1 What, me worry?  Thu, Jan 27, 2011 11:26:23am

This is interesting. My mother has 3 or 4 photo albums of her father’s family (my grandpa) from Poland. I think that’s unusual. But we have all his siblings and his parents. 6 escaped Poland. His parents and I believe 2 siblings and their families perished in Auschwitz. One nephew survived to go on to live in Israel where my cousins are today.

When I was a young girl, I’d spend hours looking through those albums wondering what they were like. I was in awe of my great grandfather, whom of course, I never met, but my grandad was the spitting image of him. This is kinda weird, but they had the same hands. My grandfather had these magnificent hands. Big and sturdy, and perfectly proportioned.

So weird, I dreamed about him last night, now that I’m thinking about it! I miss him so much. He passed away on 02/20/2000. Isn’t that something?

This is a good thing. We need to remember not just the Holocaust itself but also the lessons from it.

That’s wonderful.

When I visited my German grandmother before she died she told me about one of our uncles who was killed by the Nazis when they invaded Poland. I hate Nazis within every fiber of my body.
