"I have lived through many wars & have lost everything many times - my husband, my mother & my beloved son. Yet life is beautiful&  I have so much to learn & enjoy. I have no space nor time for pessimism & hate.  I have had such a beautiful life. Life is beautiful, love is beautiful, nature & music are beautiful. Everything we experience is a gift, a present we should cherish & pass on to those we love". Alice Herz Sommer, pianist & survivor of Theresienstadt.

How many people remain in good shape, both mentally and physically, at the age of 106? The answer, of course, is very few but, as I write this on her 106th birthday, Alice Sommer Herz is among those exceptional few. And how many have the gift of forgiveness? And how many are free of hatred? Gigi Sommer has both of those qualities. I have never met anyone else with her depth of perception and natural wisdom.

Movie Review: The Lady In Number 6  There are no words to describe this film other than saying SEE IT NOW. It is not a typical Holocaust story because it is more about a woman so filled with love, joy and gratitude that you come away feeling blessed to have spent 38 minutes visiting with her.  After reading my post I know you will agree.
