I believe that my speaking schedule, which extends through June 2016, is as heavy as, and probably heavier than, any in recent memory.
The reason? -
Yad V'Shem , the major Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem (
), stated a short time ago that the average age of a Survivor is 83, and that on any typical day, 40 survivors pass into eternity. That means that in 10 years' time, there will be no one left to tell the truth of what happened in those dark days of the Holocaust. And so, we, the survivors, must put aside our personal comforts, and go to the schools - public, private and parochial - to give a first-hand account of what happened some 70 years ago.
Please let me share my schedule, and perhaps you, your school, or your organization might like to join me along this long, arduous road of truth.
