Erna Goldmann

I was 15 years old when this photo was taken in Frankfurt.

I attended a Zionist youth movement named “Blau-Weiß” [Blue-White].

This youth movement was just one of many Zionist groups back then; it was very well known at the time.

We didn’t go out to cafés, or to eat, we didn’t do that. We went hiking, we sang, and we talked a lot about Israel.

My life was never boring, because we were always together.

We went to the Frankfurt City-Forest with our bikes and we went to camp together. I still have some photos from back then. We met several times a week.
