I interviewed my Grandmother whose father was a (Coin) in Austria. She told me what that means in her family and how it was affected when he left Austria and came to the USA. Judaism was lost after my grandmother in my family after she became a single parent, Hebrew school for my mother was not an option. It is up to me to continue Jewish practice in my family.
I talked to my great grandma who is 101 about when she was born in Poland. She does not identify as Polish, because the Jewish people lived mostly separately, but she can speak some Polish in addition to her first language, Yiddish. She remembers living with many animals, and taking care of younger siblings. She asked me about Jews living in Poland today.
