A Portrait of a Grandfather who Overcame Adversity to Start a New Life
My grandfather was a captain in the Polish army, right before the Nazis invaded.
He spent five years in a concentration camp until liberation by the US Army.
He met my grandma at a liberated camp in Germany. They married, took a free ride on a US Navy vessel to Boston, then a train to Chicago with a few dollars in their pocket to start a new life.
Whenever I’m about to complain, I think of their story and what they went through. And I shut up quick. ~shared by @35_gauge
