By Cynthia Ozick Stella (brown dress) Rosa (purple shawl) Magda (baby) During the time of the holocaust
Stella gazes at Magda wanting to eat her. She is being starved just like everyone else on the journey.
As they were making the journey, Magda has been very quiet and content. She has been using her mother and the shawl as a way to hide her hunger.
Stella takes the shawl from Magda because she is cold. She uses it to cover her body therefore Magda can not suppress her hunger. She begins to scream "MAMAA".
The men have already found Magda and are taking her away from he mother. Rosa watches as her daughter become smaller and smaller in the distance. Right before Magda disappears, she sees them throw her in to an electric fence killing her. Rosa is devastated and can't take her eyes away.
Rosa takes the shawl and shoves it in her mouth to keep herself quiet.
