>>There is a photo in “Shtetl Under the Sun – The Ashkenazic Jewish Community
of Curaçao” of Lucca circa 1948 playing the accordion while three children
(one is my oldest sister) in sailors outfits are dancing. She told last year
that she was part of the community for three years after leaving Europe. I
never met the wonderful woman, but this image is how I will picture her always.
He has today (21 May) sent along the photo, and says: “Attached for inclusion on the website is a scan of the photo of Lucca Koch playing the accordion circa 1950 in Curaçao, at a celebration of Israel’s independence which appears on page 200 of “A Shtetl Under the Sun – The Ashkenazic Community of Curaçao” by Jeannette van Ditzhuijzen.” The children are Lily Bonaparte, Johnny Wachtel and Rita Wiznitzer.
