    in Starker's case, he and his parents survived the Holocaust (he's Jewish) but his two older brothers did not.  He himself spent several months in a concentration camp.

    he was part of a large group after the war known as Displaced Persons, unable to return to their homes, some of whom if Jewish eventually got to Palestine, many of various backgrounds who came to the US.

    We still get many people who are displaced by conflict and strife -  sometimes they are artists and intellectuals, far more often they are merely ordinary folks seeking a better life.

    "We didn't set out to save the world; we set out to wonder how other people are doing and to reflect on how our actions affect other people's hearts." - Pema Chodron
