She also talks about an upcoming event on April 28 where all can learn more about the topic.

Eleanor was joined by Marilyn Amster Gould, author of Son of a Son, which traces the story of a thirteen year-old named Myer as he journeys to the United States all alone-how he learns through success and defeat, love and loss, and the challenges of generations to generations.

They talked about how our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents made the journey from Europe or the Middle East to the "Golden Medina"-the Golden land of America.
