My maternal grandmother was born in Konigsberg, it was Poland at the time. She came over she was 5 years old. There’s a picture downstairs of her just before she left with her grandparents. They knew she was going to leave with her parents and they took this picture knowing they were never going to see her again. They never did see one another again.
On my father’s side there was a period in the 30’s when Hitler was around and there were relatives that were still over I guess they were in Germany and there was a family circle, all the uncles and aunts were getting together on a regular basis meeting to try to work with government agencies to get them out to safety which they failed to do. – Jeremy
