(From the tapestry): "April 1941. As my father was praying on Erev Pesach, two Nazis showed up and began to beat him. They pulled him outside and got ready to shoot him. My mother yelled to me and my brother to get the Nazi commander to stop them. The commander wasn’t there but his aide called them off."
