I fell to my knees and wept. Had I really made it? Had I actually survived the Krakow ghetto and ten different concentration camps? I had been ten when the war started. Now I was sixteen. For more than six years I had been a prisoner of the Nazis. Prisoner B-3087. Now it was all over." (p.245) "Kill me, I prayed. Please kill me and put an end to this . I'm ready.Water rained down on me. Freezing water so cold it made me scream. Water!Not gas! I was going to live! I laughed and cried, and so did the other men. We celebrated as we shivered, hugged one another and shaking hands, all of us granted a last-minute reprieve by the Nazis. I was alive."
