D-Day. One bright June morning, actually the Sixth of June, 1944 our elementary school teacher, Mrs. Woods, asked us to stand up and say a silent prayer for our troops who had just landed in Normandy, France. A week later I was to learn that Cousin Manny Charach, landed on those beaches on D+4. A year before my Aunt Clara took me to see a war-time movie, called ”This is the Army.” She cried, her son Manny was in the service in England. Little did I know that 70 years later, I would write a book about her, called, “Klara’s Journey.” .
