Imagine A World…

I popped by the New Enland Holocaust Memorial here in Boston earlier this afternoon. They have all these quotes from holocaust/concentration camp survivors on these glass panels. Out of all the quotes, this particular one stung.

Ilse, a childhood friend of mine, once found a raspberry in the camp and carried it in her pocket all day to present to me that night on a leaf.

Imagine a world in which your entire possession is one raspberry and you give it to your friend.

Speechless.

  1. Very moving. I first thought the quote referred to summer camps until I deciphered “Gerda Weissmann Klein | Holocaust survivor”. More than moving, actually.

  2. that is so moving and inspiring. I went to the auschwitz camps in Poland, such a sad day but something that EVERYONE should see in their lifetime
