    Vladek begins to introduces his passed by leading Art to his old room. He goes on the stationary bike with a hand holding the handlebars and another holding the seat, and he says, “It's good for my heart, the pedaling"(M I 12).

Just like the ironic phrase at the entrance of Ashchwitz, “Arbeit Macht Frei (Work will set you free)”(M I 157). Vladek has developed the habit of always working.

  • Personal Narrative: Bigger Than Me

    We hopped off the train only to jump onto the hard, cold, fear filled dirt. I looked ahead seeing only small building and a barb wired fence. Curiously, I asked my mom where we were. She responded with a falling tear and two words, “Concentration Camp”. I was curious towards these two words not understanding what they meant.
