the war in the middle east was similar to the holocaust. They are fighting over the land and culture and which is the true race and or culture. The same thing happened in world war 2. the attributes that are the same are a culture is being persecuted by another and they are all fighting for the "holy land". This is what is happening in the middle east. Were as in ww2 the Nazis just stole to steal and persecuted the jews and homos and anyone who defied them. this is the real world connection i found.

My propaganda is for hitler against the polish people.This particular one is saying that the polish are the enemy of the nazi party. The reason i chose this is because my protagonist lives in poland.Therefore he is the enemy of hitler and the nazi party.

1- ¨he outwitted the nazis by claiming we were useful to the war effort even though he knew that many of us had no useful skills at all.¨ pg 3 of the prologue he is explaining how a man saved his life in ww2

2-¨my given name is leib lejzon although now i am known as leon leyson. I was born in narewka a rural village in north eastern poland near bialystok not far from the border with belarus¨pg 7 he´s telling his name and where he is from.

3-as the youngest of 5 children i didn't have my mother to myself a lot so one of my favorite times was when my brothers and sisters were at school and my moms neighbor friends came over"pg 9 he is explaining one of his favorite times of the day.

Thomas Valdez - Boy on the wooden box is a book about a jewish boy. He is living in the beginning of world war 2 with hardships already and a father away at work. the book is a non fictional memoir about the little boy and how he survived world war 2. i believe that the ending is gonna end up with the boy revisiting the memory of all that happened to him in world war 2. This is my prediction to the ending of boy on the wooden box.

this is the connectioni found. both had their father's leave because of the war. both lived with their mother and siblings. Both had to live during ww2. Both were young children who werent exactly sure what was going on. both also had brothers and sisters. -connection from -ill come back
