Mother side from Germany Russia Italy and Colombia. 2. What motivated your ancestors to leave their homeland for a New World? When did they leave? If your ancestors were always in North America, what was their life like prior to European contact? They never came to North America. My dads side they were looking for a better lifestyle. My moms side they left Germany because of the World War and left to Colombia. 3. What hardships did your ancestors face in previous generations, either when they first arrived or soon after contact? What did they do to overcome any hardships? Do they recall any prejudice that was experienced? My mom side suffered from the war. They had persecution due to being Jews with the holocaust. When they arrived to Colombia they always kept it a secret so they wouldn’t suffer. 4. What did your ancestors do in the previous two or three generations? How did this influence what the family does today? We don’t have much information because most of them died in World War II. 5. What languages did your ancestors speak? What has happened to these languages in your family today? They spoke Spanish and German.

Christmas, New Years and Birthdays. For example Christmas we celebrate Christmas Eve more than Christmas day. 7. What do you know of the meaning behind your family name? How, if at all, has it changed over the years? Do you know the reason for any changes? My grandpa changed his last name in order to protect the family from the Jewish persecution. 8. How are the experiences of your family similar to or different from those faced by various immigrants or refugees today? My family came out of a war while the people now a days come for a better lifestyle. 9. In what ways was this exercise easy or difficult for you to do? Under what circumstances might an exercise like this be difficult for a student to do? What might you do as a teacher to modify it in special circumstances? It wasn’t hard thanks for my parents help. It would be harder if I didn’t have any help from my family.
