Who am I and how does that relate to my capstone? #rayray

Who am I?

  1. I am the kind of person who, after reading a book, will start to think like the 3rd person narrator of my own life and of the things happening around me.
  2. I too-often find myself thinking about what should I do later rather than what am I doing now.
  3. I am someone who will cry if someone else is upset.
  4. (In that same vein) I am sensitive, oftentimes to a fault.
  5. I am someone who is always looking for something to look forward to.
  6. I am a lay-on-the-beach vacation person, though sometimes I am an adventure vacation person or a city vacation person. Basically, I love vacations.
  7. I am a competitive person, but most people wouldn’t know that.

What resources am I using for my project?

(note to readers: I am doing my project as an integrated approach to the Holocaust through the lens of my grandparents’ stories (who are survivors) and how the media/pop culture has portrayed it since the 1950s…)

  1. Comic representations of Hitler from US and Britain during/post WWII
  2. The Stranger (Orson Wells, 1946)
  3. The Diary of Anne Frank
  4. “Eli The Fanatic” (1959)
  5. “The Jewbird” (Malamud, 1963)
  6. Marathon Men (1976)
  7. Saul Bellow’s work (1972)
  8. Sophie’s Choice
  9. Philip Roth (Ghost Writer, 1979)
  10. Night (1982)
  11. Schindler’s List (1990s…)
