Maus Activity Part 2

Heylo guys so I’m back to do the second part of the assignment for the book Maus.

Write an overall impression of what Vladek went through in Auschwitz and how it changed him. How has it affected Artie and Francoise?

Vladek went through a lot in Auschwitz. He struggled a lot there but it made him who he is. His time in Auschwitz is a big part of his life. Vladek stayed the caring, kind, helping man he was. As a Jew, he was worth nothing so he had to become resourceful to make a living. Some of his talents also showed because he would help the people in Auschwitz and get food, better clothes and wouldn’t have to struggle and eventually die. This didn’t really affect Francoise but it did affect Artie. He felt depressed and sad that he didn’t get to listen to his mothers side.

Well, my class has finally finished reading the two books and I have to say I quiet like it. Thank you to Mr.Hays^. Also you guys should give this Book a try, it’s amazing! I am very sad for all the people who died due to the war, you could call it between the Jews and Germans!
Anyways…that is all for this blog post, See ya next time^💕👋

Maus Activity Part 1

Hello everyone…so today I have a class assignment! I read a graphic memoir called Maus and I have chapter questions that I have to answer so lets just get right into it.

Chapter 1

Why does Art Spiegelman use mice instead of people to portray the characters in the story? What do the mice represent?

  • He used mice instead of people to hid their identity from the people.
  • The mice represent the Jews.

Chapter 2

Why does Ms.Stefanska go to jail? What role did Anja play in Ms.Stefanska going to jail?

  • Ms. Stefanska went to jail because she hid some comunist papers.
  • The role that Anja played was that she was the one who gave her the papers and told her to hide it.

Chapter 3

What does Vladek mean on page 50, when he says, “Well at least I did something.” Do you believe that he is justified in feeling this way? Explain.

  • Vladek means that killing one of the Nazi’s men, he did some what of a service and didn’t leave the body.
  • I don’t think he’s justified in feeling this way because he did after all kill someone.

Chapter 4

Although Jews were allowed only limited rations under the Nazi occupation, Vladek manages to circumvent these restrictions for a while. What methods does he use to support himself and his family?

  • He sells clothes and uses jewelry to get food and looks for jobs.

Chapter 5

How did Vladek care for Anja after the destruction of the Srodula ghetto? Contrast his behavior toward his first wife, during the worst years of the war, with the way he now treats Mala.

  • Vladek treated Anja very kindly after the destruction of the Srodula ghetto. He was supportive and treated her with great care. Vladek didn’t treat Mala well and blamed her for lots of the problems.

Chapter 6

Why does Artie call his father a murderer? Is he justified? Who else has he called a murderer, and why?

  • Artie called his father a  murderer because he burned Anja’s (his mother) diaries.
  • He is justified because that was the only way he could have known about his mother and her conditions

Summary

After turning sixteen Beatrice Prior is now ready to take the test that will determine her fate in the city. The test will tell her whether she belongs with Dauntless (the brave), Erudite (the intelligent), Abnegation (the selfness), candor (the honest), or Amity (the peaceful). However, when Beatrice takes her test, her results show that she belongs to three factions, labeling her as part of a dangerous group: the Divergent. Beatrice then chooses to go to Dauntless in hopes of being able to learn how to defend herself from those who kill Divergent. With the help of unexpected friends and a mysterious trainer named four, Beatrice, who now calls herself Tris, digs deeper into the mystery of divergent and learns about a terrible plan. Abengation, her home faction, will be destroyed by the Dauntless, mind controlled by the Erudite. Tris must now find a way to save her home faction without revealing that she is a Divergent.

Happy Saturday

Hello everyone so I’m back with another Inspiration Saturday yay haha. So this weeks quote is “Rejection is protection”, this is one of favorite quotes💕 and it means that if you get rejected for anything lets say jobs, relationships, education etc. it basically means that it’s protecting you and that there is something better out there for you. Our life’s path is already made so everything is meant to happen and take the rejection as a good positive thing.

Anyways so that’s it for inspiration saturday…see ya next week~👋💖

Happy Saturday

Heyloo everyone~ So I’ve decided to post inspirational quotes every saturday on my blog…and that is what my post is going to be about:)

“Happiness is found when you stop comparing yourself to other people”

This quote is so true!  We tend to compare ourselves so much that we feel that we need to be like other people…instead of appreciating our flaws we don’t even notice them! So take a moment to appreciate our flaws and find happiness~

So hope you guys enjoy this post…Have a lovely weekend👌💖~ Goodbye^~^🙊👋

Stargirl!

Hello peeps, How is it going? So this week I am back with another book review and the book is Stargirl…..I honestly love love love this book! Its one of my favorites and I will say this for sure that you have to grab a copy 🙂 Anyways lets go on to the review……

Author: Jerry Spinelli

Setting: Mica High school

Summary

Stargirl (main character) left homeschooling and went to a real public school for tenth grade in Arizona. When she got to the school, students kind of hated her. She was always happy, outgoing, full of enthusiasm. She carried a Ukele which she would sing “Happy birthday” to people and had a pet rat named Cinnamon. The students thought that she was fake. They only liked her when she cheered for their football team. She also cheered for the opposing team and the school didn’t like that and it turned the school against her. Leo (being dumb) told Stargirl to change and be like everyone else because the school didn’t like them……Leo is a guy in the school that Stargirl is dating. She changes herself but……..Haha you have to read the book to find out 😉

At the end of this book she leaves the state.

There is a second book for this novel so guess who will be doing a book review on that next haha Mee! 🙂

Conclusion

This book is very cute and just full of life….I really how it talks about Stargirl being different which is a good thing…..You don’t always have to be like everyone else! Really appreciate the message this book gives out.

Characters

Stargirl, Leo Borlock, Archi Brubaker, Kevin Quinlan, Hillari.

Things I like about his book

  • Well written
  • Stargirl is very honest
  • She is being herself
  • The character Archie!
