They received a thorough basic education and in addition an occupational training, so that they could later take care of themselves.

Because of the censorship the letter was written in German. A.L. Dear Esther, Thank you very much for your letter about which I can say, like you, that it both gladdened and sad-dened us. We also thank you sincerely for the small parcel. It was most useful, from the dress to the shirts and stockings. And now, dear cousin, you want me to write about your dear mother, for, as you so sadly put it, you wish to know, whatever the painful cost. Well then, after the children went away, Mother suffered greatly. She longed terribly for her children and had nothing with which to occupy herself ...
