    ... thing was to get away from Belsen. At the time I worked in the kitchen with Gina Sturmlaufer. It was impossible to inform us about the transport which went off all of a sudden. When we came back from work the only one of the Rzcs-zow group left was Mina Wider, who did not wish to part from us. The others left with the transport, while we three remained together with Hilda Kuckuk of Dcmbitz. Standing firm together we passed through the period of typhoid and starvation more easily. When the warm spring breeze began to blow an epidemic of Dysentery broke out. The shortage of water and impossible sanitary conditions led to an epidemic of typhoid. Dead bodies lay in scores and hundreds on the rubbish heaps and the paths. In Bergen Belsen we were given fresh numbers. I inspected mine ...

    ... them to do the hard work but the prisoners, whose rations were minimal, did not survive more than two or three months of it. Luckily for me I was assigned to a maintenance miner. It often happened that after a night-shift in the dark mine, as we marched, heavily guarded, back to the camp just as the sun was rising, we would meet with a group, still half asleep, that had risen betimes. Casting a quick glance at us they would hurry past. What could have been their thoughts at such a moment ? Our own thoughts and feelings were indescribable. On both sides of the road we saw budding trees with nesting birds flying over their tops and green meadows spreading in all directions. The powerful scents of the flowering plants confused the senses and for a moment I imagined myself ...

    ... , threats, murderous terror, isolation and segregation of the victims, they did their work systematically and effi-ciently. We spent two weeks at the so-called Birkenau ,,quarantine", a period which I do not intend to describe. Thence the prisoners were sent to a "tran-sport". The S.S., units, besides murdering and robbing their victims of their property and sending it by the car-load to Germany, were also quick to fill their own pockets, guzzling like pigs and avoiding duty at the front. In order to provide jobs for as many of their friends as possible they saw to it that many construction and arms’ plants were opened in the vicinity of the camps. The Jewish slaves were rented out to work there for a certain payment. The whole area of the outlying camps constituted branches ...

    ... prison was therefore inhabited by former low-grade government officials : Zionist activists arrested with the coming of the Russians, refugees caught without residence permits, street peddlers etc. With the entry of the U.S., into the war the Nazis considered themselves free to ignore all consideration of any neutral power, and the Jews became free game. Prohibitions and interdicts came in quick progression. It was prohibited to leave the boundaries of the Jewish feeling of relief, knowing well that their haven had been broken into and could give them no protection from the killers. It is hard to describe my homecoming. Mother was trembling and couldn’t utter a sound. Father hugged me, mumbling the "Sheheianu" and mention-ing the name and title of God. My brothers and sisters ...

    ... of this fateful con-frontation. Overcome by fear he can do nothing. He completely loses his self-control, knocking the shofar on the table to clear the blockage, but it is useless. Satan, once he had gotten inside, refuses to budge. The congregation trembles, giving way to fear. The Gabbai feels it is time to interfere and signals; "Nu ! Ah !" to one of the youths who had long been waiting to be called to help. Quick as lightning he is there, before the "Ba’al toke’ah" should recover and regain control over the instrument. Confidently the youth takes the shofar in his hand, and Satan, who had been stuck inside it, been liberally spat on, squeezed and exhausted, gives in quickly and gets out. The shofar blasts like a war-trumpet and the congrega-tions is so relieved that it forgets that ...
