29 January 1943

Churchill and Roosevelt have met again at Casablanca. And none of their men sees how Stalin is playing with them, how they are the victims of the most tragic farce in the history of the world: the Red assassins--who, in comparison with other political assassins, have the merit of operating on a large scale, in the millions--the Red assassins are awaited as the liberators of Europe . . . p. 67

"[...] nu ma sperie ceva care se va intimpla in viitor (moartea) sau se petrece in prezent (trecerea) atit cit ma ingrozeste ceea ce nu se va mai repeta. Atunci realizez conditia umana; tragedia, religia, sinuciderea, dementa - tot atunci le inteleg."
