Tosca was playing. Caruso was singing E Lucevan le stelle. She turned up the volume to its maximum.

She sat at her desk and took out her writing papers. Her trembling hands could hardly hold her pen straight. She lit a cigarette. She had to write to Károly and tell him everything about her relationship with Rudi. Öcsi would understand; he would help Rudi; he would protect him and save him. He was strong. He now worked at the Swedish Legation and definitely had good connections. He would find a way. Perhaps they would all come over, flee from that inferno. “Istanbul, 20th March 1944,” she started to write.
