Then I saw the warehouses, unfinished barracks, filled with carefully sorted articles of clothing— suits, dresses, shoes of little girls and women, gloves, trinkets, face cream, nail files, clgaret lighters and fountain pens. An inventory dated March 21. lfl-13, was a detailed list of nearly FiiiO.OOn items carefully noted hy the storehouse manager.
