  •  I had the chance to see both grandparents before (none)
    their caskets were closed.  I chose not to view, as I wanted to remember them living, not dead.
    My mother wishes she had not seen the open casket of her father.

    Fortunately for us, there were no tattoos. My grandparents came over as a result of the pogroms, a similar, but less recent historical tragedy.

    Another beauty of this diary is to see so many survivors' children and their children here on dKos.  We can be grateful that we are here to remember.
