Panic-stricken, I ran towards a road. To my right a horse lay dying, beside which was a man, a woman and three children. They must have been the victims of a direct hit as they were all badly injured, two of them having had their legs blown off in the blast. A terrible fear overcame me. I changed direction, and once again started running towards my cousin’s house when suddenly everything went quiet. Their mission apparently over, we watched as the planes turned and flew away. By now my parents had spotted me from a distance.
There was Sala, Bluma and Genia Judkiewiecz and their parents, and also my uncles Pesach, Moshe, Natal and their families. I could see the Judkiewieczs coming out of their house and climbing into their own droshke - hansom cab - with their few possessions. With them having such a large family to take, there was no room for us. We said our goodbyes and hoped that with God’s help we would see each other soon. Then we parted. We started walking towards the bridge that spanned the river. At this time all was quiet.
