    Explanation
    During the time when the German Nazi soldiers arrived in Sighet, the Jewish people were forced to live in two ghettos in town. Ghettos were segregated areas where Jewish people were confined and isolated from the rest of the population. This was a measure implemented by the Nazis to control and oppress the Jewish community, making it easier for them to carry out their discriminatory policies and eventual deportation to concentration camps. The establishment of ghettos aimed to restrict the movement and freedom of Jewish individuals, subjecting them to harsh living conditions and constant surveillance.

    Explanation
    During the transportation of the Sighet Jews, they were loaded onto cattle box cars.

This dehumanizing treatment further emphasizes the inhumane conditions and disregard for the lives of the Jews during this period.

    • D.

      Mrs. Schacter's child

    Correct Answer
    C. Mrs. Schacter
    Explanation
    Mrs. Schacter foreshadows the fate of the Jews. In the book, she experiences visions and premonitions of the horrors that the Jews will face, such as the burning of bodies and the loss of their homes. Her cries and warnings are dismissed by others, but her foreshadowing proves to be accurate as the Jews later face the atrocities of the Holocaust. Her character serves as a symbol of the prophetic nature of foreshadowing in the story.
