Channah’s Fear

Channah refused to enter the train station depot.

“Mom, why is Channah so afraid to go inside the train station?”  Alex questioned.

“It reminds her of the past, when her family was forced to go on the trains and she never saw them again,” his mother explained.

“The mass transportation of the railways made it possible for the elimination of people targeted as condemned prisoners.  They were  transported to German Nazi concentration, forced labor, and extermination camps.”

“She never found out what happened to them,” said his mother.

  1. This is very heartbreaking. I think something good for Alex to know. Channah being afraid of trains is understandable and Alex need to know about those awful times, so humanity never repeats what the Nazi’s did for any person or people’s. Well done Jessie.


  2. With such memories, no wonder she can’t bear to be there. Good thing that the mother explains the details to the child.


  3. Yes, things should be explained to children so they will have a better understanding of why people react to things the way they do. Thank you for reading and commenting. 🙂
