I was dreadful very small and dark

You are right the cattle wagons were small, cramped and dark. There were only small holes of light through the walls of the wagon to ventilate or see through. Elie often used them to suck fresh air through. Their source of water was when rain spilled through the holes. There were no washrooms so naturally the stench was bad. During the day the heat was suffocating.
