This activity focuses on an encounter between a youth and an adult. The encounter takes place in the funeral home. The youth is a young journalist, Peter, and he is interviewing the director of the funeral home, Dr. Bock. In normal times, a meeting of this kind would seem like an hallucination, but in the ghetto the children's exposure to death was a matter of routine.
Was the world of the adults completely revealed to the children? Did the adults have any control over their lives and lives of their children in the ghetto? What frameworks could they provide for them? These are the questions that come up in this activity.
Yad Vashem Some kind of assistance existed for the deported people, for those who were destined for the transports. We went and helped them pack. We helped them carry their suitcases ... I felt very strong then, and I had some kind of desire to help those people. They were helpless, those people. Sometimes, and that was interesting, they were prepared to rely on a 10- or 11-year-old child to help them Yad Vashem
