This chapter presents the text of Lamed Shapiro's short fiction titled The Cross. The plot of this work is about the blind, crazy, force that makes a mockery of man and makes a mere game of his desire. This chapter explains that this was Shapiro's attempt to confront the pogrom not as something utterly counter to Jewish experience “but as a form of energy that would have to be assimilated if Jews were ever to escape its fury”.
