The events of this chapter take place over the first two days in which the author and his family are transported from their home village to imprisonment. Along the way, the author is subjected to extreme heat in the carriages, overcrowding, a bombing threat, and unsafe conditions. In the midst of all these hardships, he details the struggles of those around him to hold their lives together in the stifling silence that pervades their journey.
