And you said that--is she a survivor as well?

Well, she's a survivor as well, but, but she didn't--she wasn't at concentration camp. She was in, she was in London. She had--she left, she left uh, Vienna on a permit--on a work permit as a, as a--you had to be--she had work as a domestic. Otherwise she couldn't get out from Vienna. So she left for--she had an aunt in London. So she sent her such a permit. And she had to work as a domestic for a full year. And then after, after a year she, she was uh, she could work wherever she wants. She left. She worked in different places. She's a millinery.
