There were not much people as animals. Sometimes small and frightened, huddling together in cattle cars, wounds gaping, tongues swelling even as they licked the moist frost from the walls - each of them wondering if he would be the next to die before reaching the crude operating table...­And sometimes brawling, robbing and raping as they swept into Hamburg to glut themselves on life for one more day, or just one more night...
