Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today at lunch I went to a great presentation at the base museum to see George Rishfeld. He was a survivor of the holocaust. What really struck me was his age. He was born in 1939 and I kept thinking. He is YOUNGER than my parents. Dad was 8 years old when this man was born and 10 when he escaped the ghetto.

Had that been my father he would have been impossible to hide at 10. Most families trying to hide children were putting their own lives at risk.

All in all a very touching tale.
