- Death itself, poured into human form, walking a long ramp. This is the image that Josef Mengele riddled into the mind of Auschwitz prisoners. Dr. Mengele performed experiments that belonged in a horror film, not the real world, and those who survived these demonic delvings of “science” shudder to recall them. Based on information from Mengele’s personal life, behavior in Auschwitz and tests at Auschwitz it is clear that he conducted these abyssal procedures in the belief that he was helping to ensure the stability of the human race....   [tags: Auschwitz prisoners, Josef Mengele, world history]

Whilst that generalization seems simple, the amount of effort, determination, and engineering prowess that is implemented to achieve such a feat is in fact, the exact opposite of simple.

A Study of Winter Poetry

- I chose to study winter poetry because I often focus on the cold and harsh conditions, rather than the beauty present. These poems are excellent in making one see past the bleakness, and toward the magnificence of the dazzling light. The beginnings of both “Winter” and “The Winter’s Spring” mention the loneliness and coldness of winter. This helps the audience find common ground with the poet, since it is easier to see winter as ugly rather than beautiful. In “The Winter’s Spring”, “The winter comes; I walk alone” (1), asks the audience to follow as no one, but the author believes the in the beauty of winter....   [tags: Environment, Winter, Spring]
