Our relief was temporary. After a year of warmth and safe comfort here, the Vichy regime in France took over Morocco and brought the policies of the Nazis to the area. Once again, we are required to wear yellow stars to subject us to humiliation and random beatings. We are not allowed to make a living or send our children to school. We are bullied and tormented. Some Jews have even been sent to concentration camps in the desert, where they have been tortured. We thank the King of Morocco who is trying to stop this Nazi brutality, but he is being overwhelmed by the Vichy thugs.
