Is there anyone else here, on Cafe Mom who has a survivor of Holocaust, Jewish and non-Jewish, in their family or among friends?
I am putting it in the Political Events section, since we dont have a History section on here.
My grandmother was. She watched her whole family be slaughtered. She was pregnant when they came for her. When her baby was born they took him and experimented on him until they killed him. Her little sisters were gang raped and beaten to death they were very young only 7 and 8 years old. My great grandfather and great grandmother were told they were going to have a shower but were gassed. My grandmother got married to a German man who helped her after Auschwitz was finally liberated. They married and had 4 kids they moved to America when my dad was only a few months old. They all became citizens and tried to put the past behind them.
My grandmother was a strong woman and lived a long and happy life. She missed her family and supported charities her whole life that helped holocaust survivers and their families. Her family was wealthy and she worked to find their treasures. She found some.
