"Come on, Michael, you just have to do an Arschbombe
Small steps, small steps.
"No, I mean, I'm really really sorry."
In this scene, Michael must go through Nazi training to become a senior youth. One of the tests he needs to pass is to jump off of a two story building into a pool underneath. he is deathly afraid of heights, and so, he needs influenced.
"The tower beside the pool was two stories tall and made of crisscrossing wood. A rough ladder went straight from the ground to the top, and boys waited in line on it until there was room for them at the top. From there they plummeted twenty feet to smack down into the icy cold water below." (Alan Gratz 135)
I specifically chose this scene, because it seemed to be very important to the page range. This was important, because it was the one test that Michael had a slim chance of making, and if he did not, he would not be able to join the Hitler youth. Also, it was a very eventful and descriptive scene that I found interesting.
