Sroel the Tailor

Munye's bunker buddy who was held by Ukrainian nationalists

That week something wonderful happened when my old bunker buddy, Sroel the tailor, turned up on my doorstep. What a miracle! He had left our old bunker camp days before it was discovered, but later captured and held by a group of Banderovtsy. They had kept him with them in the forest, sewing clothes for the rebel fighters, but now he had escaped.

I told him that Tateh and Lonye were both away with the army, and that I was living here with the Peckers. Since Sroel had no place else to go, I invited him to join our living arrangement. 

So now I had become the big landlord, even though I wasn’t getting paid for it. Besides the Peckers, we had also taken in another single man who had lost his whole family. And now Sroel, too.
