Rafael Goldmann

Auf diesem Foto ist Rafael ein Jahr alt. Er war ein süßes Kind mit blonden Locken.

Rafi ist nach der Schule sofort ins Plastik Geschäft meines Mannes eingestiegen, er wollte nichts anderes machen.

Wir haben das Geschäft auch heute noch, aber es geht nicht mehr gut. Es hat sich sehr viel verändert, denn es gibt sehr viel Konkurrenz.

Alles wird in China gekauft, alles ist billig.

Rafi ist heute 59 Jahre alt. Er wohnt mit seiner Frau, seiner Tochter Odet und seinem Sohn Adam nicht weit von mir und besucht mich regelmäßig.

Erna, Daniel und Rafael Goldmann

Das bin ich mit meinen Kinder Daniel und Rafael in unserer Wohnung in Ramat Gan.

1951 ist unser Sohn Rafael geboren. Rafi war ein ganz anderer Typ als Dani. Dani war zuerst blond, dann wurde er dunkler. Rafi ist ein heller Typ.

Beide Kinder waren sehr goldig. Aber der Altersunterschied von elf Jahre war schon sehr groß.

In Ramat Gan haben wir ungefähr zehn Jahre gewohnt. 1963 sind wir nach Ramat Chen gezogen, da haben wir uns ein Haus gebaut.

The Goldmann family in Israel's desert

In this photo, you can see my husband and me with our sister-in-law from Holland in Israel’s desert.

Whenever they would visit us, we drove all across Israel to show them the country.

My sister-in-law, Jetti, was very pretty – her mother was Dutch and her father from Indonesia.

My husband and I often visited them in Holland; we were in Amsterdam for the first time in 1958.

That was also the first time we left Israel. My brother died on February 9, 1974. His wife and kids still live in Holland.

Picnic in Ashkelon

This was our car: a Vauxhall, a well-known English car. We picnicked in Ashkelon with our best friends.

The other car was a Willys, the American car of our friends.

We would all travel around together. We even had a car and we drove all across Israel.

When we found a place we liked, we stopped for a picnic. I didn’t drive, but my husband did.

He couldn’t be without a car for one day. It was a big investment back then, a car.

They didn’t have many cars. You could park anywhere. Anywhere!

Yehuda and Lotte Ickelheimer with their son Ruben, Lotte and Moshe Goldmann with their son Daniel

This is a great picture; I love it.

From left to right, there are my sister-in-law’s husband, Yehuda Ickelheimer (we called him Ickel), my sister-in-law – and best friend – Lotte.

And then there’s me and Moshe. Our children Daniel and Ruben were of the same age and they liked each other a lot.

We spent so much time together, and we became great friends.

We were not only related, but we were friends, too. Isn’t that wonderful?

Erna and Moshe Goldmann's wedding

On the far left, you can see my father-in-law Adolf Goldmann at our wedding in Tel Aviv, on December 24, 1937.

Two days after my 20th birthday, I married Moshe in the garden of a small hotel on Yarkon Street in Tel Aviv, on December 25, 1937.

This hotel doesn’t exist anymore. It was an intimate wedding: my mother, my brother Karl, his wife Irene, her father, an aunt and my father-in-law, my mother-in-law’s sister.
