Thinking of Bollendorf brings all kinds of memories back.  Of the hundred Jews 80 of them were either Levy or Mayers. I was related to them on my father side or my mothers.  We lived next to my grandparents house until after the first world war. I always went for vacation to my grandparents and all the second cousins from all over came also.  We enjoyed each others company and did a lot of nice things together.  We would go over the bridge to the Luxembourg side.  There was a guard on either side of the bridge.  We would go together to buy candy and chocolade or have ice cream in one of the hotels.  During summer vacation the hotels would send the overflow of their guests to the private homes.  There was a Burg [large manor house] in Bollendorf. The owner was an old maid. They grew golden delicious apples; during harvest time, my aunt would help to wrap the apples separate in paper and they send them all over the world.  Bollendorf was known for the blueberries.  During harvest time the grocers from Trier would come and wait in front of the forest to pick them up.  I often think what a nice time we had together with the family.
