The thing that best compares to the holocaust would probably be the plain terrorism in nigeria. I think these compare because of the slavery. Also isis and how they treat their prisoners.

It shows that he does not believe Hannah. It as well shows that the adult is always right the typical I'm right you're wrong. I'm big you're small and there's nothing you can do about it. Even though Hannah is right shmuel will not admit it because he lives by this rule. As well others believe he is right once again because of one rule that others believe but is not necessarily true.

We both say dumb stuff without really thinking. Like she yells at her parents and says things while not thinking about the consequences. I as well do that ALL the time. We both also like talking about things. We don't stay on a certain subject as well.

"Suddenly Feeling like an adult"-Hannah

That she throws tantrums and acts like a kid most of the time but in certain cases and matters she likes to be considered an adult. Though what she does is not adultish what so ever nor a kind deed in my opinion. All she did really was allow her little brother to hide a handkerchief instead of her.

Sure she gets a prize that her grandpa will give her as a bargain for it back but she has done this for several years in the past instead of her brother. Which is selfish but she also may have given it to her brother because her dad will yell at her possibly and gave it to him in this state of mind. May I add it as well made her sound pompous that she said this believing only by herself that she is an adult. Which later when she is drinking watered down wine her parents don't think she can handle it which she can't.

Now yes being able to drink wine and not get light headed does not mean you are an adult. But it proves that though her parents think if she can't handle wine she is not an adult, that also means that anything in the past she has done has proven herself to be an adult. So in their state of mind her drinking would be the first adult thing she does.

Now everybody has a different idea of what an adult is. Whether it is age, how you handle yourself, or if you can handle drinking. Hannah does none of these and I am pretty sure giving your brother a prize by hiding something is not something.
