His parents were never supportive of his music because they wanted him to study law. Then, his father died from cancer, in 1902. This was the year he started taking lessons from Rimsky-Korsakov, but six years later, Rimsky-Korsakov dies too.

Coincidentally, this marks Holden’s physical deterioration and his self-destructive tendencies used as a coping mechanism; his damaged hand shows readers he is weak not only physically but also psychologically, a repeating imagery throughout the novel. His inability to handle reality and relinquish the concept of innocence is also a recurring pattern in the novel. Throughout the novel, readers get to know Holden through apathy and grief, especially through
The reign of Adolphus Hitler is known as one of history’s darkest moments of racial discrimination, but not many people understand the real cause, which was initiated during his abusive childhood.

He expected his children to obey his commands just as his workers had done in his previous job. As the oldest boy in the family, Alois Hitler Jr suffered through much abuse causing him to flee from home, leaving seven year old Adolf Hitler alone to undergo the same pain and torture.

He was raised in an orphanage, after his father left his pregnant mother and his mother died in childbirth. He caused many problems with the other children because of his ability to use magic, until the age of 11 when Professor Dumbledore came to offer him a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was a very bright child and thrived at his new school, earning respect from teachers and finding the many secrets of the castle, though never truly having friends. At around the age of 15 he began to focus on his new goals: to become the most powerful wizard of all time, to kill or remove all muggle-borns from the wizarding society, and to become immortal. He changed his name to Lord Voldemort and set out to make 7 Horcruxes, each housing a small part of his soul.

He was expected to act like an adult though he was still considered a child. Inside, Holden was struggling with the conflict of reluctance to become and adult because he thought it meant leaving behind his brother. He was pushing aside the fact that people change, and that change was not always a bad thing. On July 18, 1946 Holden’s brother Allie died of leukemia, and he never got over it. “I slept in the garage the night he died, and I broke all the goddamn windows with my fist, just for the hell of it”(Salinger 44).
Zits remembers as an eight year old, “...my new father took me into another dark room in the basement, one without any trains, and did evil things to me. Things that hurt.” (Alexie 75).

My opinion on this documentary is the parents wanted the best for their child, however, they did not think about the long term effects not just physically but also emotionally and mentally. There was no need to castrate David when they could have reconstructed his penis like they eventually did anyway.
