THE MEASURE OF A LIFE
“The space was no bigger than a closet,” said Hannah. “Only room for six of us to hide at once.”
“Were you scared, Bubbie?” asked eleven-year-old Corrie.
“Oy! So scared! I had claustrophobia. But as much as small spaces scared me, the Gestapo scared me more.”
“Did you have to stay there for hours at a time?”
“Only when the family had—visitors. Other times we children were free to play and sing. We even celebrated Hanukkah with potato latkes and presents. The Ten-Booms, such wonderful people.”
“I’m named after Corrie Ten-Boom, aren’t I?”
“Ja. May her memory be blessed.”
