A Nazi guard comes in and orders a group of prisoners to come with him. Guido's in the group, but Joshua stays hidden in the bunk bed.
They're sent to a room where a doctor inspects their health. Guido recognizes the man as Dr. Lessing.
Guido whispers the answer to Lessing's farewell riddle. Dr. Lessing recognizes him and says something to the guard.
Bartolomeo's relieved when Guido returns. Guido tells him that they're having a dinner at the camp with all the officials, and Dr. Lessing got him a gig as a waiter. Guido's hopeful his old friend will help them out.
He checks on Joshua and is scared to find him missing. He hears hiccups coming from under the bunk and pulls Joshua out.
Joshua explains that he heard a man crying that they make buttons and soap out of people in the camp and burn them in ovens.
Guido laughs off the notion as ridiculous, but he's visibly strained under the weight of the lie.
Joshua says he's done with this game. He wants to go home.
Guido promises they'll leave. As he walks to the door, he points out that they were so close to winning that tank.
