Remembering my old roots.

Czernowitz games:
When I was a little boy we played silly games.
 One of these was “Hokus Pokus Verschwindibus. “

  A game that made things disappear.
    The Great Magician was a boy from the Waechterweg.
    He asked we bring some object of value from home and he would make it disappear.
    We just had to hand him the object , close our eyes and he would say the magic formula: “Hokus Pokus Verschwindibus. “
    And the object was gone.
     Also the Magician.
