Lorraine Braun, daughter of Holocaust survivors, talks about the importance of connecting to her family’s ancestry. Her late mother would often tell stories about her life before the Holocaust and speak about her happy home and what it was like to have to abandon her home. In 2012, Lorraine traveled with her siblings, son, and extended family to Királyhelmec in the Czech Republic – the hometown of both her parents – to visit her mother’s home because she says: “We felt that it was our inheritance to try to take back some of that sense of joyfulness that existed in the house.”
