Art feels inadequate and poorly-equipped to finish the book he has set out to draw, and he is filled with complex emotions regarding his family and the Holocaust.

"He has trouble relating to his parents' experiences, and sometimes he wishes he could have been in Auschwitz with them just so he could know what they went through. He feels guilty about having had an easier life. As a child he would sometimes think about which parent he would choose to have taken to Auschwitz; usually, he chose his father.
