Storyboard Text

  • My grandfather was born in Mainz, Germany (this is our source country)
  • Luckily, my great grandfather got visas to South Africa (our destination country) and my family emigrated in 1937 to escape WW 2 (this was their push factor, they were part of a chain migration trying to escape the war)
  • My grandmother and grandfather met at Rhodes University, at a dance.
  • In 1951 my grandparents married and had 4 children, my aunts, uncle, and my dad
  • My parents met at Pesach Seder and eventually moved to Houston for the family business (which was their pull factor and this was voluntary migration )
  • They married and then had me The End
