Bearing Witness: Paula Newman Gris - The Breman Museum

Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

With her mother performing backbreaking labor for the Nazis in the rock quarries of Transnistria, Paula Neuman Gris was the sole caretaker of her baby sister. Barely older than a toddler herself, Paula had to use her own smarts and spirited nature to survive. Experience Paula’s incredible story of determination at the Breman’s Bearing Witness, Jan. 17, 2016.

      An acclaimed new book by award-winning journalist Libby Copeland explores the rapidly evolving phenomenon of home DNA testing through her lens as an Ashkenazi Jew and that of the protagonist, Alice Collins Plebuch, whose parents are Irish American Catholics but whose DNA test indicates lots of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. In so doing, The Lost Family: How DNA Testing Is Upending Who We Are (Abrams, 2020) illuminates how we think about family, heritage, and ourselves.
