John Kerry’s brother searches for ancestors in Czech Republic

Cameron Kerry, the younger brother of the US Secretary of State John Kerry, is in the Czech Republic searching for his family’s ancestors. Mr Kerry, who arrived with his wife on Friday, is set to visit the town of Horní Benešov, in the northeast of the country where his grandfather was born. Cameron Kerry told the news website it was ironic that while he himself converted to Judaism, his grandfather, Fritz Kohn became a Catholic before moving to the United States in the early 20th century.
