Zejneba when found out about Kabiljo, she went to the camp and many times she would bring him some food, just until Yofes somehow managed to escape and he returned to Hardaga´s home. By help of Ahmed Sadik, they got their new documents with Christian names, but when Nazis found out about it, they executed Ahmed.
