In the year 1905, 2000 Jewish children with 5 adults left the country where they were persecuted, and they sailed to an abandoned island in the North Pacific Ocean. They lived happily, till a... More > dictator with the help of 14 armed criminals, invaded the island and held the population captive. The dictator kept the children from being educated. He destroyed all their Jewish books and forced them to abandon their Jewish customs --- once again subjects of religious persecution.

Many miners came down with radiation poisoning, and several died. Then, a ten year-old boy was crippled by a runaway ore car and a wise man helped him to sue the dictator.

The dictator was shocked that his guards offered no resistance.< Less

Between these two extremes—which have alike doomed Jews to the unhappiest of careers—a normal people, with all the faults and virtues of humanity, has pursued its normal course through history, however abnormal were the conditions against which it struggled.< Less
