Yaneks Character Analysis
Trait One: Strong Willed
1. Yanek able to survive six years under Nazi control as Jew is proof enough, but Not to mention everything he went through like having no one around to help him and such a huge sense of loneliness that Yanek feels a lot throughout the book.
Trait Two: Emotionally Broken
1. While Yanek was able to survive it doesn't mean that he was alright , at least mentally. Yanek at some points showed a lot of sympathy for one person who the Nazis would be kicking around or if they were messing around with some of the wildlife nearby. However sometimes Yanek would seem like he wasn't phased that several people were murdered right in front of him.
A quote from Yanek:
1. "If i had knew of the next six years of my life I would have eaten more, ran more, played more, and just generally appreciate everything that I had before the Nazis."
