      Domácí společensví ignorovala fakt, že nová moc, opřená o Sověty, likvidovala místní i náboženské židovské instituce, a že většina Židů byla daleka toho, aby podporovala komunismus – „hlasovali nohama“ a emigrovali na Západ.
      The communities at home ignored the fact that the new power, supported by the Soviet Union, was destroying local and religious Jewish institutions, and that most of the Jews were far from supporting communism – they “voted with their feet” and emigrated to the West.
