“My father, already in August 1941, at the very beginning of the war, he came to the Pravda newspaper where one of his poems had to be published in Russian translation. The editor-in-chief of this newspaper said to him: ‘To publish you now is a question of high politics.’ And that was that. That was the beginning of antisemitism, I mean official antisemitism.” [Shimon Markish]
