Neil and Maurice Ghingold's parents came from Europe. His father, Abraham, met his mother, Anita Bernstein, in Key West. They married and moved first to Sparta and then to Augusta, Georgia where they opened a dry-goods business. They opened branches in Barnwell, South Carolina and later Key West. Neil and Maurice discuss the Jewish community Augusta, the synagogue, the rabbis, public school education, Jewish-Christian relations, Jewish religious education, civil rights and race relations, their time at University of Georgia and in the United States Navy during the Korean War. They spent some time in Atlanta and then returned to Augusta where they still live with their wives and children and worked in the dry-goods industry. They relate an incident their father had with a Ku Klux Klan member in his store.
