Letters from Dotnuva (cont.)



Translated by Sara Mages

Dotnuva, 30.9.36  

Hello Freidale!

Well, this shocking incident really happened. She died suddenly in a quick and merciless way. This way it is a little abnormal, but the pain itself is both natural and necessary.

What can we do? This is a great loss for all of us. She is no longer with us. We had the opportunity to know her not only for her deeds across the ocean, but also for her majestic appearance and her soul. Her memory will remain in our hearts forever.

I can imagine how this incident affected you, but you have to grasp the world in a more natural and realistic way. Look around you and see how people in the big world react to such matters, and then, you'll be one of them.

Our concept is a small-town concept, fundamentally disrupted, and in the light of life around, you'll be convinced that there is too much unnecessary melancholy and sentiments in them.

The things that I'm writing to him about our mother never happened, but there is no other way. She isn't worse since you left us

Be healthy and happy. Now that you entered your new life, you have to go full of energy and joy towards them, and woe to you if you fall into this great mistake.

With hope and energy for life.

Shalom. Shalom to you.
Yours, Moshe
