“There is a trend these days to take a breath and look back at how we got to where we are. Our reasons for trying to record the story of our family were more prosaic. We could feel the lives of our late parents slipping into the past and we wanted to recognise that they had been here and had made a difference. They may not have been considered exceptional people in the eyes of the world, yet they had most certainly been so to us. In trying to write about their lives and the people they had been, we opened a Pandora’s box of family history. We discovered that the story of our grandparents’ lives and those of their forebears mirrored the lives of so many people that we knew. They were lives often touched by persecution and hardship but balanced by family and always by humour and love.”
