He looked hard into my face and did not seem to know me. “You go. Every night you go,” he said. “Why do you come back?” I did not have an answer. Maybe he found it in my face, for after a while he turned and walked off. Up the street the man was on the ground.

The children went back because they had to..... family and survival, helping those who couldn't escape survive, it was a need. To leave their families behind would have granted them freedom from the ghetto, but it would never have granted them freedom from guilt.
