Blanche Baker: Anna Weiss
Anna Weiss : There is no hope! Karl is in prison and Rudi ran away! Never a word from him! And Papa, in Poland, where it's like they came after him! Mama, you're acting as if this is a play. Writing letters. Talking about Papa's patients.
Berta Palitz Weiss : It does no harm.
Anna Weiss : You always had that notion that you were someone special, so fine, so educated! The Nazis would never hurt you or your children! And look! Look what's happened to us!
Inga Helms Weiss : Anna, your mother can't be blamed.
Anna Weiss : New Year's Eve! And who knows if any one of us will be alive for the next New Year!
