By the time Vladek returns to Sosnowiec from the prisoner of war camp, what happened to the food supply?

In Chapter Six, after the couple have returned to Sosnowiec, they find the food supply is virtually depleted if you can't afford to shop the black market. The couple are directed to the black market by another Jew in hiding. They later find shelter with the black market grocer, but her husband isn't sympathetic, and if he finds them they'll be turned in. The food supply in the basement is sparse, and Vladek and Anja are forced to stay in the basement for ten days with little food.
