Translation


All is quiet in the dormitory. For a place usually bustling with activity all day, such quiet us unusual. Even the charcoal and pencil drawings on the walls done by the school "artists" look down somehow dejectedly.
At that moment there is a commotion in the mess hall. In the dim reddish light of an electric lamp the students are served tin bowls of soup through a small window.

—SAGIT AGISH, The Foundation
