“We ended up coming to St. Louis with $25.00 between the three of us and no jobs. Family Service gave us money, but my father told them immediately 'We will borrow this money from you, but as soon as we earn anything we will begin to repay.' We started paying it back a dollar or two dollars a week because we felt there were going to be people who were in the same position as we were and don't take that away from them.” - Lotte Zinner
