Music heard on this week's show: 

​​​​​Who and what and how do we come to be were it not for family?  What endures when those lives are endangered or taken away?

LUCAS MAEHARA ROTMAN is a singer-songwriter, teacher, and descendant of families seized into the whirlwinds of two of the 20th century’s worst atrocities: the Jewish Holocaust and the Japanese internment of World War II.  As such, his very existence is a miracle.

He comes to us bearing letters, artifacts, stories that must be told, and songs that must be sung:  “Dear Miki: An All-American Family Saga.”
