Reuniting with Sister II

What did you talk about?

What did we--first of all we--I checked right away who is alive, who isn't alive, you know. So right away she told me that uh, my husband is alive. She told me who came home--my sister-in-law I was with, she came home, she's okay. We talked about the family. What else is there to talk about?

And what had happened to her?

To my sister? She--my sister married and she--they lived in Europe and they came to America here, also with her husband.

But during the war what happened to her?

She, she was the one who was in Budapest. They were under a false name. Yeah, she was a, a governess. If you read the book, she was a governess to a Bulgarian, or some--she was a German governess. Both my sisters and my sister-in-law were governesses--German governesses to some diplomat's children. They were very attractive girls and they spoke very well German and Hungarian, so uh, they, they had a good job and they wore a cross, so...

What else do you need?

That's right, a little cross.
