    ... of displaced people going by our town and asking for help. Our citizens formed committees, collected money and helped the needy. I re-member how my father, who was on the committee, spent all his Sunday afternoons helping to take care of the poor and needy. The good deeds of our people were numerous.

Is it not therefore appropriate for us, the living, to pause and express our praise and admiration for these brave, good people, who were murdered without any-one coming to their help.

If when the end came, my parents a?.d my sister found some con- solation in the fact that my brother and I were safe in another land, I am grateful. But how can we, the survivors, ever find con-solation ? Perhaps some comfort can be found in the hope that out of the shock produced by this monstrous holocaust there will emerge such a revolution against man's inhumanity to man that future generations may never know the scourge of unreasoned hate and פינה מאנדל, גולדה סישר Savage brutality. Mina Mandel and Golda Fisher
