Month of May is Holocaust observance which has been remembered this month. Yesterday, we had a speaker for this event, Ilse Altman, an eighty four year old German who escaped Germany as a teen and lost her family in the Holocaust land told us her story of those terrible days.
I was sitting in front row and listening to this elderly woman and her remembrance of the events in the small town where her family lived.
