(Almost) Wordless Wednesday ~ Morris Goldstein's Scar

In my recent blog post where I shared the Certificate of Naturalization for my husband's grandfather, Morris Goldstein, the physical description of him includes the fact that he has a "scar on middle of forehead."

Originally shared August 2012

When I zoom in, I can see the scar on his forehead:

Morris Goldstein about 1950

The story is that, when he was a boy, in Romania, he was playing ball with a friend, and a bottle was thrown at him, which hit him in the head and cut him, leaving this scar.

Now that I know the story, and see the scar, I do see it in many of the photographs I have of him.

Certificate of Citizenship for Morris Goldstein

In April, when we visited my parents-in-law for Passover, my mother-in-law remembered that she had found something that she wanted me to have: her father's certificate of citizenship!

It turns out that this is a replacement for one that must have been "lost, mutilated, or destroyed."
