Photograph article dated February 17, 1962 partially reads, "'Democracy is like a jigsaw puzzle. It takes all sizes, shapes and colors to make it complete. 'It isn't your religion or the color of your skin that matters in our democracy; it's what you do the way you act that counts,' said Mrs. Henry Kraus of San Fernando, one of B'nai B'rith Women's 'Doll Ladies.' Mrs. Kraus, who uses dolls to teach history and the American way of life to school children, presented the program Wednesday to a group of Valley principals and youth leaders at a tea in the Encino home of Mrs. Eugene N. Geller." Photograph caption reads, "B'nai B'rith women show 'Dolls for Democracy' to children - Mrs. Henry Kraus, left, a 'doll lady,' Mrs. Joyce Lederman arrange dolls."
