Communicating with Husband

Um, you were saying that there were other incidences you remember, you know, during the time you were in hiding. Were there other anti-Semitic incidents or other close calls that you had? Or, uh...

Close calls, that was close call when I had a drink with the officer and he asked me questions. But we overcomed that, overcame?


And my son too.

And you heard from your husband off and on during this time?

He passed by that village by, with the truck, I told you he went with the truck. He passed by everyday and we used to go down and stand in front of the inn just to see him, we couldn't speak to him. And sometimes he dropped a, a piece of paper and we picked it up and there was a message on it or something. And we, we, we communicated. We knew where, how he was.
