Illustrious Artist - Julia Jacob - #3

The illustration shown in the left represents the temperature in which the prisoners refer to as warm. This truly shocked me because in our country 0 degrease Celsius is considered extremely cold, and this shows us how harsh the conditions were during that time of year. Something else that we can infer by this is that the people kept in the camp are already used to the work and the temperature, they have already adapted to Soviet's temperature. In page 69, paragraph one, we can see this by the dialogue: "'It's gotten warmer,' Shukhov said at once. 'Zero, no lower. Fine for laying the blocks.'"

  1. I really liked the drawing that you made. It shows exactly what you explained to us that for them 0 degrees was hot, as you already told, probably because they were used to having harsh conditions and that they normally worked when it was negative something degrees. I really liked the drawing that you made.
