It’s hard to look at this picture without smiling. This photo is undated, however, if I were to guess, I would say this was taken in the late 1920s. Just a few years later, this type of interaction, Jew and Gentile, would be forbidden by the German government.

Speaking of race, I find it quite difficult to differentiate the Jews and non-Jews. I mean, clearly, there are some toe-headed kids in the photo, but nonetheless I find it difficult. Would be extremely interesting if someone, somewhere had this exact photo of their grandparent or parent.

My grandfather is located under the arrow, drawn by someone at the time.
