Imagine being taken from your family, getting pushed by gunpoint onto a crammed cattle car on a train, and delivered to a “work” camp (i.e. Concentration Camp, i.e. Death Camp). Imagine further that once there, you were stripped of your clothes and given a prison uniform, fed watery soup, expected to sleep in group bunk beds, and were tattooed with an identification number.

What if you were then given the “honored” job of tattooing all the incoming prisoners.

Awful, right?

Except that you’d be able to use your position to help others get food and medicine.
