Mimi Sheraton loves bialys — those Jewish crusty rolls with the toasted onion center. She picks one up every morning from her local Manhattan bakery. Sheraton set out to visit the Polish town of Bialystock to find the people who invented this magical bread. But the thriving town of 50,000 didn't survive the Nazis.
