    "Will I forever be behind this barbed wire? Will it forever be written on the sign 'Place of Jews'? Will there always be a guard box here with a German soldier with a weapon on his shoulder? Was it always like this? But who will survive to see the end? How I long for freedom."

    - "Diary of a youth in the ghetto," May 14, 1942
