It's interesting how people lose their Jewish heritage. My great
grandfather's second family was despatched to the Muller Christian orphanage
in Bristol when he died in 1906. They used an Anglicised name, knew nothing
of their Jewish heritage, and it was carefully concealed >from them that
their mother was the Gentile housekeeper and some had been born outof
wedlock.
Apparently into old age, all of the family retained the mores learned in
their Christian orphanage. I feel almost ashamed that living relatives who
had taken responsibility for other orphans and widows in the family, were
not willing to take in these children.
