INT: I’m asking about your social life when you were in London?
LL: Yes, it was very pleasant.
INT: Mainly Jewish? Or non-Jewish?
LL: Mostly Jewish, there was the odd non-Jewish one. I wasn’t selective but it happened to be.
INT: So what kind of things did you do?
LL: We mainly went to each others’ houses. We went to the pictures. I mean, money was short with everybody and heating was expensive and everything. We lived a normal life, not like teenagers live now. We didn’t buy clothes or anything, which we didn’t need because you could bring a lot out of Germany. That was one thing you had, that was clothes. So shopping didn’t come into it.
INT: So your, your parents were in Germany?
LL: My parents by that time were already in a camp. They emigrated from Germany to Holland and they were taken to camps from Holland.
INT: Ok we’ll maybe go back over that later. I want to continue with life in London. So, you worked
INT: In this one job
INT: Really for a good 5 or 6 years
LL: Yes, yes until ‘46
INT: And you were living..?
LL: And I lived together with my aunt in a flat which we had rented. We had no real… the landlord didn’t live in the house so we had the top floor
