I had the most wonderful morning with my new friend, Eva Olsson.
We recorded my Hunter’s Bay Radio show and
I will share that in another blog.
But today is May 15, 2019, and I wanted to commemorate that
75 years ago today…
It was the final journey with my family. It was the day they took us away to Auschwitz. And this moment today, which I have been given with this beautiful hostess (hostess chokes up!) allows me to keep my family’s spirit alive.
That’s what this day means.
So this day, May 15th, 1944, the Nazis took your family away—a four day
ride to Auschwitz—and your life changed forever. And on April 15th, 1945…
I was reborn. I was given the gift of life. And now I have a responsibility
to give it back, to share. (the day they were liberated by the British and
Canadian Army). Eva, after 50 years of silence has chosen the path of healing,
of helping people to NOT be silent and to accept each other. She is a light
in the world. (she has been speaking for 23 years; she is 94 years young!)
To anyone who has survived anything horrific in their lives—such as the
Holocaust most certainly—I want to send you love and know that there is
always hope for a different life.
And we can make the choice to not give up, not to be defeated.
If you have that choice, don’t allow yourself to be defeated.
Because then they win over you.
Eva, if you can live an attitude of gratitude, hope, healing and acceptance that certainly gives the rest of us the opportunity to do the same.
So I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being a light in this world.
Sending love to anyone who has been through trauma in their lives,
and know there is always hope for a new life.
There always is.
