ABSTRACT
Chapter 11 of the book "Scheisshaus Luck: Surviving the Unspeakable in Auschwitz & Dora," by Pierre Berg is presented. The author shares his experience of being alone in his Monowitz block at the Auschwitz concentration camp. He says he felt strange to be alone in the camp, but it felt stranger not to have some menial task to perform. He also narrates that he expected at any moment a Kapo or Vorarbeiter to rush up, eager to beat him into the ground since an idle Häftling was a sin to "the god with a moustache."
