New York

Grade 2, New York
Country of Origin: Czechoslovakia

My dad came from Czechoslovakia. He came when he was 2 in 1950. His family came to America to live in a democratic country. A couple of his family mates came before him--aunts and uncles in the 1940s.

My father came in a ship and a train. My father couldn't bring anything. He didn't really have anything. He went to school in America but not the Czech Republic. He doesn't know what his impression was. Neither does his family but they did feel good to see America for the first time.
