Sept. of 1967 , crossed from East Jerusalem to Mamilla park. Wanted to explore this new world and new people. Policeman on Vespa approached. Called to me in Hebrew. Did not respond because I did not understand. Slapped me across the face and told me to go back. That was the beginning of my understanding of hatred. I was only 10 years old.
