My Life in Goch

Hello I’m Margot Cohen and I was born on the 15th of September1932 in Goch. My parents Elise and Jacob Cohen always cared well for my brother Herbert and I. We lived at  Herzogenstrasse 8 next to the synagogue. My father was the caretaker. We were not very well off and lived in three rooms above the Jewish school.  I liked it there and enjoyed life as it was.
