Sonia Nothman - January 4, 1983


Is there anything that happens here that you see here that reminds you particularly of what happened there?

Oh, sometimes uh, if uh, I hear the government is cut off the thing ??? I thought after a war like this, especially American people that, shouldn't be. I'm disappointed in many things, many things. But I guess uh, I see in every country. In Latin American people are dying uh, fighting and this. I just don't like it that everything is a dollar. The main thing. The main problem is the money. And people should learn by now what it is.

Does it bother you to discuss your feelings with, what happened to you with other people? Do you mind talking about it?

No, I don't mind. I'd rather talk. Uh-huh. I don't know. I'd rather talk. I talked to a friend of mine today and I asked her. No, she never, no. She can't. She wondered, how could you do it. I said, "I'd rather talk. When I see a movie, when I see a program, I..." Listen. It's real, it's real.
