On wartime antisemitism.

"One day, after I had carried out a dangerous and difficult combat assignment at the front, the commander of the regiment thanked me and said with a degree of surprise 'Are you really Abram?'

 ' No'  I responded 'My name is Solomon.'

 ' What  difference does that make? ' he muttered.

There was no sense in arguing with this covert antisemite."

(Solomon Skvirskii, God rozhdeniia 1917, Los Angeles, 1997, p. 10)
