In response to:
My great-grandparents came from Hungary to America just after 1900. My grandfather (the baby of the family) was born in Illinois in 1910, and he told us grandkids some of the stories his parents told him about how beautiful Budapest was. Back in 1997, I visited Poland, and we took a tour of Auschwitz and also Treblinka. There was a photo on the wall of one of those places of Hungarians being loaded into cattle cars to be brought to the death camps, and seeing that picture was like a kick in the stomach. Your grandmother and her family (and you as well) were fortunate to have been able to escape.
