About the inventor: — Bracha Ungar Klein was born in Bratislava, Slovakia. At the age of 17 she moved to Israel, where she earned a degree in physical education and worked for 22 years as an exercise teacher. She has degrees in education and languages. Besides her native Slovakian language, Bracha is fluent in German, Hebrew and English, with some Hungarian and French on the side.
Upon moving to the U.S., she attended Anne Arundel Community College to learn English and went on to earn her Master's degree in languages at the University of Maryland. Later she worked in Annapolis, Maryland, as activity director for a senior center, continuing her exercise program and crafts. While teaching in Maryland, Bracha had the inspiration that people needed their minds exercised along with their muscles, and she developed the game that became known as Memory Bank, her registered trademark. Congratulations, Bracha, on this 25th anniversary of your creation!
Widowed, Bracha moved to Long Island, NY, with her new husband, Leo Klein, in 1989.
...
These days Bracha and Leo divide their year between Long Island in the summer and Deerfield Beach, Florida, in the winter.

Memory Bank® was the brainchild of Bracha Ungar Klein, an educator and linguist. She had read about our games and contacted Kate to help design and produce the equipment for a game that would be mentally stimulating for the whole family, using numbers (and later letters) in a simulation of computers on a gameboard.

The gameboard for up to 4 players was screenprinted on a nice leather-like vinyl. The supply of numbers and tokens was die-cut from cardboard, because Bracha was looking for the least expensive way to make them, although Kate had misgivings about cardboard from her Roundominoes fiasco. As it turned out, the cardboard job was awful, and we reran them on a much nicer material, rigid vinyl, a couple of years later, when we added the alphabetical component to the game.
Having the option of playing a number game or a word game greatly enriched Memory Bank's play value. Memory Bank was in our catalog for a couple of years and then was turned over to Bracha along with the bulk of the inventory when she moved out of state.
