I understand you came from Svalavar, Czechoslovakia. My mother was born there. Her name before the war was Jennie Ackermann. My born was born in 1919. If you remember my mother and her family, I would love to hear from you.

The only peace of mind I have, is that the Nazis and Hitler, yemach shemo, are being repaid for their actions by Hashem.

Amazing story, thank you! It transcends the lines of religious vs. not religious, etc. and reminds us no matter what, we are Jews.

Everybody must know this part of history

Not only JEWS but Everybody must talk, see videos about the most part of "human".
Because it must never and never begin again.
Everybody must care about antisemitism...
And for Rescapes of this tragedy: stay and stay together because it's part of a Family's heritage.
Teach and teach...
And I will never forget the pictures i saw at NATZWILLER ( FRANCE-67) ( medical' experiences...). Many JEWS of the East of Europe were deported in this "devil's house". I don't imagine about Auschwitz, but the "courage" is to see what Men did to others because of Religion and "inferiority" mind: Tziganes, Resistants,Sicks persons.
Best Regards and Shalom Yall'.
