e-mail from Frances: . . .”Our family visited Neidenstein when I was growing up and my mother still has very fond memories of the summers she spent there as a child with her Oncle Joseph and Tante Ida. What she doesn’t like to remember are the toileting arrangements – which were primitive! She told me recently how they used to dry washing by spreading it out on the grass and according to her, sprinkled water on it to “bleach” it. Her aunt Ida used to rub her cheeks with red crepe paper when her mother came to collect her, to make her look “healthy”! I think she said her Aunt Ida ran a little sweet shop too.”. . .
