When you hear a whistle it is time for lunch break. Lunch is just watery soup. While you are at lunch the kapos will walk around insulting you and beating you or calling you out or laughing at you to the point that you can clearly tell who they are laughing at or anything else that could make them feel bad. You will know lunch break is over when you hear a whistle. Ounce you hear a whistle it is time for you to get back to work. If you were to fall while you were at lunch break and couldn’t get back up most likely the kapos would beat you until you die. You were to work fast ounce again and if the kapos thought you were going to slow you would get beaten or insulted or threatened. This is a new opportunity for kapos to beat you or to kill people. The people who die during the day you have to carry back to camp. Sometimes when you are walking back to the camp the kapos will make you sing. All the prisoners line up in rows of 10 and usually with the dead people in front of them for the kapos to count or sometimes in front of the barracks. If one of the prisoners try to escape you will wait until a kapo brings them back. Sometimes roll call takes up to 10 hours. Before roll call is over they will pick people to beat kill and hang. Sometimes if the day did not go so well ounce you were hung and dead the other prisoners would have to walk bye you. That would show as a warning that that could be you sometimes maybe even tomorrow. Ounce roll call was over it was time for dinner. That would be watered down soup. If you somehow got bread this would be the time to eat it. This was also a time for kapos o make fun of you threaten you beat you. After that you would go to your barrack and before you could go in there was a person waiting there for you who has a green triangle which means he was a regular criminal. He would tell you if you would die or live. If you lived you would have went to your bed or one exercises. Ounce you were done with your exercises you would go to your barrack and finally go to sleep. Until the next day.
