On November 6, 2013, my fiance, his parents and I visited my Buba and Ziedi in Florida. Over a hearty brunch, truly enough to feed an army, with blintzes, bagels, whitefish salad, lox, and coffee, Buba recalled stories of their time in Israel after the war. She brought out her Poesiealbums--which are essentially poetry albums, a collection of autographs, dedications, and drawings from close friends, relatives, and acquaintances. The albums were over 60 years old with some entries dating back to 1944. Due to the delicate nature, I decided to borrow both books in order to scan and preserve. See a few of the scans below.
Next, I plan to mail the scans to Buba in order for her to translate the Yiddish, French, and German excerpts.
