This Story Board illustrates the train ride to the first concentration camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau. On the way a lady named Madame Something would yell out,"FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!" This would make people more scared and nervous so other Jews in the cart would beat her until she was quiet. Then after a couple of days, they arrived to at camp and saw a furnace and the fire.
The train stopped in Kaschau, a small town on the Czechoslovakian border.
Mrs. Schächter had lost her mind
"Look at the fire! Look at the flames! Over there!"
We awoke and rushed to the window yet again. But there was nothing outside but darkness.
"She is hallucinating because she is thirsty, poor woman.."
In front of us, those flames. In the air, the smell of burning flesh... We had arrived. In Birkenau.
