During the 1900s, the Holocaust was a horrific time to be alive. Jews were being distinguished by a major military organization known as the Schutzstaffel. Adolf Hitler and his men were separating Jewish families from each other by assassinating them and stealing the wealth they accumulated. But no one would soon believe that a survivor would have the abilities and the strength to publish and write such a memorable book that would soon inform the world about the Holocaust.

When the Germans came and started imprisoning Jews, he was separated from the women of his family and left only with his father. The Holocaust permanently changed who he was and when he was liberated by the resistance he came out a brand new person. Such as, “I’ve got more faith in Hitler than in everyone else.

In conclusion, people react in their own unique ways about certain situations.
