    It was wonderful to see people again whom I knew, but didn’t exactly remember how they looked, especially when they were younger. This not only includes the Rosenberg parents, but also my relatives Gusty and Ernest Mohr and my parents’ good friends, the Bendits.

    Thank you Edgar & Harry!
    Love, Margarete
