Since the advent of the Brownshirts, there was no protection either from a jackbooted invasion that left broken heads and windows in its wake. But here . . she thanked God for the German middle class. No bears here. They’d never get past Frau Schinkel. And there’d been at least one good thing from last night: she carried a healing memory of the concerned eyes of the policeman who’d sat City of Shadows 55 beside her on the stairs. A stranger, a man whose name she didn’t know, but kind. She wished she hadn’t had to lie to him.

He grinned at her. ” “That’s me,” she said. ” 2 The trouble was that the woman who was now Anna Anderson refused to leave Dalldorf. For three days she wouldn’t even desert the dugout of her bed. During their afternoon visits, Esther kept the other women of the ward at bay while Nick, cajoling in a whisper across the pillowed barricade, extolled the marvels that awaited his protégée in the outside world—without result.
Times being what they were, Frau Schinkel had to take what tenants she could get. It was a nice apartment, though Frau Schinkel’s furniture, like Frau Schinkel, was on the heavy side. Nick, it appeared, had already required the landlady to make it ready for instant habitation; the bathroom was equipped, and so were the kitchen and larder—a bright new samovar stood on a surface near the sink. The sitting room was three times the size of Esther’s bed-sit in Moabit, and as a joke—she hoped it was a joke—Nick had sent his hunting prints to decorate one of its walls.
