Intelligent " I projected a shadow show about a sheriff in the American Wild West who had to protect his town form the bandits." Yanek built his very own slide projector.
Wieliczka Salt Mine
Determined "I would not give up. I would not turn myself in. No matter what the Nazis did to me, no matter what they took from me, I would survive." Yanek wouldnt stop fighting until the end.
Trzebinia Concentration Camp
Needy "I had to be no one, with no name, no personality, and no family of friends to care about. But i did care. Uncle Moshe was the last of my family." Yanek had no one, he's lost everything and everyone.
Why did he have to die!!! I have no one now.
Miserable "They stayed still though, frozen in salt. As trapped and helpless as we were," Yanek was a fighter but miserable.
Careful "The hangman kicked the chair out from under him, and the boy's body jerked as his neck was broken. I kept my head held high and watched, vowing never to forget." Yanek wouldn't fight back because it he did the consequence was DEATH!
