This chapter continues the discussion of the relocation of the Czernowitz Jews, beginning by discussing the historical significance of the Pruth River, as it served as a symbolic border for the Bukowina Jews. It then relates the atmosphere that enveloped Bukowina after the war ended and the liberation of Chernovtsy, and then studies the sense of blockage in 1944 and 1945, determining whether it led to feelings of hopelessness among the Czernowitz Jews. Finally, the chapter narrates the travels of the Jews from Southern Bukowina to Romania.
