Have you ever wondered where your ancestors came from? About what could have moved them to leave home and family behind forever and seek to start a new life in a new country? About the place and living conditions prevalent at the time? Or about their social position and what it meant for daily life? And how life “back home” went on without them?
This blog is a collection of short stories of those who left and of those who stayed behind. They are stories about birth and death, of fortune and misfortune, success and failure, of tears of joy and tears of sorrow. They are stories about falling down and getting up again. They are simply real-life stories.
