As the sole survivor of more than 2,000 Jews who were deported from my native city of Cologne, Germany in 1941, I fail to comprehend my improbable good fortune. I never stop asking, “Why me?” But there is no reasonable answer. I can only say that the experience provided a lasting lesson and a sense of what is truly important in life… relevance, reflection, patience, love and survival. Of these, perhaps reflection, patience and love will ultimately provide an acceptable solution.
