In the book Daniel's Story the family was moved to the ghetto of Lodz. In the Ghetto the family members tried to find jobs to do to make money but the food was scare and so was work. All they had to eat were a few ounces of bread and some thin soup everyday.
The weather was freezing in the winter and the houses were cold. Even a family members child developed frostbite in his fingers and feet.
Mother had obtained a job at a bakery. She brought home a loaf of bread every few days. It had to last each person for seven days. Daniel's mother stretched their food out and served it frugally enabling them not to feel the effects of starvation.
