This show is really neat. Specially for those of you who are into history Thumbsup
I watched my first episode a few days ago.

Official Show Site: http://www.nbc.com/who-do-you-think-you-are/

I watched the one with Vanessa Williams and it was so neat to see her on a journey to discover her ancestors, I even cried towards the end when she cried because it was so awesome to discover all that information of where you came from.



I am looking forward to Ashley Judd as well, she's one of my favorite actresses :)

I haven't watched the show, but I've seen commercials for it. It looks interesting, I just usually don't remember when it's actually going to be on...it seems like I see the commercials in the morning so I'm too tired to really remember Laughing Is there going to be an episode with Tim McGraw? I thought I had seen a commercial for it last week.

Yes, I missed it though.

I saw the one with Lisa Kudrow and I think I cried throughout the entire episode lol bawling
What a sad and tragic family history about war and death in the Holocaust.

Lisa and Tamara visit a villager, Maria, who lived during the massacre in Ilya. After showing Maria pictures, Lisa learns that she knew Gertrude (Lisa's grandmother)–they actually went to school together and they were like family. Maria retells the story of when the Germans came to town and recounts the haunting tale of what they did to the Jewish families: looting their homes and burning down their houses. According to Maria, some Jews escaped to the forest and others were collected by the Germans. Maria remembers trying to hide a small girl under her bed, but terrifyingly the girl was found by the Germans and thrown into a fire. Lisa feels the sadness of the history surrounding her as she stands in her Grandmother Gertrude’s yard.

It was called “the selection,” where the Nazis used an ice storage unit in the ground as a mass burial unit for 900 Jewish men, women, children and babies from Ilya. All the Jews that were selected to be killed were ordered to remove their clothes and then they were shot on site, falling directly into the frozen pit. Then, the Nazi soldiers smeared oil on the walls of the building and set it on fire.

War is just terrible... Blue

But I was so glad that there was a happy ending though... to have found a family member who survived made it all worthwhile...
