Readers Journal-17

I’m reading The Berlin Boxing Club. This book takes place in Berlin. Karl is starting to notice that people aren’t being so nice to him. he finds out because he is Jewish. One day Karl is walking around his school and he see’s these three big guys. Karl tries to walk away but they start to mess with him. Karl isn’t a good fighter he is skinny and tall. The narrator tells us  “The word ‘fight’ stung my ears almost as badly as the word ‘Jew'” (pg. 10).  Another really important element is the year 1934, this year is important because it is right before World War II started.  In this time period, Hitler was scapegoated the Jews. Karl gets beat up by these three kids because he’s Jewish and he will never forget it.
