Dr. Von Helsing was traveling by coach through Transylvania. The sun set just as he approached Vatra-Dornei castle. Suddenly, a bat flew in through the coach window and was transformed into a wild looking vampire dressed in a black frock coat with a long beard.

Afraid of being bitten, Von Helsing took a crucifix from his pocket and held it between him and the vampire.

The vampire looked at the cross, laughed and said, “Gornisht helfen.”*

*Yiddish for, “It wouldn’t help.”
