The comics, p. 24
The Comics24 In answering an e-mail from Danny Rosenfels, Paul's son, who lives in Austria. You asked me if we were allowed to read comics — I remember Paul, Walter, and our father being great comics readers. I remember the titles: Gasoline Alley, Orphan Annie, The Katzenjammer Kids. I don't remember these being forbidden, but Paul evidently said so to you. I do remember my mother saying the boys could not go out on Halloween with other boys to do damage — soaping windows, overturning outhouses. Because Jewish boys had to behave better than others.
