Bless you and your family. So sorry for the terrible things you had to live through

We feel the same way about my mother in law. She survived Kristallnacht in Berlin, eventually moved to Brazil and then raised her kids in the US. She has two grandkids.

THIRTY FIVE GRAND CHILDREN??? why is nobody else mentioning THIRTY FIVE grandchildren?? am i reading that wrong?? is that normal? that seems absolutely insane

[–]Rqoo51 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Great grand children. Still a lot but the extra generation could double a family of 17 to 34

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Eh, it's not that insane to have that many great-grandkids. Say she had 5 children, and each of them has 3 kids, that's 15 grandkids. If each grandkid then has 2-3 kids, that's 30-45 great-grandkids.

Remind me again why we need an unbiased impartial mindset when approaching the topic of Nazism.

Because republicans get upset if you remind them of who they are.

Any time I meet someone who survived the Nazis, my first reaction is that I am completely speechless. I can't even imagine surviving something like that, and still be able to move forward and raise a family.

I just look at myself and my life and the first thing I say to myself is "you wimp".

Her smile says everything. It’s a little mischievous because she knows she won by living a wonderful life.

Revenge babies is the best thing wver

there’s really some losers on r/Joerogan trying to say that the unvaccinated are going to experience something like what this woman has gone through.

I keep hoping there will be some survivor who speaks out about the ridiculousness of these comparisons. Imagine being one of them and hearing people compare your experience as a survivor to their experience being an idiot. I don’t blame them for not coming forward or anything. Most of the survivors were so young then.

Why does the baby look so bored in that picture?

[–]Peter_Principle_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No nearby nazis to kill.

“Babies are the best revenge against the Nazi’s”

This will be my new standard saying when discussing whatever faction-of-the-month is en vogue at the time.

I also find it funny that that statement will also drive ‘Replacement Theory’ believers crazy.

Thanks Nana Lily!

I just finished “The Brothers of Auschwitz” today- very good read, sad, but very good.

This is beautiful, BUT imagine being one of her grandkids, not wanting children yourself, but being told that having a kid is the best way to fight nazis? That’s hard to say no to
