It's the middle of the week already, where does the time go?

I love the way they are both looking hopeful, but somehow serious, perhaps wondering what their future would be. They were Jewish, and lived in Hungary, and from there they fled through various countries, trying to find a safe haven from the Nazis.

I looked after her for her last couple of years in the old people's home. She never wanted to speak of her terrible experiences, but always smuggled food into her room and hid it in a suitcase in her wardrobe, together with a few essentials, so she would have something if she ever needed to flee again.
