“I believe that there is a God and he wanted me to live,” said Holocaust survivor, Miriam.
She was only 14 years old when Nazis took over her town in Ukraine. Her family was split into separate camps. She did not know what happened to her father and brother, but stayed with her mother until they were separated and her mother killed.
After transferring to another camp, she and a childhood friend decided to escape.
“I thought to myself, ‘Why not try? We are getting killed either way,’” she said.
By the grace of God, they made their escape, but she later found herself in a ghetto where she reconnected with her father, who would die just days before the ghetto was liberated.
When she was free, Miriam knew she wanted to go to Israel, and that is where she now lives and receives support as part of Operation Blessing’s Holocaust survivor program. With the assistance she receives, Miriam can make ends meet.
Prayer Point: Pray for Holocaust survivors living in Israel, and beyond, who still struggle today. Pray that God will meet their needs and bless these brave people.
