Ema Panovova with Lieselotte Burger

This is a picture of me and my cousin Lieselotte in the backyard of our house in Holic. The photo was taken in 1928.

My mother’s second husband, Doctor Panov, adopted me and brought me up. He saved my life because with the help of his colleague doctors he proved at court that I was his daughter and that I was the child of a Jewish mother and a Christian father.

My cousin Lieselotte managed to survived the Holocaust. She emigrated to America in the last moment.
