File Type: imageText: My father(Frank) had already arrived in this country and was waiting for us in Madison. When my mother and I landed in New York, we were very hungry. Before we boarded the train, my mother bought a sack of fruit for us to eat during the ride. I pulled out a banana, but she wouldn't let me eat it because she thought it was a horn. I reached into the sack again and pulled out an apple pie. She thought it looked like the soap back in our village, so that was also thrown away. Rose Salerno Barbato
