I am back in the Hunters Bay Radio Studio with my new wonderful friend,
Eva Olsson. We recorded our radio interview on a very significant date;
May 15th, 2019. We talked about her journey, which started 75 years ago on
May 15th, 1944;
I was born in Hungary, and that was the day they (the Nazis) liquidated all
the Jewish people—24 000—and we arrived in Auschwitz 4 days later.
Eva is a Holocaust Survivor, most of her family and people she knew did not survive. After 50 years of silence, Eva chose to be the change, be a light,
and share her story for over 20 years.
Silence did not heal me. So for 23 years, I’ve shared. And hopefully, when I
come in, whether it’s a church, the military, an air force base, schools, the
United Nations twice; if I touch one person, then I am a successful human being.
Well I have no doubt that your message has changed many lives, because it
is one of Hope, Healing and Acceptance for Everyone. Because hate does not
heal-it is a sickness- And if you can survive the Holocaust and find peace…
That’s what I say to my young audiences when they ask, “
How come you don’t hate?” I say, “Because hate is a sickness.
And no amount of hate will ever bring back my family. Never.”
But you can be a light in the world, you have that choice. It is a choice.
I encourage you to visit Eva’s website, she has books, an audio book
(I listened to…incredible) and more. Listen to our radio show and reach out
to Eva. If you have the opportunity to hear Eva speak or have her speak to
your school, group or organization, that would be a gift for anyone.
Eva, than you for everything that you do. I look forward to seeing your
journey in the next several years, because Eva is only 94 years young!
An Attitude of Gratitude.
If Eva can do it, the rest of us certainly can!
*The Holocaust was a genocide in German-occupied Europe between
1941 and 1945 during World War II, in which Nazi Germany, aided by local collaborators, systematically murdered some six million Jews, around two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population.
*The Auschwitz concentration camp was a complex of over 40 concentration
and extermination camps built and operated by Nazi Germany in occupied
Poland during World War II and the Holocaust. Taking into account all the victims
of Nazi persecution, the death toll rises to 17 million.
