There were no other religions that I was familiar with other than the one I grew up with. I had no cultural experiences, Then to be thrown from a white Christian Community into a literal Melting Pot of people from all over, people that spoke all kinds of languages, and all different races. I had to step up and become more open-minded and be willing to open the door to that there is more out there than what I was just accustomed to. Martin shows his determination to not only survive but I have a determination to survive freely, this is shown on page 118 when he and his ' Brotherhood' decide that they want to join the Army and fight for Israel's freedom. After going through everything that they had to endure with a holocaust and then choosing to go and fight again for something that they believe in shows a very strong mentality that these boys had to have had. The main reason I came to Florida was to continue to be with my parents. It was a fresh start literally with having no one I knew, not knowing entirely what I was getting myself into. Just like Martin moving to Palestine with not knowing anybody but the people that he had survived the Holocaust with. working towards a bigger and better life for themselves and that's what I'm trying to do here in Florida. After reading this book it added more "fuel to my fire." I know where I want to be in life and what I would like to accomplish and this book helps show that no matter how bad things get as long as you have the determination and the will to accomplish things, you can.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
