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.
