Horst even mentions that he knows his father loved Hitler more than his own family, so he never felt very close with his parents. Both men would describe their lives growing up during the war as pampered and enjoyable. They went to school and received an education, while in the girls their same age would learn about how to cook and take care of babies. Later in the documentary, Niklas says he is ashamed and disgusted with the people who spread the ideology in Europe. He continues to say he is at peace with what his father did, despite the horrific murders, because it reminds him “what happens when democracy and humanity perish from the Earth”.
Though best known for his muckraking efforts that helped to end the Gilded Age, Upton Sinclair wrote nearly a hundred books in his lifetime. From a young age his mother encouraged in him a love of reading; when he could, Sinclair could be found reading for up to fourteen hours a day. However, his childhood was marked by poverty and his father's raging alcoholism. His mother took a strong sense of morality against his father’s drinking and of all types of sinning. These strict morals implanted in him made the socialist party very appealing.
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
He suffers from the fact of guilt because he still exists in the world when around in Germany, Jewish people are getting killed day after day due to the Holocaust. Hans Hubbermann, Liesel’s adopted father suffers through the guilt that he had to make Max leave the house. Han’s intentions were to protect him but the guilt of letting a lone Jewish man in a world where if he was spotted he would have been an instant criminal and send to a prison camp or worse killed. A significant turning point in Liesel’s life was when her brother, Werner, died on a train to their adoptive family. As a result, Liesel would consistently have nightmares of her dead brother Werner every night: "Every night, Liesel would nightmare" (7.2).
After running away from home she came back with her mother and started stealing from her to keep up with her free spending habits. She went out with older boys. Her mother finally could not handle her and sent her back with her father in Tennessee. Her father was very strict and did not show her much emotional affection, but he cared about her education and put it as a priority. She finished School and became a millionaire at the age of thirty-two.
Firstly, in chapter 8, his parents are not satisfied with the education in Waknuk and they have decided to send him to a school in Kentak; there he learns new things that the rest of the group does not. He is able to share and discuss what is being taught to him in his school to his telepathic group through thought shapes. According to David, “It was a great satisfaction to learn and know more, it helped to ease one over a lot of puzzling
In addition, though, you can see his genuine grief over the death of his father, and at one point says, “I know of late- but wherefore I know not—lost all my mirth.” His depression over his father’s illness is very real but often rolled up in his faked madness. On the other hand, Ophelia is genuinely “mad,” sick with grief over her father’s death and unable to fit in with the court society. Her scene with her brother, who just confirmed his father’s death, is heartbreaking. She doesn’t recognize him at all. Her death is still debated by scholars whether it was an accident or suicide.
When her father died she lost everyone that mattered to her. She eventually started dating people and getting back out into the world again. She had met Homer whom she had hoped to marry one day. The towns people were worried because he was a northerner and a Yankee therefore they tried to get her to stop seeing him, but they soon learned Homer was more interested in living the life of a single guy. When Emily learned of this she went to the drug store to buy arsenic, she wanted to ensure Homer did not leave her.
