Holocaust survivor shares heart-rending stories

(Continued)

According to Sperling, there is no such thing as closure to a survivor.

“You can never totally believe it is over and that you are safe,” she explained.

Sperling said she can only hope her stories help mold better human beings and can prevent cruelty. She said even when horrible things were happening to the German Jews, nobody, including herself, wanted to believe it was possible.

“I do not want anyone to make the same mistakes. You need to be aware of things happening around you,” she said.

“not just in your own local communities but all around the world, and see what might be staring you right in the face.”
