“I’m more impressed with my grandfather than anyone else and the reason why is because when he was 13 years old in he was in a concentration camp in Auschwitz and he actually went into 18 concentration camps in total. He was on 3 death marches. Both of his parents were murdered. His siblings were murdered. He was shot and buried alive at one point and climbed out when it was safe. He was hung twice and sirens went off, false alarms, and he escaped. And when he was liberated finally at 18 years old, he literally had nothing. And when I say nothing I don’t mean low wifi or the battery died on his cell phone.”
Daniel’s grandfather went on become the owner of a successful hotel in Switzerland. He is remembered by the big smile he had when greeting guests. As Daniel put it, “and this was a man that had gone through hell.”
