Video from 2016.
Why is this so moving to me? Never mind the fact that I lost family members… THIS is a nation, a people, and a culture with a memory. It brings to mind another video:
I’m attempting to keep this blog “professional” – as in work/engineering/job search. But I was incredibly moved last night and I felt compelled to post this.
This is a picture of my great-uncle Haim Wolfinson and his son Francis. I have found their records in the Israeli and US Holocaust Museums; both sets of records have errors. (I also have his wife Flore’s and son’s birth certificates and their marriage certificate.) The reason I am so moved is that I have just completed a package of information documenting the necessary corrections to their records and am sending it to the Yad Vashem archives in Jerusalem, Israel. I will be mailing it today.
All three – a father, a mother, and a son – were sent to Auschwitz.
May their names never be forgotten, and may they rest easier knowing that their information is now corrected.
