In the years since Hitler came to power each day brought fresh troubles to the Jews as well as to anyone who hesitated to follow the Nazi dictates. Anita remembered the day news of President von Hindenburg's death came over the wireless, Mutti used to talk about the aged president as the only shield between Hitler and the Jews. When the president died in 1934, all possible opposition to Hitler died with him. Anita went into her corner with Teddy and prayed a phrase she had heard at Mass. "Cover us with the shadow of your hand, Father." She loved the thought of curling into her corner, covered with the hand of God. Each new crisis seemed to be followed by a period of relative calm. Anita often wondered how life could go on despite all the upheaval, but it did. Some days they almost forgot the doom that hung over the land. When Anita head she passed the exams and had full scholarship to Bethany Lutheran School, she had to keep herself from dancing down the street.
