Chapter 5, Herr Kremer and Fraulein Ilse, Part 3 Summary

Herr Geek, the new teacher, is a small, peasant, mean, aggressive, man who bursts into the classroom with resounding shouts of, "Heil Hitler!" At first, Ernie finds his hand pointing to the ceiling with the rest of the class, which he brings down in shame. The Jewish students are grouped with dogs and Negroes and separated at the back of the room. He asks why the Jewish people want to dominate the universe. Herr Geek delights in physically and emotionally tormenting the Jewish children. He tries to force the Jewish students to sing German patriotic songs and when it is Ernie's turn, he meekly offers his arm for punishment. Even though he is injured, Ernie is pleased that he did not deny his heritage or beliefs.
