I immediately started packing everything I wanted to take with me to Palestine, including a torsion balance for assessing transpiration and Huber's apparatus for measuring photosynthesis in the field.
This was part of a military road he built on the banks of the Danube in order to protect Moesia, one of the distant Roman provinces (today Rumania and Bulgaria) against constant attacks by the Barbarian tribes. The road had to go through the Iron Gates which were unnavigatable at the time due to the torrential rapids. Trajan overcame this obstacle by having large square holes made in the rock, into which thick beams, which were then covered by wooden planks, were driven. This road hanging in mid-air over the turbulent rapids of the Danube was a true masterpiece of Roman road-building.

Sometimes, the discussions, particularly concerning their attraction to Nazism, which I considered to be the incarnation of evil, were very heated. Since I had read Hitler's book Mein Kampf (16), I considered in 1931 Hitler's becoming leader of Germany to be a strong possibility. However, most people who were aware of Hitler's rise did not read this "Bible of Nazism," and had they done so, would have considered it to be gibberish.
