This brief memoir describes aspects of family life during and after the Second World War. It is offered in memory of my mother, Rose, a truly wonderful woman.
Nowadays, similar living conditions are often portrayed in TV shows where a family may suffer a month in such poverty. My wonderful mother coped for ten hard years and ensured that her three children survived, and often thrived.
