    JOY: This photograph entitled “Werfel’s first pair of new shoes”, appeared in the 1946 issue of Life magazine. Werfel, a six-year-old Austrian orphan, has just received his first new pair of shoes as part of the post-war relief effort of the American Red Cross. ~~~~ IT Caused Me To Be Happy & Sad at the Same Time
