Severin Fayerman

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.

    Next time we go to Poland, it will be a week-long trip. We will visit Elim Christian Center. Then we will go to Krakau and Auschwitz. Then we will go to Poznan so Janan can do some family research.

    Everyone should visit Auschwitz once. Very few people want or need to return.

        I agree. I was there with the choir in 1992. All summer, we goofed off everywhere we went. Except Auschwitz. Nobody said a word the entire time we were there. The birds don’t sing there. You can feel the evil in the air.
