    My Family Emigrates to NY… and All But One Return

    Five poor broth­ers em­i­grat­ed from Min­sk, Be­larus to NY. The great de­pres­sion was so bad for them that four of them re­turned to Be­larus. Those four were mur­dered (you know, that is­sue with Ger­many). The one who stayed in NY was my great-grand­fa­ther. Thanks for not mov­ing back to East­ern Eu­rope on the eve of Hitler and Stal­in, G‑Gramps!
