Adopted woman born in WWII thought her mother had goes then 80yrs later she learns the truth

Look to any historical conflict and see how many mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, and so on had to say goodbye for their safety.

Mothers can sometimes give up their infants for adoption when circumstances are too unforgiving to raise a child.

Gerda Cole was one such mother.

The difficult times amidst World War II forced the Jewish woman to give up her daughter for adoption in 1942.

The little girl, who wouldn’t know who her real mother was, was adopted by a German couple living in England.

Gerda was only 18 when this happened.

Being a young mother is challenging enough. Imagine being one during a world war.

That little girl, Sonya Grist, lived with her adoptive parents for the rest of her life.
She would then become a mother to Stephen Grist, who would play an essential part in the rest of this story.

So it came to be that another Jewish family had their lives upended by the Nazis.

At least this time, they were both safe.

The next part of the story would play when Stephen sought Austrian citizenship.
