    A Tattoo Parlor
    The Tattoo Parlor
    His body was covered like a child tucked in at night
    He was waiting in line for the moment that would change him forever
    The ink, needles, incisions, pain was waiting
    He was the next victim
    He wanted it though
    It would make him a different man
    Forever

    Interview Thoughts
    After listening to the interviews of the survivors, I think that the pogrom was a truly terrifying thing. Regular German citizens just suddenly came together and turned against the Jews, destroying their homes and belongings. To make things worse, the Jewish people could not do anything about it. They knew they had no chance of stopping the Germans from attacking them. It is very disturbing to see that an entire group of people were completely overrun for no reason at all.
