Best part of story, including ending: What I really liked about this story was that the people that were in the genocide got revenge on their opressors.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene was when the Jew with the baseball bat came and killed the bad guys.

Opinion about the main character: What I liked most about Aldo Raine was his drive to kill the evil people.
