Re: Why was I told my mother's family were German Jews when they weren't? #austria-czech

So I always heard of German Jews being referred to as "Yekkies" but never knew the meaning of that. German Jews were always known for being more "rigid" and formal. My paternal side were Hungarian/Romanian, always proud of it and very warm and loving, and my maternal side were Russian but never discussed it and I never heard them speak it. Culture does indeed play a big part in all of this.
