Felicia Fuksman was born in Lodz, Poland. She lived with her parents, two brothers, and two sisters. Felicia’s father was a tailor. The family was very poor….
Two years ago today, my grandmother, Felicia Fuksman, passed away. She was the strongest, most compassionate and loving person I’ve ever known. She was also a Holocaust Survivor and spent a huge portion of her life educating others about the atrocities of the Holocaust through her own story. I vowed to share her story, every year, on the anniversary of her death, to do the same. Not only do I post this in loving memory of both of my grandparents and all survivors, but as injustice and intolerance continues to grow around the globe, I post it as a reminder of what can happen if we let it. Please feel free to share and repost.
