1. The first step, into hell, the last step into defeat, questions that don’t stop, continuing to be there. Looking at people who were barely human anymore. The fire that not only took peoples life, but their faith. Their faith to go on, their faith to live, burnt like ashes. There wasn’t very much gained from when they entered Auschwitz, maybe just the knowledge of what was going on. What was lost? Everything, family, life, laughter, freedom.
2. “Angel of Death”, the man that always showed up with a look of death. The power that he had over the Jews. Doctor Mengele, a man that warned with a bitter tone. He has the nickname, because when he was around he even scented of death. Elie even said that when he came it felt like the Angel of Death. He used his power to let the Jews know that they were at a concentration camp, that if they didn’t work their only option was death. He left the word chimney as a bad taste in the Jews mouths. The sickening doctor escaped after the war to Austria and then lived in South America, he later died of a stroke.
