Alice will celebrate her 107th birthday this month. She was in a concentration camp during WWWII and because she was a concert pianist, she survived. One might think that the experience would make her bitter, but no. Alice says that she has never hated -- hate only breeds hate. And she find each day a beautiful experience.
As a Buddhist, for me, her voice rings with the truth of Buddhist beliefs - life is precious and it is our goal to find happiness and joy on earth regardless of the circumstances under which we find ourselves. I would love to meet her in person. For now, meet her in the video which is a trailer for a new documentary short about the oldest Holocaust survivor in the world, Alice Herz-Sommer. Your life will be enriched in a short 12 minutes.
