Bed 26

Read the following quote from the novel All Quiet on the Western Front by Remarque.

"Bed 26, amputated thigh."

He sniffs: "How should I know anything about it, I've amputated five legs to-day;" he shoves me away, says to the hospital orderly. "You see to it," and hurries off to the operating room.

Which of the following themes does the quote represent?

a) destruction of nature

b) dehumanization
c) generational responsibility
d) condemnation of warfare

Scroll down for the answer.

a) incorrect; no mention of nature
b) correct; he referred the a patient as a body part instead of as a whole
c) incorrect; because he didn't influence anyone
d) incorrect; because there was no fighting involved

Thanks to Matt and Chase from Mrs. Stamey's class for this question, proving that two heads are better than one, even these two!
