i spent the afternoon listening to the testimony of a holocaust survivor, a man who survived life in a ghetto, in auschwitz, on a death march across germany, to finally emigrate to the uk in the late 1940s after the war was over.
he was so honest, so energetic, so funny and warm and genuine and so full of hope and love for the world, even after everything he’s been through. he had such a wonderful sense of humour and was such a mischief, but the love he clearly had for sharing his story with young people was so so inspiring.
his message was simple. ‘don’t hate. never let hate in your heart.’
