From the first time I came to Beth Shalom to speak to school students, I was so impressed by your depth of feeling and understanding, demonstrated in the way in which you introduced survivors, such as me, to the students. You conveyed to them what it means to me to recall the painful experiences I suffered in the camps and during the occupation of France. Your ability to relate to these emotions has always moved me deeply. Thank you for always thinking of me on special occasions and at critical times, particularly when I was unwell. You are a rare and precious human being.
