On a bench in front of the Carlton

Image

This picture was taken in 1933 or 1934, on a bench in front of the Carlton Hotel in Bratislava. It shows me, Henrich, and one of our neighbors. I don't remember her name anymore.

When I was very young, my parents registered me in nursery school. I don't remember much from this time either. The nursery school was on Venturska Street. Tante [Aunt] Ruth was in charge of us. We used to go to nursery school with these little baskets that hung from our necks, which contained our snack for teatime. We used to play with plasticine, and I hid a piece of it in that basket. Later, when I was hungry, instead of bread I took a bite of the plasticine. Memories like these are the tiny little pearls hidden in the human brain.
