Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

One of the central elements to Immaculee's tale of survival amidst horror is the deep connection she formed with her faith. Analyze in a thoughtful, critical essay, the centrality of faith to Immaculee's story. What does it mean to have faith? What can faith mean to different people? What role does it play in her life? When does it become the most important to her? In what ways does it help her? How does she come to rely upon it? What does it change within her? Why is it significant that the faith of Immaculee is that of Catholic Christianity?

Essay Topic 2

As she, along with several other women, spend months in hiding in the bathroom, Immaculee lives in a sort of constant fear. Examine this fear in a well-organized essay that, using sources from the text, describes the nature of such a constant fear. What effects does it have on the person? How does it alter one's thinking, one's actions, and one's mentality? How does Immaculee in particular react to the constant fear? What are the sources of the fear? What factors contribute to this constant state of fear? When is the fear at its worst? How does such fear change over time?

Essay Topic 3

For Immaculee's survival, as well as the survival of the other seven Tutsi women she shares the bathroom with, no human person can be given more credit than Pastor Murinzi. Yet he is not a perfect person during the genocide. Examine the conflict which tears at the pastor and how he reacts to it, in a thoughtful and insightful analytical essay. What risks does the pastor take on behalf of the women? What risks does he not take? What is significant about the length of the risk he takes? What would have happened to the pastor had he been found out? What would have happened to the pastor had he turned the women away? What is shown about the moral character of the pastor through his actions during the genocide?
