The dress is completed with a red belt which adds a little flare to an otherwise innocent looking dress.
Their childhood was spent living with wolves, however they are taken in by nuns of St. Lucy’s who attempt to assimilate them into the human world through different phases.

In Stalingrad, historian Antony Beevor calms that, “Hitler’s ability to manipulate generals was uncanny,” meaning that if he had listened to the advice of his Generals and Commanders and followed his original aims when making his tactical and strategic decisions, the outcome of the Battle of Stalingrad could have been significantly different. Vasily Chuikov, the commander of the 62nd Army in the Battle of Stalingrad, said, “The heavy casualties, the constant retreat, the shortage of food and munitions, the difficulty of receiving reinforcements... Many longed to get across the Volga, to escape the hell of Stalingrad,” depicting the terrible situation in Stalingrad for the Soviet army. After the battle, Winston Churchill said, “The guts of the German Army have been largely torn out by Russian valour and generalship,” which accurately depicted Germany’s situation. The outcome of the Battle of Stalingrad was heavily influenced by Operation Blue, a failed German strategy, the strategic reaction to Operation Uranus, and by the German tactical errors involving the German Army, which include the division of the German Army, the fact that the 6th Army was unprepared, and the bombing of Stalingrad before the 6th Army had
One representation of an event this is when Soto adds the detail of a newspaper, “ He sat at the table with the newspaper in front of him.” Soto used the symbol of the newspaper two other times though the expert. However, at this moment the newspaper can be a symbol that her family and her dads stories are “old news”, or repulsive and that the fact being discussed has happened, and has been interpreted already.

A different kind of imagery that is found in the poem is sibilance. The use of sibilance occurs “where thoughts serenely sweet express”(11). In this line, the author first personifies thoughts performing the act of expressing something, then in the next three words uses serenely, sweet, and express; all of these words have the gentle “s” sound that sibilance creates. There is a sense of spice in the use of sibilance as well as gentle sounds, encouraging the lust for the woman. Another example of personification is provided when Byron describes the “smiles” and “tints” that “tell of days in goodness spent”(15-16).The affection toward the girl that Byron is focusing on is reintroduced when he talks about her smile and
Scholl: A great name, because it testifies the unprecedented courage in a dark chapter of our history: The siblings Scholl did not belong to the silent, tolerant majority of Germans in the so-called Dritte Reich, but offered a non-violent resistance called The White Rose by making together with friends and allies a total of six leaflets widespread.

Her parents Magdalena and Robert Scholl raised their children to Christian-humanistic values. Robert Scholl was a liberal and from the outset critical of the Hitler regime.
Most scenes show her courage, but especially the one-day at the trial of the People’s Court. Scholl confronts the judge by telling him how she feels and explains her view of justice. Her courage is clear throughout her whole speech; she is so into her own thoughts that she is not even thinking about who she is dealing with, or the consequences of her actions. Her independence of mind, values, and spirit lead her to change everyone’s opinion in the trial, but no one says a
