For example, his views on religion change and he suddenly begins to question God and the concepts of religion itself (Wiesel 31).

He rarely displayed his feelings, not even with family, and was more involved with the welfare of others than with that of his own kin” (Wiesel 4).
Literary Devices in Maus I & II “The Jews are undoubtedly a race, but they are not human.” Art Spiegleman begins his father’s short biography of his life in World War II with these words once spoken by Hitler. It’s a trivial representation of the absolute horror, and pointless hatred Vladek and millions of other Jews faced during this time. Art Spiegleman uses powerful literary elements like this throughout Maus, that almost flawlessly convey to the reader the emotional and physical turmoil Vladek faced, and the anguish Art feels in his attempt to document Vladek’s experience, while struggling to have some relationship with him.

Since I have read only half of the book, so far I find Soloman Lindo's character very decent when compared to other white people in the town. I agree with Sola because selling Aminata's son could have been a misunderstanding, if Lindo knew that he was Aminata's son then it would have been a different situation. I find his character different because he respects everybody and treats Aminata and Dolly as servants rather treating them as slaves. He teaches Aminata how to read, write, arithmatic and different trades that she would need in order to be self employed to catch babies. This situation is very rare because no white man would treat a black women with so much respect during that time.

The Significance of Loved Ones “‘The only thing that keeps me alive,” he kept saying, “is to know that Reizel and the little ones are still alive. Were it not for them, I would give up’” (Wiesel, 45). This is said by a Jewish man attempting to fight an onerous and exhausting fight against death. His family was his will to live.
