defies title

We've started reading Night and have watched parts of a documentary showing Elie Wiesel visiting his old village and then traveling to Auschwitz.

I'm starting class.

"What have we seen so far?"

"Wiesel goin home"

"Right, he went to Sighet and then traveled to where?"

"Ass-wash"

No one laughed. They all believed it. We have work to do.

Maybe it's just that feeling that, considering what you learn in school some days, anything at all could be true.

I'm sorry, maybe this is rude, but I'm laughing. Ass-wash, indeed!
