52: Maus
Maus Maus, by Art Spiegelman is written in comic book form that portrays animals to symbolize humans. The author writes about two stories. The first story is of two survivors of the Holocaust. Vladek Spiegelman, a Jew who, along with his wife Anja, survive Auschwitz and came to live in Queens, New York.

The second story is about the son, Art, and his relationship with his father. Art grows up under the shadows of ... He grabs paper towels from restrooms so he won’t have to buy napkins or tissues” (132)! This shows how Vladek makes use of everything. I think he does this because if something like the Holocaust ever were to happen again Vladek wants to have money in case he’d need it for things like bribery. Vladek quotes, “even paper was hard to have there” (63). So this could have ...

They would send away the arrested by train to different concentration and/or death camps, resulting in the ...
54: Lord of the Flies: The Theme of Religious Persecution
... of The Flies reveals something else - the novel has many references to religious persecution throughout history. Golding uses many religious elements along with metaphors representing the death of Jesus, the torture of Jews in the Holocaust, and the ascent and reign of Hitler in Nazi Germany to present an underlying theme of religious persecution that proves his grim outlook on the nature of man. Golding's use of religious elements allows ... are too numerous to be coincidental, Golding's Simon is the Bible's Jesus. In much the same way Simon's death represents the death of Jesus, Piggy's death is a metaphor for the Holocaust. Golding was a Jewish man living in Britain during World War II. He was deeply troubled by the images he saw of the Holocaust and he portrayed that masterfully in this novel. Piggy was different from all the other boys as the Jews were different from the Germans. Piggy was referred to only by his derisive nickname, much ...

... citizenship, and then Elie eventually decided to remain in America. As many knew that Jewish people were high believers and mainly focused on religion.

Whatever had happened before he had faith that it was for their good, or one of God s greater plans. Either way Elie accepted God s ... would not let it go this far. God would have saved them by now. He was getting confused and many stories and words were running around in his mind. Elie Wiesel went on during the Holocaust keeping hope and faith no matter how hard it was and kept in mind that God one day will do him good. In a world of absurdity, we must invent reason, we must create beauty ... made some very strong words with deep thoughts to get people to think about racism and how cruel each individual could be.

And finally, was the role of "propaganda" in the Nazis’ assumption of power overstated? (Daniel Goldhagen, 1996) As many people who are learned in the field of the Holocaust will agree, propaganda played an extremely vital part in the Nazis’ rise to power, as well as their brain-washing of the German population into detesting all, of what they considered, "heretics" to the degree ... entice women to compromise on giving up what they considered to be a trim figure.

... quality interest it provided me. I hope you find this book review to be informative and entertaining. Elie Wiesel was born in 1928 in Romania.
