Black Pearls
   One of the most precious commodities in the ghettos was fuel. Families would descend on vacant buildings and tear them apart looking for any substance that would keep them warm. Coal was the most sought after of the fuel commodities and scarce enough in the ghetto to be referred to as “black pearls.”
