By Fredie Adelman
Summer is the season for travel – and for some of us it means traveling to Europe to trace family history and commemorate the Shoah. Fredie Adelman, the director of the Smithsonian Associates program in Washington DC, and her sister were both named after relatives murdered in death camps by the Nazis and had long wanted to make such a trip. They did so last summer, accompanied their daughters and visiting sites in the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, and Austria. In this report, she describes parts of the trip and reflects on the experience.
