Agnès Humbert's Wartime Diary 'Résistance'

Agnès Humbert's Wartime Diary 'Résistance' | Resistance Holocaust | Scoop.it
Mystery continues to surround Agnès Humbert's diary. The subject matter is clear enough: It describes the struggle of a French Resistance heroine against Nazi oppression. But many questions remain unanswered.
Mary's insight:

This website really focuses on the book! It describes how the author was feeling during the time period and how she put it into her book. Not only does it talk about the book, but Agnes' personal life and things within it. It describes things such as her weight "Humbert had lost 35 pounds of body weight" (Kitson), and even secret feelings that she had. It goes into detail about how she was during the time period and how she felt while writing her book. It gives readers a look into how the author thought and wrote will creating the book. It reminds us that these were real events that the author had to experience when she was young. The website shows details in the life of Agnes that alot of people didnt think twice about while reading her book.
    This connects with the book because it is all about the book and its author! It tells readers about how hard times were and how Agnes had to go through so much. She had to listen to friends being tortured, she had to survive on little food and water, and had to also live in disgusting conditions. She had to face more things than anyone could ever imagine. It also talks about the conditions people had to face in prisons. "a bed, the springs of which have been replaced by three planks with a meagre straw mattress on top" (Humbert 56), showing how even the simple things were taken from the prisoners. Agnes had to experience things that no one should ever go through. This website is helping us see just how difficult it was. It takes a closer look into Agnes' life and how she managed to survive this terrible time period.

Adolf Hitler

Student Resources In Context
Mary's insight:

This website was describing Adolf Hitler. He was a dictator and was the leader of the Germans when they started taking in the Jewish people. This article describes his life, from childhood, to when he became a dictator.  It even describes his birth and his death! They begin by discussing his rule over Germany, and how he began to destroy it. "it lead a powerful mass movement that destroyed democracy in Germany" (Kershaw), this is showing just how destructive and terrible it was in Germany! Hitler created so much destruction, and treated people so poorly. This website shows readers everything that he had created, and even destroyed. From death camps and prisons, to just plain torture, he did it all. No one was safe from his madness. Innocent people were involved in his mass destruction and no one could stop him. It shows us a little bit inside of what Hitler was thinking and how he planned to destroy the Jews. That is what this entire article is describing to us readers.
CONNECT:     This conncects to my book because of what Hitler did. In the book, he was still leading the Nazis and destroying the lives of others. People were being taken to his camps and prisons all over and being treated terribly. Hitler never failed to hurt people and in the book, the main character experiences this first hand. She is taken to one of his prisons and also to a death camp. Thankfully she is strong and is able to withstand the pain. Hitler controlled everything during this time, as said in the article. This shows through in the book because of everything the police are doing to the innocent people. They wouldnt have done any of it if Hitler wouldnt have told them that was what they needed to do. He was over powering every single person and was hurting everyone in his way. The book shows from a prisoners view and the article shows what went through Hitlers mind at this point in time.

Resistance

Resistance | Resistance Holocaust | Scoop.it

A real-life Suite Française, this riveting diary by a key female member of the French Resistance in WWII is translated int...

SUMMARY:     Resistance takes place in France and Germany during the Holocaust. It is the diary of a young woman, Agnes, who was involved in the resistance of the Nazis in France and was sent to prison. She encountered so much throughout the book, from being transferred to Germany, to learning of the deaths of her friends. Agnes had to go through things most people couldnt even imagine. She stayed strong in the entire book and always stood up for her freedom. She even met people in prison that she never thought shed make bonds with. While in prison, she says "The days pass pleasantly enough" (Humbert pg. 87) showing she really is trying her best while in prison. Agnes spent her time thinking positive thoughts instead of thinking of everything that was going wrong. This was the only way she was able to stay sane, and survive the terrible times that she had.
THEME:     The theme in this book is mostly about strength. Agnes stood up for what she believed and she followed it through, no matter the consequence. She had to go through things that most people wouldnt even dream were real. Agnes fought every single day of her life to survive, and to avoid being tortured more than she needed. The theme shows through with this because of how hard she struggled, yet came out strong in the end. She faught every single day throughout the Holocaust and never failed to stand tall and stay strong.
REVIEW:     I really enjoyed this book. Even though it takes place in a very sad and corrupt time, the author really gets through to the reader. People can see and feel the heartbreak, the terror, and the struggle that the characters go through. Readers even learn about a piece of history that occured years and years ago. You are able to see the struggle, the hardship, the pain, and also the strength of the main character. It shows a time when people were out of their minds, yet some seemed to stay so strong. It was a powerful book and i would highly reccommend it to other readers.

World History In Context
Mary's insight:

SUMMARY:     This website deals with the issues of the Holocaust. Showing us readers how hard things were and how terrible the Nazis could be. It begins by teaching us readers that it wasnt only the Jews that were attacked, "Yet the Nazis targeted many other groups too" (Cooper). It tells us about how people were captured if they were thought to be handicapped in any way or even if they were homosexual. Hitler began this genocide with the Jews the priority instead of everyone else. They were taking people into custody left and right, no matter if they were innocent or not. Sending people to death camps, and prisons to be tortured and even killed. It shows us how people were treated so terribly no matter what. There was no innocent people according to the Nazis. Basically this website shows how hard it was for anyone to escape the wrath of the genocide.
CONNECT:     This connects to my book "Resistance" because of the genocide references. In the book, she was french and was captured. The article talks about people being taken away even if they werent Jewish. That is exactly what happend to the main character. "Come with us, it will not take very long" (Humbert 47) shows that the police were just taking people in with them, no matter what. They then took her to a prison and instead of it being a short trip, she was there for months. The conditions were terrible, moldy walls,  as described in the website, and she was miserable. All the innocent people that were takin in, were treated so poorly that most even died. It demonstrates how horrible conditions were back then and how even the innocent couldnt escape. Both the book and this website show us readers how hard times were. Whether you you were innocent, Jewish, or even handicapped, you had no way out.

Mary's insight:

This is a book that is just like "Resistance". It is a diary, with many enteries, a young girl wrote during the Holocaust. She was involved in the German side of things and these are her experiences. It is kind of the opposite view points of "Resistance".

Auschwitz: The Nazi and the Final Solution

SUMMARY:     This video shows a lot of grafic details about the concentration camps throughout the Holocaust. There are interview within this video telling us how people were tortured, beaten, and even taken to gas chambers throughout Aushwitz. "Families scratching at the walls, they didnt know what to do, untill the gas takes effect" (Gabbai) this quote is telling us about how people were reacting to being tortured. The entire video is showing us how conditions were. It shows us images of the camp, the biggest one there was, and begins to describe how it was there. Telling us details from how people died, to how children were treated. It proves to us that no matter what, there was no escape. Even the strong were put to work untill they died. If you were elderly or even a child, there was no hope for you. They were immediately sent to the gas chambers to be killed. The video shows us how terrible conditions were and how people were treated at this terrible place.
CONNECT:     This connects to my book because the main character in my book was taken to a camp and a prison run by the Germans. She was forced to live in gross, unhealthy conditions just like in this movie clip. She had to witness some of the terrible conditions of people and these camps. The video clearly shows how heart wrenching it was in those times. People were dying left and right and were un able to provide care for themselves. Through the book you also hear of the awful experiences these people go through. She had even learned that a friend had been taken to Aushwitz. The worst of all the camps. She couldnt even imagine the things that would happen to her friend, but thankfully it wasnt her. She learned of these horror stories through her fellow in-mates. They all were shocked by how people were being treated, and everyone was always scared that they would be next.
