Paul’s Horrible Vacation

Posted: April 11, 2012 in Uncategorized

As Paul returned to his hometown in Germany on leave, he had a surprisingly horrible time. First of all, he comes home to find out his mom has cancer and family i struggling to even feed themselves. He is then hassled by his over-curious father who keeps asking him about the war and wants to show him off to his acquaintances. He is then met by many other people who want to know about the war, and then people like Kantorek who keeps making ignorant suggestion on ‘how to win the war’. At last, he has to have a terribly awkward visit to Kemmerich’s mom and make up a story about how Kemmerich died easily, when he actually suffered a lot.
