Re: Washington Heights by LBI #usa

Yes familiar with this exhibition.  My late wife was interviewed for this as was her brother.  She was Marion Bloch, daughter of Alfred and Herta Bloch.  It was her grandparents who brought their business, Bloch & Falk, over from Frankfurt.  Bloch & Falk became sort of a central institution in the heights.  To this day people still talk about the aufschnitt, i.e., cold cuts.  They were special as they were kosher but were almost identical to the non-kosher aufschnitt (probably better too).  Yes the fourth reich.
