Great grandparents came in 1900. He worked in the PA coal mines. My grandmother was born in 1907 near Wilkes-Barre. Her father got black lung and could not work. There was no disability and they tried to survive by taking in boarders. They eventually had to return to Europe. My grandmother returned to the US in 1924, as a US citizen.
The ignorance on this site about Ukraine/Russia is astounding.
Written like a Putinista Paid Propagandist.
They invaded “nicely” and were “courteous”.
LOL....SMH the low levels ya’ll go to justify this evil.
That’s a good reason why Poles and Ukrainians get along so well now.
It wasn’t always the case.
I’m pretty well intrenched in the Romanian community as well (lived there for 6 months over 20 years ago). They cannot stand Russia or Russians either, for the same reasons. They also view Moldovans with high levels of skepticism due to the whole Trans-Dniester issue.
Putin’s ‘dream’ of reviving the old Soviet Union will never happen.
The Ukrainians aren’t our friends except maybe on paper. We should stop worrying about them.
There are no friends, only interests.
My Great-Grandfather founded an Iron Workers Union in NYC, a very unusual job for a Jew.
When I say stuff like that, about half the time I get referred for a mental health evaluation.
My dad’s parents were both Ukies, right off the boat.
My mom’s grandparents were Polish and they were off the boat.
My dad’s mother was NOT happy about his choice of a girlfriend/wife.
That is very true.
Saw it firsthand in my family.
My sister made the mistake once, of telling a friend that we were Russian, in front of my grandmother. Oooppsss.
