Lvov, Poland

Sarah Saaroni

After surviving the Holocaust, I felt guilty that all of my family in Poland had been murdered. I desperately wished to be part of a family and to belong. I was proud of having actively participated in the creation of Israel. When Lewi and I married and then immigrated to Australia, we were able to provide for our children opportunities that had been denied us. Eventually, I achieved my secret desire to sculpt. I am proud of who I am, happy and surrounded by my loving family. The Nazis didn’t win – we are free and alive with a Jewish homeland.
