It's also the story of every Jewish child born in a DP camp after WII, like the one I was born in in Bavaria. Not one of us had any grandparents. Not even graves to visit later in life. Our grandparents were shot into ditches later burned to get rid of the evidence so not one of us children knew what it meant to have a grandparent. We thought only Gentiles had grandparents. We were waiting to to Palestine, but the British had blockaded the coast. In the case of my father, because he had military experience, having been inducted into the Red Army after fleeing Poland, and having fought from Leningrad to Berlin,and then having defected at the first opportunity, the Irgun - the terrorist underground - offered to secretly fly my father and us to Palestine. But I was born with health problems that needed attention, and both my parents had lost their first families and children to the Nazis in the war, so when Truman offered to finally take us in 1948, my parents decided on Brooklyn rather than Tel Aviv. At the time the Irgun was fighting the British and the Arabs. But this story of what happened to the Jews of Europe AFTER the Holocaust, and what we went through is very well covered in this accurate and insightful documentary.
