The photo was taken around about the time of Margarete’s engagement to Ruth’s father, Moritz, in the early nineteen twenties. Margarete was a mathematician, and including Ruth she had four children. Ruth remembers her mother enjoying needle work in her spare time, and being busy with her children especially once Ruth’s younger brother was born just one year after Ruth.
