I was so overwhelmed by this video that, regardless of the situation, I smile and thank Hashem for the opportunity to show Him the greatest gift He's given me, RESILIANCY ... Toda Rabe Adonai !

Who has that Note that was in the shell?

Amen Rabbi!

Viktor Franks's 'Man's Search for Meaning' is a staple of my library - and I've been giving away copies to friends. Just reading Edith Eger's 'The Choice' which echoes the main point - the ability to choose even within the most dire of situations. Highly recommend both books to everyone...especially for those who are bound to the notion of their status as victims.

when faith isn't lost , their is always a light at the end .

sometimes it takes , learning of the hand of God in times of trouble to realize that, " this too shall pass" , amazing story told by rabbi Tzvi Sytner, and his profound words of the story told. Many thanks I need to see and hear this.

Find how you're doing this too!

Many -- if not all -- people are already doing such types of things. Make a list of them, and you may see that you are very free, and the more you help others, the freer you become! And this is very much the Passover message, as the rabbi is saying.

Finding the miracle in adversity

The important takeaway for me... finding the greatness in all circumstances, especially the most challenging. Yes, miracles happen, but shifting ones attitude and finding the greatness is a pathway to miracles and ultimately freedom. An inspiring message!

Excellent documentary. One point however: The Germans were the enemy. Don't try to be politically correct by referring to them as Nazis.
We don't refer to the brave American fighting men and women during the war as Democrats or Republicans. They were Americans. The enemy were the GERMANS. Thank you.

Blayne Day, March 27, 2021 9:51 AM

Excellent Mr. Gaum! I've been saying the same thing for years!

Finally some one else sees and admits this Truth! I lived in Germany with the USAF and US Army and you are 100% correct! I owned a very nice home in Shwedelbach Germany but sold it because the country even today makes me ill.
What the "world" doesn't know about(or even care about) is the fact that GERMANS stole every piece of Jewish property from Jews in GERMANY who they killed and who could not protect there property because they were dead. ! They changed the titles & deeds of the property with lies and forgery. And, these lies and forgeries are still in effect till this very day! I know because as I was traveling around Israel for 9 months in 2017 I met a man at a shoe repair shop in the Carmel center in Haifa Israel who's family owned a home in Saarbruken Germany that was stolen from them...I told him I would pay for my lawyer in Saarbruken to help get his house back. His mother was still alive at the time but he didn't seem interested in my offer...Anyway, the whole point of this story is to highlight the INJUSTICES that are still unresolved in GERMANY till this day! Because of your comment Mr. Gaum I'll make another attempt to help him get the house back. Blayne Day USAF retired.
