
The Path of Qoph is one of cycles, of ebb and flow. It is also one of evolution where the student experiences various levels of psychic development. One of the lessons of this Path is that the mind and the body must work together for balance. The body is not to be looked upon as simply the gross container for the spirit. Body and spirit are not enemies. Both must work in harmony for true spiritual growth to occur.

Project Nim was a study performed to examine whether or not chimpanzees could learn to use sign language to communicate with humans. The purpose was to see how closely related humans and chimps are. The coordinator of the project, Herb wanted to see if he could raise a chimp as a human and have it behave similarly to a human child. In the end Herb decided chimps couldn 't use sign language due to Nim’s inability to form grammatical sentences and that he did the signs to get what he wanted out of others.
A weakness that I have is that I can be too empathetic with people. I am an emotional person, especially with certain subjects. But that could be helpful when I am talking with customers, that I will be able to relate to them, and what they are trying to say.
How can people who live during a horrible time make the situation bearable? Conflict is around us all times and many people don’t know how to deal with it properly. Anne Frank, Sophie Scholl, and Louise chose to remain calm and positive in their hard situation. In the “Diary of a Young Girl” written by Anne Frank, Anne has to live in hiding in an attic, and in order to keep from going insane she chose to look at the best sides of her situation.

I found the My Story assignment to be a fascinating one. I thought it was really interesting to get a closer look at how my fellow classmates defined themselves and what led them to their definition. The assignment allowed me to uncover another side of the people in the class that I didn’t know too well, but also it allowed me to see another perspective on my friends. The assignment is proof that even though people claim to know one another, they only know the information that they’re given, and that the information is usually only a fragment of the entire story. This idea of seeing an entire person’s story is what made the assignment so enjoyable, and even though I had a hard time coming up with my own narrative, it was still interesting to
