“All of the Germans that lived in my hometown [Lodz, Poland], many of them who were friends of my parents before the war, all of a sudden were even scared to talk to us and avoided us.” -- Holocaust Survivor Walter Kase
“The churches basically preached that the Jews killed Christ, and they got the parishioners ready at the churches to hate us or whatever they could do to attack us.” -- Holocaust Survivor Bill Morgan
“I remember wearing my star on the front and on the back, and I was approaching two boys who were wearing the Hitler Jugend [Youth] bands, German boys with the swastikas on their arms, and I was crossing the street facing them; and when I passed them, one of them picked up a rock and threw the rock and hit me in the head, and I went running home crying that I didn’t do anything wrong, that I just walked by there, and why would somebody hit me with a rock? And my parents – my mother explained to me at that time how things were going to be, that when I see them I should step off the street.” -- Holocaust Survivor Walter Kase
“We were perhaps a group of Jewish kids that went to school. And during the religious hours, they had a Catholic religious hour, we stayed out, naturally, and I recall when the bell rang and they were out of the religious hour, they attacked us constantly. We dreaded to see that religious hour because we knew we had to be on our feet then and run.”
-- Holocaust Survivor Bill Morgan
