    What stands out most, in these letters is the lack of realisation of ordinary Jews of the true nature of Anti-Semitism. The craftman Hertz, feeling the cold wind of the economic boycott, wrote an honest to goodness letter to Hitler, in the hope that, he may feel some compassion or understanding of his plight. There must have been millions of similar letters from Jews in the archive. It shows just how hard it is to grasp the fact that they just wanted you dead and then to take your property. No ifs and buts. Even though the writing was on every wall in Germany they lived in denial. The fact that you were a decent person and lived a decent life made no difference to them. The average mind is not capable of taking this in.
