My mom moved here from France when she was four. My grandma grew up in France. My great-grandparents moved from Hungary to France because they were communists and they wanted to be where it was more liberal. I’m Jewish so the Holocaust really interfered with my grandmother’s childhood. She was in hiding like Anne Frank but more bouncing around, not just in one attic. She was 12 years old. My great-grandparents were killed in the Holocaust but the 3 kids survived. My grandma married an American military man and followed him over here. My mom knows no French and lives here. – Marianne
