Hello world!

Posted: August 9, 2012 in Uncategorized

In the spring of 1939, a letter arrived from Germany stating that Opa, my grandfather, was terminally ill. He had already undergone two operations for stomach cancer, and his doctor said there was nothing more he could do. Opa was slowly dying, carrying Mama deep into the depths of sorrow. Unbeknownst to me, she was pregnant at the time with my baby brother and had become physically ill, which compounded her troubled thoughts that she might never again see her father.
It had been seven years since she gazed into the eyes, felt the tender touch, or heard words of wisdom from the family she yearned for day after day. Attempting to be true to the young family she had created in America, she was deeply torn between the two. She had grown to love the husband she was committed to, although she silently resented him for taking her an ocean away from the kinship she pined.
The doctor informed Papa that the illness plaguing Mama was depression, primarily due to homesickness, and if she didn’t return to her homeland, we could lose both her and the baby. Knowing his beloved wife needed closure with her father before cancer devoured him, Papa faced an impossible situation.
Hitler had come into power; Germany was in dire straits; and yet the decision was made to leave New York and head overseas to free Mama and the baby from danger. Little did we know that what was intended to be a three-month stay would turn into seven years of living hell. With Poland coming under attack, World War II began, and all ports and borders were closed, prohibiting our family from leaving the Nazi-controlled country. The atrocities and prejudices we endured are forever burned into my memory

Affectionately dedicated to my children:

Kathy, Tony, David, and Tommy.

I hope you’ll learn that no matter how bad things become, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. As long as you have faith in God, respect, and love for each other, you can make it—no matter what.

I have been extremely fortunate to be blessed with all the good things life has to offer. I had the best brothers, the kindest parents, a remarkable extended family, and of course good friends.

I married a wonderful man and together we’ve created our own beautiful family. I would gladly give up anything in my possession to keep them safe, and for all of this, I thank God for the blessings he has bestowed upon me and my family.
