After their arrival at every camp, Eliezer and his group are sent to take showers. While this might seem like a good thing, these group showers--where they herded in and out like cattle and are all given identical clothes afterwards--are just one of the many ways the Jews are dehumanized by the Nazis. It is also ironic because we now know that, in Nazi concentration camps, gas chambers were often misrepresented as "showers" and that many people died in them.
