Melodrama in my website and project
Melodrama, as I choose to implement it, takes the form of exaggeration in the name of urgency. Exaggerate the dichotomy between good and evil. Exaggerate the relevance between the issue and the average modern life. Exaggerate the toll this will take on society. Melodrama proves essential to both my website and project because, in the grand scheme of things, the Holocaust pales in comparison to other, more recent and more relevant tragedies. Without this exaggeration, the Holocaust would fade into the pages of history books, as distant and irrelevant to modernity as the Civil War or the Storming of the Bastille.
