    • B.

      They are going to Germany

    • C.

      They are going to be deported

    Correct Answer
    C. They are going to be deported
    Explanation
    Elie's father returns from his late night meeting of the council with the news that they are going to be deported.

This news is devastating as it signifies the loss of their homes, possessions, and potentially their lives.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    How many people rode on each train car?

    • A.

      50

    • B.

      100

    • C.

      80

    Correct Answer
    C. 80
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 80 because it is the only option that satisfies the question of how many people rode on each train car. Since the question does not specify the total number of people or the number of train cars, we cannot determine the exact number of people per car. However, out of the given options, 80 is the only number that could potentially represent the number of people per car, as both 50 and 100 are unlikely to evenly divide into the total number of people or train cars.

    Correct Answer
    C. Fire
    Explanation
    During the train ride, Madame Schachter imagines she sees fire. This suggests that she is experiencing hallucinations or delusions, possibly due to the extreme stress and trauma of the situation. The fire imagery could also symbolize the impending destruction and suffering that awaits them at the concentration camp.

    Correct Answer
    C. To let them die and prepare them for the camps
    Explanation
    The purpose of the ghettos during the Holocaust was to confine and isolate Jewish people in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. The ghettos were intended to be a temporary solution while the Nazis planned for the mass deportation of Jews to concentration camps, where they would ultimately be killed. The ghettos served as a way to control and dehumanize the Jewish population, making it easier for the Nazis to carry out their genocidal plans.

By lying about their age and profession, they may be able to manipulate others' perceptions of them and achieve their desired outcome.

      “Work is Liberty”

    • C.

      "Work for food"

    Correct Answer
    B. “Work is Liberty”
    Explanation
    The slogan for Auschwitz is "Work is Liberty" because it reflects the twisted ideology of the Nazi regime that believed in exploiting and dehumanizing prisoners through forced labor. The slogan was meant to deceive and manipulate the prisoners into believing that their work was a form of freedom, when in reality it was a means of control and oppression. This slogan encapsulates the harsh reality of life in Auschwitz, where prisoners were subjected to grueling labor under inhumane conditions.

    Madame Scachter's vision in the story is an example of foreshadowing because it hints at future events that will unfold.

This literary device is used to build suspense and create anticipation in the reader, allowing them to anticipate the upcoming events and their consequences.
