Liese! " My own scream wakes me. I lie in the dark. Waiting.
I'm on the street. The sun is on my face. There is no star on my chest. I'm free for another hour. One more hour. The whole world feels strange around me: pin-sharp and beautiful. Without my star I get no pitying looks. I've forgotten what it's like not to be noticed. I stop. I drink from a fountain. Mutti would be horrified. I could be arrested, killed, sent away if I was found out. A Jew, drinking from a fountain! I could infect all the non-Jews, but with what? What is it we've got that's so evil?
If I don't fight back, then I'm exactly what they say I am—a cowardly Jew-boy. I don't exist anymore. They've turned me into a nobody so that they can wipe me off the face of the earth. It feels so obvious to me now. I can't believe I didn't see it before. How did I miss it? How did I ever think I could escape? How did I ever think I could fight? I should leave now. It's time. I find a satchel and a spare jacket with a star sewn onto it, but then at the last minute I decide not to wear it. If this is my last walk through the city I'm going to do it free—as me—and if anything happens, if they find me—then let them.
