What a privilege and an honor it is to listen to Bernard Offen talk about his life. It's so important that we have the opportunity to listen to Holocaust survivors so we can contribute to 'never forget' and so that we understand the depth of brutality that others continue to experience after the Holocaust (in Cambodia, Rwanda, the Balkans, etc). Spending an hour and a half with Mr. Offen was a deeply moving and important experience. I am very grateful to him for being willing to talk about his life openly with us.
So wonderful to spend even more time with Mr Offen. His story is riveting and a rollercoaster of emotions. He tells it with such honesty, emotion and love that you cannot help but feel it with him. He is a true hero!
It isn't often that we get the opportunity to hear history spoken about as life. Mr. Offen is a wonderful speaker and is able to convey the experiences he has had, both wonderful and terrible, in a way that is uplifting and moving. These two courses should be required viewing in schools across the country. Don't pass up this chance to hear history come alive.
