This is Mrs. Kopska, our cook. The photo was taken sometime during the 1930s and I think that it wasn't somewhere in Prague, but somewhere out in the country. Mrs. Kopska, the same as my family, from the Caslava area, when she was young she already worked as a servant for my grandfather, Alois Brod.
Mrs. Kopska helped us a lot during the war. Because she was a Christian, she could under her name rent an apartment in which we then also lived, we didn't have to crowd together with several other families in the ghetto in the Old Town.
