"What are these transports about? Why don't they want us in Prague?" She doesn't answer. "Mother?"
"Nine hundred fifty-one to one thousand, this car!" he says and points again
"Mendel has developed an excellent technique for the nails, which he can show you. After you clean the bathrooms."
The setting of the story is at the concentration camp, Terezin. The characters of the story are Misha, his mom, and his sister. The story is written in 1st point of view.
"The train, it departed," Mother says. "It's gone."
"We have potatoes. Potatoes."
The conflict of the story is that Misha, his mom, and his sister were deported to the Terezian concentration camp on a train. This is character vs. society.
The rising action of the story is since Franta found dirt under Misha's nails he had to clean the bathroom.
"We're free, Misha," she breathes loudly in my ear. "We're finally free."
The climax of the story is when they were waiting in the room listening to all the screaming Jews, the yelling officers, and the barking of the dogs as the officers were collecting more Jews to put on the train. They were praying to not get picked next.
The falling action is when the train brought back some of the Jews, from Auschwitz, back to the Terezin because the Soviets made the Germans close the prisons down. Misha and Tommy ran back and forth, from the kitchen to the train, to bring them water a potatoes.
The resolution of the story is that the Soviets won and the Jews are free. Misha, his mom, and his sister can leave the camp and go back home.
