By using a sonnet for the structure of his poem, Wilfred Owen introduces a touch of irony. The conventional function for a sonnet is love, but this poem has a sort of anti-love, or rather, a love that turns bad. The young male population have so much patriotic love, and are so eager to serve, but this love turns sour. They spend time rotting in the wastes of the trenches, only to be mown down in the blink of an eye by a machine-gun. Not only are their lives wasted, gone without the holy rite of a funeral, but the lives of their loved ones at home are also ruined.
Journal 1 entry: early 1942 How can they be so blind? Hitler was right about how we Germans should eliminate those filthy Jews. My fellow Nazi leaders and I do not understand why the worlds, besides our allies, are against us. We are not harming any humans, but instead exterminating those who wish to be human. Jews are the reason that jobs are not available for every German.
Dr. Nyiszli wanted to make it clear that the Nazis were willing to kill men, women, and children not only because there intense hatred for Jews but also for research that was conducted through dissecting the human corpses. Children were killed just for pure research. The main causes of death at Auschwitz were either the gas chambers, a lethal injection of chloroform, or a bullet to the back of the head. The unlucky ones were the ones that were not killed right away because they either died from starvation or fatigue. “Don’t save him, you’ll only be prolonging agony” (108).
He sewed Jem's pants and left them on the fence so he could get them easily. He also saved Scout's and Jem's lives while risking his own. Boo was a fragile and gentle person. Throughout the novel, Scout, Jem, and Dill are curious about the "mysterious" Boo Radley because he never comes outside from his house or associates with anyone in the neighborhood. The children are afraid of him because of all the stories they hear about him from the people in Maycomb.
DBQ “Killing under the cloak of war is no different than murder”, Einstein quoted this after the sight of the Nazi death camps in Europe during World War Two, much like the English who tortured the Colonists. I think the colonists had every right to declare independents from Great Britain because of the destabilization of the colonies, the intolerable acts, and last but not least the French and Indian War. The British destabilized the colonies to the point of certain collapse. The violence in the colonies caused by the Boston Massacre which started when a resting group of English soldiers provoked by taunting words, opened fire on a group of farm boys and adults killing nine and wounding six. The battle at Lexington and Concord was similar to the Boston Massacre.

On Human Nature: William Golding's Perception William Golding wanted to write a novel better than the ones he read to his children. Golding was finally inspired to write, what is now known as Lord of the Flies, after witnessing the horrors of and after World War II. "The novel's sense of tragedy came from the most desperate time of his life, which was after the war" (Lord of the Flies Discovery Channel documentary). Golding "took the war and scaled it into a limited experiment" (Lord of the Flies Discovery Channel documentary). The Holocaust, which shocked the entire world, displayed genocide and evil beyond imagination.
Hitler was seen as “virulently “anti-semetic” by the mid 1920s. He saw the Jews as unnecessary beings. They were bugs, rats, and blood sucking animals to him. Hitler’s main goal at first was to drive the Jews out of Germany, but obviously, that message didn’t last for too long. In 1933, the German government began to target Jews directly.
They decided they are going to start killing them. So the Nazis started putting on camp where they are going to kill Jews and make them suffer until they are dead. But some Jews thought whatever they heard about the camps were not true so they trusted the Germans and moved in to those camps. Jews thought the camps were for them to survive from the war that was going on. The worst camp was the Auschwitz, it was the largest concentration camp.
While the groom is looking for the creature, he gets to Elizabeth, the bride, leaving her “lifeless and inanimate”. When looking upon the crime scene, Victor sees the murderer: “A grin was on the face of the monster; he seemed to jeer, as with his fiendish finder he pointed to the corpse of my wife” (Shelley 174). This evil act is directly caused by the creator’s rash decision to destroy the female and ruin his monster’s life once again. Many people agree that it is “Victor’s inability to see the monster’s own value and not his concern for the world that leads him to leave his “Adam” without a mate. This, of course, drives the monster to kill again” (Lunsford 175).
