Peter is two years older than Anne, and is much more reserved than her, at least when we first meet him. They do not initially get along, with Anne hiding playing practical jokes on him, and in general being herself. Soon enough, Peter and Anne bonded over Mouschi, Peter’s cat, because, as Anne says in Act I Scene 1,“I love cats. I have one... a darling little cat. But they made me leave it behind.” Peter’s cat reminds Anne of the life she had before they had to move into the Annex, and what she has to return to after the war.
During the Holocaust Jews were put through horrific things you can’t even imagine would happen to another human being. Jews lives were completely changed, they had gone from happy with their family to families torn apart within a few days. The prisoners wondered how long they were going to live. They had never known what day was going to be their last. The Holocaust is a very significant event in history because of how horrible Jews lived their lives back then and where they lived their lives during that period of time.
The rise of the Nazi Party from 1933-1945 had a profound impact on the lives of many people throughout Europe. Innocent people including over a million children suffered at the hands of the Nazis. The Nazis slowly changed life politically, economically, and socially for many people. The rise of the Nazi party changed people in many ways especially the Jews. One of the ways were politically, The Jews weren’t able to have a citizenship and not were able to vote.
Reading this book, I noticed that there are a lot of kind hearted actions in this book. I am agreeing with Anne and her actions are what proves this quote right. However, I could see where some may disagree. People like Mr. Van Daan and Mr. Dussel, have actions or ways they speak, that are very rude. There are many actions that I could use as proof of Anne being right, but the person I chose who has the kindest actions, is Anne herself.
Still today many people are still talking about what the Holocaust is and what ever had happened. Some people don’t believe that such a tragic event had happened and how they were all in concentration camps or gassed to death. Anne Frank and the rest of her family were lucky to have found a hiding spot where they could stay. If Anne Frank would have never wrote a diary or it was never kept no on would really understand what went on and how much of a devastating time this
Like many genocides the Holocaust was one of the worst recorded in history. The Holocaust happened during World War II when Hitler became the leader of Germany in 1933. The War was mostly present in Europe, East Asia or the Pacific Islands but the Holocaust, which was a genocide of Jews, took place in Europe. Nazi’s and SS officers would storm the houses of Jews and move them into ghettos eventually ending up in a concentration camp. Some would die on their way there but mostly all the deaths occured in the camps.
However, the middle children may also suffer from esteem issues due to the lack of attention or uniqueness, and usually dislike conflict resulting in them being taken advantage of by those close to them (Salmon and Schumann 17). While it appears that the middle Griffin child is not brilliant, due to suffering from a learning disability, he is more perceptive (deduced that Herbert may be a pedophile when he volunteered to babysit the Griffin children), and even an excellent student once he became chemically castrated. Chris embodies the middle child characteristics like suffering from insufficient attention, such as the fact that while appearing on promotional
It’s no secret that young people are not very rational. They rush into things and often don’t consider the consequences of their actions. This isn’t their fault. It’s just their lack of experience in life. There are many examples of this in literature and television.
I couldn’t go to Dutch school anymore.” To put this quote differently, All the Jewish people were discriminated and got treated unfairly. They were kicked from their homes and jobs, had to give up land, and even had to wear yellow stars to signify that they are Jewish, just because of what they believe in. And according to Anne, these people are “Good at heart”. It doesn’t make sense. On History.com, the text states “This culminated in Kristallnacht, or the “night of broken glass” in November 1938, when German synagogues were burned and windows in Jewish shops were smashed; some 100 Jews were killed and thousands more arrested.” This quote shows the extent of how Jews were treated.
So I have lots of time for crazy thoughts, I guess.” (Bradbury, P. 9) Clarisse’s family is different than the normal family; they talk to each other, and let Clarisse be herself. Therefore, Clarisse never lost her childhood ideals. She is still free the think for herself, be kind, and be curious. When Montag meets Clarisse, the two clash in an interesting way. “You’re peculiar, you’re aggravating, yet you 're easy to forgive.
After hearing what he did to those Jewish people in the building would have mind- blowing and extremely appealing to me. I would have either said “no” or just walked away. This is a big thing that happened after the Holocaust, the Jews were left with this horrible experience and lifetime of sorrow while some Nazi’s felt extreme bad for what they did. Some Nazi’s wanted to forgive the Jewish people for the heinous acts they committed, but the majority of the Jewish population would never forgive the Nazi’s. This is such a burdensome thing to come across and try to deal with because of the magnitude of the situation.
Joy, or Hulga’s, point of view is third person limited, the reader can see what Joy is thinking and feeling, but only at certain points in the story. Joy is a round character and changes from the beginning of the story to the end, at first she is a smart girl who did not trust many people, and by the end she was seducing Manely and wound up getting tricked into doing something she usually never does. She is an intelligent and innocent girl who has “never been kissed before”(448). Joy did not get along with people that well, and was easily annoyed by the people
