One of my patients about 5 years ago was a holocaust survivor. He met his wife in the ghetto in Poland. When the camps were liberated at the end of WWII he was given a bicycle by an american soldier and he rode all over until he found his wife who was in a different camp. They were re-united and eventually moved to America. Each day on rounds he would share bits of his story. Hearing the small details in his deep, rich, accented voice really touched me.
We learned the story of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat to Hungary who saved many Jews by issuing them Swedish passports. When the soviets arrived in 1945 and liberated the city he was arrested and eventually executed. He is remembered as well along with others who helped save Jewish lives. "Whoever saves one Life - Saves the Entire World".
Impossible to leave here unmoved. Isaac you were with me today.
