Goodness Persists

I wanted to focus Vera’s insistence on living a life full of love after the Holocaust. Again and again, Vera kept coming back to all the people who had helped her and her family, and the many wonderful individuals she had met over her life. She has such pride in her large family and her Judaism, symbols of goodness and love persisting throughout all the tragedy.
