Mrs. Schaechter is an old lady who has three children and her husband. Unluckly she was separted from her husban and her two older sons, they were sent to a death camp by "accident". The lady was sent to Auschwitz with her ten year old son, who was the only person she had left. Elie met her during the transportation to Auschwitz. All the seventy-six people (excluding Mrs. Schaechter and her son) were annoyed by Mrs. Schaechter "visions". She woud start screamin -"Fire! is see fire!"- Everyone would look out the windows and they would see nothing. This character reminds me a little bit of Moishe the Beatle because no one listened to him, and the same happened to Mrs. Schaechter.
Mrs. Schaechter is a lady in her fifties that was in the same cattle car as Elie. She has three sons, but her two older sons and husband were separated and sent to the first transport. Mrs. Sschaechter was scared and shattered, and she had lost her mind. She was crying and screaming by the second day. At night, when they were sleeping, they woke up because Mrs. Schachter was screaming, "Fire! I see a fire! I see a fire!" Everyone panicked but they soon found out she was hallucinating. The other people took a long time to recover from their sudden, harsh awakening. Her son was crying and trying to grab her hand. When the screams continued they tied her up and hit her head. In the morning, Mrs. Schacter's little son was no longer crying, he was grabbing his mom's hand, trying to calm her down. She reminds me of Moishe the Beadle because when Moishe was trying to warn the people from Sighet about the troubles ahead, no one cared about what he said. It was kind of the same occasion with Mrs. Schacter because when she was screaming, there was no one caring at the end.
Madame Schachter is a a woman of about fifty and is in the same cattle car as Elie. She has a husband and three sons but her husband and two eldest sons are deported with the first transport by mistake. The seperation shattered Madame Schachter and her youngest son was the only thing she had. With this, she loses her mind. On the first day, she already began moaning and as time passes, her cries grew more hysterical. She screamed, "Fire! I can see a fire! I can see a fire!" At first everyone fell for it but as days passed, they start to grow tired of her hallucinations and tie her up, gag her, and even struck her. Her little boy cried, hanging on to her skirt, trying to take hold of her hand, attempting to calm her down. But the screams kept coming. Madame Schacther's visions are ironic because later on her so called "hallucinations" come true. As they arrive at their destination, they look out the window and "saw this time that flames were gushing out of a tall chimney into the black sky." In a way, this foreshadows what is to come of them... death. I agree with Eun Biy. She does remind me of Moshe the Beadle. Like Moshe the Beadle, she was warning them of their fate. The fire represents the crematorium and the many deaths thats come to them. Moshe the Beadle was warning them to run away before they themsleves get deported but they just would not listen. Everyone thought the Moshe the Beadle and Madame Schacther were insane and that is why they did not believe them. And not believing them leads them to their lives, and even deaths, at Auschwitz.
Mrs. Schaechter is a woman who was about fifty. Elie knew her well as a quiet tense woman, but the night they were being transported he thought she had gone out of her mind. She moaned all night and her cries grew hysterical. She soon started to cry "Fire! I can see fire! I can see fire!" When other looked out the window, there was no fire. As days passed, no one could sleep because of her hysterical cries about seeing fire. Her ten year old son tries to calm her down, but that does not help. Everyone soon grew tired of her cries and were forced to tie her up and put a gag in her mouth. It's ironic because when they arrive to their journey's end all they see is fire. All her screams about seeing fire were true. She remids me of Moshe and the Beadle because a bot of them tried to tell the Jews what they saw, but no one listened. Everyone thought they had gone mad and were lunatics. In the end, they find out the truth.-Tiana
As Jessica said, Madame Schaechter is a woman of around fifty years of age who is in the same cattle car as Elie. She has a young son with her and two others that had already been transported by mistake with her husband. Most of the passengers believed her to be crazy because she almost instantly began moaning on the first day of travel. As time went on, she began to scream about an invisible fire. The only reason why it was invisible was because the other passengers couldn't see it and belived she had gone crazy. She spent most of her time on the cattle car screaming about this fire. At one of the stops, the soldiers struck her with the butt of their guns and tied her up hoping to keep her quiet. However, that didn't stop her and she would still whimper and cry out. Her visions were ironic because they were like prophecies of what was to come for her since women and children were being immeadiately sent to the crematories. It was as if she was seeing her outcome before it really happened. Madame Schaechter reminds me of Moishe the Beatle. He tried and tried to warn the other Jews about the camp and how terrible they were being treated but they didn't listen. Similarly, people didn't listen to Madame Schaechter because they didn't think they could die like that and that she was crazy. -Michael Salazar
"Fire!....Mercy! Oh, that fire!", screams Madame Schacheter on page 22. Madame Schacheter is an old woman about the age of fifty who gone "mad" after lossing her husband and everything that she held dearly to herself; everything that she has come to love. Madame Schacheter sees one thing and one thing only; fire. She sees the red, orange, and yellow flames rising high above and eating and tearing her flesh apart, the only omen that can depict the future of many of the Jews. They reject her and push to the corner and depict her as a mad woman who has been through alot, sort of the same thing they did to Moshe the Beadle. Afew days later guess what the Jews of Sighet came to see. They came see fires that reached high above their heads and could only think of Madame Schacheter's crazy halusinations. So answer me this, who is more crazy, one who talks the truth, or those who wish not to listen or believe.
Madame Schacheter is a middle age woman with a ten year old son. At the third night Mrs. Schacheter biengs to shout that there is fire in the darkness outside the cattle car. Even though there is no fire visble the woman scares the jews in the wagon. Finally the woman stops shouting because some boys in the wagon started to hit her. When they finally get to Auschwitz the jews on the wagon see falmes outside. This character reminds me of Moise the beadle because when he gets to town with his leg all hurt no one belives him. So when the lady is shouting fire it makes me think of Moise. It is like predicting what is going to happen except that Moise did not predict he lived through it.
Mrs. Schaechter is a woman in her fifties and that is with her 10 year old son, Mrs Schaechter is in the same cattle car as Elie. In the third night she screams that there is fire in the darkness but no one sees nothing, and almost evryday it happens so one night when Mrs. Schaechter shouted fire the people in the cattle car just started throwing punches at her face so she could be quite. When the cattle car arrives at Auschwitz the people in the cattle car starts to see fire in the darkness.
Mrs.Schaechter is an old lady that was on the same train as Elie. While going to the camp she was starting to get a bit crazy. She would say that she can see big flames and huge black smocks. The old lady would say that every time and every time people would look out side to check, but there was no big flames nor black smocks. The old lady would keep on saying it, but every time people would get mag little by little. They have never see the flame and the huge black smock, until they have arrived at the camp.
