“The new decree is exceptional. No one was in a hurry to obey it, putting it off to the very last minute. The decree itself does not cause any physical pain, nor does it involve great expense… No! Better to shut oneself up at home for an entire year than to become a subject of mockery! Not to go out wearing a yellow badge on your clothes, a target for scorn, derision, humiliation.”
From Simcha Guterman, Leaves from the Ashes (Heb.)
