Susanne Tells her Father the Story of Little Red Riding Hood

Susanne Höber (1930-  ) was a very bright little girl.  In this photograph taken in November 1932, at the age of 2 ½, she tells her father a story.  The caption on the back of this picture (in her mother’s handwriting) says:  “Susanne erzählt dem Papi vom Rotkäppchen:  ‘Nu das Rotkäppchen brachte der Oma eine guhde Supp.’ Nov 1932.” [ “ … well and Little Red Riding Hood brought her Granny some gooood soop.”}  There is also a photo of Susanne with her mother.  The pictures were taken in a garden in Mannheim, where Johannes (1904-1977) and Elfriede (1904-1999) lived with Susanne.  This was a few months before German voters handed their country over to the Nazis.
