Today, the day after we celebrated Christmas, I was told about my Jewish lineage.
To say I was stunned would be an understatement.
All my life, I thought I was just Irish and Indian but, it turns out that there is German blood in there as well. Jewish German blood.
My mother spoke to me about my lineage today and told me stories about my grandmother and HER mothers escape from Germany right before the Holocaust. I didn’t ask but wondered why she waited to tell me. I’m 46 years old for crying out loud!
Now I have to wonder what else I’ve not been told that I SHOULD have been told…
