I was so humbled to hear the story of survival of Dr. Alfred Munzer today at the Holocaust Memorial Observance.
Dr. Munzer was hidden for the first four years of his life from the Nazis by a righteous Indonesian family in the Netherlands.
Earlier this month, Dr. Munzer visited Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, to share his awesome story of humanity and compassion in the face of Nazi brutality and genocide.
Dr. Munzer told his story today through photos of his Jewish and Indonesian family’s life during the Holocaust, and related how his father and sisters were murdered by the Nazis; from his immediate family, only he and his mother survived to come to America in 1958.
I was so inspired by Dr. Munzer’s story and encourage everyone to hear it at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum where Dr. Munzer volunteers.
When people help other people, even at their own peril, that represents true globalization of the human race and the unity of all mankind. 😉
