Life Before the War II

Um, and your mother was still alive when the Germans came?

Oh, yes.

Did she live with you?

Yes, we were together. When I married and I moved my father and mother-in-law's house--not house, apartment, and after the war, my father-in-law never came back and my mother-in-law lived with, with her uh, niece, and I went back with my little son to ???

What was your son's name?




So what happened from '42 to '44, you just continued being a housewife and...

No I was working in my father in law's uh, office.

You and your husband worked together then?

My husband work in the factory and I was working in the office. It was a small factory and everything was stolen.

Mm-hm. And your son stayed with your mother then?
