    It happened by pure chance we came across this program tonight..May 16th. My family heritage has roots in great grandfather fled Russia late 1800s. He was a tailor for the Czar and fled to London where he was also a tailor.Being Jewish I am sure life was difficult for him and his family. I cried as I saw and learned of the conditions that his family possibly had to live through. We immigrated to Canada in 1956 and then to the Sates a year later.I still have stron ties to England..Essex and Cornwall. I most definitely want to order this documentary to pass on to my children. Thank you so much.

      Cherie, you’re very welcome. Our forebears survived unimaginable conditions.
