Slaughterhouse-Five

Slaughterhouse-Five

by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 5, Section 8 Summary

  • The Germans put the Americans into groups of five to march through the camp.
  • They see more starving Russians behind barbed wire fences.
  • They come to a shed where a man takes down their names.
  • This gives them the legal status of "alive" – before, they were all M.I.A. and presumed dead.
