  •  One of my father's cousins was in a camp and had (0+ / 0-)

    numbers tattooed on his arm.  He also must have lost an eye in that camp because he had a prosthetic eyeball that didn't fit him very well.  But I think you are right about how Hitler's evil impacted his whole life, even though he was a survivor.  He didn't marry, and was affected mentally and emotionally by it.  He had a really hard life.  One of the most amazing things that everyone in the family got to witness, was when he danced at my brother's Bar Mitzvah (back in 1976).  No one knew that cousin Steve had that in him.  Dancing and joy were definitely not something that his life after the camps had a lot of.  

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
