He invents imaginative stories to improve his dismal surroundings.

“ Once I lay in the street in tears because the  Nazis  are everywhere and   no grown-ups can protect kids…
… not Mum and Dad,
… not Mother Minka,
… not Father Ludwig,
… not God,
… not Jesus,
… not the Virgin Mary,
… not the Pope,
… [and] not Adolph Hitler.”
