Transcript of holocaust survivor
My mind racing with memories.
Silent people walk
Where living skeletons worked.
There is a silence,
But I hear the cries of my people.
A slight breeze passes,
But I feel the beating of a whip.
My hands sift through what seems like ashes
And I glimpse a sea of bodies aflame.
There is an open field,
But I see innocent people beaten.
A lone building stands in the distance,
But I see a place of death.
A place where terrible things took place
Horrors not even known to man.
With wistful eyes, I observe this place
Seeing things of the past
This place being as I left it
With an echo of remembrance. Alice & Mariana born November 26, 1903 Married Leopold Sommers in 1931 July, 1943 Alice, Leopold, and their 16 year old son Raphael were sent to Theresienstadt concentration camp 1944 Leopold Sommers died 1945, Soviet liberation of Theresienstadt 1949, Alice and Raphael move to Israel 1986, they move to London 2001, Raphael dies Eile Wiesel and Alice Herz-Sommers did not exactly go through the same. Eile went to Auschwitz while Alice went to Theresienstadt concentration camp. Alice was already married and had a child when she was forced to leave, Eile was only about 13. Eile Wiesel was the only survivor of his family while Alice had her son and some of her family living in Israel. What really helped Alice stay confident and sure that she'll survive was her music. To her music was everything, her whole life basically. EIlie stayed alive to take care of his father. There were so many things different about them, there was very few things the same. Eilie and Alice were both jewish. They also are both still alive. Compare & Contrast “I felt that this is the only thing which helps me to have hope... a sort of religion, actually. Music is God.” “When you are optimistic, when you are not complaining, when you look at the good side of your life, everybody loves you.” Alice Herz-Sommers 1903- Alice Herz-Sommer is the oldest known holocaust survivor Shes turning 107 years old this year! Thats amazing! Thank you for listening! “Only when we are so old, only, are we aware of the beauty of life.”
