These are my daughters, Bessy Aharoni [nee Weisz] and Lilly Drill [nee Weisz] in Berlin in the 1930s. Bessy was born on 10th December 1929 and Lilly on 6th May 1933. My daughters went to the Jewish kindergarten on Gipsstrasse. There was a Jewish elementary school on Auguststrasse. The director of the Jewish elementary school had been one of my class teachers at the Jewish high school. When I took my daughter Bessy to her, she said, 'What, you're already bring me your daughter?' You see, we four sisters were in that same school. That's something you don't forget so easily. When Lilly was about to start school, we fled to Budapest, my husband's hometown. My brother-in-law wrote from Palestine: 'Send the children, please send the children. We will raise them as if they were our own.' And they were right, in Palestine the children would be safe.
