This storyboard does not have a description.
Moishe the Beadle sees Eliezer crying while praying at the synagogue, and they have a kind of connection. They end up talking most evenings at the synagogue. "He [Moishe] told me what had happened to him and his companions. The train with the deportees had crossed the Hungarian border and, once in Polish territory, had been taken over by the Gestapo"
In the middle of the night, a woman, Mrs. Schächter, begins to moan, cry, and scream because she has been separated from her husband. At last, she begins to scream that she sees fire, a terrible fire. "Fire! I see a fire! I see a fire" pg. 24
Eliezer’s one thought is not to lose his father. A kind prisoner comes up to Eliezer and his father, asking them their ages. On hearing that Eliezer is 15 and his father is 50, the prisoner tells them they should be 18 and 40. Age can mean the difference between life and death. "Not fifty. You're forty. Do you hear. Forty and Eighteen" pg. 30
Eliezer and his dad are assigned to work in a warehouse for electrical equipment. Idek is their "Kapo," or work leader. They learn that Idek is a little crazy and it’s best to stay out of his way.The work isn’t bad, it’s just counting pieces of electrical equipment. There are even civilians working there—Polish people and some French women. " We counted bolts, bulbs, and various small electrical parts" pg. 50
In January, Eliezer’s foot begins to swell. It’s so swollen, he goes to the doctor—a Jewish doctor and a prisoner—who tells Eliezer that he needs an operation or his foot will have to be amputated. So Eliezer enters the hospital. "Around the middle of January, my right foot began to swell from the cold." pg. 78
The road seems endless, but finally (after many hours) they are at last ordered to rest. ""Faster, you filthy dogs!" We were no longer marching, we were running. Like automatons." pg. 85
