December 7, 1941, the Japanese bombed American naval base, Pearl Harbor. In 1942, Japanese internment camps were built to restrict the Japanese in America. In response to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, on August 6, 1945 America bombed the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Hiroshima, by John Hersey, is a journalistic narrative that gives the accounts of six Japanese citizens that endured the atomic bomb. Hersey’s attitude in Hiroshima is to inform others of the consequences of the atomic bomb and the destruction it caused Hiroshima.
Throughout this novella, the denied ability to have an exclusive title other than just a number, the critical circumstances of the feared concentration camp Auschwitz, and the disability to obtain a soul, all contribute to Elie’s incredulity towards his faith. Family titles and names are a prodigious gift from God. To acquire a name means that there is an importance for the individual’s life. Without names, an individual has no meaning and no worth. The SS men have replaced their captives original names for irrelevant numbers as shown in the following quote, “I became A-7713.
Maus tells the life story of Vladek Spiegelman’s life before going to the concentration camp through his son, Art Spiegelman. In the graphic novel Maus and the memoir Night, when people speak out, it leads to violence. In the memoir Night written by Elie Wiesel, speaking out at the Nazi officer's leads to violence. Even when you ask for something very nice and respectable the Nazi officers will punish and harm you to get in your heads. They also do this to scare the
Japan was weakening, “The food situation gradually becoming worse and worse…” Stated in source H. America had many industrial resources to use against Japan and so Japan had essentially been defeated. Japan pushed only for the sake of their countries honour as the shame of unconditional surrender goes against their code of honour. Furthermore a warning was given to Japan with America promising to drop the atomic bomb, however there was no evidence and so it could have easily been deemed a bluff. An American nuclear scientist stated, “A demonstration of the bomb best be made… Japan could then be asked to surrender.” This source seems somewhat reliable as it is from one of the American scientists and they would know the strength of the bomb. With a demonstration it would for one, give the Japanese proof of the bomb and two, show them how destructive the bomb is.
On the tragic day of August 6, 1945, US Air Force deployed the first atomic bomb over the Japanese city of Hiroshima. A few days later, the second atomic bomb devastated the city of Nagasaki. These bombs were thought to end the war between Japan and America before other countries could get involved. To this day, Hiroshima and Nagasaki are still a source of pain and shame for those afflicted and for those who survived. In the poem, “Hiroshima Exit” by Canadian Writer Joy Kogawa presents a flash back of these events that occurred during World War II.
The Author uses similes to explain the events of what he saw before and during the Holocaust in many ways. The first example in the memoir would be when Moishe warns in a whisper that“they think I’m mad,” followed by tears that “flowed like drops of wax from his eyes(7).” This example occurs when Moishe, the beatle, tries to warn other Jews about the threat that the Nazis have against them and how he was taken to the Concentration Camp. This example proves my thesis of the author who uses a sad and dramatic mood through similes and imagery by giving the reader
“Advisory” George Bradley’s poem, “Advisory”, conveys the story of the 9/11 terrorist attack, counting down the tragic and unexpected demise in the first three stanzas to the aftermath result in the final two, starting from a normal bright day that quickly turned into a disaster in a matter of seconds. The title can be portrayed ambiguously as the five stanzas are in a form of advisory; either the speaker is communicating with the readers with announcements of weather conditions or advising them. The speaker talks like a guide who also happened to be a survivor who witnessed the event unfold right in front of his eyes, judging from how he recalls a male stranger that survived the catastrophe. Every end of the lines are in assonance in the abccba rhyme scheme. The first stanza starts off as a setting of September’s day in New York as of the beginning of the poem as well.

First, before I start this analysis, I would like to provide definitions of the theories and perspective, I am about to mention in this paper. Starting with the first dominant ethical theory, utilitarianism that states that your set of actions right or wrong evaluated through morality that can produce their own consequences. For example, the moral theory focuses on the consequences of the action of the United States dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War 2. Henceforth, the action, as a result, the United States dropping the atomic bomb nearly wiped out Japanese towns ' populations entirely causing to end Japan’s quest for world domination. Next, the second dominant ethical theory, deontology that states the right
