Tateh got permission to bring me with him to his workplace at the Liegenschaft. For me, after spending every day holed up alone, this was a godsend. Here I could breathe the air and stretch my arms and legs.
I had never been inside the walls of the estate before, and marveled at the fine house and property. I remember I was there during the Christmas season in 1942, when the estate gave extra potatoes to the local population.
