Freedom and Confinement Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #7

One day when I was able to get up, I decided to look at myself in the mirror on the opposite wall. I had not seen myself since the ghetto.

From the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me.

The look in his eyes as he gazed at me has never left me. (9.25-27)

Though liberated physically, the presence of death and the horrors Eliezer experienced remain with him.
