Transcript of Prisoner B-3087

By Alan Gratz
Concentration Camps in Auschwitz:

The day of February 13th, 1942 engraved with blood in the annuals of Krakow history. It was then that Amon Goeth became the commandant of the camp. Amon Goeth wouldn't eat breakfest until he killed atleast one Jew.
Amon Leopold Goeth, like many Nazi criminals, was born in Vienna, on December 11,1908. Before the war he was a modest clerk, with a passion for literature. He was a ticking time bomb. Unfulfilled murderers, domestic sadists – nice and likeable on the surface, of whom a neighbour, upon hearing that by noon they killed half a kindergarten, would say “impossible, he was such a nice and well-mannered man”.

What the Nazi's did to torture Jewish people:
Jews were whipped, and also skinned alive.
Sometimes guards would push them to the ground and kick them to death.
Jews sent to the "showers" were told to undress in front of everyone before entering the showers. Once in there they would bolt the doors shut and fill the chambers with gas
They used cruel and unusual experimental devices, and also did cruel experiments like sewing Jews together at the torso to see if they could live as "Siamese twins."
The German doctors did cruel medical experiments that few Jews survived.
Tied them to a post and tore the flesh off their backs with a stick wrapped with barbed wire.
Using saltwater and electricity

Amon Goeth was a cruel commandant at one of Yanek's Concentration camps.

lives with, until he finally moves to the United States to start a new life, and new has a new name, known as Jack Gruener.
Theme :
Literary Connection #1
Extra Credit
The theme of the book is to never lose hope keep trying to survive. Yanek did this every day to survive. He used the little bit of hope he had to keep going. Without that little bit of hope Yanek wouldn't have survived the Holocaust.
Metaphor :
"We cannot let these monsters tear us from the pages of the world." This quote shows the determination of Yanek's uncle and not letting the monsters (Nazis) take them from the world, or in other words, kill their people. (The Jewish race.)
