Journal #3 - Essential Question

Essential Question:

What role does war play in creating and destroying national identities?

Abernoth states: “Don’t bother. You passed Kuefer’s test,

good, I respect that. You are survivors. But I am not a stupid

man. One of you is a Jew posing as a Gentile; one is a girl

rangers and the esteemed Obersturmfuhrer Kuefer, all these

ruses have succeeded.” – Excerpt from City of Thieves, page 221
