Brighton Beach Avenue, the main street of community of Brighton Beach was a sea of people, young and old, weaving in and out of the hundreds of stories featuring various Jewish and Russian delicacies.  A medley of Russian and Jewish music filtered out of the Russian coffeehouses that lined the streets which nurtured the aroma of hot bagels and knishes.  It was 1933. The depression years were waning and the war was yet to come.

Sara Koza was an attractive 18-year-old with compelling deep brown eyes.  Born of Russian immigrants in Harlem, her mother had died when she was 8-year-old of TB.  Her father, Jack was forced to put her and her brother who was two years younger into an orphanage until he could establish a home for them.  Jack met Frieda, a young nurse from Russia and they were married.  Sara's father was a gifted musician and joined the Goldman band as the lead trumpeter.  Sara and her brother, Sam, were taken out of the orphanage and reunited with their father and new stepmother.  The Koza's, due to the father's talent flourished during the depression years and Sara had a new sister and brother to concern herself with as the oldest child.  As she walked the streets of Brighton to the subway in 1933 she felt a sense of excitement which reflected in the blush that crossed her cheek and her buoyant stride.
