Shabbat with Yad Vashem #2

 

I am a supporter of the American Society for Yad Vashem (who recently moved their headquarters from New York City to LA). Every other month, they send me their newsletter, Martyrdom and Resistance, which always has stories of individuals who survived the Holocaust (and some who didn’t), and other stories of the good works that Yad Vashem and its supporters are doing to make sure that the Holocaust is never forgotten. In the November-December 2019 issue is the story of Edith Fox, in her own words. It seems that for many years she kept her story secret, but when she turned 90 years old, she decided she had to get her story out, because she saw the today’s children are not being taught about the Holocaust and other lessons of World War II. Here are some highlights of her story.

I was born in the town of Teplice, in Czechoslovakia. My mother was married to my father, Mano Fogel, who worked at a lumber yard. My mother had a fabric store; she was always a businesswoman. I was the youngest in my family. I had five brothers.

Service-Gathering the Fragments

 

The Holocaust took place during World War II, and millions of Jews were put to death over the years of the War, in Nazi concentration camps like Auschwitz, and in forests of Eastern Europe, and in their own towns and ghettos. Today, 75 years later, there are still Survivors alive to tell their inspiring stories. But soon, there will be no Survivors left. For many years, Yad Vashem in Israel, the great Holocaust Memorial, has been seeking and collecting memories; videos, audio records, photos, and other ephemera of Survivors. In the latest issue of Martyrdom and Resistance, the newsletter for American supporters of Yad Vashem, there was an article about the program they call Gathering the Fragments, describing their efforts to collect as many memories as they can from living Survivors and families of victims, to better document the lives of all who were affected by the Holocaust.
