First day of school

Two Jewish girls (cousins Margot and Lotte Cassel) ready for their first day of school in Breslau, Germany, ca. 1937. As was traditional for all children in Germany, the cones were filled with treats to celebrate their first day of school.

Margot's father, Saul, worked in the Teitz department store until he was dismissed following the enactment of the Nuremberg Laws.
