Passage #1: " We passed the market where always we bought to eat, and passed even the street we used to live, and we came til the prison, and there they put us. " (Pg.155)
I chose this passage from page 155, when Vladek was telling one of the last occurrences before the book ended. I picked this because it tells us the last thing they saw before going to concentration camp. It was important, because they remembered all the good times they had before they had to hide and be afraid of even leaving their houses. As I read this passage, it made me reflect back to the beginning of the book, and how everything changed. Additionally, I picked this image because we see how this little boy is moving, and how sad he (and the dog) look.
Passage #2: " We came here to the concentration camp auschwitz, and we knew that from here we will not come out anymore... we knew the stories- that they will gas us and throw us in the ovens. This was 1944... we knew everything. And here we were."
I picked this passage for two reasons. Number one is that as soon as I read this, I remembered of the book and movie "The boy in the striped pajamas". It is a very famous book and also very sad. It reminded me of how they tell us about this gas chamber where they dump in poison and kill all the Jewish prisoners. That's what Vladek meant when said "they would gas us". Also, my second reason is that it made me think of how terrified they were. Specially by the fact they knew how they would die, and that they WERE gonna die. It was so sad knowing you would never see your wife or children again.
