Writing Prompts - Fredericka Saharovici

Prompt 1

In his 1986 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, Elie Wiesel says: "One person of integrity can make a difference, a difference of life and death. As long as one dissident is in prison, our freedom will not be true. As long as one child is hungry, our life will be filled with anguish and shame. What all these victims need above all is to know that they are not alone; that we are not forgetting them, that when their voices are stifled we shall lend them ours, that while their freedom depends on ours, the quality of our freedom depends on theirs.”  Write an essay that both summarizes and analyzes this quote and Fredericka’s story. Be sure to cite strong and thorough evidence from the video to support your analysis.
