It was the beginning of 1938, before the war, hanging high in the center of town, was a Nazi flag.
This quote shows that the people were scared and confused why there was a Nazi flag hanging in the middle of their own town. Also, they were wondering if the Nazi's have taken over their town, if they have destroyed their homes and buildings. In addition to what the citizens thought, the town did get worse. The Nazis were doing things to the Jews that people should never do to someone.
There was many stories, synagogs burned down, Jews beaten with no reason, whole towns pushing out all Jews, each story was worse than the other.
During World War II, the Nazis did horrible things to the Jews. The had burn there religious places, they killed them, the tortured them, and they did worse things. In the book, they told what happened to the Jews that lived in their town. The Nazis came in a did whatever they wanted to, and nobody could stop them in their proses.
