Does it surprise you that Vladek shows little concern for all those who died in his train car? ( He says "They closed us again. We were very happy, we had now room where to stand.")

I so confused.

The people in the train car were packed in like sardines. There were approximately two-hundred people crammed into one car with no food or water. I cannot say Vladek's lack of concern wasn't understandable..... everyone was afraid for their lives. Those who died made room for those who survived. Note, a lack of concern in the moment doesn't imply he wasn't haunted by the experience for the rest of his life.
