Lea is the second girl from the right. The photo was taken during an outing to Kraków with the Beit Jakob School in 1938. The students visited many places and were taught at the same time. There is a monument visible in the background – a burial mound called Kopiec Piłsudskiego which was made in memory of the head of state Józef Piłsudski who died in 1935. Many Jews had been involved in building it. Lea was given the photo by a friend after the war. The friend had managed to keep it during her years in a concentration camp.
