Mom was taken from our apartment; force marched through our hallway by “Men in White.” My brothers Al, Bob and I had ringside seats. Al has vague memories of that day. Bob, being so young, has none. Unfortunately, I recall that day, vividly. Mom’s removal from our apartment remains with me to this day.
Mom was committed to Brooklyn State Hospital’s Mental Facility. She endured eleven years of treatments. She was isolated, lonely and left to herself. We were next! Dad transferred us to a “Special School.” Actually, an orphanage. A total of eleven plus years passed before we were reunited with Mom. We were no longer children. Mom wasn’t Mommy. The four of us were scarred.
