After the first year of service, I moved to a new apartment that had been occupied by a former Volunteer. She had left in one of the closets a few blankets. Another Volunteer in Arad and I decided to bring those blankets to a very poor family that lived in a small ghetto in the outskirts. We were followed everywhere by many of the neighborhood children within the ghetto. I always had my camera at hand. The girl pictured here appears to be around 13 years old. She was washing the wedding dress and it was already hanging on the clothes lines when we passed by taking pictures. Another woman whose arms are visible around the girls' sides is holding the dress up. A Romanian writer I had met saw the picture and wrote the following inspired by the picture:
"Encyclopedic Maiden, Offering compassion, From extreme Right she abstains!"
