Vladek is miserable. A priest walks up to him and looks at his numbers. He explains to Vladek that his prison number is numerologically quite lucky in the Jewish tradition.

Vladeks number was 175113. a priest told him that 18, the total of his numbers, is the number for Chai in hebrew, which means life.
