Six in a Bunker [שישה בבונקר אחד]

Author(s): Asher Nahor
In a bunker under an apartment live six people: two young women, three young men and one old man. In the apartment above lives an Aryan family, enjoying the luxuries of life. The old man wants to stay above ground and die, but the youngsters force him to remain with them. Soon they need more supplies and have to go outside to get food. One of the women is caught and brought to the apartment. She manages to shoot the soldier and escapes to the bunker. One of the men is caught while on a supply run. He is tortured in the apartment, but gives up nothing, and the soldiers kill him. When they discover the ghetto is surrounded, the old man volunteers to save them by sacrificing himself while the others run to the woods.
