My Father's Holocaust Secret

When Holocaust survivor Aryeh Goldberg passed away, he left his son, Tzachi, his gold watch. On opening the box, Tzachi found an old black and white photo of two women hidden behind the watch.

Chaya means life!

I had to watch this video twice to realize that Chaya Holtzberg who the granddaughter was named after was Chaya Goldberg. I am amazed at the research and and the details that the Yad Vashem does. The detective work the son did was awesome.

Wow, what a story.

Thank you to, Yad Vashem and the Goldberg family for bringing us a sad yet beautiful story. The linkage is poetic, as the Nazi's could not snuff out future generations.
