this story brought big tears to my eyes. my mother is just like this daughter, she lost her mother during the war at the age of 4 and she always wished to move away from judaism, to the point that when I was young she actually wanted me to marry a non-Jew, so that the children won't be marked as Jews. i was not brought up religious, but i intuitively followed the same logic as the young rabbi in the story - if they hate us so much, why bring one of them home, why hand them the victory?

I recommend this book....

I also recently read it and found it fascinating - and well written. I hadn't seen the video interview before and was glad to have a link to that. Thanks for your interesting blog, Rabbi Simmons.

Most incredible story I've heard

A post holocaust miracle.
