    This essay performs a textual analysis of Marione Ingram's essay “Operation Gomorrah”. The purpose of this analysis is to explore how Ingram constructs her Jewish identity using different literary features. Ingram's “Operation Gomorrah” is a harrowing recollection of a Jewish child's experience during the fire bombing of Hamburg, Germany in 1943,(known as Operation Gomorrah). ...

    Rules were enforced “against sheltering Jews” (127), hence the rejection from the “"basement shelter” (126). Fear outweighed any rationale they had towards housing them in the shelter, instead the neighbours blamed them, for the bombing: “The Bolshevik Jews are behind this! … They sold us out. They told the English where to bomb” (127).
