Just found out I’m a Jew

In closing up my elderly parents’ home, I was given some family news I did not expect from a relative I haven’t kept up with. It seems she did genealogical research and found out my grandmother’s family was deported in 1912 because they were Jewish. They came to America again a few years later and claimed to be Lutheran on their documents. They adopted Christianity and kept the secret their whole lives. At 62, I found out my family was Jewish.
