  • Chapter 6: Falling in Love
  • Daniel and his family receive a package in the mail from Dachau. When they open it Daniel and his younger cousins are confused that it only contains ashes. Then he understands: Uncle Peter is dead and the Nazis have sent them this. The whole family is devastated and Daniel can no longer imagine a future. His mother continues to try to find a way for their family to leave the country.
  • They dying in his family starts; first his cousin, then an uncle.   Notices for deportation arrive and they say good-bye to more family members. Oma Rachel gets sick and goes to the hospital, but then the hospital is evacuated. Daniel can't find Oma. He sees old people trying to run, babies being thrown out of windows and everywhere people screaming and crying. Even though Oma has escaped, the Nazis come for her the next day.
  • He attends a youth meeting with Erika and Friedrich where they meet several other young people and discuss what they can do to keep the ghetto from falling into chaos. Part of their discussion revolves around the central principle of hope. Rosa gets angry and says that hope is for the enemy, and they should fight, instead. If they die, at least they die with pride. Daniel tries to argue, but is once again embarrassed. He realizes he is falling in love.
