In commemoration of Yom Hashoah, I share the wisdom of Edie Eigerman-Schiff, may her memory be for a blessing. Edie was the grandmother of my dear friend Daniella, and I first heard Edie’s story when Daniella spoke to my son’s religious school class a few years ago. The embedded short video tells the little-known story of the women on the Nazi’s first official transport of Jews to Auschwitz and was created following the 2017 journey of three survivor families to commemorate 75 years since the transport. Daniella is the singer at the end of the video.
