George Salton interview by Dr. Carolyn Ellis

GS: Jewish people who had stores, the stores were closed or transferred to other ownership and Jewish people that worked, like my father or some were teachers were no longer allowed to work. Terrible oppression in this little town, still it was in a town that was our town, we still—they took most away of our rooms and our apartments, it was still something we recognized. We are still with our families, and Christian neighbors who lived next-door, Christian neighbors that we knew for many years and there was still some degree, some reason to believe that if we persevere, somehow we may survive.
