Manuela was most eager to create a meaningful experience for us. She had arranged a 3:00 meeting with head of the synagogue , Mr . Cohen. This appointment required time and effort for Manuela. Yet when we arrived , the doors were locked. She spoke with the soldiers, called Mr. Cohen and shared our disappointment. We were discussing the architecture of the building when Mr. Cohen arrived . We spoke for about 30 minutes with Manuela as our translator. . It was the tour highlight for all three of us .
