How I Got Here: My Family's Immigration Story

I'm here because my great-grandmother and great-grandfather were "lucky" enough to be able to escape their exile as political prisoners in Siberia, Russia for the United States, but not before my great-grandfather's 17-year-old brother was killed in a pogrom for waving the red banner of the working people at a demonstration. My great-great grandmother wheeled her teenage son's body home in a wheelbarrow.

Share your family's immigration story with the world anywhere & everywhere you can.

Polish Food with JLN

Had lots of fun making Polish food with JLN a couple weekends ago at her house in Sunset Park. We (and I use the word "we" generously - JLN is a cooking machine) made pierogis (both potato & cheese), blintzes, chicken cutlets and potato pancakes.
