Today, I had the privilege of officiating at the funeral of a Holocaust survivor. This woman survived the ghetto and Auschwitz. As she wrote, and as we all know, it was hell on earth.

I wonder what she would have said if, back then, in the camp, someone had told her that one day, her 3 great grandchildren would be there at her funeral.

Her survival was a miracle. What she did with the next 70 years or so -- that was a victory.

Zichronah livracha - may her memory be a blessing.
