I learned about my parents, Heinrich and Else Steffens, one day in the spring of 1951. I was playing alone outside our house when a stranger came towards me, and I noticed that he looked very different from any man I had ever seen. He wore a strange little cap, which sat on the back of his head. He had a kind and gentle face, a blue suit and a briefcase. Who is sick? I wondered. Someone has called a doctor, I thought. I was not frightened, when the man asked, "Kleine, wo wohnst Du?

Thank you for publishing Liesel Brooks' story ("The Awakening," Oct. 26). I met many people like her when I was invited two years ago by the City of Berlin as an ex-Berliner. This program by many West German cities is to rebuild bridges with the Jews who are fortunate enough to be alive and now live all over the world, to come back and visit their homeland. It was difficult to explain my ambivalent feelings to my native-born American Jewish friends. Although it was a most emotional experience, I have not regretted going.
