When the Purple Mountain Burns
Back In the mid 1930’s, there was a massacre where the Japanese came and Killed 300,000 people who lived in china. This was a genocide (that seemed)→ which seems? that a lot of people had forgotten about. Shouhua Qi decided to write this book called (the)→don’t need “When the Purple Mountain Burns.” This book takes place in Nanking and Shouhua Qi writes about people who were trying to stay sane and not become insane during these trying times.

These two go through similar situations of trying to help others and also to realize that their homes are going to get destroyed. They are both females that are still in the danger zone of the war. Even though they are both females the ages are different. Ning-Ning is a little girl and Helen is much more older and is (on)→in college.

Women are considered as a nurse or some type of (aid)→aide, or just weak and innocent people, easy to prey upon and kill. In the book the general was this sick man who likes to have sexual desires for (all)→any kind of women (of)→in all ages. What I’m trying to say is that during times like that, it doesn’t matter who you are or (who)→where you came from, you are in danger of being possibly killed and raped. On the positive side, Ning-Ning and Helen are both very strong hearted people where they don’t want to leave no one behind.
Now the age difference between Ning-Ning and Helen are in two different age groups. Ning-Ning is this young girl who knows what’s going on with the war but not too sure about it. She is yet still a (baby and she)→child, but is caring...
