Could you re-write this and be more specific please?

I'm sure I can help then.

The train takes the Jews to Auschwitz in Section 2. There really isn't an incident between a father and a son. Madame Schachter has been driven mad by the experience. She screams and shrieks, everyone tries to help her, but there is no way to help. The others ask if she can be taken to the hospitsl, and the german soldiers tell them to be patient. At the end of the chapter, the flames she's been imagining become a reality. The fragile nature of reality can be seen in the trust of her son as he takes her hand........... they jump from the train together.
