The obliteration of Jewish life in Europe by Nazi Germany is still with us today, by its very absence. Has this void create a 'black hole'? If so, what does it say to us today? Should those of us two generations later and a continent away make a connection to our lost Jewish family and, if so, how?


Burton Klein

Burton Klein grew up in the 1950s in Medford, MA. His grandparents, as well as his wifes grandparents, came to U.S. in the 1890s, but never talked about those family members who stayed in Europe. He has become increasingly interested in their history. He and his wife traveled to Eastern Europe this spring to learn about their roots there.
