Lily Katzman

"A twentieth-century tale, caught like that."

Marilyn tells Mr Anderson Lily's story to illustrate how the Archive should remain together. She explains how it is pieced together by Oswald from material all over the collection...

Lily Katzman was the daughter of a Jewish doctor in Berlin during World War II. Her Father was also an amateur photographer who made many studies of her. When the persecution of the Jews began the family split up and Lily was sent to live with a upper-class family, the Oelendorffs, because she didn't look too Jewish and was passed off as a distant niece.
