Page 42 and 43, Mrs.Schachter, sees the flames outside of the train car, a reflection within herself, the foreshadowing of the flames the Jews will see in the camps upon arrival. A prophet just like Moishe the Beadle, no believed them when they warned the people about their inevitable doom. Ignorance they ignore them, doubt, they don't want to hear the truth even though the truth will catch up to them in the end. Fire itself is metaphor for transfiguration from body to soul, soul to God, God to man, man to death. Fear to faith; faith in self, in others, in family; in God. Mrs.Schachter is the mirror reflecting the flames that dwell within in her.
