On the other hand Hitler worshiped his mother and when she passed away in 1907, it was a very traumatic experience for him, which debatably led to many problems in his later life. Today we all know Adolf Hitler to be a powerful leader who discriminated against the Jews, but there were other things that people never knew about him. He never had a sense of belonging, after his parent’s death and after being the most authoritative man in Germany, he was finally in control. When the Great Depression began Hitler recognised this as a political opportunity. In 1932, Hitler competed against Von Hindenburg for presidency but came in second in both of the elections which resulted in Hitler being recognised as a strong force in German politics.
Sometimes kids don’t have the privilege to a childhood. In extreme cases, kids are pushed into becoming adults. A messed up childhood can have lifelong effects. There are tons of example on how a ruined childhood affects the development of a person. Some may not know, but a killer of 17 million people including 6 million Jews, and the leader of the so feared Nazi party, Adolf Hitler had a rough childhood that messed him up so bad that he eventually became a monster.
He imbibed racist ideas during his stay in Vienna, which he later fled to avoid service in the army (Encyclopaedia Judaica, 2007). After World War 1, Germany was forced to pay reparations to France and Great Britain. People in Germany were upset and angry over this, Hitler took advantage of this and gave them a target to focus their anger and resentment on: the Jewish population. The quote is from the Encyclopeadia judaica, “In June 1934 he had his predecessors as chancellor along with numerous others murdered as a sign of his total control.” This supports the thesis by showing that he had the ambition to do what it takes to gain more power. He wasn’t afraid to kill them, for him it was another step he had to take in order to further control Germany.
In The Book Thief’s case, it is the society during the German World War II. Hans Hubermann for example, had to pretend he hated the Jews when in fact, he does not. “The Jew was whipped six times… blood dripped now from his ear… then it was Papa’s turn..” (Zusak 394) Max was afraid of men standing over him all throughout his life and now, he had to leave his family behind. When he arrived at 33 Himmel Street, he was advised to stay in the basement despite the place freezing. As far as Max was concerned, Death even said, “The basement was the only place for him as far as he was concerned.” (Zusak 207) Lastly, in spite of Rudy’s young age, he was also affected by the society.
Also, as the World War 1 had broken out, his adolescence was a time when he witnessed a lot of his peers and elders lose their belief in unity and dignity in humans (because everybody produced a way to blame the British) (Friedman, 2013, p. 9). Similar to family friend who committed suicide, Fromm was surprised that people decided to go to war and kill or die really easily (Friedman, 2013, p. 9). Fromm met with rabbi Noel who introduced him to Hermann Cohen, a neo-Kantian socialist thinker which helped Fromm to lay foundations of his thinking. Also, Fromm started to embrace Jewish mysticism. Fromm, his two friends – Leo Löwenthal and Ernst Simon, and rabbi Noel, they put out a mixture of enlightenment ideas and Jewish mysticism (Friedman, 2013, pp.
In “Daddy”, poet Sylvia Plath uses imagery and allusion to show her bad relationship she had with her father, how her life was miserable while she was writing the poem, and blaming her father for her status by comparing her depression to the holocaust during World War 2, thereby suggesting that her pain is greater than a world catastrophe. Plath starts off with Imagery in lines 6-8 “Daddy, I have had to kill you./you died before I had time-/Marble-heavy, a bag full of god”. In this sentence Plath talks about how her father is deceased, and describing him as a known and strong godly figure with the words “Marble-heavy” and “god.” This line also goes back to the holocaust allusion that is shown in the poem. When Hitler ruled Germany, he was also described as a godly figure. Hitler also had many statues of himself, or figures that represented him and his rule.
(Hook) World War II was a dark period in the history of the world, where about six million Jews were killed in Nazi concentration camps. (Bridge) A few of those individuals were Anne Frank and her family. (FS1) Anne Frank and her family were Jews, living in a time period where it was illegal to be of that ethnicity and religion. (FS2) On July 6, 1942 the Frank family was forced to go into hiding to avoid being sent to a concentration camp. (FS3) At the Annex where they were hiding, Anne and her family were facing new struggles everyday, such as arguments and dislike.
Anne’s family lived in Germany, and because of the Nazis situation, Otto Frank and his wife Edith decide, just as many other German Jews, to leave Germany. They moved to Amsterdam into a place called the annex. Then Mr. Van Daan, Mrs. Van Daan, and Peter Van Daan, a family friend of the Franks, moved with them. Mrs. Van Daan was always fighting with Anne. Peter and Anne
Through this study we intend to study his abnormal behavior and what led him to commit such heinous acts. Adolf Hitler was born on April 20th 1889 in Austria to Alois and Klara Hitler. Hitler saw two of his siblings die at a very young age. Early deaths in the family had lot of impact on him and drifted him towards war and death. Hitler was very attached to his mother but his father was an abusive and a controlling man who often used to beat him and his mother.
Millions of people don’t deserve this. On another history class assignment we were taught, ¨They wanted to isolate and convince them to leave. They acted as though the Jewish people didn't exist.¨ (Anti Jewish laws worksheet in notebook)The Germans should not have any rights to treat anyone like this, killing millions of kids, couples, and families and humans in all. The fact that no other countries tried to help or stop them until later on is terrible. Jews trying to leave to other countries were only accepted if they had the paperwork and money for it and most of the time the countries closed their doors after a certain number of Jews escaped and made it
