The Devil's Arithmetic

Why did the blokova lose her 3rd finger?

I know it was because of the other prisoners but what happened did they escape or something

Chapter please? I have found the quote where Hannah notices she only has three finger but forces herself not to think about it. I have notyet located an explanation.

Hannah learns that the lady in the blue dress had her fingers cut off for losing control of the prisoners. Hannah wonders if there is a way to get her into more trouble so that she might lose more fingers. Rivka says it is too dangerous and that it is better to let the grown-ups make their plans.
