However, children of Nazi soldiers were a large group of children who were affected by the war, but in a very different way. They were sheltered from what was happening in the war. They were taught to believe that Hitler was an honorable, smart man with a goal to make Germany better. After the end of World War II, children of Nazi soldiers knew what type of politics and hatred their parents had supported and contributed to. “Imagine what it must be like to grow up as a child of a mass murderer” (Evans, 2016).
“So he told him very casually. He said Bill Harper’s coming up tomorrow and I thought maybe I’d go out with him. He said Bill Harper doesn’t know very much about fishing and I do so I think if you don’t mind I’ll get up early in the morning and meet Harper and he and I will go fishing.” (Trumbo 29) This shows the reader how uncomfortable and nerve racking it was for the son to ask his father these questions, which helps in better understanding the
Ponyboy vouches for his brother’s character stating that Darry “had been a real popular guy in school; he was captain of the football team and he had been voted Boy of the year”, but goes on to lament that at this point in the story he “didn’t have time between jobs to even think about college”(16). Given Darry’s accomplishments, it is clear that he would have been a fantastic student and would have made his parents proud. Coming from a working class background, he would very likely have been the first person in his family to go to college, serving a role model for his younger brothers. Despite his parent 's death, Darry could have forgone his responsibilities, since he is an adult and still attend college, leaving his brothers to survive on their own in foster care, or a boys’ home. However, he does not take this option and instead, Darry assumes
Between five and six million Jews were killed during the Holocaust, as a result of discrimination and it is still a widespread problem. Fighting discrimination and creating an equal society takes great wisdom and strength. Both the book titled Opening Day and the film titled The Book Thief share themes of wisdom overcoming discrimination: Opening Day reveals how Jackie Robinson had to be smart when fighting discrimination; similarly, the film titled The Book Thief illustrates Liesel’s need to be wise when helping Max. Jackie Robinson used courage and wisdom to help him battle segregation and become as successful as he was. For example, Jackie’s courage is reflected when he was ten and he was playing in a local park and a white girl started yelling “Nigger!
Have you ever been a hero of your society? Well, Snow Treasure, written by Marie McSwigan, is an exciting story of Norse children who deliver gold for their country when Norway is in danger during World War II. This story of adventure is important to many generations of many people because it teaches the value of bravery and patriotism. I personally admire the character of Peter and his friends and feel that this is a great book to inspire many people in many countries. This story takes place in Norway, during World War II, in about 1940.
Not only did he care about his soldiers at valley forge but many other times he had too. For example, “On a Christmas night, in a blizzard,he lead his men across the ice-flecked Delaware river to Trenton,NJ, surprise a drunken hessian garrison and seizes Trenton at the time…etc.” (the document “Timeline of George Washington) The battle of Trenton was a very good to successful battle that George Washington and his soldiers had.

By not rushing to get over the river but instead he took his time to make sure all is men got to cross the river slowly and safely with him.
The motif hero in the book night doesn 't appear often, the word actually only shows up one time. The consonsept of heroes is what is tossed around. The guy in the beginning of the book that tells Elie and his father that they are age 18 and 40 so they won 't go to the crematorium. This guy is a hero because he saved Elie’s and his father’s life and maybe others well risking himself. Another example of a hero could be Alphonse, a head of a german block, who took extra care of his workers by giving extra rations to the young and weak.
"His father 's warriors were wound round his heart/ with golden rings, bound to their prince/ by his father 's treasure. So young men build/ the future, wisely open-handed in peace, / Protected in war; so warriors earn/ their fame, and wealth is shaped with a sword." Page 24, Beowulf. This story is about the adventure of the hero from Geatland named Beowulf, a man who has come to prove his worth in battle and pride has decided to come to Denmark to defeat Grendel, the monster that has been terrorizing and devouring the Danes in Hrothgar’s great mead-hall, Heorot. He then goes on to defeat and kill to more monsters while staying with the Danes.
The change is almost insignificant as it is just a younger brother taking over for his older brother once the older brother leaves town for college. Wilder uses the mundanity and the ordinariness of a simple paperboy to criticize early twentieth century small town lifestyle. He uses the words of Joe Crowell discussing his teacher’s impending betrothment, “Well, of course it ain’t none of my business—but I think if a person starts out to be a teacher she ought to stay one.” In making this comment, Wilder urges the audience to discover that small towns like their banal lifestyle. The quote is also used to demonstrate that in a small town it is normal to have an opinion on everything happening in the community. In fact, small towns have become known for their gossiping and Wilder supports this belief both with Crowell as well as later in Act I with the conversation amongst Mrs. Gibbs, Mrs. Webb, and Mrs. Soames.
An example is on page 13 is, “I am strong and clever. Let me reason with King Minos. And if he will not end this horrible custom , then I will slay the beast so that no other must die.” This can show people bravery and courage can help us persevere through tough challenges in life. Another example is on page 18, “When we watch Captain America stand up to a corrupt leader, we feel like maybe we can find the courage to stand up to the kid at school bullying our best friend.” This explains that even when times get rough we can find courage and become more
