Letters from Dotnuva (cont.)




Translated by Sara Mages

Dotnuva 27 May, 1939

Dear Freida and Avraham,

Lately I wrote you a lot, there are always matters that cause you work and worries. As I wrote you, I came home for Shavuot to see what's happening here and what happened, and indeed, I found that the warehouses, which are in the yard, were burned. In short, since they contained goods there is a loss of several thousand. We were very pleased that our home still exists. Father is making plans to build some kind of a small warehouse.

In general, father would have liked to travel from here to Eretz-Yisrael to live a quieter life, but mother is afraid that they won't be able to support themselves in Eretz-Yisrael. I also advise them to leave Dotnuva and travel to Eretz-Yisrael. We can support them. I will also write to the girls in Israel and ask their opinion about it.

There's nothing new by me, the school year is ending and also the exams are nearly over.

I'm thinking of working in one of the estates during the days of my vacation, it will be useful for me professionally, and apart from that, I'll probably have to submit a certificate to the consulate that I work in my profession. I can get such a certificate from the estate owner.

Well, be healthy and happy.
Yours, Moshe
