This is the last birthday party of my school friend Sonny Mogendorff. She is seated second from the right. Her little brother Bertie is sitting beside her. To Sonny’s left is Tamara Groen, who made it to America with her parents just in time, as did her cousin Myra Stein, who’s on the very left.
I’m sitting to the left of Tamara and, like all the other girls in the picture, was allowed to continue living because I wasn’t Jewish...
I’m pleased that I can at least record the names of my dear friend and her brother.
