Photo measures 8 x 10. Mrs. Erika Schmidt, 55, holds her 16-month-old granddaughter, Anna, whom she is seeing for the first time, as she is reunited in East Berlin today with her son, Hans, and daughter-in-law, Christel. Hans, his wife and daughter received permits in West Berlin to visit his mother whom he has not seen for more than 2 1/2 years. Erika traveled for 16 hours by train from deep inside Communist East Germany for today's reunion with her son. Hans Schmidt is not his real name. He does not want his name used because he fears Communist retaliation against his family.
