This is the improbable story of how–after a separation of three-quarters of a century–an American family found and re-united with their Russian-Jewish relatives, without ever actually having looked for them. After all, it seemed certain that they had perished in the Holocaust or WWII.
The story begins in the Bronx, NY, and the happy ending–or better, new beginning– takes place in Nuremberg, Germany, during four magical days in November 2004.
