“From Generation to Generation” - The Story of Yisrael AviramYad Vashem
The following video tells the story of Holocaust survivor Yisrael Aviram (Kalisky). Yisrael was born in 1926 in the city of Lodz, Poland. He was thirteen years old when the Second World War broke out.
In 1940, Yisrael and his family were forcibly deported to the city’s ghetto, where he joined a Zionist youth group. In August 1944, he was sent to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp. Yisrael’s mother was murdered there, and his sister was sent to a labor camp. He was transported, along with his father, to the Jaworzno concentration and labor camp, where they performed forced labor mining coal.
In January of 1945, Yisrael and his father were liberated in the Blechhammer concentration camp. After reuniting with Yisrael’s sister Henia, and following two months of wandering through Europe, the three arrived at the La Spezia port in Italy. In 1946 they immigrated to Israel, arriving upon the Dov Hoz illegal immigrant ship, and were among the founders of the Ramot Menashe kibbutz. Yisrael has three children and nine grandchildren.
The film is part of the “Witnesses and Education” series, a joint production of the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem and the Center for Multimedia Assisted Instruction of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The series shows survivors recounting their life stories — before, during, and after the Holocaust. Each title is filmed on location where the events originally transpired.
Will Cheney’s New Heart Make Him Nicer?
Some medical experts think it’s possible.
The 71-year-old former vice president has been recovering after Sunday’s heart transplant at a hospital in Northern Virginia. News reports say he’s been able to stand and is receiving support from his family. Cheney has had five heart attacks, the first at age 37, and has been on the transplant list for 20 months.
Cheney is also a feisty political figure who political observers say reshaped the power of the vice president’s office during his two terms as President George W. Bush’s second-in-command. Medical experts say that heart transplant patients often undergo a change of philosophy, personality and values once they recover.
This is so telling. A great example of how the Left views the world. They are so sure of their own righteousness, that if you disagree with them, you must not be a “nice person”. Therefore, you can be dismissed and even treated cruelly, because you are “beneath” them and not worthy of respect and congeniality. Discover… is a tool of the Left and uses it’s ‘science’ shill to promote Leftist ideals. The Left destroys everything beautiful and replaces it with crap.
- 69% of Americans prefer a diplomatic approach instead of an Israeli attack on Iran, according to a new poll from the University of Maryland
- 38% of Republicans polled favor military action by the Israeli government, a percentage likely to surprise experts and policymakers
- 17% of Democrats and independents polled agreed with their Republican counterparts, preferring military action over diplomacy source
Who gives a flying fuck what Americans think at this point?! Israel should do what ever is necessary to protect itself! Did Maryand (my alma mater) conduct a poll in 1935 too?
