Rated "G" by the Author.

Jews are being rounded up daily, to go to work camps, but rumors abound these are not merely work camps, they are places you are sent to be murdered. I pray daily that we will not be sent, that somehow we will get away from this hell.

 

Sept.1940

We Jews are a proud people, but now we are forced to live like dogs, fighting for our very survival, we were marched off to Lodz, like a pack of animals, fighing simply for a bite to eat.  We eat things now we would never end before the Ghetto, before Lodz.

Jews are being rounded up daily, to go to work camps, but rumors abound these are not merely work camps, they are places you are sent to be murdered.  I pray daily that we will not be sent, that somehow we will get away from this hell.

I would rather die here, than in one of those place, this is bad enough, but the camps, they are like Hell, hot and firery hell. 

I want my family to be safe I want this horrible thing to end.

I wish at times, I had been born an Aryan Christian, but I do not want to have the hate of a man like Hitler filling me.  I think Hitler is the one who needs to be put in one of his camps.

I watch daily as children are marched to their deaths, I worry for myself I worry for Marguette.  I know Marguette could not survive long at a camp, she has always been frail.

I wish they would march Hilter to one of the camps, and put him in one of those death showers, I have heard rumors about.

Somehow I know they are much more than rumors though.

I pray daily for this hell to end, I miss school. I miss life outside of the Lodz Ghetto I miss my friends, my pets.

I thank God I have Marguette.  She is two years my senior, but I must protect her, as she is weak.  I must do what I can to make sure that Marguette does not get marched off to one of those camps.

I will go in her place if I have to.  I will die for my sister if I have to.  I just wish the monsters would let her be.

I see the way the guards look at her with hungry eyes.

I hear the whispers.  I know what they want to do to my sister.

Batia~
