Elli and her mother arrive at the ghetto to be greeted by her brother, father, and Aunt Serena who are by a large pile of the Jewish peoples stuff.
That's the sofa from our salon!
The Jewish people inside of the ghetto have adjusted to their lives and live in a whole community with open bathrooms, baths, and people cooking meals for others.
Elli's old schoolmate Marta, and her mother, Mrs. Kalman have brought Elli and her family a goose, eggs, and a sack of flour to help them get through life in the ghetto.
We brought you some things.
The men in the ghetto were to be transported at night, and Elli wanted to be able to say goodbye to her dad. However, she was never woken up and is now distraught because of it.
After deciding to keep her poem notebook hidden, Elli believes that all is good now. However, the Hungarian soldiers burn the books, scrolls, pictures, etc.
God, forgive our sins!
My poems are safe
Please, Serena, stop this.
Aunt Serena is hysterical at the thought of leaving home and giving away her possessions. She begins a fit such as china, bowls, glass and even tears a pillow apart before Elli and her mother step in.
