The world will never really know why he really did it. At the end of Hitler life everything was crumbling around him when it did hit bottom. He wasn’t brave enough to face what he had done he knew he was going to get caught sooner or later. On April 29,1945 he got married to his mistress Eva Braun. Later that evening he committed suicide followed by his wife.
Yet, what really strikes me is the depiction of the bomb and realizing the Baba-Levy’s house daughter Neda had been killed by the bomb(142). Both her and my grandfather witnessed terrible acts unfold, but death was one of them that have been repeated in history. Some specific loses for my grandfather on the other hand were losing his father on the Russian war front, and just after the war was over he dwelt with his mother’s corpse in the house for about a week, after she died from malnutrition and tuberculosis. If people learned right away from the start the repetition of acts of war it could be handled differently and casualties and peoples deaths could become
While researching the holocaust, I decided to read about first hand experience from actual survivors. These heartbreaking stories that came upon me were gruesome yet saddening. Twin sisters, by the name of Eva and Miriam, were taken away from their families and captured by Nazi Germany. Both were frightened for their lives through the horrific events that followed. The first night they went through as they described it seems to be out of a horror movie, corpses lying around, starvation, and suffering left and right.
Most of the characters living on Himmel Street experience sorrow from the sudden passing of a loved one as a result of World War Two (WWII), and this influences the novel in many ways. Neighbors, sons, daughters, parents, and grandparents all died as a result of the cruelty of WWII and this, along with Death’s cynical narrating, creates a dark and dangerous tone. A death in The Book Thief also changes a character’s entire life. For example, the death of Robert Holtzapfel proved to be too much for his brother Michael, and he committed suicide. This death then causes the death of their mother, Frau Holtzapfel, when her sadness over the loss of her only children consumes her.
Shortly after her death, her dead figure was thrown on a pile of other lifeless bodies. When I first read Melissa Muller’s Anne Frank: The Biography (1998), I realized the horrific manner in which Anne’s life did end. The image literally stayed with me for months. Fifty-five years after Anne’s sickening murder, I hated Hitler; I hated Nazi Germany; I hated everything and anybody that contributed to the crime that I could not get out of my head. To me, the death happened yesterday.
“One thing got to all of them more than everything else. They couldn’t make me cry.” Peekay was isolated by his family and suffered through deaths and losses. Peekay’s father died early in his life and from there on out he had to learn to live with the idea of death. The next deaths came from Granpa Chook, his mother, and Nanny. Losses continued when Doc went back to Germany, and a camp guard killed Piet.
Two years after their home had been burned down, in 1931, things got much, much worse. Earl Little's dead body was discovered laid out on the municipal streetcar tracks. Although Malcolm X's father was very likely murdered by white supremacists, from whom he had received frequent death threats, the police officially ruled his death a suicide, thereby voiding the large life insurance policy he had purchased in order to provide for his family in the event of his death. Malcolm X's mother never recovered from the shock and grief of her husband's death. In 1937, she was committed to a mental institution and Malcolm X left home to live with family friends.
Usually the Nazis would leave the ashes of the Jews in a small colored container one the train tracks so the Jews ... ... middle of paper ... ...ore because of how they had seen their family and friends die. So many Jews felt this was the end of their world and sadly, it was. (Josef Katz, pg 161) 6.5 million Jews were sent to concentration camps during the holocaust. The holocaust is a sickening story that still brings a chill down people’s spine today; it is without a doubt the coldest non-fiction story ever told. Germans hated the Jews and felt disgusted with them so that’s why the Nazis would end so many families’ lives with children and babies.
One of those many who died was Anne Frank, Anne Frank died of Typhoid just a few weeks before liberation. She had kept a diary, that told her story in her perspective, which her father found. One survivor is the author of Night, Eliezer "Elie" Wiesel. In his book he tells his story of how he survived. So yes, Hitler was a terrible man who had an idea that all the races should be the same and he does deserve that he is now one of the world’s most hated men.
It’s been two months and he is still grieving to a point where it is not sane. This melancholy combined with the anger he felt with the remarriage of his mother to his uncle so quickly after his father’s funeral was a bad combination, but what pushed Hamlet over the edge was the encounter with the ghost of his father w... ... middle of paper ... ...stairs room (209). This last act of revenge is not justifiable it is cold-blooded murder. When she called the Brady’s pigs she sealed her fate, and she was killed like a pig. Mrs. Nugent did wrong by insulting the Brady family and she did think and acted as if she was better then them but to go as far as to do this is unreasonable.
