Thanks! I know it is common... and Jews, unlike Gentiles, seem to be more inclined to forget than remember their probably very uncomfortable histories in the "Old Country" (whether Russia, Germany, Poland, etc). I have learned little about my father's family. I do know some of my cousins perished in the Holocaust when they refused my grandmother Rebecca's offer of safe haven in New York and instead tried to hide out in Berlin. Sigh. Thanks! It is possible that this is my grandmother. I have to ask if she could have died outside the city or Brooklyn-- my remaining cousins may know.
I appreciate your kindly help.
