New post on our blog: "A Very Rigid Search" or "Everything is Illuminated" Written by Alex who became Polish citizen last year!

"(...)What transpired next makes me feel that sometimes…just sometimes, what happens in movies and TV isn’t that far from reality. Years ago we watched an episode of “Who Do You Think You Are” with Lisa Kudrow looking for her family in Poland, and I laughed and ridiculed how she magically found her family during the search & actually met some living relatives. THESE THINGS JUST DON’T HAPPEN. At that moment… the secretary picked up the phone and made a call…. as she spoke only in Polish I didn’t know exactly what was happening, although my Mom tried to keep us filled in somewhat. A relative, a direct descendant of her brother Henryk lived less than 2 KM away, and she would call their house for us. We all sat in stunned silence. Speaking only for myself, I couldn’t even react at this point other than with stupefied excitement.(...)"
