The Holocaust

In 1933 Most European Jews lived in countries that Nazi Germany would occupy or influence during World War II. By 1945, the Germans and their collaborators killed nearly two out of every three European Jews as part of the "Final Solution," the Nazi policy to murder the Jews of Europe. Hitler and the Nazis killed about 6 million in all Jews in the holocaust. Hitler started the holocaust because he wanted to rule all of Germany

The Giver

The Giver begins with Jonas' apprehension about his Ceremony of Twelve, when he will be assigned his lifelong job. He can guess which jobs his friends, Fiona and Asher, will be assigned, but he has no idea what his own job Assignment will be. At the Ceremony, Jonas learns that he has been selected to become the next Receiver of Memory, the highest position in the community.

The Holocaust compared to The Giver

They are the same because they both focus on the imperfections in people because in the holocaust Hitler didn't like the Jews and the Giver because it wants everybody to be the same. They both made people stay inside the "gates or fences" so the people were isolated from anyone else. They both made consequences for when people did bad things or acted up.
