  1. Lovely, touching portrait. I love her doll: dressed in the children’s clothes of the time. I suppose this child would have hailed Hitler during her time. Commonplace for the largest population of people in the country at that time. How Germany has changed! Hardly a German country now. Thanks again, CC.
