Transcript of Emily Tuck: Individual Project; The Book Thief

Conquer or Oppressed? And how does it affect present day? The Tuck (Spatz) Family My family is from Austria which ended up being both defeated and ruled by Nazi Germany. We are Jewish so of course we were discriminated. My great-great-great-grandfather came over to the United States during World War II. Luckily all eight, including my great-great-great-grandfather, children got over seas safely with their parents. They avoided the horrific incidents with the Nazi Germans and Nazi Austrians. My Genealogy By: Emily Tuck Connections to the Giver Living in Austria during World War II
connects to The Giver because of the little amount of freedom given. Jonas and everyone else in the community couldn't leave or go anywhere they wanted to just like the Jews. The Jews weren't given any outside information from the Nazi's, and they didn't know what would happen. Jonas never knew what was on the outside until he sneaked away. Only a handful of Jews go that feeling. If they survived the concentration camps, they would sneak away, but they wouldn't know what their community would look like after the war. The community in The Giver didn't have access to many things, such as colors, music, and especially bad memories. The memories of the concentration camps or the basements of peoples' houses are kept in the Jews' minds forever and always. Connections to The Book Thief The Book Thief was about how a young girl found her passion through stealing. Liesel Meminger kept a secret too. She kept a Jew, Max Vadenburg, in her basement. My great-great-great-grandfather's, Wolf, cousins were still left in Nazi Austria. They were put into concentration camps or killed on the spot. Liesel, Papa, and Mama all saw the great walks through Molching going to Dachau. The same thing most likely happened to my ancestors. They trudged through towns, walking, starving to get to the shower of death. As Max Vandenburg said, "At least I know I will die on a beautiful day like this." Eric Cantor: On oppressed groups THE END Although there were Nazi Austrians, there were Jewish
people too in Austria. In 1938, when Hitler made a speech in Berlin, The Nazi Austrians helped attack. About one month later the true Nazi's attacked Austria. Although Hitler was born on Austrian soil, he didn't care one bit. The Jews in Vienna were captured and forced to do any clean up of slogans other than the Swastika. In November of 1938, Kristallnacht was in full swing. Windows of synagogues, Jewish businesses, homes were destroyed. About 96 Jews were killed and hundreds more injured from this horrific night. It is something Jews will never forget and it makes us appreciate every day and live life to its fullest because it could very well happen again. Connections between The Giver and The Book Thief The Giver and The Book Thief are similar in multiple ways. When Liesel first arrived to Molching, she would have nightmares every night of her dying brother and her mother leaving her. These lasted for many more years. The same thing happened to Max, the Jew. He had nightmares about him leaving his family, being taking and kept hidden by the Nazi's. These are related to The Giver because when the old "Receiver of Memory" was released all of the bad memories were given to the people of the community. They didn't know what to do with themselves because they hadn't felt in such a way before. As with Liesel and Max they didn't know how to get rid of it, but they had to live with it for a while. Also in the town of Molching and the same in Jonas's community, were the possible place of Elsewhere. For The Book Theif they knew what Elsewhere was and they had seen pictures of it, but it was for the same reason. False alarms. During The Giver, there was a false alarm because of a plane flying above the community. Everyone had to go inside of a shelter and stay there until an announcement was made. The announcer said that the man wasn't dangerous, but he would be going to Elsewhere. For The Book Thief, a plane was flying over Molching when the sirens for a raid were going off. Everyone in Molching went to their shelter they had been assigned to. When the 3 sirens went off saying it was a false alarm over a telecast, it stated that the person who called out the plane would be going elsewhere.

For as long as Eric Cantor has been involved in politics, he has taken a stand on supporting Israel through the difficult years that they have had to endure. First, his support, although not always supported by the rest of the republican party financially, has been funded through the Anti-defamation League of America. His belief is that as a Jew, Israel needs to have the support of a large country like the United States. Without the backing of a large country, Israel will fall to the other middle-eastern countries.
