Susanne Tells her Father the Story of Little Red Riding HoodPosted: July 20, 2011
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.
