Holocaust Survivor Reunites with the Family That Helped Hide Her from the Nazis After 73 Years

https://people.com/human-interest/holocaust-survivor-reunites-family-hid-her-nazis-after-73-years/



In November 2014, Charlotte Adelman received a message 70 years in the making — through Facebook. The young boy whose family had hid her from the Nazis in a cellar for nine months during the Holocaust wanted to reconnect.

But the French-born Adelman, who now lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, had “never forgotten” Alain Quatreville.

Adelman, 86, was only 11 in 1943 when her Jewish family was separated, and her father orchestrated a daring escape to Eastern France, where she lived in hiding with the Quatrevilles for nearly two years.

Quatreville’s message, Adelman says, left her “enthusiastic.”

5. As these people pass, it is clear, from the rise of racism - with a racist in the White House and...

...elsewhere in positions of power - that this is being forgotten.

We must fight to see that it's remembered.

7. Remember what a sage person said.

"The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward Justice"

Evil can sap the spirits, it seem often that the vileness will never end. But, at no time in recorded history has evil prevailed over good in the final accounting. Evil people may make the history books, but only for the evil that they did, them as warnings to others to come. Good people get remembered in time and their influence spreads and grows over time.
