As we sat around the spherical coffee tables in the Ginger Cove assisted living community’s welcome room, Marge Margulies was kind enough to share with me her point of view of what life was like in the US during World War II. The entire atmosphere “was vibrant, [united], and for this war,” said Mrs. Margulies, “everyone wanted to be in love.”

“My best friend, Annalisa Strouse moved here from Germany because her teacher told her classmates they could not talk to her because she was Jewish,” said Mrs. Margulies. During the time of the war, Mrs. Margulies said that she could not grasp the concept as to why Jews were being persecuted by their home countries and being turned away by the ship-full by the US. Mrs. Margulies and her family were Jewish themselves, and she recalls how normal her friends, the Strouse family were. “They all played in a lovely quartet,” recalls Mrs. Margulies.
