  • right as Barney and Felix are about to go get water Felix narrates, "The street is crowded with people, all trudging in the moonlight, all in the same direction. Jewish people, I can tell by the armbands on their coats." (Gleitzman 123).
  • please don't make us go on the train!
  • you two. exit through that way. quickly.
  • As Felix goes to the kitchen to get water, Felix screams, "Then I realized there was someone else in the room. Oh. Its a little kid, about two, in a high chair. I cant tell if its a girl or a boy because there's too much blood on the little body. Oh. I scream for Barney" (Gleitzman 123).
  • WERE FREE!!!!!
  • no, they have easier ways of killing them from escaping.
  • barney are they going to stop he train to get them?
  • felix are you hurt?
  • As the natis are going to attack Bareny and the kids he's been housing, Felix explains, "I can hear the soldiers shouting ad other dogs barking, inside the printing factory. I can hear kids screaming. It doesn't matter anymore who sees me. I run towards the cellar." (Gleitzman 123).
  • im fine but, zelda! we made it! were free!
  • Felix and Barney showed the natiz officer the photo of Zeldas parents, Felix dedscribes, "The natiz officer looks at the photo for a long time. Then he looks at Zelda and at Barney and at me and at the tent. He points to Zelda and Barney and then points to the railway yard gate."(Gleitzman 150-151).
  • While some people on he train decided to jump out and risk there lifes, Felix translates, "we all freeze, startled, as gunshots echo through the train. lots of gunshots. 'they've got machine guns on the roof,' says Barney" (Gleitzman 158).
  • Right after Felix and Zelda risked it all to escape the natizs, Felix explains, " You know how when you jump off a moving train and Nazis shoot at you with machine guns and you see sharp tree stumps coming at you and then you hit the ground so hard you feel like you've smashed your head open and bullets have gone through your chest and you don't survive even though you prayed to God, Jesus, Mary, The Pope, and Richmal Crompton? That's what happed to poor Chaya." (Gleitzman 162).
