Prisoners were not meant to survive, as they were starving, malnourished, and tortured by the guards. Some inmates ate rats, insects, ferns, wild berries, and mushrooms, which could have had them severely punished if they were caught. Shin was not an exception to the other prisoners, and ate whatever he could, whenever he could. In addition to the wild plants and animals Shin ate, he also stole his mother’s lunch which resulted in her beating him (but he still continuously did it). “Catching and roasting rats became a passion for Shin… Shin peeled away their skin, scraped away their innards, salted what was left, and chewed the rest– flesh, bones, and tiny feet,” (21).

After spending several weeks conducting undercover research on his subject matter, Sinclair threw himself into the manuscript that would become The Jungle. Initially rejected by publishers, in 1906 the novel was finally released by Doubleday to great public acclaim—and shock.

Upon its release, Sinclair enlisted his fellow writer and friend Jack London to help publicize his book and assist in getting his message across to the masses.

Many were also shot and killed as they entered the camps based on their strength and how fit they looked. Germans looked for strong men who could last a long time doing hard work. As the prisoners would travel from camp to camp on carts, many would end up dead from either starvation, body temperature, or both. The Germans would leave the dead bodies lying around for days upon days eventually they were picked up and put into the oven to burn. Many people living in the camps not only saw death everywhere they also could smell death in the air from all the ashes and smoke coming from the ovens.

Hawthorne, although not entirely interested in higher education, enrolled at Bowdoin College in 1821.
