I used to think that the man in the black coat and top hat on those neighborhood watch signs was a real person. I used to avoid looking out the living room window in fear that he’d be there outside spying on me.

When I was a little girl I learned about the Holocaust. I was probably too young to know about these horrors because sometimes I couldn't get the images out of my head. I knew that people had been killed in gas chambers and didn't realize there are different types of gas. When we would go to the gas station and dad would put gasoline in the car, I would try to hold my breath the whole time - but I could never do it. I thought my dad was very brave to put the gas in our car. I thought that gas station workers were extremely brave to be doing their jobs. I assumed that because they were exposed to gas for long amounts of time that they didn't live long.
