Reddit IAMA From Survivor of Twin Experiments from Auschwitz -
When I was 10 years old, my family and I were taken to Auschwitz. My twin sister Miriam and I were separated from my mother, father, and two older sis…
An interview with a Holocaust survivor on Reddit is simply amazing, if you have time to read it’s worth it. Here’s a question and answer I particular was moved by:
Q: I have anger. I wish I could learn to forgive and let it go. My experience is nothing compared to what you endured, and yet you are able to find forgiveness in your heart. How do you get to a point where you truly let it go? I’ve tried and it always resurfaces. I’m so tired of being angry, I feel it is making me old before my time.
Take a piece of paper and start writing a letter to the person or people who caused you all that pain and anger. It took me four months to write mine. Don’t stop until you finish, and at the bottom write “I forgive you” when you feel it in your heart. You have to feel the physical freedom from that pain and anger.
When my museum was firebombed in 2003, I asked myself, “Why would anyone want to do that to me?” First is shock, second is disbelief, and then you ask yourself, “Am I going to hate these people?” If I let anger take over, I am going to become a victim again. And even as the flames were still burning the building, I could see it was an easy way of slipping back into that victim mentality. Now I said I was very sad, and I was. But I would not let them win by becoming a victim.
Dear internet, this is how you gently and thoughtfully change people’s minds. No shaming, no yelling, just a nice nudge to, “Aha!”
I will aspire to use classy same tone next time I try to educate someone about something!
