    ... as a writing table we will write down what we have to say. In Hebrew in the book "People and Dust — The Auschwltz-Blrkenau Book" by Y. Gutman, researcher of the Holocaust.

Skladkovsky, at that time Prime Min-ister, put it thus : "An economic campaign against the Jews — why not ?

The waiting list lengthened and chances of re-ceiving a permit lessened accordingly. The notorious quota was a major subject of conversation. Every effort was made to get around it but with small sue-cess. For us, the children, listening to the grown-ups’ discussions, this "kvote" appeared in the guise of a monster surrounded by people in acute distress, all begging it to save them while it pushed them cruelly away, letting them drown in their sorrows.
