Introduction to a Speech on this Year's Topic: What it means to be a hero?
How do you survive with your children while hiding from a government and its soldiers who are hunting you down? How is it possible to survive and raise 2 children hidden from the world for three years and yet these two children thrive. They develop and grow up...hiding from haters who have invaded their country, their city, their neighborhood. Invaders who persecute and kill just because they hate Jews. And yet somehow both children are happy children. I recently had the honor of meeting a survivor of The Holocaust. Her name is Louise Lawrence-Israel and her parents, I believe without question, are heroes. Please allow to me explain and tell their story.
