Another old gem

Another old gem surfaced looking through Mom’s paperwork. A picture of my maternal grandparents. Grandma was always a beautiful woman with great style, and grandpa was pretty handsome too, reminding me of Charlie Chaplin a bit. Together they had two daughters, my Mom and her younger sister who is my godmother. Together they have also seen and fought in the war, were prisoners and spent 11 years apart from each other. Grandpa was a prisoner of war and Grandma had to flee the country with Mom who was only 5 years old at the time. It was a miracle Grandpa found his family again through the Red Cross after he was released from prison, and life could continue as a family.
