Hannah sat in the chair, that her family had reserved for the prophet Elijah. She was next to Aunt Eva and was staring at her tattoo.
Hannaleh, you're staring,
Yes, at my arm. At the number. Does it frighten you still? You've never let me explain it to you and your mother hates me to talk of it.
Hannah is touching the number on Aunt Eva's arm and explaining it's meaning. Aunt Eva is explaining why they changed their names when they came to America.
We all changed our names. To forget. Remembering was too painful. But to forget was impossible.
No, no, please, let me explain it to you... J for Jew. And 1 because you were all alone, alone of the 8 who had been in your family...
Aunt Eva is touching Hannah's lips, to stop her mouth, from saying what had to be said. Hannah, takes Aunt Eva's finger off her lips, and says that she remembers.
In my village, in the camp... in the past ... I was called RIvka
I remember. Oh, I remember.
