My mother's family.

My mother's family.

This picture was taken on the ship that brought my mother's family to America. As I mentioned in my speech, it was the last German boat that took Jews out of Germany, and my grandmother feared that the boat would turn around and take them back to Germany.In the foreground is my Aunt Lore, who was 8, then from left to right is my Opa Karl, my mother Hildegard, and my Oma Julchen. The looks on their faces speak for themselves.
