United States, California,
June 6, 1942. We gather every Sabbath, a group of activists in the Jewish community, to discuss our diaries and writings. We want our sufferings//to be impressed upon the memories of future generations and on the memory of the whole world.
Wednesday 22 July 1942 – The Day Before Tishebov
A day of turmoil, chaos and fear, the news about the expulsion of Jews is spreading like lightning through the town//
Friday 24 July 1942
Jews are running as if insane, with children and bundles of bedding. Buildings // are being
surrounded. Mothers and children wander around like lost sheep – where is my child? Weeping.
Eclipse of the sun, universal blackness. My (wife) Luba was taken away during a blockade on 30 Gesia Street. // It looks like she was taken directly into the train. Her fate is to be a victim of the Nazi bestiality, along with hundreds of thousands of Jews. // Ora – her calamity. A child who was so tied to her mother, and how she loved her. The “action” goes on in the town at full throttle. All the streets are being emptied of their occupants. Total chaos. Terror and blackness. And over all this disaster hangs my own private anguish.
