st.pauls 1st. Feb.2013.

So looking foreward for tomorrow when I will be visiting St.Pauls catholic Schooll in burges Hill.

I have been Invited to tell my life experiences During the Holocaust in Budapest as a 5 year old little jewish girl.

I have been robed of my childhood,but to me it seemed normal,never knowing where we would sleep,not knowing when we would eat,afraid of being discovered by the nazis. I though  every body lived like this .I had nothing to compair it with.As it happened My mother did the right Thing!  by hyding we escaped the gasschambers.When the war ended and Hungary was Lyberated by the Rusion ArmyI was 9 years old,So undernurished , I had lost my Hair,could not stand,had pneumonia waighed 3 st.  the Dr.gave me 6 month to live!   But   as you see      I am here to share  my story.    I AM A SURVIVOR!!!   aliv

I had an amazing Life,Singing kept me alive,Singing freed me from my bad memorys I could escape in to my own World!

I got a music Scolarship in yugoslavia,emigrated To Israel.went to a convent Schooll in Istanbul,Deported to Germany, returned to Istanbul as a Belly dancer at the age of 16,to finish my bacaloriat,thus  I had a double life!,

enrolled in to the University of Munchen.Discovered my love For JAZZ.

got signed up by a recording company.My first record was a Hit.ironicaly it was the German Public who made me in to their Singing STAR

I have setteled in the south of  England     this  is my Home .For few years now I have been a public speaker and talk  to Schoolls,colleges,educational talks about the Holocaust and why it must not be forgotten!  The young people have to realise that there is a Choice in life,To speak up or just stand by and do nothing. I feel  I have to speakup for so many who can not speak any more

Some one has to!.

Holocaust Memorial day service.

To have been invited to talk at the Holocaust memorial day Service,It was an Honour and a privilage!
To have survived is still a surprise to me.Not many of us are alive and able to speak up and tell their story
During the Holocaust. Millions of Inocent People have Been Tortured ,Gassed,Stripped of their posessions but mainly stripped of their dignity! This has realy happened!!!!!It is not a Good P.R.job.We all have to remember and remind people so that it should never again be allowed to happen!
Building Bridges,listening to each other,regardless of our differences in Cread ,colour or religious denomination.
Non of us can choose in to which religion we will be borne ,we have no choice,but we can choose later if we are going to just stand by and do nothing,or speak up and be a better person!
Seeing on paper the no.6 million,does not have the same impact as if you were to visualise, say the people of Sussex
would all be killed!!This is realy a chilling thought, but in reality that is what 6 milion and more killed might look like.
Their only Crime(if you can call it crime)was that they were Jewish!
We all have the same right for LIFE,Not only the jewish people have been persecuted and killed.It is still going on!
Will we Ever Learn?.The memories of the Holocaust do not just go away because it was a long time ago! It is always part of my life.Not that I want to remember ,I simply can not forget !When I was speaking at the Holocaust memorial day service in st.Mary at the castle in Haistings and christ church Eastbourne then The Town Hall Eastbourne sharing some of my experiances,it did not seem as if so many decades have passed,I was back in Budapest and that bad woman came and spat at me and shouted,”you stinking Jew”I was only 5 years old.Now I am 77.and i can still remember as if it was yester day.
On the 1st of Feb.I am Invited to Speak to the students of ST PAULS in Burges Hill.
I am realy Looking foreward ,it is So very Important to share with the young people the real experiences during this terrible genoside. Having survived the holocaust i can answer questions,If only a hand full of students can learn and stand up or speak up one day ,when someones life could be saved through it.
Once my Book of my memorie,that of a 5 year old girl to a pop star will be published,I will be able to share so much more.

 Holocaust Memorial Day is a very special  occasion to remember all those who  have been so brutaly murderd by the Nazis. Their only  reason to be  killed,humiliated or torchered was that they were Jewish! I am one of the Lucky  Holocaust Survivors!   As a 5 year old little girl I did not  even know I was Jewish, i did not know  that there was a difference,not until this Woman aproched  me and my mum  whilst  we  were walking on the street in Budapest   ,she stood  there lookong down at me and spat in my face shreeking  at me “you  dirty stinking Jew” This was my introductionto the things to come!

Living in fear  to be discovered,Hyding ,Starving,never knowing where we would sleep. .I have survived,but all my familly were Killed.I have the honour to have been asked to say  few words at the holocast memorial Service in Haisings at the St.Marys -in-the-Castle on the 26 th,jan2013. 11am.

The same evning I have  been asked to contribute  towards the Holocaust memoria service in Eastbourne Christ Church seaside at 7.30 pm .

on sunday the 27th jan.2013. at the Town hall in Eastbourne at 3pm  i will be contributing to the Holocaust memorial service .Not many of Us  are left who have survived ,We are the few who have been eye witnesses,  This  is why  i feel it is important

to tell our storys ,to encourage to BUILD A BRIDGE!This is the only way foreward,Non of us can choose in to which familly we are bourne in to,muslim,Christian,hindu,Jewish,This we can not change,but we can learn how to live together,to understant and respect our differences,in reality we are not all that different,
