    ... the officers shouting that demolishing the big warehouses filled with Jewish-owned merchandise was their duty so as to prevent its falling into the Germans’ hands—thus bestowing on the looting the cloak of a dutiful national deed. Very few Jews fled from Kolbuszowa. They were warned against flight by the refugees who after traversing hundreds of miles on foot were caught by the enemy. The local Jews witnessed this, for when the Germans entered Kolbuszowa, there were tens of thousands of Jewish refugees in the town. On Friday, September 8, the first German tank rolled into town. That night the Polish soldiers vanished, and on Saturday morning

All troubles disappear as with a magic wand. The sense of power one has in one’s own land is rejuventating and disperses my sense of inadequacy. Here in my Jewish homeland the instrument of our future survival, I am filled with self-exaltation, renewed vitality and pride ...

    ... to posterity. And if these will not be perfect docu-ments, let them at least contain some smattering of what we, the living dead, thought and felt, pondered and spoke about. Upon the graves in which we are buried alive the world is celebrating a witches’ Sab-bath in a satanic dance; the beat of the feet smothers our groans and our cries for help. By the time we are taken out of our graves we will have been asphi-xiated, non-existent, dust to be dispersed over the seven seas. Then every man of culture, of decency, will think himself obliged to grieve for us and eulo-gize us.
