Someone is Watching Over Me
A Memoir by Florence Mayer Lieblich

January, 1995

In memory of my devoted parents:

My heart is full of pain. I now take the opportunity to mention the names of my sainted parents who fell by the hands of the blood-thirsty Nazi murderers: my father, Rabbi Meir Leib Mayer Ben Moshe, my mother, Gitel Riva Mayer Bas Mordechai. May God avenge their blood.

In memory of my dear husband’s parents, Feiga Sonnenschein Lieblich and Mendel Lieblich. May they rest in peace.

— Florence Mayer Lieblich

In memory of Dr. Philip Lieblich’s family and my family, all of whom perished in the Holocaust. May they never be forgotten!

To my darling, devoted daughter, Gloria Lieblich Kaplan:
This book, with all the happy memories and hell that your parents had to overcome, is written especially for you, my sweetheart. I am very happy and thankful to you for helping me and giving me the opportunity to write my memoirs. It pains me very much that your devoted father could not share all the memories with me. I miss your father very much, but pain and adjustment have been my specialty since my teenage years. I am very sorry that you missed the love of your wonderful grandparents. I love you very much and always will.

Your mother,
