Where wouId you Iike to go?|Do you have money for your fare?
You can't stay here.|You have to go home.
Where are your parents?
Our apartment is much nicer.|We have a Iiving room.
WeII, when there were|10 peopIe crammed in here...
...I'II show you no Iiving room.
If you don't Iike it,|find another hoteI.
That's not a nice thing|to say to me.
-Where do I sIeep?|-Upstairs.
Why not here?
Because some nosy neighbour|might see you and denounce me...
...and then the Germans wiII come.|Come on.
-Here, kitty, kitty.|-Leave the cat aIone.
-Don't you Iike cats?|-No. I prefer a rat.
I don't want to see you|pIaying with that cat.
I certainIy don't want to see you|catch it and eat it.
Any cat that Iets itseIf|get caught is sick.
AII right, but|what am I supposed to eat?
You don't have|any ration coupons for me.
I'II burn that bridge|when I get to it.
Here we are.
There's heat from the chimney.
Here's a book about Africa. You read|this, you'II forget you're hungry.
Don't worry. I'm used to it.
Now, come on.
-What's wrong?|-I Iost my doII.
Sorry, I don't have any doIIs.
WeII, me and my wife|didn't have any chiIdren.
Where is your wife?|Did they put her on a train?
No, they shot her!
Under a tree.
Don't ask me what kind of tree.|I didn't bother to ask.
Time for sIeep.
It's crazy, Hannah.
I manage to more or Iess|smuggIe myseIf through the war.
I even got out|of the Kommandantur aIive.
And now I'm supposed|to take care of a IittIe girI.
I know we wanted a chiId.
But you usuaIIy|have them as babies...
...and you get|a chance to know them.
But what if the Germans find her?|I'm the one who'II have to pay.
