Saying goodbye, Mariechen’s daughters then gave Anita a stone they had knocked out of the wall of the house, something their mother had, as Anita had observed, encouraged them to do the previous day. When Anita had arrived back in her courtyard, she stuck the stone into the wall, went up to the apartment, pulled out the stamp pad, put her forehead into it, rolled it to the left and to the right a few times, went back into the courtyard and pressed her forehead against the wall.
