Zlatka's Birthday Card
Zlatka made Fania the card out of thanks and love. Fania always did anything and everything she could to help Zlatka, putting herself at risk every time. Without her, Zlatka may not have survived. When Fania's birthday rolls around for the fourth time, Zlatka sees the perfect opportunity to give back.
If Zlatka had been too scared to make the card, Fania wouldn't have been given the hope and motivation she needed to keep fighting for their survival. Fania knowing that her friends have her back pushes her to keep trying and stave brave. Without the extra courage, all of the girls could have lost hope and, in the end, given up.
