The girl with braids and peaked cap is Manfred’s sister Laure, z.l. The man to her right is their grandfather, Moritz, z.l., who was head of the Jewish community of Philippsburg. The boy on the left, wearing a woolen cap, is Manfred. They are carrying coats, in her video testimony, Laure mentions that in addition to taking winter clothing based on her father’s WWI experience with evacuations, they grabbed additional coats on their way out the door. Laure also explained that there were very few children around because most of the families with young children had already managed to leave Germany. She said they all sat on the train together, but we don’t see the others in the film; there were over 6,000 Jews being deported.

The first frames of the film show Laure z.l. and her grandfather, z.l. behind her.
