Houston also suffered from the moving, tired of getting used to new schools. She says, “In Ocean Park my teacher felt cold and distant. I was confused by all the moving and was having trouble with the classwork, but she would never help me out. She would have nothing to do with me. This was the first time I had felt outright hostility from a Caucasian” (Houston
Dave had many marks from the beatings he would get at home along with the burns from the stove incident. He also was caught stealing food during the school day so he wouldn’t starve to death, but since his principal found out and called his mother his punishments extended and he was starved and beaten up, “ By the end of the session, my nose bled twice and I was missing a tooth” (p.33). He was also sleep deprived, he said that one of his teachers “began by questioning me about my attentiveness. I lied, saying I had stayed up late watching television”(p.33). Appearance was not much of a matter to Catherine, so he send Dave with the same torn, smelly clothes every single day, but Dave knew exactly what to say when questioned “When asked, I had my readymade excuses Mother brainwashed into me.” (p.30).
To begin, the lack of financial stability in the Walls family has always been problematic, however as the mother of her children, Rose Mary never contributed much to the family income due to her stubbornness and free-spirited nature. A prime example of Rose Mary not providing for her family is a constant lack of food in the house. The children’s hunger is apparent when Jeannette says, “We did eat less. Once we lost our credit at the commissary, we quickly ran out of food. Sometimes Dad’s odd jobs would come through, or he’d win some money gambling, and we’d eat for a few days.
Many families were separated, and the fathers were usually taken into custody by the FBI for investigation. “As four or five families with their sparse collections of clothing and possessions squeezed into and shared tar-papered barracks, life took on some familiar routines of socializing and school.” (Japanese Relocation During World War II)The living condition was hellish; unfinished barracks, multiple families living in very unhygienic small cramped spaces. Many women and children were overcome by disease and died, and if you were caught attempting to escape you were shot. Their rations were forty-eight cents per person, given on. The rations weren’t enough to sustain them the whole day, especially for the labour workers who worked all day.
Loss of Humanity “I didn't know that this was the time and the place where I was leaving my mother and Tzipora forever”(29). In Elie Wiesel’s Night, this is where the book took a turn for Elie. He was still new to the concentration camp and he was being split up from his mother and sister forever. Loss of Humanity is what really changes Elie from a bright spirited boy, to a young kid that was sad almost all the time. At the very beginning of Elie Wiesel's Night, you meet Elie for and he wants to learn more about religion, but his father doesn't want him to.
To emphasize, Charlie ran away from home since he knew that he was going to die. “Thats why 1m going away from New York for good. I dont want to do nothing like that agen.” (Keyes 21). A few weeks after the operations, Charlie knew that his brain was shrinking because he started to do research on Algernon who had received the same operations. Over time, Charlie started to lose his knowledge and he became depressed.
One particular family member, the youngest daughter, has a legacy that still lives on today. Anne Frank was both a hero and a victim of the Holocaust because she was forced into hiding, her loved ones were killed, and her diaries positively impacted many. During this dreadful time, Anne Frank was victimized by being forced into hiding. The Franks originally lived peacefully in Germany, but as the Nazis gained power, they slowly moved to Amsterdam. The father, Otto, previously knew the city, and brought his family with him once he found a place to live (Kniesmeyer 519).
(P.134) When the mother attempts to learn some English, he doesn’t support her, he shows his dominance by telling her "its best if I take care of the English" and "the average women cant speak English". (Page 129) He also does not let her out of the house, Mami is very bored and depressed, she cleaned everything about 10 times and made elaborate lunches for the family on page 127. She begged the father for some company and for him to bring friends over because she needed to talk to someone new. He replied with "None of you are ready for guests". (P.143) Only after the mother explains how much she cleaned and how put together the boys are does he consider it.

Earlier times leading up to the arrest of Anne Frank and her Annex family were full of interesting events and emotion. The Franks went into hiding because Margot had received a call-up for a “work camp” in Germany CX(Colbert 37). They were deeply suspicious, so instead they hid from the Nazis CD. The Annex was located in Amsterdam at their father’s workplace (bio.com). They were joined by Otto Frank’s coworker and his family, the Van Daans.
Wladyslaw and his family were Jews and he told them that war with Germany is coming to them. Jews were dehumanized by the Germans. For example, they weren’t allowed on the sidewalks, they couldn’t go to parks, and they were beaten if they didn’t have their Jewish stars on them. One evening, Wladyslaw and his family were having dinner and they read on the newspaper that Jews were going to get sent to the ghettos. They all become doleful and packed for the day to come.
