Anti-Semitism Before the War

Did you experience any anti-Semitism before the war?

Yes. Yeah, I did.

Do you recall specific incidents?

Uh, not with me. You know, because, you know, they say in Polish um, a phrase. Every Pole, had their own Jew like. So I was the one that was their neighbor and I came to their house. But, it was, you know, they didn't like it, I remember signs, "don't buy by Jews" or you know, things like that, you know.
