Page from the photo album of Otto Schenkelbach showing him as 13 year-old boy around the time of his bar-mitzvah.

The album page is fille by a written explanation that reads, "Dir, Lieber Anschauer will ich alle meine Babybilder auf denen ich der Welt Zeige was sie verdient...(was ich damals nur gefuelsmaessig erkannte) ersparen...und stelle mich hier im Jahre 1927 als Bar-Mizwahkind vor" [To you, dear viewers, I want to spare all of my baby pictures upon which I show the world what she earned (what I only emotionally saw) and I have put here a picture of myself as a Bar Mitzvah boy in 1927.
