The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

Poland


"Still, the lines seemed endless. One either waited and waited for bread, for water, for toilet facilities...or waited in line to be buried. Such disaster brings out the best, the worst, and the dark humor in people. The sight shocked our teacher, Reb Mottel. Over and over again he would say, 'You see this line for bread...people want to be first. You see that line of the dying and the dead...people want to be last!'"  (Abram Korn, Abe's Story: A Holocaust Memoir. Atlanta: Lonstreet Press, 1995. p. 26)
