“It’s hard to fathom that something as tangible as shoes could survive when the precious lives they held did not.”
Nancy Sprowell Geise, Auschwitz #34207: The Joe Rubinstein Story

“Grandfather was right, wasn’t he? Because God loves us, he allowed even bad to happen, for without freedom, there is no life. Didn’t I learn that in the camps?”

“The boy has never returned to Poland. I never had a desire; there was nothing to go home to. My family was my home, and they were all gone.”
