Today, January 27, is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Would you like a unique and inside look within the horrific Nazi concentration camps? Clila and Hadasa Bau, daughters of Holocaust survivors Joseph and Rebecca Bau, gave us such a glimpse in a recent interview.
Joseph and Rebecca were the young man and woman who were featured in the movie "Schindlerâ€™s List,â€ who got "marriedâ€ â€“ as best they could â€“ considering the separation of men and women in the concentration camp.
After surviving the horrors of the Nazi death camp, they eventually found each other, officially married, and finally moved to Israel where he became the "Walt Disney of Israelâ€ in animation and film, building his own cameras and projectors from scraps of metal that he could find. Also intriguing is the fact that after 50 years, Rebecca shared "the secretâ€ that she had been the one who saved his life! In addition, he became involved with the famed Israel intelligence agency, Mossad, to try to track down Nazis who had escaped to South America.
Most moving is Joseph Bauâ€™s fierce commitment to having hope for the future and maintaining a sense of humor â€“ even in the terrors of the Nazi camp. His spirit could not be broken.
