Because this Scandinavian liked her voice, he encouraged his friends to hear her as well;they liked her voice too and she became very famous and popular in the Scandinavian territories. Another big achievement was when she performed in the Salzburg festival! She was not only famous in Europe, her fame and popularity grew over seas and was considered “the best singer in the world”. The reason why all these achievements are so clear, is because of the good diction and tone that Hughes uses. The tone in this passage sounds very biographical and very formal.
It made me realize that we take for granted our fluency. It affects all aspects of these individuals lives. These individuals were very inspiring and made me see that it is possible to overcome an obstacle as challenging as a stutter.

The Gulag was a government agency of forced labor camps in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Many aspects of this were very different from how the US viewed labor camps and prisons.

The human condition is a very malleable idea that is constantly changing due to the current state of mankind. In the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel, the concept of the human condition is displayed in the worst sense of the concept, during the Holocaust of WWII. During this time, multiple groups of people, most notably European Jews, were persecuted against and sent to horrible hard labor and killing centers such as Auschwitz. In this memoir, Wiesel uses complex figurative language such as similes and metaphors to display the theme that a person’s state as a human, both at a physical and emotional level, can be altered to extreme lengths, and even taken away from them, under the most extreme conditions. Wiesel often uses complex similes to advance the plot of his memoir and add a meaningful perspective to the idea of what it means to be human in a psychological and emotional sense.
We must not forget what they went through, lest we allow it to happen again. Millions of people died due to the prejudice of a political regime. The treatment of the Jewish people in Terezín concentration camp draws parallels to the treatment of North Korean political prisoners in camps through the country. In the novel Escape from Camp 14, Shin Dong-hyuk discusses what it was like growing up within the prison camp and his subsequent escape. He faced extreme prejudice based on his family’s perceived infractions against the regime.
The torture these Jews had to go through, caused many changes in the Jews that were in the concentration camps. One major change was their connection with family members.

For those who are unsure, oppression is the mistreatment of a group for an extended interval of time. Since there are heaping amounts of oppression in both genocides, this topic will be broken up into two subtopics; the brutality and dictatorship in the prisons, and how oppression happened in other ways both preceding and during the genocides. As many know, the oppression in the prisons for the mass extinctions mentioned earlier were unbearable. In fact, according to Wiesel, the mistreatment in the prisons were so bad that having frozen bodies and holding rocks so cold that their hands could have gotten stuck was just the norm (Wiesel 78). In other words, conditions in the camps for the Jews were so bad that something like being so cold that hands got stuck on rocks was normal to them, when it seems to society that that would be one of the worst pains imaginable.
In my observations I realized the extreme importance for interpersonal skills and networking. Even though I enjoy socializing and networking up to a certain point and I have always been a person that gets along with everyone, I have always considered myself as an introverted person and despite that I enjoy interaction with people I also need solitude. However, shadowing Kristín has inspired me to further develop my interpersonal skills. To me Kristín is both a leader and a manager and I observed her in both roles. Communicating vision and motivation in the larger contex and scheduling, planning, organizing and monitoring, making decisions and kindly guiding her subordinates on a personal level,.
Most of the proponents of the Law of Attraction say that your world is a reflection of your consciousness and I happen to agree with that. Notice how where you live is a reflection of your inner world of thoughts and emotions or when you go to other people’s places, maybe visiting a friend or a relative. Their places are reflection of what goes inside their heads and that is why we are upset when somebody invades our place and rearranges stuff, that constitutes a change for us and we humans do not like to change.Suddenly we feel like it is not our place anymore and the same is true with business or anything we do. THE REASON WHY PEOPLE FAIL people fail in business and are broke is because of what goes on inside of them. If you want your results to change then you have to change what goes on in your inner world.
“The first concentration camps were made to detain people without trial, usually under harsh conditions.” (www.theholocaustexplained.org) The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews. “German authorities established camps to handle the masses of people arrested as alleged subversives.” (www.ushmm.org) Germany blamed the Jews for their loss of World War I. “Concentration camps held two purposes, these purposes were to demoralize and dehumanize the prisoners.” (www.owlspace-ccm.rice.edu) The Nazis tortured them and made them break on the inside. It was sad to be taken to a concentration camp because it meant that it was the end of your life.
