My father’s family were passionate Zionists especially my grandmother. My father was sent to Zionist school in Slonim where he learned ivrit b’ivrit. This was in about 1910. After WW1 his father decided to emigrate to America where 2 sisters already lived. Sadly, my grandfather died before the trip with my father. My grandmother wanted to emigrate to Palestine. She sent my father alone (age 14). When my father grew into adulthood he tried to bring his mother, my aunts and uncle to NY. She refused! She only wanted to emigrate to Palestine. The all perished in the war!

1924 is when Yehuda Amichai is born in Germany. It offers some context along with the Putch of 1923

lib sher

Thank you, Judy. Part of my family comes from Belarus, Minsk gubernia. Slonim had a highly regarded reputation as a religious location where Rabbis would come to visit and those in surrounding areas would go to visit them in Slonim.

We are "immigrants" more in the sense of not living (or studying) in the same place we grew up (or growing up in multiple places) albeit perhaps in the same (quite large) country.
Joanne
03:05:04
Exactly my story- at 9, 11, 13, few months before my Bat Mitzvah, many years before you Suzanne. It was wonderful, fascinating.
