Geier’s entire family was Jewish, and they were in a constant state of fear due to the inevitable danger they faced every day. On November 8, 1938, Geier’s grandfather was informed of the arrival of the SA and planned to leave with Geier’s father shortly after to stay with friends and associates.

Noreen Minnock Professor Katrya Byram German 3252 13 February 2014 The Continuing Impacts of the Holocaust on Families Analyzed through German Literature “Mainly I remember ARGUING with him… and being told that I couldn’t do anything as well as he could” – Art “And now that you’re becoming successful, you feel bad about proving your father wrong.” – Pavel “No matter what I accomplish, it doesn’t seem much compared to surviving Auschwitz.” Art Maus Volume 2, Page 44 The second portion of the semester has had a focus on how the Holocaust has continued to cause devastation and familial conflict even after the war ended. Of the texts we have read, Maus by Art Speigelman and Still Alive by Ruth Kluger were two very different accounts of the Holocaust, however there was one strong continuity between the texts: the effects of the Holocaust were not exclusive to any single person or family, survivors and their offspring continued to suffer long after escaping the camps. The constant tension documented in Maus between Speigelman and his father was not exclusive to their family as Holocaust survivors; Ruth Kluger also incorporates her family struggles into her book by detailing the differences between her and her mother, even after her mother has passed away. Because their experiences differ, with Speigelman being the son of a Holocaust victim and Kluger actually enduring it, the texts took different forms, both linguistically and aesthetically, to communicate their messages of familial conflict. Speigelman uses the selected quote to engage the reader and make them aware of how it feels to be raised by Holocaust victims, his dad in particular.

When Germany lost the war, he was very disappointed and blamed the Jews for the defeat. He decided he would join the politics to save the country. After the war, Hitler's speaking successes led him to the position of an observer of political groups in the Munich.

Hitler quickly became the new spokesman for the party.
Hitler was a mesmerizing speaker, capturing the dreams of many and gaining support among the public. However, this “political savior” had different intentions for the Jews.
