The camera was hidden under the gas flame heater at the bottom of a washer similar to the one seen here, in a kibbutz in Israel where Terry visited.
The Hochaus, or apartment house where Terry and her family lived in Wolfenbüttel, Germany. They occupied the entire floor with the roofed balcony.
The washroom where Terry’s mother hid the Leica camera was on the bottom floor behind the door shown. When the Nazi’s searched, they didn’t find the camera.
The Moses shoe store in Wolfenbüttel, Germany, was known for its window displays. Terry’s father trained in window display in preparation for future emigration. Terry’s family moved upstairs to wait for emigration papers, after being forced from their home.

The Nazi government headquartered in the Weise House. It had a glassed-in shadowbox, where the “Stermer” was displayed with its pictures of Jews and “Jew-lovers,” so that the citizens would know whom to avoid; and whom it was safe to harass. Later, Curt Freudenthal stayed there when it was made local headquarters for the US Army.
