Ellie again questions herself and her actions when she blows up a lawnmower to save her friends. She battles with her decision and believes she is a murderer. Although the choices she makes may deliver pain and trauma to others, her human spirit shines through the chaos to help her succeed. Through the characters in ‘Tomorrow When the War Began’, Marsden shows the human spirit’s ability to grow and triumph. Ellie’s decisive ability and her morals are thrown into chaos when she arrives at the family house and finds her dogs dead.
Liesel and Max become close friends, and Max writes Liesel two stories about their friendship. When Hans publicly gives bread to an old Jew, Max must leave, and Hans is drafted into the military.

Liesel survives an air raid that everyone else is killed on her block.
(Brown 2) Then August 4, 1944 someone tipped off the police and the Frank’s, Van Daan’s, and Mr. Dussel were all sentenced to attend the Bergen-Belson concentration camp in Germany. (Brown 2) Anne’s sister, Margot, was the first of both the families to die. (Gale 3) She died of a typhus epidemic that broke out in the camp. (Brown 2) Anne was never informed that her sister had died, but she had a feeling something was wrong. (Brown 2) Ernst Schnabel, on the topic of Anne Frank, wrote: “She sensed it, and soon afterwards she died, peacefully, feeling that nothing bad was happening to her.” (Brown 2) The epidemic killed around 17,000 prisoners.
Tarantino shows her driving in this scene to show that she is still has not completed her journey. She first explains what Bill and the Deadly Viper Assassins have done to her (by this time in the movie we know that she once was part of the Deadly Viper Assassins). She tells how they annihilated her wedding rehearsal with intent to kill her and everyone there, and they almost did just that. The last bullet was saved for Bill to end the life of the pregnant bride “Arlene,” but it did not kill her, it put her into a coma. She was in a hospital until one day four years later; Beatrix was awoken by the bite of a mosquito.

Hutchinson and Schwartz. In “The Lottery”, when Mrs. Hutchinson realized that she was the chosen one by the community to be killed, she did not tried to run, beg for mercy or ask her family for protection and save her from being stoned to death. She accepted her death without fighting for her life. On the contrary, in the case of “The Jewbird”, Schwartz did everything he could to survive, he even reached and caught Cohen’s nose, but he manage to get the bird by its legs and break it in pieces. These two actions are seeing now as very cruel acts in human society and should be
Leah was the first one of the Price sister to notice their sister being bitten by seeing “Ruth May’s bare left shoulder, where two rd puncture wounds stood out.” (Kingsolver 364) Rachel’s reaction to the death of her sister says a lot about the character she developed into here in the Congos. When her sister passed, she thought about what would happen when she got home. The only thing that really got her feelings in a twist is how she believes she will be seen as the “girl they’d duck their eyes from and whisper about as tragic.” (Kingsolver 367) She was sad at first but just cared about what others back home thought of home. Selfishness is in full force in Rachel at this moment. When a kid dies in Congo, the mother and whole
That there would be a tragic turn of events if a plane should ever crash into one of these locations. I can recall an incident when a plane had to make an emergency landing and flew quite close to the work center that I was in at the time. Fortunately for Kay and her classmates as well as me, a tragedy was avoided. The pilot of the plane became a heroic figure and a symbol of self-sacrifice to many of the families on base. However, in Kay’s case, this incident was a memory that began the cycle of manic depression she
Perhaps, because she saved one life, the rest would have to fall. Her actions led to terrible suffering for Creon and his family; almost like a curse. Haemon, her fiancé, was so in love with her that he actually fought with his father, the King, for her rights. When he could not do anything about Antigone being buried alive, he stabbed himself out of grief for his love with Antigone and anger towards his father. Because of the son’s death, Creon’s wife, too, killed herself out of grief.
