Status Name Score Questions on Borowski Completed 10 out of 10 points Instructions Answer each question in one or more well thought out paragraphs (Blackboard doesn't show paragraphs, unfortunately, which is not a big concern, but you can write "New Paragraph" between yours if you wish). Minimum word count is 100 words per question. Most scores less than full credit reflect lack of development or sloppy, dashed off in a hurry answers. Question 1 Why do you think the author wrote this story? Explain your answer. Selected Answer: To me, it comes across as a bitter and heartfelt apology. It explains what happened and why he did what he did because he had to. It shows that he is not without remorse. His later suicide underlines that theory. It also seems to be for the purpose of warning others what human nature is like. He is trying to prevent Auschwitz from happening again. Although words are virtually inert, he is using shocking and realistic images to try to instill some horror in his readers human at nature, trying to make them swear they will never do the things he has done, or that the Germans did. 5 out of 5 points Question 2 5 out of 5 points Is the ghastly content of this story a suitable subject for a work of art? Why or why not? Selected Answer: The shocking is always an appropriate subject for art. It removes one from their safety zone and therefore provokes thought. It is true that being gross just for the sake of shocking someone is not necessarily art (Damien Hirst comes to mind, a man who puts dead animals into galleries) but if the purpose is self-expression or the creation of an awareness of certain issues, it could be considered art. For example, the artist Michael Ray Charles creates racist images, but it is to create awareness of racism rather than to simply be shocking for the sake of being shocking. I think that Into the Gas Chamber, Ladies and Gentlemen serves to apologize, educate, and perhaps even to warn. The things it uses to do those should not be questioned.
