"Truth can be stranger than fiction"
Eleanor Ayer, because she probably wanted to show how the truth can be much stranger than fiction. The importance is that knowing that the Holocaust is real, it happened, and can happen is much more disturbing than knowing it is fake and there hasn't been a person that bad or that much hate in a person or race.
"Your child belongs to me already"
Shirach, because Hitler passed a law saying that all children have to join the Hitler Youth and once you do that child is on Hitler's control know.
"I'm warning you Heck, the Gestapo is more dangerous is more dangerous than the Americans!"
Bannfuhrer, because he probably wants him to know that if the Gestapo gets angry than they can do whatever they want, they have no rules. But the Americans do have rules so they can only do so much.
Peace is our dearest treasure
Hitler, because he is talking about peace but he is doing the opposite, starting a war.
"I grieved much more for my dog, Prinz, and my gentle horse, Feliz. They were innocent little victims: after all they had never pledged an oath to the Fuhrer."
Alfons, because he cares more deeply about animals than humans. He called the animals innocent - much like the Jews who were also getting deported to concentration camps to die, they were also innocent.
Explain the "Journey to Heaven."
Jews felt there was no way out of the concentration camps except through the chimney. Jews
were cremated and the ashes would rise up through the chimney as smoke.
What major countries were members of the Axis powers? Allied powers?
Axis- Germany, Italy, and Japan
Allied- U.S., Britain, France, and Russia
How did Alfons progress so high in the ranks of the Hitler Youth so fast?
Alfons's leaders thought he could get his unit out of tough situations. Also, before one of
Alfons's leaders died, he made Alfons a high ranking officer in the Hitler Youth. The leaders
also knew Alfons was all they really had left to choose from.
Compare and contrast the conditions at Kratzau and Auschwitz.
Kratzau- had no crematoria (where bodies were burned), was a labor camp, weather was cold
Auschwitz- "death camp," weather was cold, bodies were sent to the crematoria to be burned
Why did Alfons go back to Nuremberg after the war?
Alfons wanted to see the high ranking leaders in the Nazi army on trial for the crimes they
committed during the war.
How were the refugees (displaced persons) perceptions of America different than the
reality of being there?
Refugees thought they would be free from people hating them but that was not the case. Some
people were angry at the Jews for being in America in the first place. Refugees also thought
coming to America was a place full of opportunity but when they got there it was difficult to find
a place to live and a decent job.
Why didn't the Jews just leave Europe when things started to look bleak?
Some Jews simply refused to believe that the conditions for the Jews would not get any worse.
They thought that if they were patient, their condition would improve.
How many Jews died in concentration camps during the war?
6 million Jews died during the Holocaust
What did Helen and Alfons hope to teach the world by speaking together in public?
The Holocaust did happen, we must know how it happened, why it happened, and realize that
it could happen again.
What did people think of them when they first started out?
People did not like them at first. Jews were mean and rude to Alfons. Some wouldn't shake his
hand or look him in his eyes. He also received death threats from fellow neo-Nazis and
skinheads. Jews were also mean to Helen for being too understanding of Alfons.
What did Alfons aspire to do but never got the opportunity?
Alfons desperately wanted to be a pilot in the German Air Force (Luftwaffe)
