"Don't tell anyone that you're Jewish" – Evgenia Pisman's grandmother repeated again and again
Having gone through the Holocaust and Jewish persecution in Eastern Europe, Evgenia’s grandmother didn’t want Evgenia to suffer a similar fate, and so decided to conceal her religion.
“I remember my grandmother praying”, Evgenia recalls. “She never told me anything about it. Her lips were moving, her look was directed inwards. Once I asked her – ‘in which God do you believe, grandma?’ In the Jewish God – she answered quietly.”
