A Meal in Winter by Hubert Mingarelli

Find in textThis was an interesting read. Three soldiers cannot take one more day of shooting Jewish prisoners at the camp. So they opt for the only other task ā€“ going out into the frigid winter to find more Jews. They discover one, and end up taking their lunch in an abandoned Polish home. As they are cooking their cornmeal, emotions run amok. To add to the tension, a Polish man also joins them. I found it hard to read, as it is such a painful subject. However, I thought this a good perspective into the lives of the men who followed orders, or had to, and what it cost them.
