A common theme that is recurring endlessly is the theme of family, and how unity is necessity in times of despair. It can be said that the immigrants as a whole are all in part of one big family. They all are in pursuit of happiness. Every one of those immigrants knows exactly what the other one is going through, creating a bond that can't be described in words. Just as when Ma Joad gave a hungry child food, in which she herself, was struggling to provide for her family. This theme can be seen throughout the world from tribal families in far remotes, to families developed within the walls of a state reformatory. All share a common bond. Instances within history can be traced back to World War II when Jews where locked up and robbed of all human rights. The bond those prisoners share can never be expressed through words.
A group known as the Special Interrogation group (SIG) was founded in Britain. This group was developed by volunteer Jews, whose mission was to save fellow Jews and sabotage missions of the Axis force. Yet again we see the power of unity and "family" between the volunteer soldiers and the Jews they are risking life and limb to save. This is all part of that bond that cannot be described through words. The bond of brotherhood, the bond of friendship, the bond of “family”.
