He imbibed racist ideas during his stay in Vienna, which he later fled to avoid service in the army (Encyclopaedia Judaica, 2007). After World War 1, Germany was forced to pay reparations to France and Great Britain. People in Germany were upset and angry over this, Hitler took advantage of this and gave them a target to focus their anger and resentment on: the Jewish population. The quote is from the Encyclopeadia judaica, “In June 1934 he had his predecessors as chancellor along with numerous others murdered as a sign of his total control.” This supports the thesis by showing that he had the ambition to do what it takes to gain more power. He wasn’t afraid to kill them, for him it was another step he had to take in order to further control Germany.
The first person she killed was a man named Richard Mallory; he was found in a junkyard with five more men’s bodies (College). Aileen Wuornos was found out and convicted with the death sentence; even if her sanity was questioned she was executed by lethal injection in 2002. On the psychological side of the scale, both Nature and Nurture are present in this case. Aileen had a very bad upbringing being abused, and abandoned which in tow would seem as if the nurture of her past drove her over the edge to commit those murders, but on the biological side of things her dad had some sort of problems as well, her father being a child molester that it could be argued that he gave her traits of being a molester, through heredity. This being said, in this case both nature and nurture had some play in part to why Aileen Wuornos became a serial
The backstory of Murder on the Orient Express closely resembles the story of an accomplished aviator and the murder of his son, even using the family’s maid committing suicide after being treated as a prime suspect of the murder as part of the story (Jarossi). In the real-life incident, the murderer was never found, although a German man was sentenced to death despite there being no concrete evidence that he committed the murder (Nicolaou). The justice system is, ironically, incredibly unjust. The authorities were unable to find the murderer, but suspected the maid, questioning her and pushing her so far that she killed herself (Jarossi). Moreover, they were willing to execute a man even though they did not have definitive evidence that he ever committed the crime

Well, aesthetically, sure. But what exactly is the historical significance of this image? It is not merely because it captured the assassination of a political figure, but the fact that it depicted a moment in time when diverging political beliefs called for extreme and drastic measures where both parties - the assassinated and the assassin - sentenced themselves to death row. The assassin was captured and later committed suicide (on November 2nd) in the Tokyo’s Nerima Ward jail cell he was detained in. He did so by hanging himself with the bedsheets.
“He saw that he was stone dead. His eye would be trouble no more.” (page 385, Poe) In the horror story “A Tell-Tale Heart,” by Edgar Allan Poe, it revolves around a first-person view of an unnamed narrator. He elaborates on killing an old man for the reason of him having an “eye of a vulture.” After 8 long nights of waiting and planning, the narrator forcefully kills the old man. Additionally, he disassembles the body, hiding each part under the floorboards, thus having the narrator refers to himself as “mad.” The main character should be put into a psychiatric institute and be watched under great surveillance based on the crimes he’s committed and due to his condition. To begin with, the narrator had a very unreasonable motive for killing the old man, in this way he is accredited as a madman.
The Demise of Rudolf Hess Randolph Bourne once said, “Society is one vast conspiracy for carving one into the kind of statue likes, and then placing it in the most convenient niche it has.” One large conspiracy theory was about none other than Rudolf Hess, a notorious leader in the Nazi administration and known for his inexplicable solo flight to England during World War II to negotiate peace with the British. Interestingly, that is all the solid evidence can trace about Hess’s life-his story remains a mystery after his arrival in Scotland. There are two main conspiracy theories over his death after his advent: confidential assassination and straightforward suicide. Rudolf Hess’s life was full of mystery, but throughout time, scholars and historians have been able to piece together enough evidence to grasp Hess’s proleptical life. In his early days, Hess enjoyed a wealthy childhood and was fascinated over Hitler later on: “Born in Alexandria, Egypt, on April 26, 1894, Hess fell under the spell that Adolf Hitler was weaving over Germany when he first saw him speak in Munich.
