    On being a first generation Child of Holocaust Survivors My family and I came to the United States in 1968 from Prague, Czechoslovakia. My parents were Jewish, and they were both orphans, having lost their immediate and extended families in concentration camps. Without a strong Jewish community in Prague, they felt isolated.
