MY GRANDFATHER'S SISTER, Elise Sonnemann, was a medical doctor in Munich. I knew little about her -- but now I wanted to know more. For me this time of research and discovery was enriched by images emerging from the past., another gift from my father. And then there was my quest for memorials. Some would be thwarted, others realized. All of this was part of an intricate composition, one that I dedicate to Elise.
