Slaughterhouse-Five

by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 7, Section 8 Summary

  • Werner Gluck was raised in Dresden.
  • He has no idea where the slaughterhouse kitchen is, so he doesn't know where to take Billy and Edgar Derby.
  • He and Billy are rather similar; in fact, they are distant cousins.
  • Gluck leads them to a building he thinks has the kitchen, but boy is he wrong.
  • Instead, the door leads to a communal shower where 30 German refugee girls are bathing.
  • This is the first time Gluck and Billy have ever seen a naked girl. It's old hat to Edgar Derby.
