Reform or request: Flowers in the Gutter

The book “Flowers in the Gutter” by K. R. Gaddy is a historical book that describes the events that occurred in Germany during the Nazi regime from the perspective of the Edelweiss pirates. The author provides us with a detailed view of how persecuted communities in Germany lived and the changes that were happening around them. The main theme of this book is the fight for freedom by all those who were oppressed by Hitler’s regime. The relationship between the two parties is where the conflict lies within this topic. The Nazis were dominant and had all the power in their society. They held the ultimate authority over everyone else. In addition, they were trying to enforce their beliefs on everyone else. When the Edelweiss Pirates realized this they fought against oppression. Thus the central idea of this book can be acknowledged as “Reform and rebellion against German law” as well as the fight for freedom by all those who were oppressed by Hitler’s regime, including homosexuals and Jews.

Dear Martin -The hidden meaning and what we don’t know

Direct link to video


The author Nic Stone perfectly portrays how important it is to take a stand against racism in order to promote change in our society. She tells the fictional story of an African American teenager named Justyce McAllister who arrested by police due to racial profiling. To cope with his loss, Justyce starts writing letters to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., asking for his advice on how to stop racial profiling in his neighbourhood. These letters are very personal and record important racial events that happen in Justyce’s life.  After reading the book, the task was to find a theme statement that portrayed & summarized the book Dear Martin.  To find the theme statement “What is above controls the below”, I had to use specific literary techniques (STEAL, WOTW etc.) and use evidence within the book. This book is truly eye-opening and shows how much racism effects many people in our society, based on their race or background. It also shows that it is up to us to put an end to the injustice that occurs everyday in this world.
