Is Iceland geographically part of North America?

No. Though it is geographically closer to North America than it is to Europe, Iceland is considered part of Europe. It marks the border between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.

No Not really. Geographically, tectonically, about half of the Icelandic mainland is, indeed on the North American plate but the idea of a continent developed long before anyone heard of tectonic plates. Culturally, ethnically, lingually, politically and historically, Iceland is a European country, despite some differences But no, Iceland is generally always considered part of Europe.

Of the Nordic (~Scandinavian) countries, Iceland has the most American influence, but Icelanders are highly indepentent with their own culture (Icelandic culture isn't American, and hasn't really been affected by foreign influence. ) But no European. Not American.

However, using strict geographical criteria instead of cultural ones, Iceland is indeed part of North America because it is closer to North America than Europe. Culture has no meaning in a geographical context. Is Australia part of Europe because they speak English there?

Of course not. Nearby Canada also has a European culture, but this counts for nothing. Using geographical criteria only, YES, Iceland is part of North America. And so is Jan Mayen Island.

I cant really gove you an answer,but what I can give you is a way to a solution, that is you have to find the anglde that you relate to or peaks your interest. A good paper is one that people get drawn into because it reaches them ln some way.As for me WW11 to me, I think of the holocaust and the effect it had on the survivors, their families and those who stood by and did nothing until it was too late.
