Janet Wolff's essay is structured around the move from England to the United States, with the dislocation of perception that comes with that shift. It operates as part memoir and part family history, these two strands also intersecting with other people's stories. Visual images also play a part in the story – paintings, diary pages and facsimile documents.

Keywords:   Family history, Memoir, Transatlantic travel, Jewish immigration, Refugees, Windscale disaster
