Movie Report: “Auschwitz, Death Camp”
In the movie “Auschwitz, death camp”, Oprah Winfrey interviewed Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel when they visited the Auschwitz Museum which used to be the biggest Nazi concentration and death camp. Elie talked about his personal experience at Auschwitz. He also explained more about the meaning of the Holocaust which he wrote in his book, Night.
The movie started at the entrance of Auschwitz where a young Elie arrived in a cattle car with his family, friends and neighbor. He smelled the stench of burning human flesh and saw the crematorium throwing its flames into the sky and he thought “This is the end of the history, the end of Jews”. During the time at the camp, his body and his soul suffered by SS soldiers. He saw people (up to 1.5 million) including men, women and even babies were killed. Women and children including his mother and young sister were sent immediately to a gas chamber which killed them in fifteen minutes. While men starved and worked to dead. Their bodies were burn in crematorium. All memories of Auschwitz haunted him day by day. He was confused that why the Nazi did everything like that. He didn’t understand why it happened. Were they human being? And then he decided to write and to teach so that the man kind will remember and everything in Auschwitz never happened again.
Throughout the movie, I felt the pains of the Jews and Elie in the death camp. The pictures of people starved to dead, the burn bodies and the personal items, everything seemed to tell me about their own stories, sad stories. There were a lot of suitcases with name on each case. The Jews left the houses with hoping a new life but they received death. How cruel it is. The room with tons of human hair stunned me. It made me realize how many people were killed. I couldn’t imagine the cruel sin like that could happen. Millions people…...

..., including Hemingway, from where he wrote most of his publications. In France, he went to Gertrud Stein, who appointed his generation as the “Lost generation” because of the emptiness that ruled from the young dead soldiers in the years after World War 1. When Hemingway was a boy, his father often took him fishing and hunting in the Michigan north woods. It formed lasting impressions that would later be some of the ingredients in his short stories, often involving Nick Adams, Hemingway’s young fictional persona reflecting Hemingway himself in many ways. He is the protagonist in over 20 of his short stories, including “Indian Camp”. Nick Adam’s father is, like Hemingway’s were, a doctor who liked to take his boy out fishing and hunting. He genuinely deals with a number of themes, which can be reflected back to Hemingway’s own youth. Hemingway’s stories are defined by their actions, and masculinity is often a big theme in his stories, just like death, disillusion and alienation. The short story “Indian Camp” takes place in the woods by a lake, and on the other side of that lake, where this Camp is located. It seems as though there are two social environments: the upper class, which in this case are the Adam’s, and George. Doctor Adams is well educated, intellectual and white. These things define this class, whereas the opposite defines the lower class: Natives, poor and not intellectual. This raises a race division, which is elaborated in the following. The title is......

...Smoke Signals: A Metaphor for Telling It has been countless years since I have watched a movie about Native Americans, and even longer since I have witnessed a decent one. Most films on the subject of the Native American people are often set in the past and are habitually on the subject of brave Indian warriors. I had never viewed a Native American motion picture filmed in a present day setting, dealing with contemporary issues until I watched Smoke Signals. In the movie Smoke Signals, co-producer and scriptwriter Sherman Alexie uses unexpected humor, numerous significant flashbacks, and modernized Native American storytelling traditions to best narrate his story and the historical plight of Native Americans. First of all, Alexie employs wit by mocking stereotypical reservation life, the frequently biased film industry, and even his own people, the Native Americans. From the opening scene as tribal meteorologist and traffic reporter Lester Falls Apart covers his seemingly uneventful daily traffic report, as he has for the last twenty-six years, from the rooftop of his broken down KREZ van, we are introduced to the odd and amusing way of life on the “rez.” In another scene, Victor and Thomas are embarking on their solemn journey and are offered a ride by Thelma and Lucy driving down the road in reverse; again, it is suggested that they exist in a somewhat backwards nation. In addition, Alexie is quick to taunt the movie industry by belittling white cowboy heroes; he...

The story is about two people who lost their job because of the company is closing without any notification.

Indian Camp

... “Do many men kill themselves?” and “Is dying hard daddy?” All these questions are Nick’s focus, which leads to Nick almost feeling immortal. As Nick is now sure that it is very hard to die and death can only be accomplished, if you choose to kill yourself. This means Nick feels immortal at the very end of the story, where he sits in the stern of boat alone. This is comparable to the start of the story, where Nick sits with his father in boat, but this time with the fathers arm wrapped around Nick. Experiencing the dead husband has changed Nick to some degree. The story is built up on two different themes. The first one being childbirth, as the subject of the story is helping a woman in labour. The whole childbirth situation leads up to the climax of the story. The second theme in the story is fear of death. This is reflected on Nick thoughts and reactions in the story. At the ending of the story, Nick speaks out and asks questions. This is where we realise Nick is asking questions about death, which means that most of the story, Nick´s reactions and thoughts have been about fearing death. The reason Ernest Hemmingway wrote this story is that he had fears that his own pregnant wife would not survive her labour. As due to the fact that Hemmingway was not present when his child was born, he had “overcome” himself with fear when he realised he would not make it back in time to assist his wife. From the experience of his own, he wrote the story “Indian Camp” a few months......

Indian Camp

...Indian Camp The story is focused around Nick, a little boy around the age of 9 to 13. It is hard to identify Nick since we only get to read things from a third perspective. We receive a limited amount of information about Nick, but there are still some things that are clear. At the start of the text, Nick comes off as an emotional, and perhaps, a weak child. We see that in this phrase: “Nick lay back with his father’s arm around him.” Nick is in need of his father’s protection, perhaps because he is scared? When Nick first sees the woman in labor, he is terrified by the situation. We see that in this phrase: “Oh, Daddy, can’t you give her something to make her stop screaming?” Once again, Nick is relying on his father for protection. Throughout the text, we see Nick evolve into a more mature child. Mayhap all the blood, horror and death he witnessed, made him stronger. Mayhap Nick now has a better understanding of life, now that he for once wasn’t protected by his father. In the end of the text, Nick doesn’t need his father’s protection, and we see that in this phrase: “They were seated in the boat. Nick in the stern, his father rowing.” They are separated. Nicks father is a doctor who seems very excited about his job. It is best worded in the text: “He was feeling exalted and talkative as football players are in a dressing room after a game.” Nicks father thought it would be a good idea to bring a child as an intern, which says a bit about the father. He is obviously a...

Indian Camp

...Indian Camp The Horror of Life from Birth to Death During the Modernist Movement, existentialist writers wrote about the meaninglessness of life. Existentialists believe that life is a struggle against the nothingness of the world. They believe there is no higher meaning to the existence of man, and they deny the existence of God. Ernest Hemingway portrays three different ways of coping with the meaninglessness of life in his short story “Indian Camp.” The three characters that portray the three different outlooks are Nick’s father, Uncle George, and the Indian father. Ernest Hemingway uses the environment in his short story “Indian Camp” to develop the thematic vision that there are different ways people can cope with the horror of life from the moment of birth and until death. In the short story, Hemmingway portrays a microcosm of life by including a baby’s birth and a man’s suicide in the short period of the story. The pregnant Indian woman struggles in labor for two days without any medical attention until Nick’s father’s arrival. Nick’s father describes to Uncle George after the procedure, “Doing a Caesarian with a jack-knife and sewing it up with nine-foot, tapered gut leaders” (18). The description of  Ernest Hemingway INDIAN CAMP I guess the beginning of the story is quite usual and perhaps even banal. The son wants to watch his father brings new life into the world. He is a young boy who helps his father. But on the other hand, despite the fact that there is...
