Yankele's Ealry Life
My Opinion of Yankele
My opinion of Yankele is that he is very brave. He lived on his own for multiply years at the age of 8. I also think he is very smart. In order for him to survive, he had to think outside the box and think of new ways to get food. Yankele is also a positive person. He did not give up and he kept going.

Yankele's Journey
Once Yankele was on his own, there were few people who helped him. The First was Sergi. Sergi also got left behind when the train left. He helped Yankele get to a nearby train station. Another person how helped Yankele was the blacksmith. He shaved Yankele's head when he had lice. The biggest help to Yankele was from Pesya. She was a woman that work at a market. She know Yankele well. She told him that woman from Lodz, Poland was looking for her son Yankele. Pesya told Yankele that she was at the train station selling goods. Yankele went to the train station and found his mom.
Yankele's journey begins when WWII starts. His family moves from Poland to Russia. On the way, they slept in barns and in ditches. They would made their way on trains. They would sneak onto freight trains with empty cars. The trains would stop at places where the Germans bombed the tracks. They would jump off the trains and run because the planes would come back and try to bomb the stopped trains. This is how Yankele got separtered from his mama and sister. He got off the train and ran, but he didn't make it back to the train Before it left.
