400,000 Jews are trapped in the ghetto. It is terrible. Yesterday...
I have no guarantee he will survive if he escapes, but I guarantee he will die if he stays.
The story starts off with Irena telling her friend about the horrors she had witnessed in the Warsaw Ghetto.
We escaped safely... Also, do you think I can bury this jar under your tree?
Irena explains how she had escaped the ghetto with a child. At first, the mother was hesitant to part with her child, but in the end, she agreed it would be best for the baby.
This is the peak of the plot pyramid where Irena escapes with the baby. The baby is crying. Irena stamps on her dog's paw causing the dog to bark. This makes the Nazi dogs bark as well giving Irena a chance to escape.
Irena concludes her story and asks her friend if she is able to bury a jar under the apple tree.
Sure, we will unearth it after the war
Inside the jar contains one slip of paper. They are the baby's records so the baby is able to be reunited with its mother after the war.
