On page148, Vladek said "We were happy even to have THESE conditions." Jews, Vladek and Anja were frantic to live. There were lots Jews who din't have home to live, and there were more Jews who weren't allowed even to live. However they could live in a house and have food that they can live. Mrs.Motonowa said to Anja "Well- You're better off with the rats than with the gespato...At least the rats won't kill you!" In the cellar, they had hard life that they couldn't have little food, but they weren't satisfied even when they came back to comfortable "home". Also they had sought better condition. I can understand that they wanted to be released from the anxiety, but even if they didn't feel safe in Mrs.Motonowa's house, they were lucky and they had rather good life. I believe it was better to not demand too much to get complete freedom. I believe that people have to grateful for even a little thing when they live in harsh condition. Because when you thank everything that you can be satisfied you can come to think you are happy. Although I have said that people have to be thankful, how about us? Aren't we a little selfish? Jews who could survive were happy if they could have meal. We can't say happy when we are in that condition. Since we are blessed with our life, we must appreciate for everything.
