Illustrious Artist - Helena Segall
What I drew was a line of kids going to recess. I remember that when we where younger we had to walk in a single, straight, silent line. If we broke any of these rules we sometimes got penalized. For example, one day my class was going to recess, and my friend and I were talking. The teacher told us to be quiet, because we were interrupting other classes around us. Although, when she stopped us to tell us to be quiet I was in the middle of a sentence and after she was done giving us a warning I just finished my sentence. I got penalized and I didn't get to play around in recess that day. The reason that I drew this was because when I was reading the book there was one part that they said that they had to walk in groups of five people. They then were warned that if anyone went out of the line they would be shot without anyone noticing. I remembered of how we used to get penalized if we didn't do what our teacher told us to do in the line. To add, I think that they are too harsh in the people in the gulag, people would get killed for every single detail that they did wrong. I don't think that it is right to kill someone for stepping out of line.
