Here & Now producer Karyn Miller-Medzon is among the volunteers helping the family navigate the cultural and bureaucratic complexities of life in the U.S. But all the steps forward with their new lives don't erase the trauma they experienced — or their fears for the loved ones they left behind. And Shlomit Tripp, founder of the Berlin-based Bubales Puppet Theater, talks about her work using puppet shows to bridge cultural divides between Jews and non-Jews in Germany.
