Introduction

Ever since they brought us here, it was clear that it wouldn't be a pleasant place to be. Ever since they took over, life's been a nightmare. We were packed into freight cars like animals. With no food, water, or privacy at all. I've been here for almost a year now. All my friends that I've made have died, or are struggling to survive. I don't know if I can take much more here. I don't have such a bad job among the others. They make me do construction type jobs so they can house more of us. It's not so bad considering others have jobs like cleaning up the corpses of the people who die daily. Corporal Kedem is in charge of us while we're on duty. He's cruel, just yesterday he had a man executed because he complained that he was thirsty. He doesn't like me much; I always give him a hard time. I'm surprised he hasn't had me executed yet. Right now we're working on a few more bunkers that will house twenty thousand more of us. ...read more.

Middle

He gave me a speech on how he thought Hitler and his ideas were true and that he thought the German race would become superior through the genocide of other "inferior" races. He said once the war was over, the Nazi party would rule the world. We exchanged a few more words and ideas, and you could tell I was making him furious because the tone of his voice was getting louder, and his face was getting red. The last thing I told him was that he would die before this war was over and that I'd get out and be successful. With the end of my last comment he pulled out a gun and told me that he was going to put a stop to it and shot me in the chest numerous times, emptying the gun magazine. I staggered around for about a few minutes then I dropped. The last thing I saw was the grin on Kedem's face. I knew I would have died either way. I am glad that I stood up for what I believed in, and I'm glad that I didn't die without pride. ...read more.

Conclusion

He was a brave person; quite the patriot for what he believed in, even though he knew what he believed in would have him beheaded. He started how to speak of the weakness of the Nazi Party, and the things that made Hitler untruthful and fake. I went on to tell him why his puny Jewish race should be exterminated and wiped off the face of the Earth. He really began to tick me off when he started personal attacks on what I said. I began to yell at him and I became furious. My two guards took out the rifles and pointed them at the prisoner. I told them to back off and to let me handle this myself. I wasn't about to let some smart talking inferior being tell me off and make a fool of me and my country. I took out my pistol and pointed it in his face. As I told him that we would conquer the war, I emptied the magazine into his chest. I laughed furiously and grinned as he staggered around and fell to the ground. After he fell, I had his body carried off by the guards. To me, he was just another smart mouthed prisoner waiting for a death sentence. He wanted it, so he received it. ...read more.
