Scope and Contents
Martin writes from Prague to his son, who is in Paris, telling him he had hoped to speak to him in person soon, but he had
not been successful in gaining entry into France. He writes that out of every 100 visa requests in France, only one is granted.
Martin will travel the next day to Switzerland for eight days. Martin explains his options for emigration: central America
and South America. However, he explains that it is very difficult to emigrate, and that these trips are more easily arranged
from Paris or London. He asks his son to help him get to one of these locations if he can. He informs Klaus about their acquaintances,
who are also planning their exodus. He ends by expressing a certain doggedness in the face of adversity, making the point
that he will not leave with his head hanging. He maintains that life must still be cheerful, and one must do what he can.
