This Is Too Hard

Feirstein, Irving
November 1954
New Republic;11/22/54, Vol. 131 Issue 21, p56
This article presents the author's experience of his visit to Italy. It was a fine tour with transportation, guides, food, everything arranged by Special Services, to a famous spot in Italy. There were about a hundred dirty, disheveled, smeary kids and women howling on the other side, with faces and arms stretched through the boards like monkeys. Try eating a meal out of a mess kit while on the other side of the barbed wire stands a barefoot, sloppy dirty mother with her bawling, nose-running infant in her arms, watching each spoonful travel from plate to mouth, from plate to mouth, from plate to mouth, from plate to mouth.
