Rosel Cohn was a Jewish classmate of ours, but I did not really connect her with ‘the Jews’. Those Jews were and remained something mysteriously menacing and anonymous. They were not the sum of all Jewish individuals, who included yourself or old Herr Lewy: they were an evil power, something with the attributes of a spook. One could not see it, but it was there, an active force for evil.
