    How fascinating!! I just read the info & will be passing it on to our students & LA teachers. They choose a book about the holocaust as part of the Language Arts curriculum.

    What a powerful story, Sonia. And what a selfless woman your mother was. I think all of us of that generation can be grateful for those who believed in the future and opposed those who wanted to end it for entire populations though genocide. The greatest generaton was truly worldwide. Peter

    The persecution of Jewish people during the Nazi regime has always made me feel sad. It begs the question of how people can show such racism. I’m glad that your mother was so strong through this ordeal and that others risked their lives to help. Wonder story!!
