Jewish people were separated from families. They were shipped to a concentration camp where 1.1 million people died. So many people stood there and watched what was going on between the gates. Bystanders hurt them during that time. Just how the Kitty Genovese case was popular.
The Jews that got to stay were carpenters, tailors, and shoemakers. One of the survivors said, “I polished SS boots as dying people screamed”(The Sobibor Death Camp). The elderly, sick, and invalids were told they would receive medical treatment, but instead, they were put into carts, be taken behind the Chapel, and they would be

She was all alone after her grandfather died, she went through someone trying to rob their home, she had to take care of a child, a little girl, seeing her loved ones die, and her life how she knew it and was used to vanish right before her eyes, see dead people on the streets, not very kept up graves in which they piled bodies in a huge hole and buried them. Her grandfather was one of them.
In the book Night by Elie Wiesel, it talks about how his time in the concentration and how they were treated, and what he thought about. He talks about how they were treated brutally and unfairly just because of their religion. How they were forced to live in poor conditions, and how they were promised a better life if they came with them. That promise was broken as soon as they got to their first concentration camp. When they first go their they saw the smoke coming from the chimneys and the smelling of burning flesh.
They “work to the bone literally” (http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10005263). They had them build stone quarries and coal mines. The worst of all the Nazis put the Jews in with fleas and lice. The living conditions got so bad that they would get infested with the lice and fleas. The girls wouldn’t clean up because it protected them from the guys.
Motif of the color red gives a warning throughout the Chapter. The red tulips represents life and fertility, Serena Joy is trying to grow her own garden because she is infertile, the fact that she can not have any child, she has no other choice to tend her own garden. As a matter of fact, the garden never reproduces even she works hard enough.

And how Ruth continued fighting on during her flashbacks, and near the end of the book, when she was feeling suicidal. Sarah is a great example of the theme of courage because, in the novel, her story is that she and her family escaped from the Nazis when they attacked their town, by hiding in the sewers. Sarah describes the sewer as "dark and scary" and that it "smelled awful". She explains that her father paid a sewage worker to take care of them, and they slept on boards over the water. The sewage worker brought her family books, such as the Torah, and a maths book, and they
People, like trees, go through phases, they freeze in the winter, becoming nothing but lonely limbs without leaves covered with white slush. Melinda, in a lot of ways, starts out like that it the book. She becomes a shell of herself from before the party happened and because no one else was there, she is lonely and doesn't have anybody to go to and to make matters even worse, she’s covered by the reputation that she has formed. In the book, Laurie Halse Anderson uses symbolism to convey exactly what Melinda can't say. In the beginning of the book, Melinda starts high school carrying her emotional wounds with her after something happens mysterious to her at a party during the summer.
I was surrounded by my family during the heart of summer celebrating the feat that the Galaxie actually survived its voyage from Lansing to Detroit. While tragedy showed its presence six short months later, this memory of my uncle was only enhanced. Tragedy can make mundane days seem special; this was the case for me at the Dream Cruise. An excerpt from David Crosby’s song “Page 43” was quoted at Uncle Rob’s funeral, “You should grab ahold of it, And you should dive right into it, And you should have a sip of it, Else you’ll find, It’s passed you by.” These words hold deep resonance to me in my everyday life but they hold their greatest significance when I think back to the day of the Dream Cruise. Had I not climbed in the backseat of the Galaxie that average August evening, I would have never experienced one of the most magical events in my life.
They were all being killed with their families” (Vonnegut 79). This was ironic because the act of making the Americans stay in slaughterhouses was meant to be a degrading punishment, comparing them to animals, but it saved their lives. Those who were not supposed to be getting punished were among the thousands of people killed in the air raid. By writing about this event in history and the people who lived compared to those who died, Vonnegut could further display the lack of logic found in
The ultimate people to blame for his death is the Nazis who constructed these death camps that were essentially hell on earth. Chlomos life after the selection in Auschwitz was dedicated to keeping his son, Eliezer and him together. Which was very rare in the camps due to such oppression among the prisoner. It’s safe to say that with his father, Eliezer wouldn’t live on to tell his story of events such as the Auschwitz selection and the

Before her doctor got her out of London and away from her children, she had already murdered her child. This was called “air raid shock”. Due to World War One, there was unfortunately a high number of new patients ready to open a new field of psychoanalysis.

One time Bailey came in completely covered in mud. Lisa and Kris couldn 't believe mud could be in so many places: eyes, nose, ears, bellybutton, even between her cheeks. After countless showers and pictures taken Bailey was finally mud free. Growing up being the oldest and only child/grandchild, the amount of attention she got was endless. One day her parents started to pack up all of the clothes, carebears, and take them down to Bailey’s grandparents.
As a result of this hatred, my Omi’s grandmother and her brother were taken by the Nazis and ushered to a concentration camp in 1943. In 1944, Omi’s mother received a letter in the mail stating that her mother died in the concentration camp. Omi’s family later learned that their grandmother was burned to death in an oven because she became ill and couldn’t work anymore. However, the whereabouts of Omi’s uncle was left up to her family’s
