From Diet's personal journal - July 1941
Last night we walked past the synagogue. Horrible: on the doors was written with large letters “Jude Süss.” On the pillars a swastika and a large V and horribly drawn Jewish faces. In the street on the boarded-up shop windows, “Jew,” “Pest Jude.”
How long still, O Lord?
September 16, 1941
Yesterday the paper had a “short” summary of the places where Jews are not allowed! I can better mention where they are still allowed “in their homes and in the streets!” God, punish those who are persecuting the people You chose and to whom Jesus also belonged.
