Next year in Jerusalem

Wednesday, Mar 28, 1945

Mommy and Daddy tried all evening to call home and wish their parents good yontef. It’s the first night of Passover, the holiday that celebrates the liberation of the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt. And this year, more than a decade after Daddy fled Germany, the end of the nightmare for the Jews is in sight. The 3rd Army has advanced 27 miles in a triple break through. We’re only 10 miles from Essen on Ruhr while the Russians begin a major drive to Vienna. We’re advancing on Japan, too. At the end of every seder, Jews hopefully say, “Next year in Jerusalem.” Maybe 1946 will see that dream come true.
