Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending a homeschool event at my daughter’s church. The guest speaker was Severin Fayerman, a 90-year-old survivor of Auschwitz and Buchenwald. He shared his fascinating story with the children–ranging from kindergarten to high school seniors–and never lost their attention for a moment. He very admirably avoided relating all the horror he saw while still making it clear how truly awful that era was. He’s interesting, engaging, energetic. Most of all, I enjoyed watching how kind he was with the children when they wanted to ask questions.
He did two assemblies yesterday. Remember, he’s 90–almost 91. My goodness.
You can find his book on Amazon, if you’re interested. You can get it on your Kindle, or a paperback or hardback, although I wouldn’t spend the money for the hardback. The title is A Survivor’s Story. Well worth reading.
