Childhood Home

"My childhood home in the village of Mniszek, near the city of Rachow (today Annapol), Poland.

I am carrying water up the hill to our house; my sister Mania waits for me.

My brother, Ruven, is standing with the wagon.

My father and my sister Chana are in front of the house, along with my mother, who holds my youngest sister, Leah."
