A friend of my mother, who survived the Holocaust by posing as a Pole, came close to inadvertently revealing herself by the way she mopped the floor.
Working as a cleaning woman in Nazi headquarters, she would mop the room from the far corner to the door so that she would not have to walk back over the newly cleaned floor. When her fellow cleaning women, who were used to mopping themselves into a corner, noticed this, they exclaimed, ``Oh Wanda, you work just like a Jew."
