I just met a holocaust survivor. Pretty surreal. What do you say to a man who has seen so much, who has experienced such horror? What could I say? “I’m sorry” just doesn’t seem sufficient.
I wanted to express my sense of loss. I wanted to let him know that I’ll never forget what happened. That I’ll do everything in my power to stop discrimination, injustice, and genocide. But all I did was thank him for the book. I just couldn’t say more.
