  • Jewish Prisoners
    817 words

Women, children, and men of all ages were killed for not being able to work for the Germans. The way Elie describes everything was amazing. I read the book in one sitting if that tells you anything. Since I have really never heard the...

It is only when you step back, stop looking at the wires one by one and take a macroscopic view of the whole cage, that you can see why the bir...
