5: Example 3 (pg #256) People who have religion should be glad, for not everyone has the gift of believing in heavenly things.
6: View of the Holocaust What did you learn from the novel about the Holocaust?
8: VIEW OF PEOPLE 1. I used to think that the Holocaust was small and only involved armies and a few Jewish people. Now after reading this book and other books, I know that all Jewish people were involved in it, and millions of them died because of Hitler. It was not stopped because Hitler tricked many people, so they thought that they would finally get what they were promised
10: 2. With the attitudes of people today, I do not think anything like the Holocaust could happen again. I think there are too many people looking out for each other no matter what they look like or what they believe in. In America, there is absolutely no chance. Some different countries may get the idea, but I think it would be ended way before it could even start.
