Character Analysis

Barbara is Rudy's mother. She seems like a nice person, but we don't learn that much about her. All we do know is that she doesn't want her son taken away to a Nazi school, or her husband to go away to war. We can sympathize. Unfortunately, Barbara dies in the Himmel Street bombing.
