MEYN SHEYNER FRINTZ
מיין שיינער פרינץ
For my fifth birthday in 1939, Papa, my handsome prince, gave me a beautiful book called “Kinder und Hausmärchen.”
The next year we went into hiding with Papa’s Christian friends in the country. Three years later the SS arrested us.
At nights in my bunk, I’d close my eyes and imagine Papa reading Briar Rose or Rapunzel, mimicking the ladies with squeaky falsetto voices to make me laugh.
I was eleven when American soldiers liberated us from the camp. I searched for my handsome prince, but Papa was nowhere to be found. For me there is no happily ever after.

The Book was also known as Grimm’s Fairytales
