Ivan Denisovich - Part 7

It is dark before Ivan Denisovich's team can return from their work at the power station.  It has been a long, exhausting day but two men remain unaccounted-for. 

Will the crews be allowed to rest, inside, or will the guards make good their threats to keep the zeks outside all night?

As they near the camp, another team is returning from their assignments.  Unless Ivan and his fellow prisoners run back, there may not be enough food for them.

During their return, a fellow prisoner asks Ivan Denisovich a series of questions.  Among other things, he wants to know whether Ivan believes in God.  And ... what do people in Ivan's village think about such things?

Then ... it's time for the returned prisoners to be searched before they can enter their barracks.  Ivan is carrying a sharp object, strictly forbidden in the camp.  He prays that it not be discovered and that he be spared punishment for possessing it.
