Transcript of Prisoner b-3087
In the 1930s a Jewish boy named Yanke was at the mercy of the cruel Nazis. Just a week ago Yanke was sitting at the dinner table with plenty of food on his plate, now he is lucky to get a piece of bread that is not two months old. As he was put in 10 different concentration camps 3 death marches, and with all his family gone he barely escapes death saying ,''If I had known what the next six years of my life would've been like I would of eaten more. I wouldn't have complained about brushing my teeth , or taking a bath, or going to bed at eight o'clock every night.I would of played more. laughed more. I would of hugged my parents and told them i love them. but that was ten years old, and I had no idea of the nightmare that was to come. None of us did''.
Yanke and his family hear gun shots outside and Yanke looks out the window and sees German solders open fire on his apartment building. Yanke and his family also hears a scream across the hall and they see and elderly woman being beat by german solders. To protect themselves they decide to hide on the roof in a chicken coop. But then they heard an announcement '' We need 10,000 jews to come with us to a different place, if you do not cooperate you and your family will be shot dead,you can run but you can't hide''. Yanke and his family go out of their hiding place and turn themselves in to the Nazis. Little did they know it was a draft to go to a concentration camp.
In the 1930s Krakow(Yanke's hometown) was invaded by the Nazis. The Nazis slowly took away the jews right intill one day Yanke and his family were told to pack one bag and line up next to the street. Yanke and his family were shipped away to a live in a ghetto. In the ghetto Yanke had to share a little apartment with four other family's. Everyday Yanke and is father had to battle to put food on the table. While all of this was happening in their apartment they saw people being dragged into trucks and the roomer was the people that were taken away were forced to dig their own whole were they would die.
Yanke is at his 10 concentration camp and after 3 death marches and surviving the gas chambers he is barely alive. That night yanke heard gunshots and the ground shaking from bombs and grenades. In the morning there was no role call so yanke slowly opend the door and looked outside and saw no one there, the camp was empty. Yanke yells to the prisoners the news and they all come running out. Then they saw a number of tanks and tanks and soldiers Yanke was very scared until he saw the American flag on the soldiers ''It's the allies screamed'', screamed Yanke and for the first time in six years of brutal torture he was free.
The American troops give Yanke and the prisoners some food then they take them back to there base where they gave them a bed, toothbrush, 3 full meals with thick soup and being feeling loved and happy for the fist time in 6 years.
Yanke goes back to his hometown and recognizes a woman walking on the other side of the street. It was Yanke's old neighbor. She yelled across the street to Yanke and gave him a big hug. Yanke went inside his neighbors house and she gave him and money to go to America where he could find a job and start over.
