"The separated-twins story is a chestnut of American journalism—one that is guaranteed to gain national exposure, along with stories of pets that have trekked across the country to find their masters. The appeal of the separated-twins story is the implicit suggestion that it could happen to anyone."
Back to quotes in this documentary:
In terms of how they parented their children the three families were quite, quite different. David's father stood out. There was nobody in the world like his son. He was so proud of him. Whatever he did was wonderful. Bobby's father was very busy as a doctor and didn't have the time to be with Bobby that David's father had, but was as devoted to him as possible. The most traditional was Eddy's father... who was rather strict. He was the boss. He made the rules and Eddy was supposed to follow.
I... It's not justifiable what they did. You know what? Coming from the Holocaust, our family has a knowledge that when you play with humans... you do something very wrong.
Being in business with my brothers damaged our relationship. There were conflicting work ethics, and my father had passed away. He really anchored us together as a group and kept the peace so to speak,
-They started to argue like kids would argue, you know. And they didn't have that opportunity, that gift of being able to be brothers for 18 years. When you are living in a family of children you learn how to adjust to each other. If I don't like the way you do this, I can get angry, or I can learn to compromise. But they met as adults. And had never learned how to live with each other.
We found the ways that we were alike and we emphasized them and we wanted to be alike. We were falling in love with each other. I think there were superficialities. They liked the same things and they had similar interests, but deep down they were different. They were not a case study of biology being destiny. I've come to believe genes and the environment are close competitors. You could say that we drift in the direction that our genes tell us to go but it doesn't mean you are destined to be one person or another. I believe that I'm still here today because of the foundation that was given to me by my parents. I believe that absolutely made a difference in terms of struggling with whatever demons I struggle with. I believe nature and nurture both matter. But I think nurture can overcome nearly everything.
