Sunday Memories: The Look of Love


She escaped from Hungary to England as the Nazis began to round up the Jews. In 1950, she sailed on the Queen Elizabeth into the New York Harbor.

It was morning and the crescent moon glimmered on the water.

The Lady beckoned.

The boat horns blew welcome.

Then the city unfolded before her eyes.

It was love at first sight.

Thank you for writing about my mother. That's just a little taste of what she has to tell. She wrote down her escape from Hungary. It is amazing to read.
