Book Selection: The Boy with the Striped Pajamas
Author: John Boyne
Using support from your research materials, identify and explain any political, social, economic, or cultural issues that may shape the story.
The things that shaped the story were social and cultural issues. The social issues in Boy in the Striped Pajamas that shaped the story are: Some people did not want to talk to others who did not look like they did. People who did not have blonde hair and blue eyes were just outsiders and not welcome in society. The cultural issues were: Many of the Germans executed the Jewish because they had different beliefs, looked, and acted different than them.
Thank you for Watching!
Imagine what it would be like to live in this situation. Using supporting details from your research, discuss the greatest challenges people might face under these circumstances.
The greatest challenge would probably be discrimination. The Nazi's were for antisemitism and racism, and the Jews were not of the same type of people that the Germans were, so Nazi's would kill them. Another challenge would be (if you were Jewish or of a different race) the way you were treated, many children (as well as adults) were: Killed when upon arrival in killing centers; killed immediately after birth or in institutions; children born in ghettos and camps who survived because prisoners hid them; used as laborers and as subjects of medical experiments; killed during reprisal operations or so-called anti-partisan operations; starved to death; sent directly to gas chambers, or died because of unsanitary work places.
Indoctrinating German Youth
This project was by:
Based on your research, describe how these circumstances would affect a person’s identity development (crisis, commitment, diffusion, foreclosure, moratorium, achievement).
They probably went through Identity diffusion. This is when a person does not make a commitment to any particular goals, values, or roles. This probably happened because they felt like they could no longer survive once they were taken, and therefore did not make any goals. All though, some people such as Anne Frank always believed at there were good in people and hoped that one day she would get out of the camps and survive.
