I’m in Bosnia in 2003 and a Bosnian notices my name and says, “Shalom.” He thought I was Jewish. I then visited a synagogue in Sarajevo and was met by a Jewish man named Schreckengast. He claims we’re Jewish (as his family is) and that we migrated up to Germany only later. I said that’s impossible as it’s a German name—--maybe the opposite happened. He then looked perplexed and the conversation ended.
