    Schermeister family in prewar Denmark

    Overview

    Description
    Schermeister family in Denmark before WWII, walking in and out of the door to their small wooden vacation home in Snekkersten. A mezuzah is affixed to the doorway. The donor's great-grandmother, Franzisca Josies Cohen, wearing a large striped scarf. Her daughter Ida, a professional violinist, plays the violin. The other woman in a trenchcoat in front of the house is Asta Cohen, another daughter. [Another daughter not seen here is Edith, the donor's grandmother.] The donor's great-grandfather, Leopold Cohen, pretends to shoot Ida with a shotgun while she plays the violin. Leopold and his wife Franzisca play act for the camera and laugh.
