Posting this story on the 75th anniversary of the day the killing stopped at Auschwitz is more than al ittle disturbing. It implies that the divine hand shielded these two kids but struck down 1 million other children. Such an ugly thought. Better to honestly acknowledge that who lived and who died was random. My uncle who lived through it said there were no survivors just victims. Reply

The hand of G-d needed to show up 6,000,000 times a few years ago. Reply

Thank you so much - our granny is crying, so beautiful. She said while spending time at Auschwitz her mother told stories like yours. Thank you for giving her back those memories.

I love your commentaries! Hi Chana,
I am not an Orthodox Jew but I love your videos and your commentaries- I read them every week- I send them onto my friend who lives in Borough Park and she loves them too. Thanks! Reply
