  • I beg my fellow Jews not to be ‘OVEN READY’ a term I detest. I lost most of my family to the ovens, the crematorium, and the gas chambers. My surviving first cousin who passed away, told me she saw the grandfather I am named after, shot to death by the Nazis and thrown on a truck. She also told me my father was married before the war and his wife and two children were murdered. This I found out before she died a year ago. Can anyone imagine how I feel. Never knew grandparents, aunts and uncles. GREW UP SEEING THE NUMBER FROM AUSCHWITZ ON MY FATHER’S ARM. MY MOTHER LOOKED OLD WAY BEFORE HER TIME FROM WORKING IN A LABOR CAMP THAT MADE BOMBS FOR THE NAZIS. FEEL MY PAIN. Israel must live. Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg a refugee born in a D.P. camp.
