"Your uplifting, informative presentation is such a necessary part of a fundamental social dialogue.I was particularly amazed that, you, as a holocaust survivor, could relinquish hate and fill your heart with forgiveness instead of revenge."

It is wonderful that you are constantly speaking to students as they of course were not yet born when these atrocities occurred but they should be aware of how devastating this period was to millions of innocent people so that we have safeguards to never allow it to happen again."
