Pumpernickel and Salami – Treats

Sunday, Aug 6, 1944

Mommy has a new routine. She got hold of a used typewriter and now produces a letter 1944_DC typing_Aprhome almost every day. Last night another cousin of Daddy’s came by with her boyfriend, a nice young Lieutenant, who presented us with treats: a pumpernickel and a salami. There will be good eating today. There will be cheering, too, at the news that almost a thousand refugees from 19 Eastern European countries have arrived at Fort Ontario. The Russians are rolling up Nazi positions as they surge west from the Vistula River. Each new outpost liberates Slavs, Roma, and Jews who would have been exterminated in death camps or worked to death in slave labor camps.
