1942 was the year everything went downhill. To Elsa, the Holocaust was hard as is with Ralf being a Nazi soldier, but Bruno’s death made it a great deal harder for her. Shirley originally grew up with Elsa in a small town called Bayreuth. However, when the holocaust came into play, she decided to move to the U.S., where she felt it would be better there. When she heard about Bruno’s death, she decided to come back to Germany, but to where Elsa moved to. Her worst fear was Gretel. She had grown to be stranger than usual. Gretel acted like she despised Shirley and wanted to kill her. Her worst fear was that if Gretel killed anyone including Shirley, that Gretel wouldn’t be found by the police, and wouldn’t be charged.

“Everything is about Bruno now, I don’t matter to Mom anymore. All she cares about is killing herself, and once she really goes through with it, I am most definitely not going to stop her. When Dad shot himself in his office, she left his corpse there for days. She didn’t care, she acts like I’m not even alive anymore.” “Maybe I should refer you to my therapist,” Shirley said. Gretel's frown turned into a glare. She got up off the floor and walked slowly to Shirley and pushed her out of her room, followed by slamming the door on her. All Shirley could do was go downstairs, since Gretel currently didn’t want anything to do with her. She thought, maybe I should get her a therapist, it might ease the situation a bit. She quickly grabbed the phone and started calling her hometown therapist. The next day, Shirley found Elsa sitting at the kitchen table reading the newspaper. “Feeling better?” Shirley asked. “A little bit; did you bring your gun with you here?” Elsa asked. “Yes. It’s in my bag. Why?” Shirley replied. “No reason,” Elsa said with a smirk. Elsa quickly ran up to the room where Shirley was staying. She then went into Gretel’s room to grab her, and then came downstairs, with her left hand behind her back. “What do you want?” Gretel …show more content…
She placed the gun that was behind her back to her head, and slowly pulled the trigger. A spurt of blood showered the floor as she fell to the ground. Gretel smirked as she walked over to her mom’s corpse. She picked up the gun in the middle of the pool of blood and raised it at Shirley. “I’ve wanted to get rid of you for a while, but you went to the U.S., and now that Mom is gone and you are here, now I finally can.” Gretel said. She pulled the trigger and watched as Shirley fell to the floor. She placed the gun in her hand, making it look like a suicide. A few weeks later, Gretel was found by police, asking why she was alone. Since the bodies had already been found and they found fingerprints on the gun, they were looking for matching DNA. When they tested her, to find out who her parents were, she was arrested for a double homicide, seeing as they found her mother was shot with the same gun and her prints were all over it. She was then arrested and sent to court where the trial was held. She pleaded innocent, but was eventually found guilty. Gretel was furious and lunged at her lawyer. She was then chased by police, and eventually caught and sent back to court to add to her list of

... the grandmother’s head cleared for an instant. She saw the man’s face twisted close to her own as if he were going to cry and she murmured, “Why you are one of my babies. You’re one of my own children!” She reached out and touched him on the shoulder. The Misfit sprang back as if a snake had bitten him and shot her three times through the chest. Then he put his gun down on the ground and took off his glasses and began to clean them (O’Connor 508).
Misfit Shoots The Grandmother. When you try and talk your way of getting killed do you always think you are going to survive. Talking to a killer will never get you far with your
She locks the door behind her and waits for several seconds starring in the darkness trying to hear any movements. Kelsey walks across the room with her pistol ready, finger on the trigger. Just as she gazes out the window watching flames arise on the horizon, spot light's beam the building causing the room to shine bright. Kelsey turns around and glimpses the Nazi Leader pointing a handgun at the pimple between her eyebrows. Kelsey lowers her pistol to the ground and holds her hands to the sky. The Nazi Leader speaks in some form of German which becomes inaudible for Kelsey to understand. Then a water droplet falls from Kelsey’s face and she begins to say a prayer. She speaks aloud to cause the leader to lose his focus on what he should be doing, killing her. Conversation comes up through the question of Kelsey asking the leader why he has started this movement once again. The leader replies “I chose to eliminate the weaker humans in our society. With those people gone, our community and world can develop to the next level.” Kelsey decides to yell at the leader while tears running down her face that the leader is wrong to think like that. She believes that everyone was put on this planet for a reason to contribute to society. And that the purpose of the jews might not be prevalent right now, but they will find their spot in society soon. As soon as the argument ceases and tension in the room intensifies, the family Kelsey saved in the woods barges through the door and open fires on the Nazi Leader. Multiple bullets slice through the leader’s body like tissue paper. His body collapses to the ground with a bang and silence strikes the room. Everyone looks around and checks themselves for unnoticeable bullet wounds that might not have stricken them. After all body parts are clean of bullet scratches, they all surround one another with tears of joy knowing
“Ismael grabbed the gun and slowly rubbed it across his face. Then he pulled the trigger and there was a shot. Bang. One more person dead in the city. It’s getting to be a vice. First he grabbed the revolver that was in a desk drawer, rubbed it gently across his face, put it to his temple, and pulled the trigger. Without saying a word. Bang. Dead.” (Luisa Valenzuela).
The delineation of human life is perceiving existence through resolute contrasts. The difference between day and night is defined by an absolute line of division. For the Jewish culture in the twentieth century, the dissimilarity between life and death is bisected by a definitive line - the Holocaust. Accounts of life during the genocide of the Jewish culture emerged from within the considerable array of Holocaust survivors, among of which are Elie Wiesel’s Night and Simon Wiesenthal’s The Sunflower. Both accounts of the Holocaust diverge in the main concepts in each work; Wiesel and Wiesenthal focus on different aspects of their survivals. Aside from the themes, various aspects, including perception, structure, organization, and flow of arguments in each work, also contrast from one another. Although both Night and The Sunflower are recollections of the persistence of life during the Holocaust, Elie Wiesel and Simon Wiesenthal focus on different aspects of their existence during the atrocity in their corresponding works.
..., is asked to take the mother and June Star to the woods. This is followed by a scream and more pistol shots. Not even flinching at the gun shot sounds the grandmother screams that he has good blood. The Misfit quickly ends the grandmother's life with three shots in her chest.

"What happened then was both unexpected and extremely unpleasant. Lieutenant Kotler grew very angry with Pavel and no one - not Bruno, not Gretel, not Mother and not even Father - stepped in to stop him doing what he did next, even though none of them could watch. Even though it made Bruno cry and Gretel grow pale." This quote is from the the book.(Boyne, 148-149). The perception of women in “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” is that they are useful so long as they believe the lie. The movie “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” describes the Holocaust from a child’s point of view. Bruno thinks the concentration camp is a playground and a place that has a cafe.
Gretel wiped away the tears in her eyes. She told herself that she should stay strong, at least for her father. The maid ran out of the room, her hands covered in blood and an apparent worry glooming like the storm clouds outside. She whispered something barely audible and her father rushed in.
And with that, Hazel, with trembling hands, pulled out her gun. David had given it to her for safety, but she hadn't used it. That had quickly changed as the man who was the root of all inequality kneeled beneath her with hate filled eyes. Hazel pulled the gun and aimed it at President Richards head. She trembled as she stared at him with fury, and at the last moment, she moved the gun slightly down and to the left. The bullet went clean through President Richards
Shirley was like that. A lawyer who was the head of the legal department for a high profile company, every vacation that she went on turned into a nightmare. Everyone in the family seemed to be stressed out before, during and after the vacation. And so was everyone at work. Her secretary, who had to make al the arrangements, was literally shaking in her shoes when it came time for her boss’s annual vacation.
The gun was pressed hard against my forehead. I was tied up and couldn’t move. In the corner there was a woman dressed in all black whistling while emptying my belongings looking for something valuable. Too bad she won’t find anything here. It seemed like hours until after the gun was removed, but sadly, the ropes that kept me bound weren’t. Both the man and the woman searched everywhere in my small, cozy one-story home but what they were searching for wasn’t found.
