    One of the most horrific persecutions of all time was the Holocaust; the mass murder of six million Jews and millions of other people leading up to, and during, World War II. The killings took place in Europe between 1933 and 1945, and were organized by the German Nazi party which was led by Adolf Hitler. The largest group of victims were Jewish people. Nearly 7 out of every 10 Jews living in Europe were killed; most were killed because they belonged to certain racial or religious groups which the Nazis wanted to wipe out. Many Jews were killed in extermination camps, while others starved to death or died of disease due to horrible living conditions. Hitler and the Nazis believed that their Aryan race, and Germany, was superior to other races and other countries. Very few survivors of the Holocaust are still alive; however, it is important to hear their stories so that such a genocide never occurs again.

    "Doc awakened very slowly and clumsily like a fat man getting out of a swimming pool. His mind broke the surface and fell back several times." -- John Steinbeck, Cannery Row
    1. What is the subject of the verb broke? What does this tell you about Doc's ability to control his thinking at this point in the story?
    2. To what does surface refer? Remember that good writers often strive for complexity rather than simplicity.
