Knocking on door and fire
 In 1937, people in the Soviet Union were terrorized by mass arrests. Whole truck loads of people were taken to Siberia and never seen them again. In the middle of the night, there was a knock on the entrance to an apartment building. Everyone was absolutely quiet and pretended to sleep. The knocking got louder and   louder. Finally, they
heard someone trying to break down the door. An old man thought, 
"I am going to die soon anyway, what do I have to fear, I will answer
the door." He came running back, full of   joy and announced,
 "You can all come out, it is only a fire!"
