For two days, eighty jews were packed together like sardines on train wagons with no food or water. This horrified me on how the Nazis treated them like prisoners guilty of crimes that justified their own actions against the Jews. The three stages of dehumanization, which is mental, physical, and emotional, were represented throughout the memoir. Mental dehumanization was the stage in which saddened me the most.

Ghettos were enclosed districts where Jews lived separately from the world.

But as time went by he decided to give him a chance as time passed by he really developed a strong bond with doodle.

The stale German bread he received helped provide him with energy to keep marching, and ultimately be able to survive.

Every time he gets on a new train it talks about what happened at that concentration camp or wherever he was at. Until at the end he is talking to the cook about what he is doing at that precise time.
