You know when I talk to my grandma who lost both her mother and father in the concentration camp of channel? No. According to the Red Cross. She talked to me in very graphic terms about having to say goodbye to them at Vienna station at a train station. Heading, for Prague, and that she had what can be best described as another breakdown. When she came to England without any money at all, but just a sister. Who Live nearby and they were housemates. They were around city is old and then. Something deep inside them. Made them want to live reconstitute their lives. Find Mary. And that's that's that's what they did. They settled down they lived in in one room in Sutton Coldfield. On the outskirts of Birmingham and they started to rebuild their lives and when I think about the progress they cheap in Birmingham by nineteen, fifty five, they had their own shopping business they had their own with mortgage. My grandpa on the poos because he was a football expert, he wants something like four hundred pounds because a lot of money and he bought a fridge in a television and all these kind of beautiful things. They had two children, my mother and my uncle. and. They got their together from nervous breakdown to my grandma was joyous. It's a very strange thing. She you know obviously me as a grandchild is younger is a very big big focus of joy and you know I want to talk to you about your the depths of despair that you had and that you like my grandma reached for. Forgiveness that has enabled you to rebuild your mentality, rebuild your life and produce such a purposeful life in your ninety. Just give us a an idea of how you can go from the depths of despair to forgiveness and then this purpose. While took me a long long time but of course, as nine, hundred, fifty, in nine, hundred, fifty, six, they had the best of our Fast Delta to. And that was for me actually a big change of attitude set a miracle because you know. Have to tell you in said liquid we got in the cab in bowl matter does it down a peg pressed? Didn't have our monthly yet. And Venit Cape to having cheated nothing worked. and. So I've established I wanted family because it's out send you know half a continuation of life. and.

But that wasn't like said several people who said it wouldn't Banjo MCI or civil at gentleman. and. And that start to do. Long for Asta Homeland Massa would never set foot says it's a school out. I'm not going to go back set. But long trousers mountains lakes are so had been and event as a feminine to visit at conflict as to you know we had no family nobody would be new. and.

So it was always been state vis again, pans of us all this picture of Anna and things about Amnon, books about Amit and who assists on it. You know so it must have been spooky for children. And even now as still got sort of complex about this. But you know you don't know tell you tells them that the little girl died in it's it's very difficult to make decisions like said.

Yeah at changed our at the Joe to. To initiate what is happening now world as well. Thank you ever. Very profound words which I will listen to. But let me ask you this specific question My last interview was with the Hungarian Ambassador to the UK. His name is sentence Kumon he is a cultured knowledgeable man with a great deal of. Mench skied I think is the word. Knowledge of the Jewish community in Hungary the Jewish community in New York many of them of course, are of Hungarian descent on thinking of Satmar undercoat's Hubbard Romanian as well. And he knew a lot from his time as consul general in dealing with the religious Jews of of New York, and he certainly helped in organizing the return of long abandoned graveyards in Hungary. Full the Williamsburg Satmar people to go on pilgrims again to go and visit their old rebuffed him. I. Only did the interview because he referred to the Hungarian Holocaust that he took responsibility. That Hungarian officials and the government's. Involved in the murder of four hundred thirty four thousand Hungarians. Between May and July nineteen, forty, four just. Nine or ten very very. Appalling weeks towards the end of the second world, war and just on the up came in via asked in May. and. Masan. ME. Out Chosen. To work in Canada I don't know if you've heard sept was a nickname kinda being go pled Dan show on. They're all sing switch but there comes but took her because. They get. We had to leave every safe at address all taken to this place called. And we had to sort out six. Investigated all back to Germany and I saw Joe Sangari and juice cabinet because cannot.

Exactly, hockey my life because every worked with weeks in. Canada till the blood-red coming anymore. And we had more food because we found food and it wasn't heavy work and so on. So NFL field sometimes guilty because of those people were killed advance collected said May June a debate, the job. Of. Somebody else would have done it if I, one. Eighty percents of the Hungarian Jews in that Short period of time was sent straight to the deaths. Passos at yet you are an actual I witness to that. My my question is a very, very simple one. How do I. Make Peace with this knowledgeable and Culture Bam, Info because he is a supporter of Israel. Hungary is quite a fervent supporter of Israel with inside the European. Union. They are often outlaw is against the other twenty seven nations. I. Hear it regularly or Bannon Netanyahu. On very good terms, there's a lot of cooperation and yet I think about my great grandparents. And Mit desecrating them memory by reaching out to make peace you know that that's something that I need your coaching on to understand forgiveness. Well I'm. That's that's his Hispanic feel guilty. At don't think so. What you're saying well. You know I I. Ask Him. You haven't asked him. He wasn't interior such but he showed a deep. Sadness and regret not only at the. Responsibility that he felt he should say on behalf of Hungary, but also that he should. From a moral perspective and because of the past reach out to the Jews. Of the world. And the Israelis and when he said, you have a moral drive. You don't need to think you just do. and these are very very powerful words and obviously they are not universal words as spoken by the entire nation of hungry. But they came from him and I took them on face value. We are in touch now. Ambassador but I'm grateful that we have in Israel. And you know I think Germany as a whole She has helped to build up his house if given an enormous amount of money and decay and a lot of German people into work keyboard said helped. and. Save apologized for. Don. and. Still. Pay Out money. At least you don't have the alleged them Australia on the other hand severe his many in the camps the heads of Commanders Valley Austin in February God's address also in men for answers and evens emerged offset. Disabled. A German cheated on standby be Austrian Nazis. And Save Save victims themselves, which is, of course not. So. You don't enforce Germany obviously have accepted and that can forgive them. All stay unless because it's still sing. San Doing but it was that he might say I'm doing as well which brings us onto the question about older Nazis towards the end of their lives showing absolutely not remorse for what they did the question in the paradigm of your forgiveness. Can you forgive someone who doesn't want to be forgiven? Who doesn't can well talked about this for set by a sink like any agenda, the German people who are solely yes as suddenly forgiveness. Table, law back to Germany and give talks children on all that event intest advantage solely about what happened. And feel guilty from once again, pennants have dumb and. But if said, don't a bit said to have done terrible sings. As things don't must be evil people and in my opinion, they don't deserve our forgiveness. You buy can come at Albertville has say. I just I just want to come back to you know watching this interview obviously of Johnny. We'll down before programming and all questions missing listened to have up up for a long long time. You see what what comes across the screen and every time I speak to you and to your audiences around the world I'm sure he's a very positive of disposition. That's great.

So I go to Alwa- But At night sometimes as still sing however mismatch. Mismatch browser however miss from Austria. But. A. Have made peace what has happened I find your generation astounding in city the these are the very emotions, experiences and future orientations of my Momma Oliver Sholom. She was nonstop positive always look to the future. Spent time looking at old TV archive of ever there was a black and white second world will picture I would see her scrunching your is up looking for her Charan's as if that would that Little Sean CB would produce a bit of evidence for her. She just didn't know exactly what happened to her and yet she looked at me, she squeezed my hand. She looked at everything she had created and she kept to her Judaism and our identity please never experienced what you did. But I. The, the your generation. I mean genuinely for me I'm lucky to have known. This generation for so long and thank you. Ever let doctors. Coming finally as I mentioned, we have a few days before Yarmulke poor. John Kapoor in one word a would be forgiveness. We ask God to forgive us and God tells us if you forgive each other if you forgive my children that I will forgive you. There's lots of people who are hurt in in much less significant ways than you have been and yet it's so lodge that lives for them to the garage and half the hate not forgive. What message during this period would you? Convey. Suitable people who will be both have some anger and hate in the Hawk as to how to overcome that and how suit forgive and how to be positive to move. I, hate. Poisons your own life and Zach. Lady Very Young from Otto Frank because as a came to our house naked did for seven, twenty, eight, twenty, nine than ever full of hatred and he who had lost everything. It always escapement said only cigna process is. Closed body lost everything and the lost the whole family and I don't hate. Germans. An Elvis said but how can use it's impossible must be full of hatred and said, no at just can't eight. and. If you hate people who suffer use of people you hate saint knows at you hate Cepsa don't your carry various about one stop. But you are you become miserable? And live in bed said. Yet will you come function but hey, it's a terrible thing and. that. But that coats still not so it off it took me a long long time to. But? Nevertheless, have enjoyed what was out made. A like a love live. and Said, help me to doc period as well and I like auto he said to me don't hate because you will sell for notes. Also people said this rent that can tell now to also people. Eight doesn't help you at toll. It only destroys you. So you'll feel feel much much better if you'll forgive. It for your own sake even not only for the people you forgive, but for your own sake. Eight and jealousy the star she'll know I mentioned I. think to you before that. There is a great anecdote from the third Lubavitcher Rebbe who says how come children sometimes gets into fights and five ten minutes later they make up. with yet adults. They get into, find some that's bringing in this anger and sometimes ten years they still didn't talk to each other. So the question you asked adults, intelligence children less so it should be the other way round. And he gave a very simple insight he says, children would rather be happy. THAN BE, right. Adults would rather be right. And Be Happy And when I look at you and anyone looks at you, as you said before, you chose life. You know over death and all those negative characteristics are really traits of death and destructiveness. As you said, because hate anger up really destroy life and not the life of someone else but more. So your own life at share on life as also told you. So obviously again during this period of Russia where the keyword did not the key, what is to choose life from we ask God to ibis in life life means to live life means to stay to have those positive traits and to try rid ourselves as best as possible from those negative traits joining sub to destroy us. Yes. If people can forgive several feed by chapter bear Inza own knife and mass shootings have onto achieve set. By deserve to be bitter in. Hey. I.
