Claudia Cornwall, born in the International Settlement of Shanghai, came to Canada with her parents in 1949 and was baptized as an Anglican. At the age of forty she wrote to an uncle in Vienna seeking childhood photos of her father. Her uncle sent a photo of her young father in a garden with two women, and an accompanying letter which casually mentioned that "the woman standing up was our mother, who died in concentration camp." Shaken, Cornwall set out to unearth her family's buried Jewish heritage.
