She recalls her family's assimilated lifestyle; attending private school; teaching in a Jewish kindergarten; one sister's emigration to South Africa in 1933; her other sister remaining in Berlin (she was protected as the wife of a non-Jewish judge); participation in Maccabi; her father and future husband's arrests on Kristallnacht; marriage after their release; her husband's emigration to Bolivia; traveling via Genoa to join him in December; her parents not emigrating because they liked and trusted Germans; being treated well in Bolivia; and tension between the pro-Nazi German community and Jewish immigrants. Ms. M. discusses corresponding with her parents until their deportation in January 1943; and learning after the war that they and many relatives were killed in Auschwitz.
