Up to six million Jews, seven million soviet civilians, and around three million soviet prisoners were killed in the concentration camps according to the encyclopedia of the holocaust. That is still not all of the people that died in the camps. The main character in the book time travels back into the concentration camps to fight for her life. In the movie and the book there is similarities in the allusion, the characters and the conflicts. There is differences in the characters and the scenes, and there is also similarities in the themes. 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 many of the same people like Turtle, Angela, Grace, Hoo, Otis Amber, and Berthe Erica Crow. Also the money is both in the 2’s of millions like 20 and 200. Mr. Hoo still owns a Chinese restaurant that does very poorly. Also Berthe Erica Crow is still partnered with Otis Amber, and they still own the Good Salvation Soup Kitchen. As always Turtle still wins the Westing Game. That’s just a small list of what the similarities are between the book and movie.
Wizard of Oz and Wicked. Two very different stories both sharing the same characters and setting. The two plots are so masterfully intertwined, but showing two very different points of view. Although they share so many similarities, relationships and conflicts between the two are very different. Glinda maybe isn’t so good after all, Elphaba was just trying to do what was right, and the Wizard was the real villain all along. To truly see things as they really are, both sides of a story must be acknowledged and understood, or else someone else’s story will be lost.
The book, written by L. Frank Baum in 1900, was the inspiration behind the movie the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The problem, though, is that the movie does not follow the book at all. Most of the movie plays off the ideas and characters in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, while following a general plot of Dorothy’s quest to the Emerald City. The biggest, and most important difference between the book The Wizard of OZ and the movie edition is that in the movie, Dorothy is simply dreaming, and in the other, she was carried to the land of OZ because of the tornado that swept through Kansas. The Wizard of Oz the movie portrays the story as a dream that Dorothy is having, with people in her life showing up as characters in the dream. This is a clever twist on the story plot, and it provides a little more entertainment, for the viewer, than the first chapter of the book, which gives a dull description of the Kansas prairie.
One difference was that Gitl and Rivka were two different characters in the book, but in the movie, they were just one character. In the book, Gitl was Hannah’s aunt who took care of her after Hannah’s parents died. Another difference was that in the movie, Shmuel and Fayge actually get married, since the rabbi was telling them to rush, but in the book, the two never actually have time to get married before the Nazis take them away in their cars. A third difference was that in the movie, Ariel is the son of the rabbi, the love interest with Hannah, but in the book, Fayge is the daughter of the rabbi, the love interest of Shmuel. A fourth difference was that in the movie, Hannah was an older teen, and more rebellious.
Only about 3,546,211 people survived the Holocaust. Adolf Hitler was the main leader of the Holocaust, he did this because of his discrimination of Jews. There were more than just Jews killed, there were gay people, priests, gypsies, people with mental or physical disabilities, communists, trade unionists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, anarchists, Poles and other Slavic peoples, and resistance fighters. The Holocaust happened between 1933 through 1945 in Germany and Poland. Night, is an autobiography written by Elie Wisel who was involved in the Holocaust. Auschwitz Death Camp, it is a video documentary of the death camp including Elie Wisel and Oprah Winfrey. The truth about the Holocaust to me is horrendous, all the torturing they had to go through
The Wizard of Oz, written by L. Frank Baum was published on May 17, 1900, and the original movie was made in 1939 (produced by Mervyn LeRoy). Both the book and movie are similar. The story is about a little girl named Dorothy who is carried away from home by a cyclone. She ends up in the land of the Munchkins where she meets little people and a witch. Once she meets the witch she is told that in order for her to get back home she has to go to the Emerald City to speak to Oz. On her journey to Oz she meets three characters: the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion. These three characters also want something from Oz. The Scarecrow wants a brain, the Tin Man wants a heart, and the Cowardly Lion wants courage. Although the book and the
To Begin, on the story Night many themes were developed like “inhumanity” and “guilt and inaction”. Inhumanity was the major one in both the movie and the novel because of the horrible things each of the characters experiences while in the concentration camp and even outside of it. For example, while Elie was in the concentration camp he experienced things like starvation and horrible beatings. He was on the level of extreme mistreatment. This especially shown when Elie was forced to go on a death march and says, “Cursed and prodded by the SS and whipped by the wind, the prisoners march. The guards yell at them to go faster and they begin to run. They hear explosions from time to time: the SS have orders to shoot anyone who can't keep up the pace.” This is similar to the movie because while Bruno was in the camp
Together, both characters in the two novels change after knowing how life really is, the process and way they turned out are still different. Now that we have learned all of this stuff and turned up into a compare and contrast, it will be easier to sum it up. First, we learn that Hannah and Cole both had the motive to help people after making mistakes, Next we learned that Hannah tried to stay quiet and not get in trouble, while Cole never cared and nothing mattered to him. These are the similarities and differences in the two novels. Hopefully now you should be able to compare and contrast two
The similarities are quite apparent, the movie plot mainly follows the basic plot that the book took, leaving the viewer’s with a sense of accomplishment, as this is sometimes not achieved in the highest degree. Scout still has a brother, Jem. They both still meet Dill and have a few adventures with him throughout the film. Jem and Scout still have a single father, Atticus, having lost their mother many years ago. Calpunia is still their cook. And the whole story still has an
More than 10 million people were killed in concentration camps. Night, by Elie Wiesel, gives us a vivid picture of the horrors of these camps. Likewise, in The Giver by Lois Lowry, many people were released, or killed, which is equally as terrible. Both books are similar in many ways. Lowry and Wiesel use the evils of society, sadness, and fear of death to show how similar the two main characters, Jonas and Elie, are.
The Wizard of Oz has been a popular and symbolic film throughout our previous history. Both the book and movie have been recognised as classic literature for children and adults alike. Although they share the same concept, there are a few important differences between the novel and the film.
Here are some differences with the characters. Meg one of the main character's in the book has glasses and braces, but in the movie she doesn't have braces or glasses. Another main character is Charles-Walace and in the book he is five, doesn't go to school, and can't read, but in the movie he is six go's to school, and can read well. These are the differences
I decided to compare the novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to the movie version of the novel. One of the main differences between the novel and the movie that I found interesting was about how Dorothy arrived to the land of Oz. In the novel, Dorothy actually traveled to the land of Oz whereas in the movie, it was only just a dream that she eventually woke up from in the end. This big change contributes to how we interpret the text because it provides a twist on the plot by leading readers of the novel to believe that the adventure that Dorothy goes on is real and that everything she went through was real. Readers can tell that this is not just an adventure that Dorothy made up in her head overnight, but it is actually a real place and this gives a sense of reality to the readers of the text. It makes the story more real and lets the reader expand their thoughts and maybe put themselves in the shoes of Dorothy to see what they would do in this type of situation. Another one of the differences I found was that in the movie, violence is not something that is shown to an extent or even really added into the plot. In the novel, however, violence is something that was much more relevant and part of the plot. For example, in the novel the Witch sends her servants after Dorothy and her friends along with wolves and crows. Violence is portrayed during this because the Tinman cuts all of the wolves’ heads off and the Scarecrow strangled all of the crows to death. This affects how readers interpret the text because violence is something that is usually watered down, like in the movie, but adding it to the text gives the reader more of an idea of what is truly going on in the story. It makes the story more complex and dense by adding in specific details of the violence that was going on.
The adaptation of the text, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum that I watched was the movie “The Wizard of Oz” filmed in 1939. The three components that were different were the way it ended, the violence included, and why the characters were lacking. In the book the way it ends makes the audience think that OZ is a real place that does exist. There were books that came after this book which involved Dorothy living in the land of Oz. However, in the movie Dorothy wakes up from a nap at the end; indicating the whole experience was a dream. Another difference was that the movie didn’t describe how each character became how they were. The book describes how the Scarecrow was made because the munchkin forgot to give him a brain. The Tinman doesn’t have a heart because he was made up by a tinsmith after getting cut up, but forgot to be made with a heart. The lion was just born to be cowardly. The last difference is there was much more violence described in the book than in the movie. In the book it was explained that the tinman was cut to pieces by an axe and that is why he is now made out of tin.
There always seems to be some discrepancy when a film is adapted into a movie. Often times, crucial scenes, or even characters, can be left out in order to satisfy the directors’ and screen writers’ visions. Unfortunately, such changes can clearly be seen in the film adaptation of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. The movie leaves out characters such as the Witch of the North and the queen of the field mice, but adds characters such as Professor Marvel and Miss Gulch. However, while many changes were made, there are still a few instances where this “fairy tale” novel almost directly translates into the film. One scene in particular that is closely mirrored to the novel is when Dorothy first meets the scarecrow. This scene is nearly an exact word for word adaptation including dialogue, vivid visual images for the viewer, and how point of view directs the attention of the audience.
