Self-Deception and Oblivion
The chapter name reflects how the Jews in Sighet were lying to themselves that the German officers moving them was something good, when in reality, it's actually something very bad.
The picture shows a man putting his head in the sand, which could mean that he's trying to make himself oblivious to his surroundings. This reflects how the Jews of Sighet kept themselves oblivious to the danger of the Germans taking them away by being optimistic about the presence of the Germans.
"Little by little life returned to 'normal.' The barbed wire that encircled us like a wall did not fill us with real fear. In fact, we felt this was not a bad thing; we were entirely among ourselves. A small Jewish republic...A Jewish Council was appointed, as well as a Jewish police force, a welfare agency, a labor committee, a health agency-a whole governmental apparatus.
People thought this was a good thing. We would no longer have to look at all those hostile faces, endure those hate-filled stares. No more fear. No more anguish. We would live among Jews, among brothers..."(Wiesel, 11-12)
The quote shows how the Jews kept on thinking to themselves that the ghettos were actually a good thing, when in reality, they were the opposite, hence the name given for this chapter.
