While laying barbed wire near the frontline, Paul and his fellow soldiers adapt themselves to the animalistic behaviors when they sensed danger. In this moment, Remarque successfully portray the dangerous moment at war and how one would do whatever to survive during such difficult moment. The following quote shows how they survived from another attack. At the sound of the first droning of the shells we rush back, in one part of our being, a thousand years.

    For the last one hundred years, the Armenian people have existed as a diaspora spread around the world.

The Armenians have long held a position of “Otherness” in the world. Being a Christian people in a Muslim empire, sharing a religion but not a cultural history with a northern neighbor, and appearing white but having traits of the “Oriental” has made…

    extermination of the Armenians? This question sets the tone, of the overt “events ”of 1915 in the Ottoman Empire, which begs the question, how can these “events” be recognized by both, the Armenian Republic and the Turkish State; but, does not create a discourse to clearly answer what transpired? Regardless of the label used, the result was destruction of virtually every Armenian community in the Ottoman Empire, which collapsed after the war.

Unbeknownst to me, I was a legal resident until I was awoken one morning and told to head downtown, sign a document, take an oath, and head back home for dinner. — What do you mean I wasn’t American? I said dumbfounded, for I knew no other home but the United States. Despite being born in Armenia and raised within an…
