1918 - 1933

Adolf Hitler was born in Austria but moved to Germany to fight for them in WWI . When Germany signed the surrender in 1918, Hitler was in hospital and it angered him greatly. He, like many other Germans disagreed and called the politicians who signed it the November Criminals.
Germany then was run by a new government called the Weimer Republic. It was very unpopular with the people. Meanwhile, Hitler became leader of the Nazi party. He disagreed with the way the governmentt were running the country so he planned a revolution. This was known as the Munich Putsch. He failed though and he was jailed for 5 months. While in jail, he wrote a book with all his beliefs called Mein Kampf. Some of his beliefs were:
He hated Jews, and blamed them for all Germany’s problems
He dispised communism also
Germany needed lebensraum (living space)
He believed a group of humans were superior, known as the Aryan race
In 1929, the Wall St. Crash caused huge problems all over the world. In Germany, unemployment rose from 1,000,000 in 1929 to 6,000,000 in 1932. This put huge pressure on the government and led to lots of people hating them.
All the time, Hitler’s Nazi party were growing and by 1933 were the biggest party in Germany. Eventually, in 1933, Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. This was the equvilant of being Prime Minister.
He could now go about implementing his policies in Germany:
Break up the Treaty of Versailles
Cleanse the nation of inferior people like the Jewish
Improve the economy
Hitler also began to use propaganda to make people believe his ideas.

Not too much his early life really

Across The Barricades

The novel has an interesting opening. Sadie meets up with Kevin after 3 years. They go for coffee and catch up on the latest news. However, it is not simply a case of 2 old friends meeting up for a chat. Sadie and Kevin live in war torn Belfast and are from opposite ends of the religious divide. Prtestant and Catholic.
Hints of the conflict are given in the first chapter, description of “burnt cars, buses and armoured vehicles”. Tension on the streets. Our curiosity is arisen because we the readers want to see, if it will get any worse, or if it will affect the lives of Sadie and Kevin.
Also, in the opening chapter, Kevin and Sadie decide to renew their friendship, there is even a hint of romance. The reader is in SUSPENCE, it is a dangerous relationship, because of their different backgrounds.
“They were embarking on something dangerous” The reader wants to go on, and find out what happens next, and how the relationship will work out.

Novel Ending:
After all the trouble, conflicts, Kevin decides to leave Belfast.
I’ve got to go away, I can’t stay here any longer, I’m sick of bombs
The reader welcomes his decision, because we feel sorry for him, after all that has happened.
The ending of the novel is emotional/upsetting in one way, as we see him ‘say farewell’ to all of his family. We wonder will we see them again.
Brede meets him, and again it is sad to see her saying goodbye to him.
Well, Kevin, I’ll miss you

The ending works well also, because the final strands of the plot are tied up. Kate Kelly turns up and tells Kevin that “she was sorry”. She admits that she “made a mistake about the box” (of ammunition). Kate reveals that it was Brian Rafferty; who forced her to lie about the box.
I wouldn’t have told the lie otherwise
Once more, we the readers, see how horrible Rafferty was and we are happy that Kevin is getting away from him at last.
It was all of it behind him now, Kate and Brian Rafferty and the beatings up and the bombs

The reader is happily surprised again, on the final page of the novel, when Sadie turns up at the docks. It’s very exciting when she reveals that she is going with Kevin. He isa pleasantly surprised aswell.
That’s the best news I had in months

Although the novel contained much suffering, pain and conflict, it has a happy ending. Kevin and Sadie walk hand in hand, to the “while waiting ship”. We feel that they have the chance of a new, trouble-free life, in England.

Okay here is some geography notes on population

Demography is the sudy of population.

1 Population density
this is the number of people per square kilometer. It is an average figure.

2 Population distribution
This is the way that population is spread out accross the land. It can be evenly or unevenly spread. e.g the population in Ireland is uneven, the west have few people and dublin has a very high population.

3 Population Patterns
The are the order or shape the population makes. There are three basic patterns.
(a) nucleated or clustered.
This is where people live in one area e.g towns are a nucleated settlement.

(b) Linear or ribboned
This is where people live in a line along the side of a road or a river e.g. the river Rhine has lead a linear pattern of cities along its banks.

(c) Dispersed
This is tipical of rural farming areas where people are spread over a wide area e.g. Rural Leitrim

How does the population grow?
More babies born than people dieing causes the population to grow it is called natural change.

what effects the total population in an area?
This changes the distribution of world population. Mirgration causes an increase of population in countries where people go to. e.g Ireland. However Migration does not effect world population

What is birth rate?

This is when we count live births per thousand per year. So if there were 20 births per thousand people it would be 2% (20/1000 = 2/100 = 2%)

What is death rate?
It is counting the number of deaths per thousand per year. e.g 10 deaths per thousand (10/1000 = 1/100 = 1%)

How do I get natural change?
I subtract the deaths from the births. If there are more births we have a natural increase but if there are more deaths we have a natural decrease.

Population growth

Population Growth is not the same throughout the world. First world countries like Germany and France have negative growth were as third world countries like India and Brazil have a Population explosion.

Why are there large pupulation in the worlds poorest counties?
Modern Medicine like vaccinations have helped lower the death rate
Clean Water By sinking a well in a village which provides clean water can have a dramatic effect on the death rate. The biggest killer of babies in the third world today is dehydration from diarrhoea.

What are the stages of Population growth?
This is the predictable changes that the population of a country will go through:
1 High stationary stage
Birth and death rates are high little change in population. Third world.
2 Early expanding stage
Birth rate remains high and the death rate falls rapidly. Developing world.Population explosion occurs here.
3 Late expanding stage
The death rate remains low. Birth rate falls rapidly, population growth begins to slow down.
4 Low stationary stage
The birth rate remains low, death rate is still very low, low population growth.
5 Senile stage
Birth rate falls below death rate. Population decrease. e.g. Germany

(sorry couldn't find graph with senile stage)

I have some more notes to do with why some areas have high or low population that i can get for you but that is most of my population growth.

Just a few notes our teacher gave us for unseen poetry and prose. She said we can have answers actually prepared before we go in, even if we can't understand the poem. For example, if a question says "Do you like this poem? Why/why not?" You can have an answer prepared saying you like the poets style/use of personification/metaphors etc.
