At the age of seven I knew already that we're different from our neighbours. We lived in Karlsbad, where I was also born.
It was Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles) and my Papa had just been busy making a "Sukka" in the yard of the house where we lived and where my parents had a big kosher restaurant. When all of a sudden, stones were thrown from the neighbours' windows. I was terribly scared and asked Papa why they did this to us. He said only softly " Because we are Jews". That was in the year 1937.
We stayed for another two years in Karlsbad, after which we had to flee from the Germans to Prague. Once in Prague, we had to wear the yellow Star of David and we were not allowed to leave our homes after 8 p.m., while we could ride only in the last carriage of the tramway, since the first ones were "Not allowed for Jews".
Many houses bore captions in large letters: " Do not buy in Jewish shops" or "Jews get out". Instinctively I didn't want to know anything about it and that's why my teddy bear was my best friend. My elder sister Esther had once brought it to me from Leipzig, while I possessed plenty of dolls - 28 precisely. I really used to be an extremely playful child.
One day, when I was eleven and a half years old, Mama received a printed summon, instructing us to appear at Prague's Exhibition Halls, in order to join a "transport" (i.e. the actual deportation convoy of human beings to the concentration camps) which would drag us into the unknown.
