|"I was terrified for my parents, but also angry at them. I hated seeing them
running and hiding. I wanted to forget my father running like a thief up the
stairs, fork, knife, and plate in hand, or hiding under the table. I hated
that they, the adults, were as powerless as I was." |
|--Ruth Jacobsen, Rescued Images: Memories of a Childhood in Hiding. (Mikaya, 2001)|
