I do not know what most of the Jews knew in 1900.
 I wasnt around at that time.
  But since then the German got even much worse.
   German was only taught in private schools
  whiche only well- to- dos could afford.
         The rest was a homespun German,
 deteriorating with every passing day.

      Into this German I was born.
       Schiller - fine.Busch -fine.
       But the colloquial street German was atrocious.
