About 10am, a Jew from Kielce was passing by, saying that from today there will be a Jewish quarter in Kielce. I took this sad news to heart so much that I did not know what was happening to me for the whole day. Even, on the same day, the Jews who had some relatives outside the area of the quarter, left Kielce and went to their relatives. We have almost entire family in Kielce, what are they going to do now. And drastically quickly, there will be high prices as it is in other cities where there are quarters.
