Diary of Moshe Borger – page 11
in front of the premises during "Oneg". 6-17 Monotony 17. I wrote another letter to R…i 18. I found out on my own skin that although a person is good, noble and kindly disposed towards someone, he always likes and has the satisfaction of seeing someone in oppression (not heavy, of course) or by making fun of someone. 29. On the first day, "Chal Moejd"38 I went with my friends to Radomyśl. In Radomyśl I was walking with E…a39. During the walk we forgave each other's sins and promised further friendship. On my way to Radomyśl I could not imagine that my old feeling for E…i would resonate with me to such an extent… and it spoke strongly, as soon as I saw her my heart beat faster, the feeling spoke. Apparently it's true that "Old _ _ _ is rusting"40 30. Impressed by the meeting with E…a, no letters from R…i, and being angry with Bl…e (I will write about it later) I decided to stop with pseudo-romance, and when there is an opportunity to go to E…i. Now I am breaking up with Blima (but I am staying a friend) because I found out that she likes Asher practically, while wanting to flatter me, she talks to me about him, secondly - she is a gossip and does not keep my words secret. Incidentally, I want to write that though
38. This is Pesach Chol ha-Moed Day 1 / פֶּסַח חוֹל הַמוֹעֵד יוֹם א׳ (first “intermediate” day during the festival of Passover), the occurrence of which exactly coincides with Moshe’s diary entry of March 29, 1937 (17 Nisan 5697)
39. Esther Hand – see note 16.
40. A version of “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”?
