So, I'm playing this AWESOME game about US history and Lena is one of the characters you can play. I chose her and from the moment she started to talk, I wanted to give her a high five. She's awesome. She works for a sweatshop, then a factory (Asch Building! I hope she survives) & takes English classes in somewhere near her house and she met a fellow worker there, Rosa. She's an Italian girl with dark red hair and has the most beautiful accent in the world. If I was writing the game, Lena would be falling for her. This got me thinking, what would happen if this actually happened and they fell in love? What if they came out? What if they kept it a secret? What would life be like for them? I know Lena is expected to find a husband, and I made her agree to go to a dance with a boy called Zev too. Maybe she's bisexual like me, hehe. I don't really regret going to the dance, but she could go to the feminist meeting (first-wave feminism!) and do something more useful. Wait... I'm ranting. Sorry!

As a Jewish lesbian she's essentially out of the Jewish foodchain because poor Jews around this time were working their hardest in white, Christian countries to give their children better lives. It takes a few generations but I'd say right after WWII being a Jew suddenly becomes very sweet.
Really I'd imagine life would be quite shitty for her, she's basically attacked from all sides, homophobia and the like and won't even get a chance to pass on her genes.1
