NM0018 – Falk Family Finale

- Dear Friends, I am so excited to bring you the final installment of the Falk family story. This is part four of a series about Holocaust survivor Gabrielle Falk and her family. This episode focuses on how Gabrielle's parents, Walther and Ellinor Freund survived the Holocaust and how the family reunited after the war. While I know my work on this series can never really do the story justice, I hope it will at least give you a glimpse at an amazing person and help us all to never forget. Thank you to Irene Uffrecht-Peters for the photos from…

NM0017 – Kristallnacht

- Hello Friends and Happy Valentine's week! As promised, this is part three of a four part series on Holocaust survivor Gabrielle Falk and her family. Specifically, this episode focuses on Gabrielle and her parents during the war.

What started as a simple recording session to document one woman's life's story as a favor to her family has turned into a three part (or maybe more... who knows?) series. After all, how does one tell the story of someone's…

NM0014 – Family Historian

- Hello Friends! Have you ever undertaken a project that you were excited about only to wonder if you are out of your league? Well, this week's story is like that for me. In fact, the story is so important that I have decided to turn it into a two part series (which has never been done before here on New Mexicast). So this week's episode is part one. It is about an amazing man named Stephen Falk. He has made it his personal mission to research his family tree and to preserve what he can after so much damage…
