This was a rather large family of dwarfs, the Ovitzs, and since Dr. Mengele “had only one family of dwarfs, he was careful not to put their lives at risk” (Koren 33). To prevent the Ovitz family from being trampled to death or catching illnesses, the family had its own living space and a “washbasin” and “chamber pot” all to themselves. They were also allowed to keep their own clothes, had people helped them dress and get into bed, and were carried to experimental clinics (Koren 33). While the Ovitz’s were most likely happy about having better living conditions, the immorality of the reasoning behind why they received better conditions runs deep.

Through unique imagery and word choices, Roethke 's poem presents the idea that people can look back after having an unhealthy relationship with a loved one and still have an unconditional love for them. "My Papa 's Waltz"…

    reader envisions the end of the world witnessed through the eyes of the last member of the family; furthermore, in that moment it is hard to remember that the witness was indeed not human. Man has long instilled humanistic characteristics onto inanimate objects: the car that takes on a (usually) female gender’s name, a hunting rifle that has shot true for the hunter. It is man’s nature to ascribe these tendencies to objects; indeed, the possibilities are limitless with the advent…
