Mira Kimmelman is a tireless old fanatic who has been on the Holo circuit for decades via the Tennessee Holocaust Commission, Inc's "Speakers Bureau".
Words do not do justice to describe this fable....harrowing, dreadful, horrible are the best we can do....
It goes like this: Her mother and grandparents were gassed to death and then burned at the Treblinka death camp. Mira, her brother, and her father were sent to the Auschwitz "death factory". When Auschwitz was evacuated before the Soviet army arrived, she was "Death Marched" with 60,000 other inmates west into Germany. For two days she waled through the snow in 30 below zero temperatures. After the two-day march, she traveled for two and a half weeks on a cattle car (with no heat in 30 below temps) to Bergen-Belsen, where she had to drink her own urine. Only 2 members of her immediate family of 18 survived.
Jews like Mira are very worried about the "very real potential that the Holocaust might be repeated."
Mira tells her story to fight "hate, bigotry and intolerance", pleading that "we all belong to the same race -- the human race", because some people deny the Holocaust happened, and to prevent the real Holocaust from occurring in the future.
