In January 2004 I arrived in Israel. Within six months I had given my heart to the Holocaust Survivors in Israel. I was forever changed. After meeting
the Survivors I longed to write books about them, recording their words, remembering what they said to me. Though I shared their stories everywhere I spoke, I wanted to put them in written form so they would not be forgotten; that my words would be added to their own as witness to what I have heard and known.
Many of you have been asking me for years, “When will I write a book?” Well, I have! It is named “Why is Great-Grandma So Sad?”
Through a fictional family, the storyline incorporates true experiences from real-life Survivors. Great-Grandma’s war accounts are for youth up through adults. I have written it with truth, but without the trauma normally associated with books on this subject.
As I travel and speak I have discovered several things:
- Young people around the world do not know what the Holocaust is.
- When I mention the Holocaust to people everywhere and every age, they ask me if the Holocaust is a new video, a new movie or a new musical group…
- Adults of every age tell me they know nothing about the Holocaust because they cannot bear reading of the trauma; they are afraid of what they might read.
- What you read in the history books is only a fraction of the truth.
The sales of “Why is Great-Grandma so sad?” will benefit AHI and the Survivors.
