15th March 1941

The resettlement commission has sent us 100 bunks. TOZ [Society for the Protection of Jewish Health] assigned to our spot a doctor and a nurse, who after general inspection said there were several cases of typhus, general pediculosis, scabies and general weakness caused by hunger. They ordered a bath and enforced quarantine for the rooms where typhoid had occurred. We have no medication. The patronage began today nutrition action. They sent us today a piece of bread (7 grams) and coffee (very weak) for each refugee and for dinner rather thin soup.
