      Hi Micki,

      Gosh this is amazing. You are 100 per cent right, you knew my whole
      family. My mom, Kitty is still alive and is 91 years old. My Sister
      Sylvia died at the tender age of 44 leaving 3 children, her married name
      was Galgut, and my father died in 1994. My mother did work at Crystals,
      we lived in SilSonia Lodge, I was 4 as we had moved from Pretoria to
      Johannesburg but I have very vivid memories of the place. I don't
      remember your face, but I definitely remember the name Micki Cohen. Is
      your sister Sybil? I remember Mr Rochin, my dad was in constant contact
      with all his lancleit. My Dad lost both his parents, his 2 sisters, his
      brother-in-law and their 2 children on that fateful day in November
      1941. My fathers mothers name was Leah Levitt.

      Micki please keep in touch, I would love to know about your family etc.
      Have you been in England a long time?

      Kind regards and looking forward to hearing from you,

      Sonja Shacknofsky (nee Setting)
