A lot comes to mind when I think of my heritage. Although my parents and I were born and raised in Montreal, I still have a strong connection to my Polish roots. Shortly after the Second World War, my grandfather Peter Neudorf, fled from his home in Poland, and came here as an adolescent; along with his mother and brother. During the war, he was kept in work camps, where he lost his father and sisters.
