Night (Pages 23-28)

The Jewish people were in the cattle car under extremely harsh conditions. Many were exhausted, tired, and dehydrated. It was very hot, and they had to take turn sitting. There was a woman in the cattle car that kept having delusions of seeing a "fire". She was hit repeatedly because of her outburst. After days under these conditions, they arrive at a concentration camp. The woman yells again and wakes up everyone from their daze bacause of her screams. This time, however; there really is a fire. The smell of burning flesh is in the air. It was dark, around midnight. They had officially arrived in Birkenau.
