Holocaust Survivor Speaks, So We Never Forget

by , under Family History, Family Stories, Writing and Editing, WWII

I opened Randy Seaver’s blog, Genea-Musings, this morning and read his post from yesterday about a presentation given by Ruth Goldschiedover Sax and her daughter Sandra Sax Scheller at the Chula Vista Genealogical Society last Saturday (Jul 29, 2017). Sandra has written a book about Ruth’s life story with the title Try to Remember–Never Forget.

While the book cover’s Ruth’s life beginning with her childhood in Czechoslovakia and continuing to the present day in America, the really dramatic content deals with her years spent imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps during WWII.

In writing the book about her mother’s life, Sandra has collected documents and artifacts that deal with her mother’s concentration camp period. They were included and discussed in the presentation. I personally found it harrowing to read Randy’s report on the presentation.

In addition to giving an overview, Randy stated:

Sharing this story is a reminder to the world that the Holocaust actually happened and that all of us must act diligently to ensure that this type of atrocity never happens again.  Ruth’s is an incredible and inspirational story of horror, survival, recovery, love, family, and success.

If you wish to read Sandra’s book about her mother’s life, it is available on Amazon in paperback. Go to Try to Remember – Never Forget

Randy’s blog is here. His report on the presentation is the second item posted on Aug. 2, 2017.
