4/15/2020 7:21 AM What the translator missed was the dedication on the back of the photo: Zum Andenken. To remember us.That implies that the couple were friends rather than relatives of the person to whom the photo was sent, perhaps unlikely to seethem again soon. They are relatively well-dressed, so it looks as if they sent it after they'd arrived and settled down, and that it wasn't taken at the camp.
