“Human suffering anywhere concerns men and women everywhere.”(Ellie Weisel). The Holocaust is often a topic authors use to educate readers about the horrors that happened in our world over 70 years ago. However no matter how many years go by it is not only important that the victims are never forgotten but also the moral message is passed on from generation to generation. The Terrible Things, by Eve Bunting, and Child of the Holocaust, by Fred Gross, both depict the topic of the Holocaust but emphasize different evidence and information to create an overall message to the reader. First off, in the allegory Terrible Things, by Eve Bunting she uses a forest full of animals to represent the horrific events that went on during the Holocaust.
After the I World War the crisis existed in each sphere of people’s lives, from economics to culture. Declination which came to the societies of all the countries, which took part in the war, had to be removed. People needed inspiration and comfort, they needed hope and positive emotions to be able to cope with all the destructions the war had brought. In USA the process of renewing began with great migration of African American from dilapidated South to industrial and developed North, “in cities such as Chicago; Washington, D.C.; and New York City, the recently migrated sought found (to some degree) new opportunities, both economic and artistic” (Poets 2004). In the world of literature, and poetry in particular, new personalities appeared.
She survived the death of her first love and even though afterwards she loved again she was a changed person, colder and more focused on personal gains that anything else. What would she have been like if Caesar wouldn’t have been murdered? How would History look like if Octavian’s Admiral Agrippa would have worked for the opposite side? We will never know but what we do know is, that Cleopatra is one of the most well-known and inspiring Women in history. The myths and secrets that surround her make her and the courage that she showed during her lifetime even more
Marcile Davis, high school junior, wrote to her senator, Arthur Capper. Whether or not he personally read the letter is unclear, however the letter was preserved on the Kansas Memories Website. In her letter, she discusses the propaganda of the time, her concerns with starting a war, and her disapproval of any war at that time. To further analyze, it would be wise to consider any outside factors that went into her background as a small-town Kansan girl from Clay Center, her view on numerous issues could have been shaped by the isolationist viewpoint so common in her country. She could have wanted the money that would be spent on war to be spent on something her area would see the impact of, like more work programs made by FDR.
Teach. Teach interesting information that I’ve already learned from Mr.Bartlett’s world history class. So you’ve reached paragraph one. The Battle of Fort Sumter. This is a crucial,important, and interesting event that launched the civil war.
The opening paragraph of “Shooting Dad,” written by Sarah Vowell, starts by describing the way things go about in her household. The effect given by the description is appealing to the reader’s senses because it automatically informs the reader of the conflict in the story, which is the conflict between a republican father who obsesses over guns and a democratic daughter who considers herself artistic. The historical term “house divided” was a speech spoken by Abraham Lincoln to list the conflicts between the North and the South, and Vowell included the term to help the reader understand the differences between her and her father’s interests, and how they disagree on plenty of things that cause conflicts between the two.
Title Your Essay Former president Abraham Lincoln acknowledges the horrors of the battle at Gettysburg in his speech, the Gettysburg Address, as a gain in American freedoms rather than a defeat.

The United States was at war with themselves and its people were in a battle between their ears. The citizens of the United States needed inspiration to trudge through the Civil War and ultimately needed to be encouraged to reunite as a whole. Inspiration most often comes from leaders and those who are looked up to- at this time, Abraham Lincoln was the biggest leader in the nation’s eyes. Lincoln, in preparation for his second presidency, delivered an Inaugural Address carrying views along with thoughts expected by none. The citizens of the United States were prepared to hear his views on politics, abolishing slavery and overall states’ rights.
This is why, many creative photographers have complained of not receiving the needed attention and recognition as is given to artists and architects. But the good news is that, as stated above, things have changed in this direction. Apart from its collection of photographs, the National Gallery of Art is now including photography in its major exhibitions, and bringing photographers together to exhibit their products as well. And according to Fiofiori, efforts have been made by private galleries and cultural institutions like Mydrim, Nimbus, Alliance Française and Goethe Institut to attract collectors by mounting photography exhibitions. Individual photographers have also done the same.
The civil war not only had an effect on the government, foreign policy, finances, but also the people that fought in the war or had loved ones in the war. Reading biographies and first hand recounts of the civil war is the best two ways to understand how it felt to live during this time in history. It’s an important insight that helps paint a picture of how living during the war was, and how people lived. The first recount of the civil war comes from William Stewart Price. His account was recorded on June 22, 1937.
Moved by the sights, the future president succumbed to his distraught conscience; he took action and “demanded that city officials pass the first significant legislation to improve the state of affairs in immigrant neighborhoods” (Moore). Through a diverse collection of jobs, Jacob Riis’s knack for writing eventually led him to a job as a police reporter. Using his natural talent of photography, he managed to capture the tenement life in New York. Riis’s passion for reform led him to use the camera as a medium of exposure. His goal was to bring powerful images to the public and upper classes to evoke a strong response, to tug at their heart strings in hope for support of change.
The video revisits it’s opening shot by discussing the 2008 debate between President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, in which Obama had won the Democratic Nomination. Interpretation: This video is very straightforward, it is clear to me that the Artist, Carrie Mae Weems, didn’t wish to simply play out the history, but reenacted it how she remembers it using her own artistic twist. She explains that although the civil rights movement had happened when she was younger, we are still fighting the same issues today. She showcases this in the scene in which she is talking to a beautiful [white] barista and when the topic of race is introduced the conversation becomes somewhat awkward. Much has happened since this video was created and her still shots displayed.
Writers use language to inform readers of past events throughout history in order to impact people for the better. The book, Farewell to Manzanar by Jeanne Wakatsuki informs the reader of a crime committed against Japanese citizens during the war. Wakatsuki writes a detailed account of her time at the Manzanar internment camp during World War II. In addition, the article,”Ohio town holds rare history: Races mix freely for nearly 200 years” by Washington Post tells about a town in Ohio that disregarded racism, even when racism was at it’s peak. The authors of these selections wrote their content in order to make people aware of history and to make sure that people do not commit the injustices of the past again, or to bring light to an innovative
As far as minority groups playing a role in a democratic republic, what role do they play? I mean, what are their actual rights, and to what level will these rights be asserted, while also benefitting the whole society? Mr. Volk explains the answers to these questions in this book Moral Minorities and the Making of American Democracy. Volk focuses this study and book on the protest groups that were actually active during the thirty years leading up to the civil war. And while this was all happening, there were the majorities that were getting into it with the newly confident minorities, giving Volk a perfect storm to study their not so perfect integration together.
