This is my class from the Jewish kindergarten in Belgrade. I am in the back row with the white bow in my hair. My sister Breda is in the front row on the left. This was the kindergarten and I cannot remember who was who any more. The photo was taken in the early 1930s. My sister and I went to the same school, but she was younger than me. We went to the Jewish kindergarten. I cannot remember where it was. In general I remember that we went there. I don't remember the teachers. I don't remember anyone from there. I don't know if there was a Jewish school. We were not in any Jewish organizations; we were too little.
