This a picture of a concentration camp In Germany in the 1940s. This picture was taken in Auschwitz during WWII. I chose this photo because it depicts how the Jewish people were treated at the time because of their religion. You can clearly see that living conditions were very poor, there is almost 4 people to a bed. The men in this photo were so poorly fed that you can see all of there ribs. The Jewish people during WWII felt othered because almost the whole country of germany was out to kill them. The jews were so othered that every day their life was at risk of being set to a camp or being killed. Many jews like Anne Frank had to go into hiding and live in a very small spaced because they were bothered because of their religion. 2. This connects to the novel To Kill A Mockingbird because the black people in the novel were also treated wrongly, they were beat, threatened, and in some cases killed. The black folk in the novel lived in different areas of the town, most of the living spaces of the black folk were not clean, and not good living conditions for them. Most of the black folk in the novel had many people living in one home.
By the 1960s the Civil Rights movement had gained a lot of momentum. Many nonviolent acts employed by Martin Luther King Jr. worked to create a racism free life for all african americans. The sit-in protest first started when 4 young college students from Greensboro North Carolina wanted to get something to eat. At the time restaurants were segregated with white only sections and black people sections. The students did not want to have to sit in a different section just because of their race, so they sat in the white table and ordered some food “-asked for coffee. When service was refused, the students sat patiently. Despite threats and intimidation, the students sat quietly and waited to be served”. Most people that participated in the sit-ins were mostly threatened or beat, so it took real bravery to take part in this protest “Often the participants would be jeered and threatened by local customers. Sometimes they would be pelted with food or ketchup. Angry onlookers tried to provoke fights that never came”. The african american people felt othered because they were not given the same rights as the white folk. 2. The sit-in connects to the novel To Kill A Mockingbird in many ways. When Scout and Jem were at Tom Robinson's case they realized that the black folk could not sit in the same sections as the whites. even at a case for a black man they were not allowed to sit near the whites, so Scout and Jem made a brave move by sitting with them.
1:The civil rights movement took place in the 1950s 1960s. Even thought slavery ended in 1865 the black folk still faced discrimination against the color of their skin. The civil rights movement was talking out by non violent acts of protest. The black folk during that time felt othered because they could not do many thing wight folk could do, they could not sit where they want on the bus, they could not eat at wight restaurants, and could not go to the same schools as wights. Rosa Parks set a good example of how proteins should be taken out. Rosa Park like many others felt othered that they could not sit at the front of the bus. One day when Rosa was getting on the bus she sat in the front, when she was asked to move she refused and just sat quietly. “The bus driver instructed Parks and three other blacks to give up their seats. Parks refused and was arrested”. After Rosa would not move the cops came and she was arrested but, because Rosa felt othered and sat in the front it started and movement of acts of bravery that impacted the civil rights movement. Parks unwittingly became the “mother of the modern day civil rights movement.” “the bus driver instructed Parks and three other blacks to give up their seats. Parks refused and was arrested”. 2: The civil rights movement connects to the novel To kill a mockingbird in many ways. Tkam was written around the same time period as the civil rights but the novel takes place in the 1930 in maycomb alabama. Just like the 1960s the colored folk of maycomb, one example of discrimination in Maycomb is Tom Robinson. Atticus Finch was defending Tom Robinson in court against a crime that he did not commit, by the end of the triel everyone knew he was not guilty but he went to jail anyway because he was black.
