Meursault - The Anti-Hero Protagonist - Life is often interpreted by many as having meaning or purpose. For people who are like Meursault, the anti-hero protagonist of Albert Camus' The Stranger, written in 1942, the world is completely without either. Camus' story explores the world through the eyes of Meursault, who is quite literally a stranger to society in his indifference to meaning, values, and morals. In this novel, this protagonist lives on through life with this indifference, and is prosecuted and sentenced to die for it. Through Meursault and his ventures in The Stranger, Camus expresses to the reader the idea that the world is fundamentally absurd, but that people will react to absurdity by attaching meaning to it in vain, despite the fact that the world, like Meursault, is indifferent to everything....   [tags: Character Analysis]

Holocaust - Tarek El Zein Holocaust Jesus or Hitler. Anti-Semitism was widespread in Europe at the time Hitler came to power.

Kershaw maintains that “Hitler’s the responsibility for the genocide against the Jews cannot be questioned” and although his “‘prophecy’ was being fulfilled, he was consistently keen to conceal the traces of his involvement in the murder of the Jews.” Nonetheless, the acknowledgment that, “even in his inner circle Hitler could never bring himself to speak with outright frankness about the killing of the Jews” also provides evidence that Hitler may have felt obliged to an ancient ideology that was larger than himself and that he had to keep some of these events out of the mainstream German histories....   [tags: Holocaust ]

The popularity of anti-Catholicism comes from the conclusion made by others without taking the initial steps to find out the facts personally.
