Conflicting stories were told to the newspaper cover up the truth about how the prisoners were treated. I think the significance of this battle was that it was the most shameful and outrageous combat in the American History. Once the prisoners had escaped and was freed they shared the truth about the story. When the US government became knowledgeable about what really took place concerning the march, they were shocked and outraged by the brutality. Thurman demonstrated his anger by the dropping of the Atomic bombs.
Now me I was like my father I was social, curious and always wanted to be the center of attention. Now I was very wakeful at night I would wake up at night so than my father would put me to sleep with nursery songs. Event #1: In 1920’s Germany was bent beneath the burden of having lost the World War 1 the previous decade. Now in this war eight million soldiers and more than thirteen million civilians died or got seriously sick or injured on both sides. Than later on the Nazies led by a man named Adolf Hitler and this man did not like the s and I 'm not meaning my family in specific he disliked Jews.
1. Historical Background of the Text Before the First World War, the ideas of the Enlightenment prevailed in the socialist movements in Europe. However, as people witnessed the death of millions under the illusion of peace during the First and Second World Wars such as the use of the atomic bombs against Japan, the mood shifted from the Western tradition of hope to despair (315-316). Orwell’s 1984 is precisely one of the books that raised the awareness of the people about the despair growing in their consciousness before totally manifesting itself in a form of a more horrifying violence. During the Second World War, citizens had little freedom and hunger, forced labor, and mass execution were common.
America in the 1950’s was a time where neighbor was told to watch neighbor in fear of a spy from Soviet Russia. After the second World War, many had believed that the atheistic communists had infiltrated the United States government on a mission to shape its policies. Politicians became disgraced after accusations of being a Communist member or sympathizer. In his “Speech Delivered in Wheeling West Virginia, February 9, 1950”, Republican senator from Wisconsin, Joseph McCarthy, exemplified McCarthyism and the Red Scare by presenting a list of more than two hundred State Department employees that had been a Communist. Going into the Cold War between the Soviet Union and The United States had been a heated time for politicians named a communist; a near equivalent to being called a witch in Salem, Virginia.
Unfortunately the CIA had created the plans before Kennedy was in office, and they did not share all of the information with him and manipulated him into approving it. The blame for this failure lies with both Kennedy and the CIA. The motivation behind the invasion was the United States’ tremendous fear of communism. “I mean, now we look back on that and it can seem sort of ridiculous that we ever had a time when we thought the Communists were going to take over the world. But that is indeed what most Americans thought at the time” (Rasenberg 1).
All the tension and secrets paved way for even our leaders to be paranoid. Which is why the U.S had reason to believe that the chinese, north korean and soviet union were brainwashing U.S soldiers that were prisoners of war in korea. The fear had reached a boiling point when in 1953 Allen Dulles, the director of the Central Intelligence agency (CIA) had approved of the MK Ultra
George Orwell’s classic novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, follows the life of 39-year-old Winston Smith in Airstrip One, a city in Oceania, a super-state controlled by a totalitarian government called the Party. Wherever he goes, Winston is haunted by massive posters of the Big Brother, the supposed leader of the government. When Winston starts keeping a journal, which warrants torture and execution, he begins to question everything that has been taught to him since the Party took over. Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell is a dystopian novel because of the Party’s perpetual lying to all of its subjects, conscious effort to reduce the quality of everyday life, and cruel treatment to people deemed heretics. At the beginning of the book, Winston

Since they're in the middle of a war, Guido told his son to hide inside a box and to not come out until everybody's gone, Guido then sneaks out to find Dora but was unfortunately caught by German guards and got killed. This is the most tear-jerking part of the film, it is also the end. It shows how the father sacrificed himself in order for his family to be saved. A heroic act done by the far in the middle of the war makes people just want to sob like there's no
Three days later Charles Sweeney flew in the Enola Gay to Nagasaki, where the bomb ¨Fat Man¨ was dropped. Again, the Japanese had no knowledge of the bombs, causing even more devastating casualties. People have argued over the years if the atomic bombing was justified or not, and multiple points can be made on both arguments, yet I take it that the bombing on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was not justified. Keep in mind justified means to show or prove to be right or reasonable. The United States targeted civilians instead of military bases and the army, which killed a large mass of people.
