Being Guided From Above

Post Written By: Amy Degen
I am not a spiritual person and don’t believe in the afterlife, but something greater than me is guiding my journey with respect to Bialystok.  My maternal grandfather, Henry Gold, left Bialystok around 1928 to move to Brooklyn, New York.  My mom was an only child, and both her parents died when she was in her early 20s.  I am named for these grandparents.  Continuing this awful pattern, my mom died when I was 26.  There was no one in my life to tell me about Bialystok.
