Finding our heritage through family stories and artifacts provides a mirror to the past and a window to the future.

Host LeVar Burton and his family discover some items from earlier relatives, and we meet a grandmother who inspires her grandson, family members and others with her childhood memories of surviving the Holocaust during World War II.

Illustrator: Hudson Talbott
