He belonged to one, I to another, and there was a friendly rivalry between us.
Everyone had a nickname. Being short of stature, his was Zwerg dwarf. But there was nothing derisive in this. He was not that tiny and was in fact rather popular, a very lively, nice boy, pleasant to talk to and to work with.

The movement to which we belonged was more German than Jewish, but this was true for much of German Jewry at the time. This organization was not political; we were far more interested in camping and hiking than in intellectual, let alone spiritual, preoccupations.
Some of us became Zionists; others discovered their religious identity. After a short time he was arrested and returned to Nazi Germany, in fact handed over to the Gestapo. He was head of the local Jewish hospital, and it had been Gestapo policy to liquidate Jewish hospitals last. Had this very German Jew lived a few more decades he would have been surprised to learn that one of his granddaughters was to become the biographer of Isaac Bashevis Singer while another would marry a young man from Yemen. We rented the hayloft belonging to a local peasant; to this day I wonder how we survived the icy nights.
Recently, I received a call from members of the U. It had come to their knowledge that we had been helping people who were in political trouble in Nazi Germany to escape the Reich by evading border controls. Was it true? It was true, up to a point.

As groups we were not involved; we were too young to engage in political militancy. But individuals among us did assist in such escapes, and I remember one girl who paid with her life for this. I do not recall when I last saw Hans Fabisch. In the years that followed, during the war and after, I met many members of his group in various parts of the world, often unexpectedly. But there was no word from or about him. I met his older sister, Ilse Meyer, who lived not far from our apartment in North London. It was banned by the Gestapo as early as She knew that before the war he had trained as an agriculturist together with a group of young people on a farm near Breslau but had switched over to a school where he could study chemistry.
After that, there had been occasional letters from Berlin, which had to be carefully worded because they were sent by way of neutral countries and subject to careful censorship in more than one country.
She had no information at all about his last months or the date, place, and circumstances of his death. Eventually, however, the mystery was cleared up. Following the publication of my book Generation Exodus in , which told the story of young people from the German-speaking communities of Central Europe who fled from the Nazis, many survivors of this generation contacted me.
One of them was Ernest Fontheim, a senior researcher in space science at the University of Michigan. He related to me in considerable detail events as he witnessed them in wartime Berlin. I put him in touch with Ilse, who found out from him what had happened to her brother. Since Jews were almost completely barred from the practice of medicine, she worked as a nurse except when one of the non-Jewish doctors went on holiday or fell ill. The letters Valy wrote to Karl make painful reading.
She was very much in love and hoped that the separation would be of short duration. She had expected that he would do everything possible to help her to join him in the United States. It was this love that kept her going. There were periods of depression, and they became more frequent as time went by. But she tried to keep up a brave front. She practiced as frequently as she could, so that she would be a more accomplished player when the two of them were again reunited.
Darling, I want so badly to say to you how I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart. I yearn to tell you finally everything that is written only on paper, so dead, so empty and so boring. How I wish I could see you, behold your dear face. But for long periods there was no reply from Karl. What had happened? Had he deserted or forgotten her? October Beloved, I knew that I could believe in you.
Once, many years ago we were walking through the Prater, it was in October and you recited the Oktoberlied [a poem by Theodor Storm] for me, about the overcast day which we wanted to make golden.

We were happy then or at least I was. With you I never was quite sure how things were.
