Brief Bio

What does Auschwitz mean to you?

A Hellish nightmare created by Hitler and his executioners to eradicate the Jewish people of Europe!

My message for future generations is…

 Indifference and Apathy in the face of Evil, are the enablers of Evil to raise its nefarious head! 

Who will be accompanying you on this journey?

My daughter/companion, Mrs. Bert Kaplowitz. 

My daughter is very aware and keenly attuned to all issues regarding the Holocaust.
