    ... a girl came running to tell him that there were many dogs like us wandering in the vicinity. He promised to take care of it. I was in a state of shock. During my stay in the camps I had become thick-skinned and was indiffe-rent to all the "linguistic pearls" hurled at me by the Nazis. But now, perhaps because I had sensed the smell of freedom, it was no longer so. How could a common village girl, not serving in an extermination unit, at a moment when the downfall of the monster regime was an imminent fact, be so lacking in any human feeling upon seeing these exhausted, frightened people that, instead of giving them a slice of bread she could call them pariah dogs? When she left the soldier turned to me : "I know you are expecting the Americans. I, too. am sick of the whole business ...

What they feared was mutual bombings, poison gas and fighting in the areas close to the borders, followed by shellings and some penetration of enemy forces. No one dreamed that Poland would crumble within a few days, to be swallowed up by the German monster. The sequel is well known.

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. Candidates for emigration told many stories about people who were about to leave for America but, be-fore receiving their papers, were called to the Con-sulate for interrogation. They were asked all kinds ...
