Scene 23

  • Dora and the other women are sent to work. A Nazi guard tells an old woman she won't be working.
  • Dora thinks the guard must be kind to not send the children and elderly to work, but a fellow prisoner informs her that the Nazis kill them. They tell them it's time for a shower, but in reality, they are brought to the gas chambers.
  • We see the anguish on Dora's face as she thinks about her son.
  • Guido's working in the factory when Joshua comes running in.
  • Joshua says the other kids were told to go take a shower, but he doesn't want to take one. Guido tells him to go shower, but Joshua stubbornly refuses.
  • In the end, Guido relents as long as Joshua finds a place to hide until his work is over.
