This quote is important because it shows how much the little things meant to Minka and other Jews during the Holocaust. Things that we take for granted like pictures and important family heirlooms were taken away from those people. Every last bit of their identity was taken away. Whatever memories they could possibly save even if it was something as little as a picture meant the world to them. Minka started to secretly save photos and memorizing the people’s names and stories, She couldn’t save her own family’s belongings to saving someone else’s was the next best thing. It meant that even if the people in the photos were dead, they would still be remembered and their stories would never be forgotten.
