The reign of Adolphus Hitler is known as one of history’s darkest moments of racial discrimination, but not many people understand the real cause, which was initiated during his abusive childhood. The abuse that Hitler endured began in 1895, when Hitler’s father, Alois Hitler, finally retired after forty years of working as a civil servant. He expected his children to obey his commands just as his workers had done in his previous job. As the oldest boy in the family, Alois Hitler Jr suffered through much abuse causing him to flee from home, leaving seven year old Adolf Hitler alone to undergo the same pain and torture. Hitler’s mother was a very kind woman and tried to stop her husband from tormenting her son but would always have to suffer
Upon hearing Allie's death, who battled with leukemia at a young age, Holden is unable to cope with the reality and decides to take out his frustrations through destructive tendencies. J.D. Salinger writes, “I was only thirteen, and they were going to have me psychoanalyzed and all, because I broke all the windows in the garage. I don’t blame them. I slept in the garage the night he died, and I broke all the godam windows with my fist, just for the hell of it (Salinger 44).” He was inexperienced with handling grief and death at a young age; rather than rationalizing the situation, he decides to take out his grief and frustrations though destroying property and hurting himself in the process.

He believed that not any situation should have violence. For example, he did not use violence even when the police arrested him for no reason. Also, when he was attacked by a mob of white people in Durban, he did not want to press charges against the mob of people. He said “it was one of his principles, not to seek redress the world no matter the risks and consequences of his actions”. Even though he had some injuries he still did not want to press charges, which revealed Gandhi really did not like violence and he would do anything to display to the people that you can solve differences without violence.
This reveals the bias of the manhunt as the German conspirator had never meant to do any harm to anyone and willingly revealed the conspiracy information. He had not supported the Confederate cause as strongly as the other conspirators and therefore did not feel a strong repugnance toward the Union that murder seemed immoral. Atzerodt was threatened with accusations to carry out the terrible deed, but he made no attempt at all to murder Johnson due to his cowardice. Therefore, it appears to be unjust that he was condemned with the felony of attempted assassination, which he had never committed or ever wanted to effectuate. In addition, Atzerodt’s role in the conspiracy was extremely insignificant compared to that of Mudd’s and other associates in Booth’s underground tunnel escape route.

Hoyt handled the situation on his own, because that’s his job. He didn’t care what Alonzo had to say but Hoyt wasn’t tolerating what was happening. This is also Universalism.
The author wrote half a page dedicated to describing the monster features. The thing represents the war. If you think about it the growing up during the war time makes those children innocence die within themselves. Instead of worrying about what game to play with their friends they’re stuck worrying if their families would still be alive.

When he tells Andy about Elmo Blatch it gives Andy hope, because he can use Tommy as a witness to prove his innocence and eventually be free from the prison without having to continue his hole behind the wallpaper. Tommy brought unrealistic hope to Andy because when the Warden discovers Tommy’s story he immediately wants Tommy checked out. Officer Hadley takes out Tommy as instructed by the Warden and it leaves Andy with no proof of Elmo Blatch’s existence. The Warden made sure Tommy had no way of taking Andy away from him because Andy was laundering money for him and he knew the money would be safe as long as Andy was present in the prison. Of course the Warden would want Andy there because Andy was making him so much more money than before, illegal or not.
What does the text SAYS What the text DOES “Nothing is beautiful and true.” (p.43) I chose this quote because even though Oskar wanted to be like his father so much, he was still traumatized by the tragedy. Ever since his father died, he has become a more complex thinker. “There are so many different ways to die, I just need to know which was his.” Oskar does not accept his father’s death until he has finds a reasonable explanation for how it happened. “Every time I left the apartment to go searching for the lock, I became a little lighter, because I was getting closer to Dad. But I also became a little heavier, because I was getting farther from Mom.” (pg.
