“Save one million Jews! And to do what with them? Where will we put them?” Third in a series by Joćo Bernardo : see here for parts one and two . I mentioned in the previous article that, during the time of the German-Soviet Pact, the Polish Jews that managed to escape from the Nazi-occupied areas of Poland to the areas occupied by the Red Army were deported or put in concentration camps, a sad fate, but at least they were accepted and nobody ever sent them back across th

So things are still very boring around here. We are now allowed to travel as long as we don't go through Tegucigalpa, the capital. Too bad we have to pass through there to go almost anywhere...
