After liberation I stayed on a kibbutz, which had been set-up on a German farm near Munich
. It was run by a Zionist organization. There were about fifty people on the kibbutz
, many of them from my home town in Carpathia. We tried to get to Israel in June 1945 but were arrested crossing the Alps from Austria into Italy. About two weeks later we were taken back to where we had started. Later, we made it to Italy, where we spent a short time in Rivoli
, near Torino
. From there we went to a displaced persons camp
, where Miriam and I stayed for about a year and one half.
