    1) I could take the sentence “I love doc boxes” – in German? With one of our boxes in my bureau?

    2) At the end of the film “Archives are awesome” and then fade away?

    3) In autumn Iget a new magazin, so I can take a nice shot in an empty room with “I love magazins”

    • Dee Dee Says:

    We made this video, in your honor. We at the Jewish Museum of Maryland think you’re awesome!
