Living History

This week I had the opportunity to visit for the first time Bitola, Macedonia, the birthplace of my Ladino-speaking grandfather. After hearing so many stories, I could not have imagined how emotional it would be to see it first-hand. I stood in the doorway of my family's house from before WWII, I laid stones on the graves of distant relatives in the historic cemetery, I performed for the beautiful people of Bitola, and I felt overwhelming love from the city for my family's history. I can't wait to return.
