Studio before January 1943
Therefore while I was in Cracow I did not give a second thought to this circle of persons. I had no idea what could happen in my studio and its attached basement during the following time.
In the time between the summer of 1942 and October 1942 (when I came to Munich for 10-12 days), my studio could not be entered by anyone other than Mr. Mayer, the janitor. During this time, I gave no one permission to hang around in my studio or to meet there.
