They didn't want to believe him. They wanted to delay the fact that it could happen, but they held onto hope that it wouldn't. There was no evidence that it was going to happen because it had never happened before. The Germans were nice in the beginning so the people in the village thought that they couldn't harm anyone. Since his family was the last to get sent to the smaller ghetto they held onto that little hope that maybe, just maybe the Germans would change their minds. Moishe may have been known as crazy, but really he was just in shock of what he witnessed. He fought to survive, to live to tell the people that he cared for that people were getting viciously killed. When he held onto surviving he came back to tell the story and nobody believed him. That alone could make a person crazy witnessing what was happening and trying so hard to convince them to believe him. People didn't want to believe him, he didn't have any proof that these murders were taking place. They just simply wanted to believe that everything was going to be okay, that tomorrow would be fine and nothing was going to change. Moishe was a changed man after he came back from what he witnessed, quiet, just different. He tried so hard to convince, but nothing changed the Jews in his town didn't want to listen to him they wanted to live. They felt as though nothing could harm them, but what they would soon find out from not listening to Moishe is that they would be living what he told them, living in hell. They thought it was to disturbing for the fact that Germans would throw babies up in the air and use them as a target. They thought nobody would do that, they didn't believe how sick the Nazis were. How could somebody do that to a baby? They would soon find out that, that was only one of the sick killings that the Nazis did to people. People not animals, people. If they believed him they would've rebelled. If they would have listened to what he said was happening they could have left to go to safety. If knowing what was happening the outcome would have been totally different. Pain wouldn't of happened, death wouldn't of been so close, life would have seemed amazing. Instead of these choices they saw death, they knew pain, and life seemed as though it didn't matter.
