Grandpa’s white handkerchief

Hi – I just finished your mother’s wonderful book, Memories of Eden, given to me by my new neighbor, Dafna, Violette’s great grandniece.  I had no idea of all this life and history. As the granddaughter of Eastern European Jews, all the Jewish history I knew was northern, though equally difficult. Most surprising were some of the habits and attitudes that my grandparents had in common with the Jews of the Middle East.  My grandfather always had a white handkerchief with him – which he would tie in the corners to carry things or to make a hat. Thank you for caring enough and for bringing the book to light.

Best, Barbara G, New York
