PART I - IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH
CHAPTER 17 - "LAZARUS, COME FORTH . . : "

wondering what kind of life awaited us. We hardly slept at all that night, but talked on and on about politics, old friends, those who had been freed before us and those who had passed on, until our great morning dawned. We had to fill out endless forms, and signed, almost automatically, whatever was thrust into our hands. We were taken to the comptroller's office, where we collected the balance of our earnings. One of the secretaries turned to me.
" Are you Jozsef Kovago?" she asked. "There is a message from your wife asking you to meet her at her friend's house downtown." My wife had a close friend in Budapest, with whom she always stayed when she came to the capital.
Finally we stood in front of the fat major, washed and shaved, wearing well-pressed suits, and feeling very handsome indeed. The major went through our personal data. As we were all married, he inquired whether our wives had waited for us. We replied that they had. We could see that he had something to say, and finally he blurted it out:
" My best advice to you is to forget about the time you spent here," he told us. "Maybe you were here without a reason; if so, it's not our fault. We only do our duty. When they told us to treat you badly, we treated you badly. When they told us to treat you well. . . ."
" This never happened," one of the prisoners interrupted, "you had no such problem to cope with."
" My, my," the major tried to laugh that off in an embarrassed way. "In any case, a new life is beginning for you, and I want to ask that if we ever meet outside, say, on the streetcar or in a bus, let's not look upon each other as enemies. We're all human and we all make mistakes. True, I wear this uniform, but still I don't regard myself as an evil man. Whatever I do, I do in good faith."
Bela could not control himself.
