One of the things people hate is to compare movies to books because they are too different from each other, or too similar and boring. Sometimes they are both too alike, and too different. The Devil's arithmetic is a great example when it comes to show the differences and similarities of a book, and a movie. If we didn't compare them then it would be easy to mix both of them up on what happened in the movie, and what happened in the book.
Finally there are lots of differences between the book and the movie. They also show that the movie was a lot weaker then then the book. I can see the movies aren't always better than the books. The books go more into detail than the movie. I enjoined the movie because it is more visual. The book was a little

In “The Devil’s Arithmetic,” book and movie, there are many similarities including the same allusion of “The Wizard of Oz,” Hannah is similar, they have man vs. society, and man vs. self. “The Wizard of Oz,” is an allusion meaning it was mentioned in the book.

She hates Jewish history towards the beginning, and respects it in the end. Another similarity is the conflict of man vs. society. Man vs. society is shown as it is the Jews vs. the Nazis society.

To start off, in The Devil's Arithmetic by Jane Yolen (historical fiction), the author writes the novel in historical fiction. The first technique she used was foreshadowing. On page 8, Hannah says, “Across the screen marched old photos of concentration camps,” After this quote, Hannah then goes on to explain that the pictures are Jews in concentration camps and Nazis mistreating Jews. Jane Yolen included this in the book to introduce the theme and central idea to the reader. This quote shows the beginning of the reader realizing that the Holocaust had a negative impact on everyone who was in it, which is the theme, because of the way the picture of the camps were described in the pictures. To add, Hannah shows a little bit of sympathy for the people that were being mistreated introducing the theme of people should be treated equally. To add, the
The Devil’s Arithmetic is a book that shows the fear and horror of life in a camp during the holocaust. The main character Hannah, or Chaya as she is commonly known through the book, is a young thirteen year old girl who doesn’t want to remember anything about the holocaust. She is mysteriously transported to the past and learns about the true pain and horrors the people in the camps went through.
The devil's arithmetic book by Jane Yolen and the movie by Dustin Hoffman are very similar to each other. They both tell the story of a young girl who is transported through time to the 1940’s to learn what it’s like to live through the era of the holocaust after she ignores her family heritage. She then dies in that time at the hands of the Nazis and learns why she must remember and tell the future generation about the holocaust. These stories are the same but told in different ways and in different forms.
Despite the differences of the book and movie there is also some similarities. The allision demonstrated between the two was one of the similarities. They both show Hannah traveling in time and waking up back into her original time just like the main character in the Wizard of Oz. The characters Hannah and Schmuel both stay the same. Hannah is the main character in both the movie and the book and Schmuel get married in both. Another thing that they have in common is the conflicts. Hannah goes through man verses society when she is fighting against the Nazis. She has to fight them for food, fight them for survival, and fight them for the safety of her friends. The Nazis are slowly taking away those things from her. She is also goes through man versus self. She knows all of the bad things that are going to happen and no one will believe that she is right, so she starts to second guess herself. She also thinks that they are the monsters so
There are very few similarities between the book and the movie of the Devil's arithmetic. Both the movie and the book is a allusion of the Wizard of Oz. In the movie The Wizard of Oz dorothy wakes up from her dream just like Hannah wakes up for the horrific dream of her being in the concentration camp. Another Similarity in the in the book and the movie in the Devil's Arithmetic is Hannah. Hannah was a consistent character throughout the movie and book. In both the book and the movie the conflict was the same. The confixt was man vs society because their were the Jews against the Nazi. The last similarity was the internal conflict. This means that Hannah was going against her internal self, because in the when Hannah and Rivka were sitting on the bunk beds, Hannah said that she could not do this and she thought it would be easier if she was dead.
There are other significant similarities between the movie and the book, so if I overlooked or forgot any extremely crucial points, forgive me.
The Devil’s Arithmetic teaches us countless lessons throughout both forms of publishing. Each form however has a different lesson and develops them in different ways. The book differentiates from the movie in numerous ways. In both the book and the movie there are many similarities, but there is still diversity. Each form of media develops their individual themes differently because that makes it more apparent for the viewers to understand and absorb.
After watching the film, Ride with the Devil, I had mixed emotion about the story. I thought the young men were hooligans, outlaws, or bandits. I also think some of them were mentally disturbed juvenile delinquents. Moreover, the movie reminded me of the movie, Young Guns. I thought there were similarities between the two movies because the characters were young men.
The book tells the same story as the movie but in a different way it cuts out thing the movies has or the movies adds thing that's not in the book. The book has some not many similar but . I feel the director was unfaithful to the book.The book and movie version of Our America had many differences.
