It is about a Jewish mouse that was in World War II. It is later in his life and he is telling his kid. They were shipped from camp to camp by train. The nazis were cats. It is kind of like what actually happened in World War II.

Theme

Aushwitz

Aushwitz is a concentration camp. There is crematoriums. There is gas chambers. They hung Jews, poles, gypsies, and homosexuals. The only way to get out is to work.


Reflection

It is a lot like what acually what happened in real life.
