To the Editor;
Thank you for the great article on Elke Neumann Taylor’s books, “Elke’s Mem- oirs of Hamburg, 1941” and “Passport to the Orient.”
I loved both of them!
They were written in a style that was strong and simple. Very descriptive memories about a family who dearly loved each other and protected that.
She had a turbulent childhood and, yet, a fortunate childhood during a very unfortunate time.
My mother-in-law had a similar childhood in Germany during the previous war and ended up on a ship to South America (Brazil) where she worked on a coffee plantation.
Thank you, Mrs. Taylor, for sharing your memoirs.
Thank you, The Pocahontas Times, for the stories of the people in our area.
