This is me, Henrich F. This picture was taken on 24th January 1942, in a pulmonary disease clinic in Kvetnica, where I was lying in Room No. 15.

When it was already very bad, our parents would always send us to safer places. They tried to save the second generation; we traveled from one place to another. I also got into a sanatorium for lung diseases in Kvetnica. At that time, my brother was at home with our parents. Working in Kvetnica was Dr. Kohn, who concealed many "ill" Jews there.
