    ... to push our way in. Julius lit a match and we observed a copper basin filled with oil and some cotton little candles swimming in the oil. We lit all these liny cotton candles, and Julius asked us to empty our pockets of all silver coins and placed same at the edge of the basin. Our chafTucr, the well known Kopcl Rosenberg, contributed the largest amount of the silver coins. We pulled the chain and closed the gates and left the shrine lighted up. We imagined how the sexton would feel when he opened the place later that morning and found it glowing with light and the silver coins, the red blanket, but not Bcril. The secretary of the Kibbutz, Zvi Neumann, also a Galitziancr landsman, (I believe he comes from Tlumach) at first invited us to have a bite and then directed us to walk to Mount ...

    ... and many froze to death. I felt as though I were a sieve through which the wind was blowing. The train brought us to Weimar, Goethe’s home-town near the Buchenwald concentration camp. (Bu-chenwald is more characteristic of the German people than Goethe). Upon arriving at the railway station we were treated to a splendid sight: 200 American bombers appeared in the clear skies, shining like silver birds in the sunlight. Flying low they released their long-shaped projectiles which exploded with ear* splitting bangs, causing havoc and destruction in the who area. In their panic our guards leaped from the trains to look for cover. We went out into the open fields, enjoying their predicament and the retribution rained upon them from "heaven" which was but a tithe of what they really ...

    ... Orient. Little boys of ten to twelve, stark naked, voluptuously recline like young wild animals, only their head of heavy coarse hair now and then bobbing up from the couch of green. Women, likewise crouching on the grass, look at us with suprem indifference. Their shining tresses end in chaplets of silver coins, evoking a vision of brilliantly decorated idols. Under a big tent is gravely reclining a handsome black divinity, radiant with silver coins. Her couch is a rug of violet coloring, forming a frame of sumptuous brightness. Blue spirals are rising from her pipe and seem to fascinate her like a dream. At her feet is a little girl of about six, who lights one of her mother’s pipes on the hearth fire and seems to derive in finite joy from it. It is a certain view of life which ...

    ... claimants that barred his passage. By the use of our shoulders and our elbows wc succeeded in breaking away from them. But at the gate of the castle another formidable attack awaited us. The whole synagogue was there, with the great rabbi in the lead, a marvelous Moses of Michael Angelo, whose head, crowned with a high fur bonnet, lost itself in a torrential beard, in which the waves of silver alternated with those of ebony. A long discussion took place; for the house of God was still unfinished, and if the visitor would but move his magic wand of gold, it would be built and all Busk would rejoice. I must admit that our friend did not strike me as a very fervent devotee at the altar of Jehovah. Nevertheless, it would have suprised me, if childhood memories and the natural feeling ...
