Quote #10

But even that was not to be for Peter. The Nazis refused to return the bodies of the young men they shot at Ryvangen. They simply buried them there where they were killed, and marked the graves only with numbers. (17.9)

War takes away so many basic human kindnesses and courtesies. As a Resistance fighter, Peter saved countless lives. But when the Nazis execute him, he just becomes a number.
