It was in 1943 after the Kursk battle and the front line was moving closer.
  The peasants were avoiding the town and the usual street trade was down.
   There was nothing to eat.
    We get up in the morning and there is no milk so the usual cocoa is out.
     All thats left are onions. We chop onions into little cubes.
      We pour some black market sunflower oil and a lot of salt on it.
      All this is mixed . Delicious !
        Is there some bread left ? Bread is rationed and
     we get our daily portion. We drink some chickory without sugar.
         We take some sweets instead.
          The daily " Zukerke " .
            Keep it in the mouth while drinking.
          We also Aroma artificial tea we dont like.
                    The Germans have lost the Kursk battle.
          The newspapers write that they have shortened the front line,
             Shorter front line is very good for the Jews.
