Breathe hard and reach around me feeling for a stone, a twig, anything I can throw at her window to wake her. But something stops me. I listen. The streets are silent. There's no sound. That means the engines stopped. I stand completely still. Did they see me? Are they searching through the streets right now, listening, waiting for me to give myself away—to make a sound? Into the silence comes a banging, a crashing of fists on the door and voices shouting. "Open up! " I stand in the garden, frozen.
But there aren't any—only flatlands. We've already fled from Germany to here. And now we're surrounded. The Nazis are everywhere: Luxembourg, Belgium, France. Holland is just a small pocket in a whole coat made of Nazis. There is nowhere else for us to run. I stare at the doors. I feel sick. I feel the sun hot on my back. I turn and look down the street. I shouldn't be doing this, I shouldn't be doing anything that draws attention to me—but I can't help it. I turn and look down the long, narrow street.
I wait and watch the world come to life. I wait knowing that I'm not running anywhere because there's nowhere to run to. I look out the window. The world I can see isn't my world anymore—it's theirs: the National Socialist German Workers' Party's—the Nazis'. They've taken it away from me—piece by piece. I can't ride in trams or cars like everybody else. I can't swim in the same water or sit and watch films in the same cinema. I can't shop in gentile shops. I can't sit in the street. I can't drink from the water fountains.
