Encountering my Landslayt
אין דער אלטער היים

Susan Storring

A journey to Lithuania in search of my mother’s shtetl sparked my interest in getting to know the young people who live there today. Through developing a relationship with the local school, a journey which began in great trepidation has led to surprising encounters with Lithuanians and with the Lithuania of today. The story of this relationship suggests that such friendship projects can begin to heal the deep wounds which exist between Litvaks and Lithuania, with benefits for both sides.
