So it came that we
had to vacate the ghetto and move into a huge empty ditch by the
brick yards, under God's wide open skies. After collecting our
belongings into a bag, which became smaller and smaller each time we
were taken to our next destination, we were led to the brick yards by
the police. We knew that we'd be there only for a few days. That's
because our Hungarian "compatriots" were vile enough to hand over the
children and elderly to the Gestapo, even though the Germans only
asked for the young and mature population from the ghetto.
In a lot of ways the
Hungarians behaved much more despicably than the Germans. They
happily got rid of the children and old people too, proclaiming that
they would deny food from them anyway....
