How do your opinions of Mamusia and her reaction to Eva's work as a forger change? Do you believe Joseph when he tells Eva that Mamusia said she was proud of the work Eva did to help keep children from being erased?

On page 16, Mamusia tells Eva, "If we shrink from [the Germans], if we lose our goodness, we let them erase us. We cannot do that, Eva. We cannot." Rereading this and knowing that Mamusia felt this way before tragedy struck, how do your opinions of her and her reaction to Eva's work as a forger change? Do you believe Joseph when he tells Eva that Mamusia said she was proud of the work Eva did to help keep children from being erased?

Mamusia was an extremely hurt woman concerned about her husband and nothing else. No, I don't believe what Joseph said as he was not a trustworthy person.
