    ... details, yet, in spite of our inability to imagine the horrible events, we were well aware of the terrible tragedy that had overtaken our families. No words can describe the atmosphere at the camp that evening. We had all been orphaned, our loved ones killed, our homes destroyed. Here we were, in the hands of merciless killers who were preparing a similar end for us. Would it not be better to put an end to such a hopeless, meaningless existence ? Like a herd encircled by slavering beasts of prey we huddled together, without a word of comfort for each other. Later on we lay down on the boards for a night that had no end. Each one of us tried to rationalize the tragedy, but it was useless to do so. From every corner rose the sound of weeping and in the camp with the terrible ...

The following day when the gentile prisoners found out about our "good luck" on the railroad station, they sought out the German under officer in charge and told him that they would perform the work even better than the Jews. The under officer ignored their request with the following answer, "Those who worked yesterday will also work today and the day after for as long as it will be necessary." Several days later new staff arrived for the purpose of taking over the guard post for the camp and in this way "our seven good years" came to an end. The new staff came especially to block number 23 to take ...

Mr. Greenbaum and his wife, the parents of Loshek’s faithful com-panion, were also present. Dr. Seelenfreund’s eulogy was heard in deep silence, punctuated only by the sounds of restrained weeping : "As Loshek’s father it would have been far better for me had I not been here... as Loshek’s friend who has not had the privilege of accompanying him to his final resting place I have come here to express my respect." Sensing the profound distress of those present, Dr. Seclenfreund ended by saying : "Friends, do not despair! Be strong and of good courage ! I have certainly been hurt by my son’s death but I am still strong in spirit. Loshek’s death ...

    ... little by little they fed it to their horses. Soon the hay was almost gone — and so was our hope. We sat rigid — the slightest movement would have been enough to give us away. Every second seemed an eternity. We could not speak, of course, but I was sure that each of us had the same thought: All right, let them come, let whatever must happen happen ; anything will be better than this. Our 44roof" began to disappear. I do not know whether my imagination tricked me or whether I really saw a soldier’s hand reach for the hay right above our heads.' We were saved by the signal for lunch — the soldiers left the barn. We took advantage of the free time to repair our 44ceiling" by grabbing hay stuck in the walls and stuffing it in the roof.
