It was 1942 in Frankfurt, Germany and you could almost make out the smell of the cold winter air. World War II was uprising and the Nazis were scattered all over Germany, they were taking hundreds of thousands of Jews each day. They were being taken to camps that no one ever returned from. The only people who did end up surviving, were those who escaped, and the stories that were being told by the escapers were a living horror story. In a small house, which was a faded blue color with missing roof pieces and slightly cracked windows, was a Jewish family of six with only two bedrooms to share and a living room that could barely fit three people. The parents, Claudia and Bruno, had both lost their job. They barely had enough food for two meals…show more content…
The children had no parents to make them meals or to wash their clothes. They had to survive on their own with little money they found around the little faded blue house. After two weeks without their parents Karla began to worry about them getting caught by the Nazi and taken away to the prison camps. The kids were almost out of food from around the house and there was no way they could leave and not get caught.

A pounding sound on the floor above startled Karla and she lost her train of thought. Her heart pounded harder as the pounding got closer and closer to the basement, then her life started to fall apart after one single second. One of the officers lifted up the top of the emergency room door and there he was, a tall man with perfectly jelled brown hair and dirt ugly brown eyes that matched the ugly off green uniform they wore. Karla sat up and stared right up at him as if she had never seen anyone like that before, he stared right back at her. "Get up and get out of there this instant!" demanded the officer.
