Carlos Cesarman

Mexico

This is my grandfather Carlos Cesarman, a Romanian Jew who was so proud to become Mexican. My husband and I came to the USA in 1982 for graduate school. He is a published illustrator and animator and I’m a physician/scientist in AIDS and cancer research. We’ve raised our family in the New York/New Jersey area where we’re surrounded by a diverse group of friends in a place where nobody feels like an outsider.
