The Great Depression Diary of Sally Cohen, Toronto, Ontario, 1932
March 28, 1933 - This morning in school one of the goyishe girls, Angelina, fainted right in the middle of History. She just keeled over and fell on the floor, Afterwards, she told Miss Douglas it was probably because she was hungry, because it was her turn to miss breakfast this morning. She said someone in her family always has to miss it because there isn't enough for them all.
I feel so sorry for Angelina. We may not have much, but at least there's always a little bit for everyone.
