From Shtetl to Sondheim

The True-ish Jewish Story of my Grandfather and Pancho Villa

For more than a century scholars have debated why Pancho Villa attacked the border town of Columbus, New Mexico on March 9, 1916—a deadly incursion and the only time in the 20th century that a major foreign army invaded the continental United States. For Stacey Ravel Abarbanel, the battle is the context for a family tale so spectacular that she always wondered if it was true: when Villa raided the village he was looking to kill her grandfather, Sam Ravel.
