Naomi Gryn's Personal Journey

Naomi Gryn went to India, tracing the footsteps of her late father Hugo Gryn, whose first job as a rabbi was in Mumbai. Fifty years on, she found out how things have changed for the Jews of India.
Take a look at her personal journey in the gallery above. The archive images of Hugo and Jackie Gryn are from Naomi's personal collection and the others are by photographer Ashima Narain.
