Scene 31

Scene 31

  • Paul and Albert end up in a Catholic hospital.
  • A wounded soldier named Hammacher shares a bed next to them.
  • He says he hopes they don't die too soon—everyone else croaks before he gets a chance to know them. He's weirdly cheerful.
  • The nuns take a soldier out of his bed, and Hammacher tells Paul and Albert that the man is going to the "dying room," a room set up next to the morgue where they take the soldiers who have no chance of living.
