This morning a Lithuanian family (father, mother, two kids) arrived in the hotel. They went straight to the swimming pool.
I was reading Sem Dresden’s book on the extermination of the Jews and literature.
After an hour or so I went swimming with my companion.
In the water I said to her: “The Lithuanian lady is looking at me all the time. I’m not saying this to make you jealous, just to let you know from what direction the danger is coming.” My companion looked at me and she answered: “You are nuts. Am I the first one to tell you this?”
