New in­sight

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

Brian Co­hen Manch­ester M25

I was amazed to see in print in the JC (Feb 10), the re­mark­able po­ems and draw­ings of my mother (Doris En­gle­bert) and her sis­ter Alice, com­posed over 100 years ago when they were chil­dren at­tend­ing the cheder at The Lib­eral Jewish Syn­a­gogue.

That the chil­dren’s work sur­vived and has re­cently been digi­tised for all to ac­cess on the In­ter­net is in­cred­i­bly ex­cit­ing. For me, per­son­ally, it has brought new in­sight into as­pects of my mother’s child­hood dur­ing the First World War.
