By Kurt Vonnegut

Chapter 6, Section 22

  • The prisoners arrive at a building that had once been a slaughterhouse.
  • The slaughterhouse does not get much business now that most of the livestock in Germany has been killed and eaten.
  • The Americans are brought to a building that once held pigs waiting to be slaughtered. Now it has bunk beds, a water tap, and a latrine.
  • This is Schlachthof-fünf: Slaughterhouse-Five.
