Amen - It shall be so at the appointed time

I've found this to be true when people from the past reappear in my life and bring back memories from our common past. Shana Tova to all

It’s in one of his maggid books. Unfortunately I don’t remember which one

From one 2g to another. I have been an orphan too long. My dad died over 35years ago, my mother over 25 Recently I discovered that in addition to the death of most of my family in the Holocaust, I also had two half sibling. My story is similar to many of yours. I ask that G-d comfort us today as we remember parents and other love ones. For those who possess holocaust guilt I pray you will listen to me. Most of us were too young to understand the misery experiences by our parents, we could not empathize nor did most of us ask the questions we could have. We simply were afraid of hurting our parents and could not bare seeing them suffer. I have spent a life time trying to find out what I simply could of asked them about our family. I am certain many of you are in the same boat. I beg you, your parents and mine lived for us. They sacrificed everything for us. REMEMBER the good you experienced with them. I will say Yizkor and Kaddish for them. rabbi dr. Bernhard Rosenberg
