1) He was in complete shock. He was scared. Thoughts of why was my mother saying these things? There’s nothing there. Even to see her son act this way was hard for Jews to watch, usually the mothers are suppose to calm the children. He shut out the fear, the world, and the pain, just stood there at the side of his mother comforting her.
2) They treated her as a crazy person. They didn’t listen to the words she was screaming, fire, fire. The first time it was believable the later times it was just a situation that they didn’t want to listen to. Every time fire was screamed it was like they would some how believe her each time. The thing is they didn’t want to believe her, they didn’t want to believe that the fate ahead of them would possibly burning a slow death that they didn’t see coming. They could’ve actually tried to stand up to Germans if they wanted to survive. If they would’ve believed her maybe, just maybe they could’ve escaped from life in death. They could’ve gotten away from the smell of burning flesh, the witnessing of family killed, their faith burned in the very fire that killed many people. They possibly could’ve….escaped from hell.
