Cynthia Ozick’s The Shawl describes how the hellish, cold, and inescapable setting of a march toward a Nazi concentration camp as well as the cesspool itself degrade its victims to a point of not spiritual, communal resistance but pure hopelessness and moral corruption. The story juxtaposes two Jewish captives in order to view the different effects the setting has on their humanity, or the coalescence of one’s compassion, human value, and capacity to love. Rosa, the self-sacrificing mother of Magda, is the protagonist while Stella, Rosa’s envious niece, is the antagonist. In their interactions with the baby Magda, Ozick frequently characterizes Rosa as humane and loving and Stella as ravenous and cold-hearted, invoking the idea that, through her love, Rosa is able to

In 'Disabled", Owen explores the veritable effects of war on those who live through it by comparing the present life of an injured soldier to his past life which was before the war.

Additionally, it shows how badly the Jews were treated, which links to how the ex-soldier in 'Disabled ' was also treated.

This can be further seen in Norton’s description of his daughter. According to Kim and Daniel Y.

The nazi’s will most likely to be forgotten to this day even though it caused terrible destruction for the jews. The flaws to the american propagandas was the lack of women rights that they should of had. Yet it did encourage a lot of women when the caption on one of them said “We can do it”.
